Nope, more than 57k...
The calculators aren't accurate because they need to be adjusted. And without the correct MSRP and option-prices, the entire calculator is useless.
Although we know the actual MSRP and option-prices, the calculator can't be used because an artificial price-inflation (let's say the real prices are $5K more and you would "adjust" that increase by "reducing" your virtual downpayment on the calculator) would not work due to the residual value. Virtually every number would be off.
When it comes to the FINANCING calculator, however, you can use these tricks to calculate your actual payment based on the real price because the residual doesn't matter. In that case, however, you could also use bankrate.com..
You also need to know at what price you can get a car for (invoice?) because lease-calculators are always based on MSRP - and we all know that that's not the price you should pay for a Jeep. So calculationg with an actual downpayment of $0 wouldn't be too accurate. You are basically making a downpayment as soon as you buy the car below MSRP - at least when you are dealing with these calculators.
