Hey y’all - first big thanks to everyone on this forum, I’ve learned a lot by reading along the last few months. I’m trying to work a deal to get a 2018 F-150 SCrew + 4x4 (1st choice) or a 2018 Silverado Crew 4x4 (backup). This will be my first time leasing or potentially buying a new vehicle.
I thought I was going to have to get an F-150 XLT in order to hit my preferred specs: Technology with Apple Play, Center Console rather than the middle front seat but I found a dealer who has some XLs that fit the bill.
The best price he will give me is $33,100, which is advertised to everyone. He claims this includes all rebates and he can’t go down at all… it is the lowest advertised price within 1000 miles but I find it hard to believe he can’t give ANYTHING… Vehicle Sticker is $44,175. (Add $500 if I pay cash)
I asked about lease #s and here’s what he offered:
"$0 down – only first payment due at signing (tax/lic/title included in lease)
24/12k – 1.1% - 61% - $405 per month
24/15k – 1.1% - 59% - $446 per month
36/12k – 2.2% - 56% - $379 per month
36/15k – 2.2% - 54% - $405 per month
39/15k – 2.45% - 52% - $410 per month"
One of my problems is that I don’t have a great gauge of how many miles I’ll need (it’s unpredictable where work projects take me but 15k is about what I have been averaging the last couple years)
Now I need help. I have no clue what to ask or where to go from here. I don’t really have any preference between buying or leasing but would probably lease all things being equal.
Help me out guys. What info do we I need to be more informed here and please let me know if you see any obvious issues.
