Dodge Ram Pickup Lease Questions

1356

Comments

  • Greetings nuhuskers97. The best way to negotiate a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that gives it to you calculate your monthly payment using Chrysler Financial's buy rate lease money factor. You should be able to negotiate an outstanding deal on the Ram Pickup that you are interested in. The light vehicle market in the U.S. is very slow right now in general and there is intense competition within the full-size pickup segment from General Motors' and Toyota's newer models, not to mention the segment's traditional volume leader the Ford F-Series. If I was in the market for a Ram right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of right around dealer invoice or even below (there is some dealer cash out there) minus the $500 bonus cash that is available on Regular Cab or $1,000 on Mega / Quad Cab models, minus the $5,000 lease cash that is available on it.

    As far as this truck's lease program goes, Chrysler Financial's money factors and residual values for the Ram Pickup vary by cab type. Are you interested in a Regular Cab, Quad Cab, or Mega Cab?

  • Hi. Thanks for the reply.

    I was in the market for a quad cab. I ended up turning my lease in 7 payments early and leased into another Ram 1500 SXT Quad Cab 4x4. The dealership paid off my lease and I got a new 27 month, 12k mile, no money down, they paid my first payment and transferred my bed cover and nerf bars for $339 a month.

    I'm hoping that was a good deal??? Other dealerships I went to had higher monthly payments with less miles. This dealership jumped at this so I'm guessing I may have been able to get it for a little less per month......

    I got a total of $7000 off MSRP ($5000 cash, $1000 bonus and $1000 lease loyalty). I hope March doesn't have a better deal!

    I saw the lease special of $249 for a Ram 1500 SLT for 10,500 Miles for 27 months and contacted an internet salesman about a particular truck. He told me, for the particular truck with an MSRP of $36,500, the lease would be around $265 after taxes with $4000 due at signing. He said the residual would be $18,257.

    I initially didn't want to lease a truck, because I wanted to mod it but this sounds like a decent deal. I planned on buying a used truck to keep my monthly at under $300. Is there something I am missing to this? I should be able to lease it for the 27 months than get a loan and buy it at $18,257 or walk away. It seems like a pretty good deal, just wanted opinions
  • My MSRP was $34,500. I got $7000 off in rebates, bonus cash and lease loyality. I didn't put anything down and they made my first payment which is $339 for 27 months and 12,000 miles a year. I want to say my residual is around $18k.

    The difference between $339 and $265 is $74 a month. If you take that times 27 months it only comes out to about $2000. I would think putting $4000 down to keep your payments lower seems like a little too much to me. I've never liked putting money down on a lease because I feel like I'm throwing it away then unless you plan to purchase the vehicle after the lease is up. That's just my opinion though.

    I would definately shop around if you haven't already. One dealership (which I almost went with) was offering $360 a month with only 10,500 a year. I walked away and by Monday their offer was down to $330 a month. I ended up going to 3 different dealerships and actually worked a deal with the 3rd dealership over the Internet and by phone before actually seeing the vehicle.

    Good luck.

    I am looking for the current DCFS lease terms for a 10,500 mile 36 month lease both for a SLT Quad Cab 4x4 and a Laramie Quad Cab 4x4 (if they are different).

    Thanks!!
  • slackjawslackjaw Posts: 32
    I am now being told that there are no lease deals exist for 36 months. Only 27 months. Hmmm...

    But I am getting 12K off the MSRP. So that part is good. Now working the leasing terms.
  • So glad to have found this forum!

    Need some help. I see nuhuskers got a great deal on his dodge and am trying to do the same.
    We are also in Nebraska...zip 68788,
    We are beginning negotiations on a Dodge Ram and just looking for any advice we can get. We are interested in a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab SXT. The msrp is 34825. We know there is currently 5500 available. How do you find out what the dealer's invoice price is? Would also like to get the residual and money factor.
    Nuhusker...might need to find out what dealer you went through to get as good of a deal as you did...
    Thanks
  • Guys can someone help me please. I'm emailing a bunch of dealers and I'm going with information from here and other sites. Is there any good lease's out there at all???? I got a dealer who is taking almost 10k off MSRP of a Ram 1500 Laramie but the leases seem to be way out of whack. The truck is 43490, and they would sell it for 35100. I haven't asked for their lease numbers yet because they are the best price, but all the other dealers lease's were way high in payments. Mostly over $500 should I expect the same from this dealer, are there just no more good leases. If you could answer quickly that would be great because I'm working on this deal as we speak.

    Thanks,
    Steve
  • Hi cynar10. As you may already be aware, Chrysler Financial no longer leases vehicles. That means if you really want to lease a Dodge Ram Pickup you would have to do so through an independent bank. I know that Chrysler has been running a lot of deals through Chase and U.S. Bank, but I suspect that their residual values and money factors for the Ram Pickup are probably pretty bad.

