    Here you go Jay. Ford Credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Taurus SHO with 15,000 miles per year are 0.75% and 50%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are 1.0% and 48%.

    Hi Brad. Ford has indeed published a lease program for this car. Ford Credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Taurus SHO with 10,500 miles per year are 0.5% and 52%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are 0.75% and 50%.

    I'm a financial guy, but I'm still baffled by the lease calculation. Can anyone explain what the base lease rate equates to in terms of APR, and why it would change from 0.5% to 0.75% when going from a 36 to a 39mo lease?

    Hi, I am looking at a 2012 Ford Taurus SEL AWD with equipment group 202a, leather heated seats, moon roof.

    MSRP is 36980.

    Dealer is offering a price of 31,980.

    1. Is this a fair price for the car? They showed me invoice of 33102.00
    2. I would like to lease the car versus buy.
    3. Drive 15000 miles per year
    4. 36 month lease.
    5. What is the current APR/MF and residual?

    Dealer is telling me 4.9% and residual of 19,229. That seems off to me.

    Thanks!

    I am interested in leaseing a new SHO, I have never leased before and I was wondering what a good deal would look like? I have excelent credit. I would like to put 0 monty down, since it is a lease, unless that is not a good idea? Also, how do the SHO handle the snow? I know that they are not a explorer but are they able to get you home in a snow strom? Thanks!

    Hi jontyrees. Lease rates are essentially APRs. Manufacturers' interest rates on leases vary from model to model and from term to term.

    Hi Carl. Ford Credit's April base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Taurus SHO with 15,000 miles per year are 0.25% and 46%. the numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are 0.5% and 44%.

    The residual values for a lease with 18,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.

    Ford is providing a whopping $3,250 cash incentive on leases of the SHO right now.

    Hi tonyc76. Since you are new to leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles on the subject that are available here at Edmunds.com: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    In short, the easiest way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that you decide to go with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its base lease rate.

    I would be happy to use Ford Credit's actual lease program to work up a payment on the exact car that you are interested in for you if you provide me with its MSRP and dealer invoice price. You can find that data over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

    Huskie.......

    I just received the following information from a central Florida Ford dealer on the 2013 SHO

    MSRP 47375
    Selling price 42969
    Less rebate of 1000
    24 - 58%. Money Factor - .25
    36 - 49%. - .50
    39 - 47%. - .75

    I found most Ford dealers mark up those rates by at least a point however this is a great price on this car. Hope this helps! By the way those residuals were for 15k a year.

    Are there any recent updates on 2012 SHO lease values (found some nearby dealerships that still have 2012 SHOs they're trying to offload)? Also, any additional incentives besides the $2,500 shown on the Ford website?

    Ideally, 10k, 12k, or 15k lease for 36 months.

    Thanks!

    P.S. This is for Florida (southwest)

    Hey chad75. Ford Credit's June base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Taurus SHO with 15,000 miles per year are 0.5% and 49%, respectively.

    The residual values for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher. The 10k residuals would be 3% higher.

    I believe that Ford is currently providing a $1,000 cash incentive on leases of the '13 Taurus SHO through Ford Credit.

    The numbers for a 2012 model are 0.25% and 46% with a $3,250 cash incentive.

    Hi Carman,

    Are there any lease rebates on the 2013 Ford Taurus Limited models. Can you also list the money factors and lease rates for 24 mo and 36 month lease and 10.5k miles. Also, I went on Ford's website and the lease payments they were spitting out seem pretty low. A lease for a fully loaded Limited Taurus ($38k msrp) less $4k down payment (assuming I can get $4k off selling price with a combination of rebates/discounts) was $409/month. Do you think those are fairly accurate and that is something you can go to a dealer with?

    Thanks
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,518
    Yes there is kbill07. Ford Credit's July base lease rate and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 Ford Taurus Limited 2WD with 10,500 miles per year are 0.25% and 62%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are 1.5% and 53%.

    Unfortunately, the lease calculators that appear on manufacturers' websites are often not very accurate. I don't know that this is the case specifically with Ford's site, but it often is.

    Carman,
    Can you please provide the 2012 Lease rates and residuals for a 15k per year lease on a 2012 Sho for 24 months and 36 months

    Also does ford offer a higher mile lease 20K per year?

    Upfront mileage penalty vs at end of lease as well.
    Thanks a lot Carman

    Here you go sps9. Ford Credit's August base lease rate and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 Taurus SHO with 19,500 miles per year are 0.5% and 53%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are 0.25% and 43%.

    When negotiating your deal on this car, make sure to take the massive $3,250 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of the '12 Taurus SHO into account.

    New to the lease world and wondering if the lease prices will be the same amongst local dealers. I have a deal in the works for a 2013 SHO with Z plan. MSRP is 44500 and with z plan it drops to 40300. There is also around 2k in incentives. They said with 4k down, it would be $448 a month for 24 months and 15k miles. Not sure how they got that number but does that sound correct? Thanks. This is in upstate NY.
  • Hello,

    I was wondering what the current rates and residual from Ford were for the 2013 Taurus SHO. 36 month term with 12000 and 13500 miles are the 2 scenarios I am considering.

    Thank you.
