2013 and earlier GMC Acadia Lease Questions



  • Can anybody tell me what the GMC Acadia (incl Denali) lease rates are for December 2012? Are there any capital reduction credits?
  • I am in the same boat curious what lease rates are now. My local dealer told me they cant lease the 2012's any more.
  • Hi jimmynan. Ally's December base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 GMC Acadia with 15,000 miles per year are 1.2% and 56%.

    General Motors is providing a $1,500 cash incentive on leases of this truck in December.

  • Car man-

    The dealer was pushing a 39 month lease, 10,000 miles for a 2013 Denali. Can you please let me know the incentives, residual and money factor?
  • CarMan do you have the numbers for February.

    Looking at a 2013 Acadia SLT-1, 12,000 miles, 39 months.

    Thanks in advance.

    I see the advertised lease is 299/month and 1999 down plus lic. Is this good or should I be able to do better. This is for the SLE-1 which would be a fine car for me.

    I have a 2003 Silverado and 2 old chevys if there is any incentive for that.
  • Sure slapshot54. Ally's February base lease rate and residual value for a 39-month lease of a 2013 GMC Acadia SLT-1 with 12,000 miles per year are 1.85% and 56%.

    There is a $2,000 cash incentive on leases of this truck through Ally right now.

  • Should we expect anything better as a special for Presidents Day weekend?
  • Good question 62vette. Nothing would surprise me, but I haven't heard anything specific about President's Day specials from GM yet. I'll ask around and see if anyone knows anything. It definitely wouldn't hurt to wait to see if they do anything. It's not like you're risking missing out on an offer in the middle of the month.

  • We are looking at leasing the SLE-1 Acadia.. Please tell me if this is decent or if we can do better. The only additional option is the Black Metallic Paint.

    MSRP: $35,440
    Cap Cost: $33,950 - $2000 rebate = $31,950
    Residual: 58% ($20,555.20)
    Term 39 months
    APR = 1.85%
    down payment = $0 (amount due at start is $992.07)
    Payment = $377.64


    Currently the deal is $1999 down and $299 per month + Tax. We chose to put $0 down so the payment is higher but I don't like putting much money down on a lease. It does feel like the Out of Pocket is high even though it includes the first months payment.

    Can you tell me if this deal looks good or should we be able to get a better deal?
  • laurie9973, This could never be a good deal. GMC only provide a 36 month/36K new car warranty. So you would be responsible for any failures no longer under warranty for the last 3 months of this lease. Have your dealer reduce the lease term to 36 months or lease a car from a manufacturer that covers the entire lease term. Hope this helps.
  • Wouldn't it make the payments higher?
  • laurie9973, Car man should know if a 36 month lease has the same money factor as a 39. Regardless, it is just bad when a major manufacturer burdens a lessee with potential repair costs on a car that is not their asset. Its a pity because the offers on these cars make for a really shrewd lease at this time. My 2 cents. Good luck!

    Something you have to live with... if you lease with 15K/yr, you are 9000 miles out of warranty.... the last 7.5 months of a 36 month lease..

    I've put up to 54K on a leased car, and have yet to have an out of warranty repair.... some luck involved, I'm sure, but the miles between 36K and 50K are the easy ones....

    Now, if you go look at the Acadia repair forums, that might scare you off...


    Prices Paid, Lease Questions, SUVs

  • I've leased a number of vehicles for 39 months, some with protection and some without and I've never had a problem. Perhaps it's because if the vehicle was a real dud the major problems would have happened in the beginning while it was still under warranty, but 39,000 to 48,750 (depending upon whether you do 12K or 15K for the allowance) is not really enough for the vehicle to begin falling apart. You're right, theoretically it is possible for a vehicle to have a problem in that coverage gap that one would have to pay to repair out of their own pocket...I just don't see it happen very often.

    I'm a gambler, I'll go the extra three months sans coverage for another $20 per month off on the payment ;).

  • Hey Car man, what do you think of this deal?

    2013 SLT Acadia

    MSRP $43,070
    Sale price $41,770
    Aquisition lease fee $595
    Factory rebate $2000
    Down payment $1500
    Net cap $38,865

    39 month lease 12K per year total payment including 9% tax is $465

    Total due at signing $2174 ($1500 down payment, 1st payment $465, Doc fees, title, ect $209)

    Is this a fair deal?
  • Car man never advocates a cash down payment on a lease. Your monthly payment would go up to about $509/mo. True Market Value says you should be able to get $2,117 off MSRP on this vehicle and this dealer is only offering $1,300 off. If you can get this additional discount you should be able to get the payment down to $485/mo with no down payment. (Just first month's and title).

