I’ve got a 2021 Taco SR Double cab (15k miles) lease ending in February with $27,000 in residual value. I was initially considering another Taco - driving around in a hilariously underpowered four cylinder kept me out of a lot of trouble - but it looks like the redesign is 2024 and lease prices are way up (obviously like everything).
My partner wants to get a Wrangler 4xe (to hold, not flip) to utilize the $7,500 incentive before year-end. It looks like the numbers to lease/finance have been shooting up as interest rates rise - are they still a decent bang for the buck? If so, is there a clear winner between a lease or purchase? We drive city miles here in Austin and then go out of town on the weekends so mileage allowance isn’t really a concern.
Thanks in advance for any input. I haven’t followed the boards closely since I got my Taco deal in 2021 (thank you Hackers!) but wow, the times and prices have changed!
