    Looking to lease an Escape Titanium FWD for 36 months, either 10k or 12k miles per year. I am in NC. Any help on the money factor, residual %, lease incentives, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

    Ford lease numbers were only good through today (January 2nd). We'll have to wait until early next week to get the new information..

    I am confused about how ford expresses money factor, used to dealing with number like .00093 and the like, how does the 1.25% translate into that? Thanks, I am spacing out today. For anyone interested 15K per year on the SE 4WD is 55% after three years.

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 29,951

    Yeah.. not sure why Ford and GM have to be different...

    Divide that number by 2400 for an approximate money factor.... so, 1.25% would equal .00052

    Thanks, that is what I thought, btw, its .25 for 24 months on 4WD SE escape, 1.5 for 39, Residuals are 62% for 24 mos, 55% for 36, and 53% for 39.

    this is from dealer on Thursday, also noted that Ford collects auto excise tax monthly as part of payment.

    Thanks again, good luck everyone.

    Hello all,

    The better half is looking to lease a 14 Escape Titanium FWD this month, trying to give her an idea of what to expect in terms of expense.

    Any changes to the lease programs for March, or are the terms still 58% residual, 1.25% (.00052) MF, and $1500 lease cash for 12k miles/year (or whatever the closest equivalent is from Ford)?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    I show the same numbers for this month, including the lease cash.

    Thanks much kyfdx, I appreciate it! Wanted to clarify since I'm seeing a $2000 figure floating around, guess that one is for purchase only.

    Stupid Ford dealers here in eastern NC, a rural area. Sent emails to 3 local Ford dealers. Did not hear back from a single one of them...not one! Gosh I hate dealerships.

  • Firstly, thanks to everyone contributing to this forum community! It proved to be an invaluable resource when researching our current lease.

    We're looking to lease an SE or Titanium with: AWD, 2.0, navigation, leather, pano roof, 36 months, 15K mi/yr in NJ and need to know what the numbers are this month. May have read in this forum that a comparably equipped SE would lead to a better lease deal compared to the Titanium trim but not sure.

    Thanks in advance.

    1.25% MF and 55% residual for the SE AWD.. 56% residual for the Titanium AWD.

    If the MSRPs and selling prices are comparable, then the Titanium will be the cheaper lease, but the difference is pretty small. Not enough to make up for a big jump in MSRP, unless it's accompanied by a similar discount in selling price.

  • Hey guys got offered 279 per month 12k/year 36 month lease. No numbers were given just got told it is a sign and drive. Also I will be getting out of my current lease like 4 months early. All I know is MSRP is like around 26,500. When I plug the numbers myself it looks like they lowered msrp and made my cap cost -2500. This is in florida.

    Hard to qualify the deal without the MSRP and the selling price. Are they rolling in the last 4 lease payments into the new lease? Gotta watch for that ... just like rolling negative equity into a new loan.

  • I guess I will find out when I go to dealer and follow up if needed. Was just trying to see if the actually monthly payment of 279 seems reasonable based on the average everyone else is paying.

    Hello!

    I'm looking for May lease rates on a 2014 Ford Escape Se. 12,000 miles Northern Illinos.

    I am also finding Ford is offering $1000 "Ecoboost Challenge" retail customer cash, $1000 Retail Bonus Customer Cash and $1000 Competitive Lease Conquest cash, all of which Ford is advertising can be used together. I also saw there is $1000 Dealer cash available. Are these incentives accurate and able to be used together?

    Also since I live in Northern Illinois, close to Wisconsin, are the lease rates different if I shop in Wisconsin?

  • seanmwelshseanmwelsh Posts: 3

    Thanks a lot Michaell! I have another question that may not be related to this specific thread but I'm sure you will know the answer. Are dealers required to advise customers of the cash back incentives and required to include those incentives into the sale of the car, or is it merely descretion on their part? Do they generally take those incentives on the "back end"? And if I mention these incentives that I have found, by me mentioning them to the dealer, does that commit the dealer to using them in my deal or can they choose to do away with them and lose them in the "smoke and mirrors" of the deal?

    I have purchased a ton of vehilce's in my day and for the most part I trust sales personnel and management about as far as I can throw them.....literally.

  • carbuyingboycarbuyingboy Posts: 9

    Can anyone tell me what incentives I am able to get if I lease Ford Escape SE?The only one I am not sure about is can "Customer $ offer" be used toward the lease or just when purchasing?

  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 41,312

    Here's the available incentives for the 2014 SE (I picked the Provo zip code - occasionally the incentives regional).

    For leasing, there's $1,250 bonus cash through 7/7/14. "Dealer participation may vary". But I guess you knew all that.

    The way I read it, the $1,000 "Customer $ Offer" is only available if you purchase and finance. It is a bit confusing because the leasing bonus cash offer says you must "finance" through FoMoCo. In my mind, financing means you are buying a car and leasing a car is just paying "rent".

    You could double-check the fine print with Ford, but I can't get their incentives page to load at all.

    Stever, that makes sense. I have been emailing dealerships asking the same questions and nobody is willing to give straight answers without me going in.
    If that cash bonus was available on lease it would put me in a perfect lease payment I want.

    Well, try telling a few dealers that. And you can mention that you are looking at a CX-5 as well. Someone may whack the price down a bit. :smile:

    Good luck!
