    Thanks Car_man. One thing I forgot to mention is I'm going for a 12k/yr lease or 10,500 if they have it. Do you have the numbers for these? Also, I'm glad you like the user id!

    No problem Joe. Ford Credit's 12,000 mile per year residual values are 2% higher and its 10,500 mile per year residual values are 3% higher than its 15,000 mile per year resids.

    Ford credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 39 month lease of a 2010 Escape XLT 2WD with 15,000 miles per year in Florida are 3.0% and 46%, respectively.

    When negotiating your lease on this truck, make sure to take the $1,750 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of it into account.

    Here you go, iwant2lease. Ford Credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2010 Escape XLT FWD with 12,000 miles per year in its Los Angeles region are 0.25% and 57%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are 2.75% and 48%.

    As you can see, Ford Credit publishes lease rates instead of money factors for vehicles. You can convert its published lease rates into approximate money factor equivalents by dividing them by 2400.

    When negotiating your deal on this truck, make sure to take the $1,250 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of it in the Los Angeles area into account.

    Hi vane2004. The easiest way for me to tell how good a deal this is is to take a look at this vehicle's full MSRP and selling price. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Without these numbers, it is difficult to tell how large a dealer discount you are being given and in turn if there is any room left to negotiate.

    Let us know what these numbers are and I'm sure that either myself or another knowledgeable community member will gladly let you know what they think.

  • I was wondering if you could provide me with the numbers for a 2010 Ford Escape Limited V6 with the 302A Rapid Spec Package for 24mo & 36mo for a 10,500 and 12,000 mile leases.

    I live in Chicago, IL (suburbs). I'm specifically interested in the lease interest rate (or money factor) and the percentage for the Residual Value of the car (if you know the $ amt, that would be great too).

    I am planning on buying late july, early august 2010.

    Thanks so much!

    I'd be happy to help you out, lilmouse1230. Ford Credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2010 Escape Limited V6 4WD with 12,000 miles per year in Chicago are 0.5% and 59%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are 3.25% and 50%.

    If you were to lease with only 10,500 miles per year, this truck's residual values would be 1% higher.

  • Car_man - can you provide the same numbers for August for the boston area for the 2010 Escape LImited V6 AWD and also, the XLT V6? (24 month and 36 month lease, 10k miles and 12k miles for both).

    Also, do you know if all of the $2,000 in rebates can be applied towards a lease?

    Thanks again!

  • Hey Joe . Ford Credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2010 Ford Escape Limited AWD with 12,000 miles per year in your area are 0.25% and 59%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are 2.5% and 50%.

    The lease rates for 24 and 36 month, 12k leases of the '10 Escape XLT AWD are the same, but its residual values are 58% and 49%.

    If you were to lease with only 10,000 miles per year, these trucks' residual values would be 1% higher.

  • Test drove last night.
    Liked the ride but not as good as the Rav4.
    They offered mf of 3.75% (.0015625) and 50% residual.
    I had xplan so payments would have been @415/month for 39 months, with 498 down. for a sticker of 27360 (25914 xplan price)
    I ran the numbers separately and they don't add up. He said there was a $1000 conquest cash but my figures came as $369 a month including 6% michigan sales tax.

    Hey guys,
    First time here and found some great info. I am returning a Fusion lease and looking for an Escape lease to replace it. I'm fortunate enough to have access to the Z Plan. I live in the Northern VA area for comparison purposed. They quoted me for an Escape XLT AWD with the 202A spec package. MSRP is $27,815 and the Z Plan price is $25,398. No issues there. However, the subsidized lease rate is 3.75 (how does this convert to money factor? Is it .00156) and the salesman said lease rates are usually in the mid 11 area which seems really high to me. The lease rate for a Fusion would be 2.25. This is for a 39 month lease with a $1500 Z Plan rebate going towards the initial down payment. Residual value is 54% or $15,020. Monthly payments would be about $381 per month.

    Everything seems ok to me, other than the lease rate. Am I crazy, or is this high? I know I shouldn't be complaining because of the Z Plan goodness, but I'm wondering if different dealers handle Z Plans differently. Any insights would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Alex :) :)
  • Hi Alex. The 3.75% lease rate that you were quoted on the Escape that you are interested in is right. The rates are just a little higher on the Escape right now than they were on the Fusion when you leased it.

    Car_Man, Just signed a lease on the above with 302A, Chrome Wheels, & Navigation System. MSRP was $34,600. They gave me several rebates Totaling about $3100. With only tax, tags and License out of pocket, mo pmt is $372 x 36 mo/12K mi. (.54 residual @ 2.25%) Good deal? :)
  • What information do I need to know (MSRP,depreciation value etc...) to negotiate a fair price with the dealership? And how do I calculate these numbers?

    Thanks

    Greetings fordescape1. It sounds like you are new to leasing. If so, 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 buy rate lease rate.
