Re: Residuals & Money Factors
The Overland will be worth more, but not the same percentage more. Lets say you buy a $5,000 option package on a $30,000 car. Essentially 17% of the cost of the car.
3 years down the line, is that car worth 17% more than a car with the same option package? No. Might be worth $1,500 more. The package depreciated at a much higher rate than the base car.
If you look at used car values and play around with KBB, etc you see that.
Thats why when leasing the smart Jeep to lease is probably an absolutely loaded Limited vs a base Overland. Cost and equipment may be very close, but because the Limited is a Limited the residual is going to be better and the lease will be cheaper. Whereas if you are buying the Overland will probably actually be worth more on resale because "its an Overland".