    If I was in the market for this truck right now, I would forget about leasing it. Instead, I would finance it through Chrysler Financial at 0% for up to 3 years or 2.9% for 5 years plus $1,000 bonus cash.

    Dodge has leasing offers apparently according to the website. It seems the leases are through GMAC?
    So are the numbers good? I am thinking with the high MSRP and highly discounted actual cost this truck may lease pretty well if the money factor is good. So whats the MF and residual for a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab, 4x4, 15k per year?
    Thanks!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi steevo. Yes, Chrysler Financial was shut down during the credit crisis and Chrysler began doing deals through GMAC after the government essentially took them over.

    If I recall correctly, Chrysler is providing lease support on one Dodge Ram Pickup trim level, but I don't believe that it is the Laramie Crew Cab. I'll have to look into it and get back to you.

    Thanks for looking into it...
  • I was looking into leasing a 3/4 ton pickup (dodge, chevy, or ford) for my construction company, but all the salesmen are saying leasing is dead. They quoted me prices around $900/mnth to lease. Is this true? thanks (eastern Montana).
  • steevosteevo Posts: 332
    Car_man ..
    This is what I found for lease incentives...

    2010 RAM 1500 LARAMIE CREW CAB 4X4 5'7" BOX
    # Offer 1: Get $3,000 Customer Cash Allowance plus $1,000 GMAC Bonus Cash[6] plus $1,000 Bonus Lease Cash Allowance

    So looks like 2 grand extra available to lease.
    Do you know the MF and residual for 3 year 15,000 miles .?
  • The ford dealership that gave me the $900 quote wouldn't give me any details, they only said, "leasing is not good right now". The Chevy dealer didn't run numbers and they said the same thing as did the Dodge dealership.

    It's like they don't want to lease and so are doing minimal work to investigate(??).

    In this rural area, i haven't met too many people that DO lease but it seems like it would be a safe choice for me and my construction co.

    Your advice???
    Thanks Car_man!!! I appreciate your knowledge!!!

    Do you have the Feb MF and Residual for Dodge Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 Crew Cab. 15000 miles. I know the residuals are poor on these trucks, but it seems there can be a huge swing between msrp and selling price making for an attractive number...
  • Hi steevo. I'm not sure if Chrysler is currently providing lease support on the Ram Pickup. I don't believe that it is. If you really want one, you probably would be better off taking advantage of the special financing program that is currently available on it, 0.0 for 3 years, 1.9% for 4 years, 2.9% for 5 years, or 4.9% for 6 years.

    I ended up in a Maxima.
  • No problem steevo. Excellent choice. The Maxima is a lot of vehicle for the money.

    Carman,

    Any word on if there is lease support this month on the Ram 1500?

    If so, could you tell me the rates for the Laramie 4WD for 24 and 36 month program with 15k miles per year?

    Also, could you tell me if there is any lease cash.

    Thanks again
  • brujan14brujan14 Posts: 3
    I've been quoted a residual of 45% (12K miles) for 36 mo lease, and 47% (12k miles) for 39 mo lease - Laramie crew-cab 4WD. There is a $2000 rebate that applies
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hello rman850r. Yes, Chrysler is providing support on certain Ram Pickup 1500 trim levels this month.

    Its current base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2011 Ram Pickup 1500 Quad Cab Laramie 4WD with 15,000 miles per year are 0.54% and 49%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are 0.54% and 45%.

    There's a $2,000 cash incentive available on leases of this truck nationally and additional cash on top of that in select regions.

    Hi Car_Man - in your last response, you mention the base lease rate is 0.54%. Is that the APR - equivalent to a money factor of .000225?

    Also, I've heard that the residual increase by 2% if the mileage drops to 12K/year, and by 3% for 10K/year. That would mean a 36 month lease with 12,000 miles would have a residual of 47% - can you confirm?

    thanks -
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Yes, brujan14. Your conversion was correct and assumption about the low mileage adders are correct.

    Is there any way you could let me know the current lease rates and residual for a 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 CC 6.7L Diesel? I'm having a hard time finding this info anywhere and the initial quotes we got are outrageous!

    Thank you in advance for your time

    If you bought a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Fiat "special edition" model in the past year or so - or if you are a dealer who sold one - a reporter would love to hear about it. Please email PR@edmunds.com no later than Wednesday, October 10, 2012 with your daytime phone number and a brief description of the car and your experience with it.

    Hey Car_Man

    You have always been a tremendous help with my vehicle purchases, I need your help again.

    Can you help with the Res and MF for 24mo and 36mo, 12k and 15k, for a Crew Cab 2013 RAM Sport, Laramie, and Bighorn if they differ? I also haven't seen any updated rebate info for May yet. Also Chrysler Financial has apparently been reborn as of May 1st. So I guess I need their numbers and Ally if they are still involved. I am also considering a Jeep GC so I will be posting the same question over in that forum as well.

    Thank you so much!
