ATLANTA -- As gasoline prices remain high, now is a good time to buy a large SUV, according to the recent Shoppers Insights report from the Trend Engine. In a tracking study conducted by, 66 percent of new-car shoppers indicated that they are more likely to consider a more fuel-efficient vehicle due to high gas prices, and shopping activity on the site confirms that interest in full-size and midsize SUVs has declined. Less demand for larger vehicles typically relates to more available incentives.

"Automakers have a higher need to offer deals on vehicles that are less in demand to move them off dealer lots, so there's a connection between shopper interest in particular vehicles and the number of available incentives," said Rick Wainschel, vice president of automotive insights at "Because of today's high gas prices, shoppers are showing significantly more interest in smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles, so there are more deals to be had on larger vehicles like SUVs."

Since the beginning of the year, views for new full-size SUVs are down 29 percent, and views for new midsize SUVs are down 11 percent. This lower demand for larger SUVs means better deals are likely to be available. In looking at the most popular full-size and midsize SUVs on in April, this is certainly the case. All five of the most-viewed new full-size SUVs on currently offer incentives, and the same is true for the five most-viewed midsize SUVs.
