Ford on Tuesday widened interest-free loan offers to include almost its entire lineup of 2003 model cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles, Reuters reported.

The new loan offers, coupled with generous cash rebates in many cases, were available with immediate effect and would remain on offer until January 2, Reuters added.

Reuters said Ford had previously offered zero-percent financing on many 2003 model cars but had not offered the interest-free deals on more profitable, late-model trucks and SUVs.

The compact Escape and full-size Expedition SUVs are not included in the 2003 finance deals but are both sold with cash-back offers of between $US500 and $1,000, Reuters added.