    If you are interested in a vehicle like the Ford Explorer they have much better offers this month.

    Hello, was wondering if anyone could answer some questions on a lease for 2013 Acadia. Right now my current quote from my local dealer in San Antonio, Texas is
    3,000 (ttl) upfront
    525 security deposit
    1st months payment due
    Then a monthly payment of $462
    This seems like a lot upfront to my husband

    Also another question, we leased a trailblazer in 2006 and turned in 2009. Our new lease was declined til we submit a balance that was owed from that lease to gmac of $1000.00. They said once its pd they will approve new lease. Is that a tactic to get the balance due or would that really happen?
  • 62vette62vette Posts: 17
    I leased a 2013 2 weeks ago, total down was 2500, monthly payment 343, 12k miles a year. If you are looking at the base model that seems way to high. Really depends on the option you are including.
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi dkm7498. The selling price that you were quoted isn't bad...probably less than $1,000 over invoice. It's great that the dealer is subtracting the cash incentives from that, though GM just introduced another $500 to $1,000 op top of the two grand that you mentioned in March (it varies by region).

    As peperboy helpfully mentioned, I definitely always advise consumers against making capitalized cost reductions on leased vehicles. You'd be better off doing with a zero down lease, just making the first payment at signing and rolling all of the fees into the cap cost.

    Car man,

    We're going to be in the market for an SLT Acadia over the next 3 months in the NY/CT region, but really don't need it until early July. Is near the end of the month in June, right around 4th of July, going to be the likely best time to get a good lease deal (looking for 36/39 month lease).

    Assuming we want the AWD Acadia SLT with NAV system but without sunroof (if we can de-couple), what would be an expectation of monthly lease cost, assuming 730+ credit.

    I just picked up my 2013 denali with nav 49675.00 msrp. 3yr/36month lease with usbank
    paying 484 a month. Paid 1st and plates total was 655.00
    5000 in rebates 2000 GM rebate 2000 conquest then 2) 500.00 bonus cash rebates

    MSRP: $49.675
    Cap Cost: $48111 - $5000 rebate = $43,111
    Residual: 58% ($20,555.20)
    Term 36 months
    MF .00040
    down payment = $0 (amount due at start is $655.00)
    Payment = $484
    Also traded in month car had 7 payment left. They bought out car and gave me check for 1000.00
    Was quoted about the same price from 2 other dealers and was about same on trade in. This dealer was only one that had denali with no chrome wheels or upcharge for paint color.
    Very happy with my deal. Based on edmunds true car I think I did well.
  • HI - I'm new here and wanted to run a lease deal past the group.

    2013 GMC SLT 2 - Tow package, Nav, sun roof

    3,000 credit
    Trading a 2003 BMW Xit 120K - 4,000
    1,500 Cash at delivery

    39 month lease - 462/ mo

    Would prefer lease payment to be 399 per month. Any suggestions on how to negotiate the price, trade and credit to bring only $1,500 and get my payment to $399?

  • You didn't mention the selling price. You need to negotiate with multiple dealers. Also make sure they are using the buy rate for the money factor.

    GM is offering meaningful incentives it seems -- my out the door lease on a 10k / y, 36 mo lease was a little over 500+tax ($0 drive off) -- and the denali was loaded w rear DVD screen , premium paint and chrome wheels.

    would suggest emailing a few dealers first and comparison shopping. in my experience, in this day and age, if a dealer or internet sales rep is unwilling to give any starting quote on email, they are not worth visiting. But i guess this may work better in a highly competitive and saturated market like southern california than say markets where there are only a few dealers in the state.

    Hi danyc1. It's difficult to say what General Motors incentives will be like several months down the road. I suspect that the end of June will be a good time to get a new vehicle, but you never know.

    If you provide me with the full MSRP and dealer invoice price of the exact Acadia that you're interested in, along with how long you want to lease it for and what mileage allowance you need I can work up a payment for you. You can find this data in the New Vehicle Pricing section of

    We are looking at the SLT1 with AWD and the base navigation package ($795) and all 3 rows of all weather floor mats ($225). Invoice price is $41,484 and MSRP is $43,695. We are looking for a 3 year (or 39 mo) lease with a 12k per yr limit. I understand that guessing the incentives is the great unknown, but a ballpark pricing would be much appreciated. Also, would you recommend dealing with the Internet sales team or going in and negotiating the traditional way.

    Thanks so much.
