A guy I know ordered a sport in May and it still is not in. You could be in for a long wait. Did you pick it up or was it an order?

Hi Car_man, do you know what the October lease incentives and residuals are for the Explorer? My wife and I are looking at an XLT and Limited for 36/39 months with 15,000 miles.

Hi richmusch. Ford Credit's October base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Explorer XLT AWD with 15,000 miles per year are 1.0% to 1.5% (the rates very by region) and 55%.
The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are 1.25% to 1.75% and 53%.
The lease rates for the '13 Explorer Limited AWD are the same, but the residual values are 2% lower.

I would shop a couple more dealers, this seems high with the amount off money your putting down. Also you should check out different terms, 24mo. for instance. Ford has been very competitive with the 24 mo. Lease. You also mention trade, carefull they are not telling you $4500.00 and then not reducing the purchase price. Oldest trick in the book, give you more for your trade and not reduce the new car purchase price! Good luck!

Thank you for the feedback.
I'm just a little hesitant to put $4500 down (via trade) on a 24 month lease.

I totally agree! Keep in mind that if they are buying your car for $4500.00 you donot have to put all that money down .
You can have them cut you a check back and put down any amount you want and take the difference back. They basically are buying your car for an agreed price of $4500.00, you can put $500.00 down and request a check back for
If they do not want to cut you a check for what you want, find a new dealer ASAP.
