All of the top brands will make lower priced units that are relatively efficient and reliable such as Trane, Carrier, Lennox, Rheem, and so on. You can find a list of the top 10 here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/ac_ratings.html. Among this list you should find some reliable lower cost units.
One thing to consider is that the bulk of the cost of buying and installing a new unit is in the installation. This is also where you can avoid or create the most problems so you need to balance out cost savings you may get in buying a less expensive unit compared to cost to install and so on. You also want to consider efficiency ratings and lifetime costs to operate the unit.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
