Equinox Lease DealThe Equinox Lease Deal from June was so good that GM is doing it again. Current, non-GM car lessees or owners can lease the Equinox for just $189.00 a month with $409.00 due at signing. The .73% LVR rates as a Rare Gem on my Car Lease Calculator.

Equinox Lease Deal vs Tiguan

Even the extraordinary Equinox lease deal faces great competition from Volkswagen, Infiniti, and Jeep.  Low average car payments on SUV’s include the Volkswagen Tiguan for just $221.00, the Jeep Cherokee LTD for $295.00, and the Infiniti Q50 AWD for $396.00. Perhaps, the best news of all is that great lease deals on SUV’s have become the norm. Better fuel economy and lower gas prices nationwide have probably played a role.

Lexus hits Trifecta

All three of the featured Lexus lease deals this month have LVR ratios below 1.0%: The IS 250AWD, the Lexus RX 350AWD, and the Lexus ES350.  Leasing a Lexus has become just as competitive as Infiniti and Acura. Traditionally, Infiniti and Acura have had very strong leases Due to some newly released models, these two luxury car makers have slipped a little, but are still offering excellent values, overall. BMW continues to offer good leasing in the luxury market, where-as Mercedes remains at the bottom of the list as usual. Don’t let this discourage you from leasing a Mercedes. It just means you might have to do a little extra work at the negotiating table.

July Lease Deals Overall

Aside from the Equinox lease deal, July is an excellent month to lease a new car. Overall, there are 13 lease deals rated as excellent and above, and nearly 30 deals in all rated as very good.  There are quite a few 24 month lease offers. I’ve always felt that 24 months is too low for a lease term. Remember, these are just suggested manufacturer lease offers. Always ask your dealer for a better deal.

Equinox Tops SUV Lease Deals

$189.00 a Month

June Car Lease Deals

Equinox Among the Best SUV Lease Deals Ever Published

Much to the delight of non-GM lessees seeking an SUV for next fall, this month’s Chevrolet Equinox is perhaps one of the best SUV lease deals ever advertised. GM seems to alternate their best incentives between current and non-current GM owners and lessees. Both the Impala and Malibu have deals which are more favorable to current GM drivers. The Equinox deal, however, will save you about $1,500 if you are not currently the lessee of a GM vehicle. So, if you are currently leasing another SUV like a Honda, Mazda, Toyota, VW, Nissan, etc., you can take advantage of this great deal: Lease the Chevrolet Equinox for just $189.00 a month with $399 down for 24 months. That makes the average cost of leasing an Equinox around $197.00 per month, making it one of, if not the best SUV lease deals ever. Current GM Lessees will have to pay $1,5000 more, making the average car payment around $252.00 per month. Even that is a good deal on a vehicle with an MSRP of $27,045.  One can assume that even if you are trading in a GM vehicle, you can still take advantage of the better offer as long as you are not replacing it with a current GM lease.

Besides the Equinox, the VW Tiguan Leasing is still going strong at $179.00 per month with $2,499.00 down. For most situations, the 36 month term is a much better lease term than 24 months, so if you’re interested in the Equinox deal, you might negotiate that up to 36 months. Missing from this month’s lease offers was the excellent, but hard-to-find deal on the Jeep Cherokee LTD which seemed to only be available in certain locations. Still, there are some good SUV lease deals which are making a top 10 showing for LVR values for the month of June. Also, Infiniti Lease Deals continues to have excellent, low payments on its sedans such as the Q50 AWD which leases for an average payment of around $396.00. Many of this month’s deals are carryovers from the May Lease Deals. There is something to be said for consistency and stability in the car leasing industry these days.

Tremendous Lease on the Jeep Cherokee LTD 4×4 still going on …

Jeep Cherokee LTD LeaseThe lease deal on the Tiguan to the left continues to be one of the most outstanding lease values of the year. However, this is not the only great deal on an SUV. A few car leasing and Jeep fans across the country were somewhat disappointed when they could not find the great deal on the Jeep Cherokee LTD model that was listed in the April lease deals here. This was not a misprint, but after doing some quick research, I could no longer find the deal anywhere even when I searched the Jeep website within my own zip code. Apparently, the deal was only listed in Colorado and a few other states. I am not sure why unable to find the deal in my own state, but the good news is that it is back on – that is, at least for some states. This month, the Jeep Cherokee LTD can be leased in the Denver metro region for just $199.00 a month with a $3,259.00 down payment. That translates to a monthly average car payment of $284.00. This really is an excellent deal when you consider that the LTD is loaded with leather heated-seats, 8″ touch screen, and other technology.

Can you Lease the Cherokee 4×4 LTD in your State?

Jeep Cherokee Lease DealI suspect that other states in the U.S can offer pretty much the same lease deal, but for whatever reason have chosen not to promote it in place of rebates, and other discount offers. If you like this deal and it sounds too good to be true, visit the Jeep website, select Incentives and Offers, then change zip-code to 80033. Print out the offer show above on the Jeep Cherokee Limited 4×4 and show your dealer. See what they can do for you!

Small SUV Heaven

The deals on smaller sized SUV’s or Crossovers are better than they have ever been at any other time in history. In addition to the Cherokee, the Tiguan, Equinox, Acura RDX, and Laredo all have lease value ratios below 1.01% and are ranked in the top-10 for this month’s lease deals.


Best Sedan Lease for May

The most improved, best lease bang for the buck on a family sedan this month happens to be the Toyota Camry. You can lease a new Camry LE for an average payment of $235.00 (nothing down) for 36 months. There are plenty of other good lease deals. Check them out, here.  Continue reading »

Jeep Cherokee LTD Lease DealIf you lease cars regularly, it really pays off to keep a careful watch on the manufacturer’s listed special offers. You will notice varying trends from state to state, and from car maker to car maker. This month, a few of the advertised specials from last month remained the same while others car makers either raised their monthly payment or increased the cap reduction. If you saw an offer that enticed you, but you weren’t quite ready to buy until it was too late, bring this history up with the dealer before you negotiate.

One lease deal that hasn’t changed is the Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T which was last month’s top lease deal. Overall, small to mid-sized SUV lease offers continue to improve significantly. Recent research shows that people are buying larger vehicles again, including SUVs. With that said, it is still rather surprising and unusual to see 3 of the top-5 lease offers as SUV’s.

Edging out the Tiguan this month is an excellent lease deal from Jeep. You can lease a Jeep Cherokee LTD 4×4, well-equipped for just $299.00 a month and only $2,159.00 down. As Lease Value Ratios go, this one comes in at an outstanding 0.89%. Take a good look at the specs and features on the Jeep Cherokee LTD 4×4. It is an impressive SUV for the money. Jeep has come a long way since leasing became popular again 5 years ago. As you may notice from the website’s build and price calculator, this vehicle normally leases for over $407.00. It is rare to find an SUV equipped this well for an average car payment under $300.00.
