Intellichoice.com has released its final best deals list for the year of 2008, and the final month has revealed a big push by the domestic auto industry to move their vehicles as they await bailout support from the government. The best deals are determined as the vehicles with the best ownership cost values within 33 separate vehicle classes. The selections are based on current vehicle prices, market conditions, and the lowest national manufacturer consumer new car rebate. The costs to buy, own, and operate each vehicle over a five-year basis is also factored into the best deals list.

December's list included one of the biggest number of changes to the list in months, with 14 total changes out of the 33 classes. 11 of 14 of the changes were American-made vehicles. With auto sales still in the gutter, James Bell, editor of IntelliChoice.com, noted that "this is among the most creative incentive eras we have seen" and "now is a great time for auto buyers, especially if they're looking for new quality from American manufacturers."
The following trucks and SUVs made the best deals list for December 2008:
