Does it makes sense to anyone that car manufacturers are selling 2014 models 8 days into 2013?


I just watched a KIA commercial showing a man and his family finding a place to park. The ad is showcasing the power folding mirrors on the 2014 KIA Sorrento. We are only eight days into the 2013 how can an auto manufacturer sell a 2014 model a year before the year actually begins? Is this a new way to make money for car dealers and manufacturers? Is this a way to rip off consumers by selling a vehicle that is going to be worth less because it is actually manufactured in 2013?

    The only perk is the prestige of having a"2014" model early. Dealers are the only ones that make out, initial price is high, trade in value will be for the 2013 manufacturing date on the door plate, and retail resale will be the 2014 model year.
