IRVINE, CA--March 19, 2014: The extreme winter weather conditions much of the country has experienced in February resulted in fewer shoppers on dealership lots. Consequently, March is a time for automotive brands to catch up on sales lost last month by offering a variety of new-car deals. The editors at Kelley Blue Book have assembled their list of the 10 best lease, cash back and financing deals available this month from a variety of auto manufacturers.

"This month, our list features deals on two 3-row vehicles, two gasoline-electric cars and two American icons: the Ram 1500 Quad Cab pickup truck and the Ford Mustang," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book. "The top spot on our list is held by the Chevrolet Volt, which gives its owners the option to go into full electric mode for up to 40 miles with the option to switch over to gas when needed. With so much to choose from, shoppers can feel confident they will find a great deal on the car that best suits their needs."

Below are the KBB.com Editors' picks for the standout new-car lease, cash back and finance deals, available through March 31, 2014:
