Best Bang for Your Buck Lease Deals

This week, I compiled advertised lease deals from manufacturer's web sites to find out which vehicles and locations offer the best "bang for your buck" (Note: electric vehicles are not included in this list due to federal rebates which prevent a fair comparison - see electric / hybrid lease deals here).

The 2021 Toyota Tacoma stands out as the best bang for your buck deal in the country - $252 per month with zero down on a vehicle with MSRP of $32,400. That's equivalent to getting a whopping $129 worth of MSRP for each dollar you pay per month.(Note: the best Tacoma lease deals are limited to the Detroit region) It's important to note that the best lease deals in general may only be available in certain regions (usually NY or California regions offer the best lease deals) - other regions may not come close to this figure.

Each lease deal below is calculated with zero down payment so you can compare apples to apples. Note that payments don't include tax, title, and other fees and the deals may only be available in that particular region.

Anything above 100 in the "Bang for your Buck" column indicates an excellent lease deal, and almost all of the deals below meet this threshold. Keep in mind, you may be able to negotiate even better deals - these are just the advertised terms, some brands such as Ford don't include any dealer discounts in the advertised lease deals, which means you could likely end up with lower monthly payments.

As always, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, CarsDirect and RydeShopper to quickly see the lowest lease prices you can get on any of these vehicles in your local area.
