Here's the info that you're looking for, andre1. GMAC publishes lease rates instead of money factors for the vehicles that it leases. You can convert its published lease rates into approximate money factor equivalents by dividing them by 2400. GMAC's current base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer with 15,000 miles per year are 4.9% and 66%, respectively. The 12,000 mile per year residual value for this lease would be 1% higher. Its 36 month, 15,000 mile per year numbers are 4.9% and 57%. Its 36 month, 12,000 mile per year residual value would be 3% higher. The only lease cash that is available on the '06 Trailblazer in GM's Southeast region is on LS models that are equipped with a select set of options.

Thanks for the information. Regarding the lease cash, it appears that GM is offering about $3500 rebate in other regions (i.e. northern) but not in the SE region. Even though I live in the SE region, can I purchase a vehicle from a dealer in another region to take advantage of this large rebate? Also, why in the world would GM penalize its customers for living in certain regions by not offering rebates available to other regions? Seems like a very dumb idea to me for a company that is desperate to sell SUV's..

Are you sure the offer is $3,500 in lease cash? I know GM is offering this amount if you purchase, but I thought lease cash was generally a lot less than this? If this is true then you should be able to buy from any dealer in the SE region and have it shipped anywhere.
Car_Man, I have some dumb questions. I am interested in leasing an '06 Trailblazer LT with an MSRP of about $31k. I am in Las Vegas, which is Western region. First, is there any lease incentive from GM that you know of? Second, what would you say is a fair cap cost to negotiate down to with the dealer, specifically, how much would be a reasonable amount for the dealer to kick in as a cap cost reduction? I've read all the posts in this forum and haven't seen anything about a ballpark value one should target for the dealer's contribution to making a deal happen. $500? $1,000? $2,000? And again, I mean what the dealer kicks in, not GM.
Also, I saw a commercial on TV just now about a $1,500 down payment matching incentive on purchase or lease for the '06 Trailblazer that is good until September 5 only. It looked like a GM ad, but the GM website makes no mention of it. It was definitely not from one dealer only though. Anyone know about this? Is it possibly from a group of Las Vegas dealers that got together to offer this?
Lastly, what are the current residuals and interest rates on the 24 and 36 month lease options for '06 Trailblazers? I hope I'm not asking too many questions. Thanks.

Daer Host, or anyone for that matter, anybody know what the residual on a Trailblazer LT, 36 month, 10,000 mile per year lease is? How about first tier lease rate? Also, is there any lease cash available on this vehicle. I know that Chev. is offering the Sign & Drive program. Thanks for your help.

Can you give me some payment information on a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer LS with an MSRP of $28,910 and a GM Supplier price of $27,306.75. I'd like info for a 10,000 mile lease for 48 months.
I'm also considering another 2006 Chevy Trailblazer LS with an MSRP of $28,705 and a GM Supplier price of $27,135.37. Also, for a 10,000 mile lease for 48 months.
Is GM offering any lease cash on 2006 Chevy Trailblazers?
Thank you so much for your assistance.

Hi andre1. The $3,500 cash incentive that you mentioned, which has since changed to $4,000, is not compatible with leases through GMAC. GM is providing lease cash on the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer in some regions, but not the Southeast. Unfortunately, I believe that the incentives that you qualify for are based upon your residency, not where you purchase your vehicle. So you have to actually live in an area that has lease cash on the Trailblazer to take advantage of it. GM isn't trying to penalize its customers in certain areas by providing larger cash incentives in others, it probably is just having more trouble selling the Trailblazer in the areas that it has lease cash on it. Either that or there is just a glut of inventory in those areas, which usually goes hand in hand with slower than expected sales.

Hi framirez. I am not aware of any lease cash that is available on the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer in GM's Western region right now. This late in the model year, you should be able to negotiate a capitalized cost of right around dealer invoice on a leftover 2006 Trailblazer without too much trouble. You can always stop by the following discussion to see how much other community members have paid for similar trucks recently: "Chevy Trailblazer/GMC Envoy/Olds Bravada: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".
The $1,500 incentive that you saw advertised was a special bonus cash incentive that GM was providing on this truck over the Labor Day holiday. Unfortunately, it is no longer available.
Here's the current lease program for this truck. GMAC's current base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer with 15,000 miles per year are 4.9% and 66%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are 4.9% and 57%.

Hello pgh111. Here's the information that you are looking for. GMAC's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer with 10,000 miles per year are 5.9% and 60%, respectively. Since you mentioned the "Sign & Drive" promotion, it sounds as though you are in GM's Northeast region. Correct me if I am wrong. In its Northeast region, GM is currently providing $1,250 lease cash on the 2007 Trailblazer. Make sure to take this cash into account when negotiating your truck's capitalized cost.

I'd be happy to help you out, oakridge067. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer LS with an MSRP of $28,910 and a selling price of $27,306.75 through GMAC right now for 48 months with 12,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $337. I calculated this lease based upon 12,000 miles per year because the longest 10,000 mile per year lease I have seen is 36 months. I'm not sure if GMAC allows 48 month leases with only 10,000 miles per year. The payment for an otherwise identical lease of a truck with an MSRP of $28,705 and a selling price of $27,135.37 would be around $335. GM's lease cash on this truck varies by region. If you tell me what state you are in I would be happy to tell you what its lease cash is for this model in your area.
