2013 and earlier GMC Acadia Lease Questions

    Hi garyb6. Since you are new to leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles on the subject that are available here at 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 money factor.

    I would be happy to use General Motors' current lease program to work up a sample payment on the exact truck that you are interested in for you. However, in order for me to do so I need both its MSRP and it selling price. Let me know what both figures are and I'll crunch some number for you.

    I see that you are considering trading in a vehicle that you have substantial equity in on your deal. There's nothing wrong with trading a vehicle in when leasing, would be in your best interest to have the dealer cut you a check for any equity that you have rather than using the proceeds from it as a down payment. Consumers who make large down payments on leased vehicles risk losing part or all of the money that they put down if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen. Have the dealer cut you a check for your trade instead.

    Could you please post the current lease information for a 2012 Acadia SLT-1 FWD. 36 or 39 month lease with 15,000/year.

  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Here's the information that you're looking for mason809. Ally's April base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 GMC Acadia SLT-1 FWD with 15,000 miles per year are 1.05% and 47%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are 1.05% and 45%.

    General Motors is currently providing a $4,975 cash incentive on 36 to 39 month leases of this truck through Ally.

    Thanks Car_man.

    The dealer has offered a lease deal with a $5500 incentive. I'm assuming that this a lease through U.S. Bank. Just wondering if you had any information on the U.S. Bank lease for a 2012 FWD Acadia SLT-1. Also curious if you know how long the $5500 incentive is available.

    Thanks again.

    You're welcome mason809. You're right, the $5,500 cash incentive is available on leases through US Bank. US Bank's current 36-month base lease rate for the 2012 GMC Acadia is 0.96%.

    I am planning on leasing a 2012 Acadia SLE:

    Dealer Incentives - $4975
    GM Card Earning - $700
    39 mo lease/12,000 miles =$378.53 per mo.
    Cash due at signing: $907.59
  • Hi Car_Man:

    I am about to lease an Acadia Denali, and I had a few questions about the quote I have received:

    The MSRP is $49,570, the dealer is selling it to me for $48,000 (this is the base Denali, plus Navigation and Rear Entertainment options).

    The lease rate is 1.37%, with residual of $23,297. I am getting a 36 month lease of $588 (including taxes), with no money down with delivery by end of April.


    This is the best deal I have gotten from 3 dealers - does this seem fair and is there anything I am missing or should ask about?
    They mention a $7,500 rebate is included - what exactly is that, and why does it not go to reducing the cost of the vehicle?

    Thanks for your help!

    I received a quote for an SLT1 w/ Navigation and sunroof w/ skylight for $453.89 per month (that is with taxes in the monthly payment since I live in Connecticut). All I bring to the table at signing is first month and DMV fees. Also, I was able to take advantage of the Conquest rebate since I also lease an Audi.

    39 months 12k miles per year

    The MSRP on the car is $45,220

    Best deal I found so far.

    Long Island; Got dealer quote for Acadia SLT1 AWD -no extra options and I have that $2k lease rebate b/c I am leasing a Ford.
    10k miles
    $374. is payment when I come up with tax, etc.
    May pull the trigger this weekend.
    Carman what do you think
  • O.K. I think I may actually have done too much research on the lease of this car. I am willing to pay a fair price as I understand the dealer needs to make money.

    2012 GMC Acadia SLT-1 AWD. MSRP $41,735. Cap cost $39,894. MF .0004 (.96%), Residual 46%. US Bank Incentives $5,825. 10,000 Mile Lease.

    2 Questions: cap cost (purchase price) seems high on this vehicle and the dealer is not looking to move. Anyone with experience on similar car. Looking to make a reasonable offer.

    Also the residual looks low. Any thoughts would be appreciated. This is probably non-negotiable??

    Also US Bank is charging $895 bank fee. Thoughts?
  • I love the Acadia. I own an SLT-2 and the features are phenomenal! Not that I’m a speed-demon, but I find the Acadia’s 2-4 gear really kick-up and eat the competitors for breakfast (minus the German-vehicles).

    The one complaint is the tie-down straps for holding seatbelts in the back. THEY BREAK! I’m a simplistic type, but I’ve broken at least three of those straps making them useless. Fortunately, my dealer provided a free body protection plan and the special diamond tri-coat painting fix-up, but there seems no resolve to the breaking latch-on straps.

    When purchasing the car, I would highly recommend insuring / procuring a sort of warranty per the interior of the car. Even with an 80k / 8yr warranty, it’s not covered!!

    My other major complaint is that the USB hook-up doesn’t recognize / charge a Microsoft phone (don’t make fun, it’s company provided). Hopefully GMC can remediate one of the two issues aforementioned; otherwise, the SUV is a great purchase w/ great mileage and storage.

    Cheers! & the best of luck!

    We're glad to hear that you're so pleased with your Acadia! It looks like you have a good working relationship with your dealership on the two central concerns that you currently have (the straps and compatibility of the phone); if anything arises that we can check into for you please be sure to get in touch.

    I am currently looking at a 2012 Acadia SLT-2, with an MSRP of 41,040. I was quoted an interest (money factor) rate of 2.15%, with a residual of 51%. The residual seemed a little high, as did the interest rate. Also told there is $5000 in current rebates on a 36 month lease. Does anyone have the current numbers?

    Hi Car_Man
    I got a quote for a SLT 1- $402 including 7.375tax with 2000 down

    MSRP = 43615, 15K Miles, 36 months, residual 21600

    I assume there is a discount of around 6000 and the MF is low. Can you please post the MF, Residual, Lease cash please? Is the quoted price fair or do you think I can find a better deal?

  • We talked to dealer today and this quote seemed high can someone help me

    Hi nmd3228. Sorry for the delay in my response, I have been away. Ally's July base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 GMC Acadia SLT2 AWD with 15,000 miles per year are 1.0% and 54%, respectively.

    There is a $3,000 cash incentive for everyone plus an additional $500 for loyal customers on leases of this truck through Ally right now.
