Cars and trucks are more expensive than ever before. In order to boost sales and help consumers afford new vehicles, automakers are offering long and long terms for auto loans. This past week, Bloomberg reports FCA’s Ram Trucks division current offers the longest loans. Some currently stretch to 73 months. Jeep, Fiat and Chevy aren’t far behind.
