Basically, I'm currently waiting for Jeep to update their website to MY15 in order for me to get some idea about the lease-quotes. I'm not sure if these numbers will be out 'til Saturday so I guess we will negotiate the numbers once my "baby" reaches the dealership.

Since there is so much involved in this deal (basically, three factors: trade, new vehicle and lease), I'll probably focus on the monthly payment. If that's a number that's close to what I calculated, I'll be happy. I'm not that type of guy that will be frustrated for the rest of his life if I pay $20/month more than somebody else who got the deal of his life.

In the end, only the monthly payment matters on a lease. How we get there...I really don't mind. So yeah, If the lease is good and I get a good offer on my trade, I could also live with 1 or 2% below invoice.
Sorry, not trying to "over" help but as u probably know amt of upfront $ matters hugely....IMHO, zero money (except trades, first and or last pymnt) should b put up front...often u can't avoid security, lease inception/disposition fees based upon lease vendor and if u r a returning lessee or new to them...my main point is the Jeep/other deals that call for x thousands up front.....IMHO, those dollars should be eliminated and the lease payment quoted accordingly as it is virtually a free roll-in...i.e., if they call for $2,499 upfront which is a cap cost reduction of, say, $1800 and first payment of $699 then have them (and others) roll in the $1800 and your monthly lease pymnt will go up $50 ish...counting time value of money, etc it is no-brainer (for me) to do that...some people would just rather put a chunk of cash down to lower the pymnt, that is purely a personal decision but not a great one, fiscally speaking...

Re: Well, it's getting serious now...

I never put a lot of money down on a lease. I think the maximum out of pocket I ever spent was $1K - and that was my deposit on a rather expensive BMW. This time, I don't want to put anything down.

I'm planning on leasing through Chrysler. I don't know if their policies changed but on our last lease with them a couple of years ago, we didn't have to put any money down, either.

In fact, we actually agreed upon a higher purchase price and got a $5K check in the mail. Well, those were the days...

Re: Well, it's getting serious now...

Well, since I registered with TrueCar, I received an e-mail today about a new incentive (which would actually apply to me as well):

$1,000

2015 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep Conquest Lease to Retail/Lease Bonus Cash


Applies to standard or special lease or retail programs. Only available to consumers currently leasing a competitive vehicle. No turn-in required. Not compatible with Employee purchase.
This incentive may not be combined with the following incentives: 2015 Chrysler 200 Sedan (excluding LX) South Carolina Lease Bonus Cash, 2015 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep Loyalty Bonus Cash, 2015 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram Returning Lessee Loyalty Bonus Cash, 2015 Dodge Dart Returning Lessee Loyalty Bonus Cash
See dealer for details. (Expires 3/31/2015)


BTW, there is a similar incentive for returning/current lessees.

Is this legit? I'm asking because I didn't expect ANY incentives on a MY15 that early in the game...

Re: Well, it's getting serious now...

MY15 is just a continuation of MY14 for all practical purposes...I'm not surprised they would have this type of offer already available, especially since it's aimed at turning competitive vehicle lessees over to Jeep lessees.

That makes sense. Edmunds has the same "program" listed on the MY15s so it seems accurate. The funny thing is that this particular incentive does not apply to the MY14s.

But hey, I'm not complaining. A $1,000 incentive is a nice add-on and is going to save me about $30/month on my future lease-payment.

Ya they come and go. I got to use this (Lease Conquest $) on my purchase using Houston Group Buy in Nov '13. Like Jim_pa said, it's a marketing mix decision by corp...

I'm still desperately waiting for jeep.com to finally update their website to MY15. Though it's nice to already have all the pricing- and incentive-info, I'd really need to see the new leasing-numbers to get the entire picture.

Re: Well, it's getting serious now...

If you build a MY14 on the site similar to what you plan on acquiring as a MY15, the lease number should be close for budgetary reasons.
