I haven’t seen too many Ram 1500 deals on here lately so I wanted to share mine for anyone trying to lease one and needing a data point. I know this isn’t an amazing deal, but I recently sold my BMW lease for some profit and specifically wanted a Ram 1500 Laramie.
I did some research and looked at a handful of dealers and many were not willing to even come close to this. If we went back in time 2-3 years ago I might have just leased a cheap Tacoma as a 2nd vehicle, but the Toyota dealers in my area as of now wanted $475/mo with 1st payment DAS for a base trd sport with cloth seats. The payment is honestly more than what I had in mind, but I wanted the Laramie and I figure I can sell it for a significant amount more after I do a buyout at the end considering the buyout amount…
- My state does not have sales tax. Just a usage tax of half a percent.
- The truck was sitting on the lot for about 42 days which might have contributed to them discounting it a little more than normal. The truck also had 400 miles on it. They said it was due to a dealer trade from the next state over. Not sure how true that is.
- It appears that the dealer marked up my acquisition fee by $200, which is allowed according to the Chrysler Capital lease guide. The dealer wouldn’t budge on pricing past this point.
