#197 of 297 Re: Need June Lease Numbers for Trailblazer LT SS [andre1]
Jun 11, 2006 (6:59 am)
Hey andre1. If you were to lease any 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer through GMAC right now for 24 months with 15,000 miles per year, its base lease rate and residual value should be 4.9% and 66%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease should be 4.9% and 57%. If you were to lease with only 12,000 miles per year, the 24 month residual value would increase by 1% and the 36 month residual value by 3%. I believe that GM is currently providing $1,250 lease cash on this truck.

#198 of 297 Are these lease numbers good?
Jun 13, 2006 (9:56 am)
I was given a 39 month 12k lease payment quote of $440 today on a 06 TBSS LT with an MSRP of 40,800. I have to put the first payment down and security deposit. They are giving me supplier pricing of $36,730 with an additional MFG rebate of $2,500. The truck is fully loaded (Navigation/Bose) and lacks only the rainsense wipers. They are telling me there is absolutely no negotiating room is this true? Is this a good deal?

That deal is not bad, but you could have done a little better. If you go to www.fitzmall.com or www.carmax.com, you will see bottom line prices in print for available 06 Trailblazers (including the SS). You can use these published prices for your local dealer to try and beat. The lease numbers for 36 months and 15K miles per year are 57% residual and 4.9% interest. Based on this information, your payment should be in the high $300's instead of mid $400's per month, and that's for 36 months, not 39. The dealer probably marked up the lease numbers to get your payment to $440.

Hi car_buyer3. GM's supplier purchase price is a reasonable price for this truck. Just make sure that the dealer that you are working with is using GMAC's base lease rate of 4.9% to calculate your truck's lease payment and you should be good to go.

Welcome justwonderin1. Since you are new to the world of leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.
Once you have checked out these articles and understand the basics of leasing, stop back in this discussion. If you provide me with the MSRP and selling price of the truck that you want along with how long you want to lease it for and how many miles per year you need to be able to drive it I will be happy to give you an idea of what its monthly payment should be like right now.

Jul 03, 2006 (12:42 pm)
Are the July lease factors (money factor, residual) the same as June for the 2006 Trailblazer SS? If not, can you give me the lease factors for the following:
24 months, 12K and 15K miles per year
36 months, 12K and 15K miles per year
#204 of 297 2006 TrailblazerLT Lease
Jul 09, 2006 (8:04 am)
My wife and I are looking into a 2006 Trailblazer LT, pretty much loaded. Per the internet, the MSRP is $33,660. My wifes grandfather was an engineer at GM, so we qualify for the GSM price, which is $30,186.33 (again per the GM Family First website). Right now there is $3750 in cash back incentives. So, I am coming up with a Cap Cost of $26,436.33. Am I calculating that right with the incentive?
We are looking for a 36 month lease with 12,000 miles per year. Can you estimate payments for me? It sounds like the residual value would be 57% or 60%. How do I convert Chevy's 4.9% lease rate into a money factor?

Hey andre1. GMAC does not use money factors to calculate the interest portion of lease payments. Instead it uses lease rates, that look just like normal interest rates. You can convert its published lease rates into approximate money factor equivalents by dividing them by 2400. If you were to lease a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS though GMAC right now for 24 months with 15,000 miles per year, its base lease rate and residual value should be 4.9% and 66%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month, 15,000 mile per year lease should be 4.9% and 57%. With only 12,000 miles per year, the 24 month residual value would be 1% higher and the 36 month residual value would be 3% higher. When negotiating your lease on this truck, keep in mind that GM is currently providing $1,250 lease cash on it. This incentive will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost for your lease.

Hi jonscoggs. Unfortunately, the $3,000 customer cash that is available on the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer is not compatible with leases of it through GMAC. GM is only providing a $1,250 cash incentive on leases of this truck right now. Assuming that the price that you got from the Family First site is not already taking this cash into account, this truck's capitalized cost would be around $28,936. Using this cap cost and an MSRP of $33,660, I estimate that this truck's 36 month, 12,000 mile per year, zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $344. I used a lease rate of 4.9% (it is just a coincidence that this rate is the same as this truck's current rate for conventional loans) and a residual value of 60% to arrive at this payment.
