  • I just got a quote from my dealer on a 48 month lease:

    $5k down,
    MSRP $67,665,
    total cap cost $50,751,
    residual value (36% + 3% adjustment for 12000/yr miles) or $26,389.
    Monthly payment $601.75 + tax = $648.39
    I do not have the money factor.
    Is this a good deal??
    Thank you for your help!!!

    Hello brown0209,
    Where did you get this deal and on what trim?
  • moguptmogupt Posts: 20
    Hey dksksk,
    what is conquest rebate and is it instant?
  • dkskskdksksk Posts: 3
    yes, you must have another make car under lease in houshold ie, bmw, merced, lexus, etc etc. Just wondering if GM is giving dealer an additional $5350. Would love to know
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Yes, dksksk, the lease cash and the conquest incentive can be combined. That's a lot of cash :surprise: .

    Car_man,
    Is Cadillac releasing a redesigned 2013 model and hence trying to get rid of 2012 models?
    Also,
    I am getting 2012 Escalade Premium at following numbers:
    MSRP: 72,855
    Selling Price: 69,500
    Factor: .00045
    Down: 7000cash+1865.7(Tax, Tag and Title)
    Residual:42%
    Payment: 695+tax
    Dealer claims he has counted all rebates and incentives. Do you also think so?
    And does the deal look good to you going by today's market trends? :confuse:
  • moguptmogupt Posts: 20
    Car_man,
    Please reply...I need to make a decision on this.
    Your help is much appreciated.

    Hello dksksk,
    Were you able to combine 5350(GM Cash) and 7275(US Bank) as you asked?
    I dont qualify for conquest rebate.
    Thanks a bunch in advance for the reply.

    Hi CarMan,

    Can you please provide the MF and residual % for an ESV (both RWD and AWD) at 10,000 miles. Is there any cash being offered for this vehicle and can that be combined with conquest cash (not sure that is still around)? I've heard of leases going below 10,000 ... as we are pretty safe with 8,000 I am also wondering if anyone has experience getting a lower miles lease from Ally.

    Thanks!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi lawkids. Ally's April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV with 10,000 miles per year are 1.0% and 44%, respectively. I think that this is the lowest mileage allowance that Ally offers, but it wouldn't hurt to ask the dealer to make sure.

    GM is providing a $5,350 cash incentive on 36-month leases of this truck through Ally.

    GM is scheduled to introduce new programs some time tomorrow, May 1st. Please feel free to check back with me for an update.

    Thanks Car_man. It didn't occur to me that May was just around the corner. It would be great if you could provide the new rates when they arrive. I am also interested in a 39 month lease term.

    Thanks!
  • mkbondmkbond Posts: 6
    Car_man: Do you have the May rates, residuals, conquest cash and dealer/Ally cash for May yet? I'm looking at a 36mo or 39mo low-mileage Platinum ESV. I own an '04 Escalade and have a current Nissan lease. I live in TX and am looking for all available cash. THANKS!!!
  • fulltankfulltank Posts: 4
    Car_man - has GM published May lease rates yet? Looking for a low miles Luxury or Premium ESV both at 36m and 39m. We qualify for the conquest program if that is still in place. Also wondering if the large cash $'s from April have continued.

    Much appreciated!

    You're welcome lawkids. Ally's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV AWD with 10,000 miles per year are 0.95% and 44%, respectively.

    GM is providing a $4,625 cash incentive on 36-month leases of this truck through Ally.

    I believe that GM is also waiving the first month's payment on leases of this truck this month.

    Sure mkbond. Ally's May base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Escalade ESV with 15,000 miles per year are 0.95% and 41%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are 0.95% and 39%.

    There is a $4,625 cash incentive on 36 to 39-month leases of this truck this month. There's another $3,000 on top of that for current lessees of non-General Motors vehicles.

    Yes fulltank. Ally's May base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV Luxury AWD with 15,000 miles per year are 0.95% and 41%, respectively. The 39-month numbers are 0.95% and 39%.

    The lease rates are the same for the Premium AWD, but its residual values are 1% lower.

    This month there is a $4,625 cash incentive on 36- to 39-month leases of this truck plus an an additional three grand for current lessees of competitive vehicles.

    There is also $5,500 in cash incentives through US Bank and $3,000 competitive cash making the payment $15 to $20 less than Ally Bank. Should look for a selling price of $5,800 to $6,000 off of MSRP plus $8,500 in cash incentives. Good Luck!
  • fulltankfulltank Posts: 4
    Thanks insidecarbuy ... two questions:

    (1) I did see that US Bank had 5,500 on offer. I have also seen other amounts listed under "CCR Cash GM US National" (8,500 from Ally and 7,900 from GM Financial). Do you know if these are also cash incentives for leasing programs, or am I misreading the data.

    (2) The discounts off of MSRP of 5,800 to 6,000 would put me below invoice price. Is that what these trucks are going for? I figured that invoice would be a good target, but this has me re-thinking that strategy.

    Thanks

    Thanks Car_Man!
  • lawkidslawkids Posts: 7
    Thank you very much. When you say that GM is waiving the first month's lease payment, does that just add to the cap cost of the vehicle? Does that cash depend on which bank the lease is through?

    You're very welcome fulltank.

    No problem lawkids. General Motors is actually paying the first payment for lessees, not just adding it to the cap cost. I think that offer is available through both Ally and US Bank, but I don't think that it is available on leases through GM Financial.

    Car Man,
    What are the best rates on a regular Escalade AWD Luxury with NAV and DVDs for a 12,000 mile per month 3 year lease. Thanks.
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi abp2. Ally's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Cadillac Escalade AWD Luxury with 12,000 miles per year are 0.95% and 43%, respectively.

    When negotiating your deal on this truck, make sure to take advantage of the $4,625 cash incentive that the General is providing on 36-month leases of it through Ally.

    Hi Car_Man ... do you know if June residual %'s went up? I have a May quote on a Luxury ESV at 10,000 miles using a 42% residual; and a June quote on a Premium ESV at 10,000 miles also using a 42% residual. I had thought that Premium rates were 1 point less than Luxury. Do you know if June residuals on a Luxury ESV at 10,000 miles went up 1 point from May to 43%?

    We didn't make the cut-off for May and I am now wondering if we should wait until the July rates come out to close on a lease. Any thoughts on if rates will improve or not going into the summer?

    Thanks!
  • lawkidslawkids Posts: 7
    Car_Man ... thanks for your help. The wife is in a new ESV as follows and she is happy (which is what really matters in the end). For my sake, let's hope that July rates don't go through the roof!

    2012 Escalade ESV
    Luxury RWD
    White Diamond + Cocoa Interior
    2nd Row Bench Seat
    Auto Retractable Side Assist Steps
    Entertainment System (2nd and 3rd row)
    Chrome Exhaust Tips and Rear Cargo Mat as dealer accessories

    MSRP with dealer accessories = 75,300 (without = 75,075)
    Selling Price = 68,550

    Original monthly payment was $853 including tax with $1,271 TTL drive off via Ally ... but we rolled the TTL (at these rates how could you not) and 299 worth of add-ons (extra sensor alarm and wheel locks ... necessary in the greater LA area) so our monthly comes in at $894 with zero drive offs.

    Now just need to cable lock the 3rd row seats and sell the 2010 Audi Q5 and we are squared for the summer.

    Take care.

    Could you please provide the lease rates on a 2012 Escalade for July with residual values for Ally and US Bank?
