What Make/Model 3rd row SUV is my best shot at a deal right now?
I got a great deal on an Explorer ST in March but my lease was up in August so I rolled the dice for something better. Now with the chip shortage, I’m finding even Pilot and Atlas deals seem challenging.
Here’s what I looked at so far:
Highlander XLE (seems the best deals currently)
Atlas SE, SEL
MDX 2020, 2022 (not too bad with 2020 models if I can still snatch one)
Subaru Ascent (found a really good deal on a loaner but fleet manager wouldn’t lease it to me)
Honda Pilot SE
Running out of ideas and time
Any leads appreciated.
I always look at total cost of lease. When you factor in fuel, hybrid is going to be significantly lower everything else being equal but given slightly higher MSRP, this might offset the savings over 3 years. Tough one to measure. Gut says it evens out. Never actually tried to do the math on that.
