2011 Ford Lease Rates – December 2010

logo_fordMy Take: I know, the Monthly-Round was supposed to be my last post of the year, but I couldn’t help but look around at the Ford Edge’s lease rate’s since I plan to go test drive one next week. To my surprise, there’s what I found…

2011 Ford Edge Sport FWD

MSRP $40145
Sale $35690
Monthly $429 + tax
Rating 92.04

Not bad huh? This deal effectively qualifies the Edge as a “Missing the Cut” candidate, which is pretty impressive for a domestic brand. Now the debate isn’t really about whether this is a good deal or not. Instead, one has to ask oneself whether they really want to lease a $40k Ford Edge over a luxury brand. I will have that answer after I’ve driven it.

Happy Holidays!

  1. Exactly the deal I’m looking for.
    None of the dealers in my area are willing to touch those numbers.
    What area or dealer where you working with?

  2. So what did you think post test drive?

    I have a 2009 Audi A4 coming off lease soon, and I’m curious about picking up an Edge this year as well…

    The pricing is really attractive versus a Q5 or X3.

  3. @derek. The pricing was based on So Cal region using TrueCar.com.

    @amar. drove it last week. first impressions is that its feels big (and heavy). But the V6 is surprisingly adequate and its supposed to return solid MPG for a SUV. Interior quality is still a notch below any luxury brand. The leather isn’t as supple, the plastics are hard but somewhat flimsy. MyFord Touch is nice, but the menus seems somewhat sluggish when going from section to section. Voice command is impressive however. My heavily accented sales person still managed to get the temp set to 70 degrees. In comparison, my wife’s good old TSX’s handsfree system couldn’t recognize the word “dial” and she speaks perfect English.
    If you are looking for a luxury substitute, you won’t find it here. If you are looking for a middle-grade SUV with good tech features, it’s a good choice. Now, finding a dealer willing to sell for a nice discount might be challenging. My local dealer was marking it up $2k over MSRP. So a SEL FWD was going for $38k. I think not. Haahaa.
