Buy or Lease a New Ford


Financing That Puts You Behind the Wheel

Ford Credit offers financing options with features and benefits designed to make driving home in a new Ford both affordable and convenient. To assist you, we've provided some important information to consider when thinking about your next vehicle purchase

Identify Your Ford Vehicle Choice

Once you have determined your vehicle wants and needs, look for the Ford vehicle that suits the style, functionality and performance you are looking for.

Make Your Choice with Ford Credit

The decision to finance or lease can depend on several factors, including how often you prefer to get a new vehicle and your driving habits. Determine which best fits you and your lifestyle.

Lease a Vehicle - Retain your option to return or buy

Lease payments are usually lower than similar-term finance payments because you're only paying for the portion of the vehicle's value used during the lease term (and any associated lease charges).
Red Carpet Lease provides unique benefits and features:

  • Variety of popular terms, including our popular 24/36 month leases
  • Seven mileage options to choose from
  • Customize your vehicle at time of purchase with approved accessories

At the end of your Red Carpet Lease, you also have your choice of three different options:

  • Buy or Lease a new Ford
  • Purchase your Lease Vehicle at a predetermined price
  • Return your Lease Vehicle (after satisfying any lease-end obligations, such as mileage and wear and use charges)

Finance a Vehicle - Make it yours

Vehicle financing can be the ultimate reward whether you're considering a new or Certified Pre-Owned Ford vehicle.
Financing also has unique benefits and features:

  • Variety of popular terms
  • No mileage limits or excess wear and use charges
  • Customize your vehicle at any time
  • Each payment helps build vehicle equity toward future trade-in

Purchase Your Lease Vehicle


With the Red Carpet Lease, you have the option to purchase your lease vehicle at lease-end. When you purchase your vehicle you are not responsible for Excess Wear and Use or excess mileage charges.

Contact your Originating Dealer*

Talk with your Ford Dealer about:

  • Your vehicle purchase options.
  • The final purchase price, including taxes and other charges
  • Your appointment to purchase your lease vehicle on or before your scheduled lease-end date

Purchase your Lease Vehicle

Purchase your vehicle from your originating dealer* at lease-end. To fulfill your lease obligations, you'll need to:

  • Satisfy any remaining financial obligations
  • Facilitate lease-end requirements, such as reviewing and signing the Odometer Statement (required by federal law)
  • Complete your vehicle purchase transaction

Please note: Failure to complete lease-end transactions by your lease-end date could result in additional charges as described in your Red Carpet Lease Agreement.

*If you have moved and it is no longer convenient to return to your originating dealer (the dealership which originated your lease), you may return or purchase your lease vehicle through any participating Ford Dealer.

Return Your Lease Vehicle


With Red Carpet Lease, you have the option of returning your vehicle at lease-end. Follow these simple steps  and complete our Vehicle Return Checklist to help ensure a smooth and convenient vehicle return.

Excess Wear and Use Assessment

Before you return your vehicle, its overall condition will be evaluated to determine if there is any Excess (or chargeable) Wear and Use.

Your Lease Vehicle Inspection identifies Excess Wear and Use prior to the end of your lease. Identifying wear and use before your vehicle return gives you time to process claims for damage covered under your insurance policy or make any other needed repairs.

Contact Your Originating Dealer*

Talk with your Ford Dealer about:

  • Your vehicle return option
  • Questions about Excess Wear and Use of Excess Mileage
  • Your appointment to return your lease vehicle on or before your scheduled lease-end date
    • Prepare Your Vehicle for Return

      Here are some tips to help make your return easy and convenient:
      Remove any personal items from the vehicle. Check areas including:

      • Seat backs, sun visors and under seats
      • Compartments (e.g. center console, glove box, eyeglasses holder, spare tire)
      • Media and devices (e.g. CD, DVD, USB, MP3)

      Gather items that came with your vehicle including:

      • All keys and key fobs
      • DVD headphones and remote
      • Navigation media (e.g. DVD, memory card)
      • Cargo covers and luggage crossbars
      • Floor mats
      • Owner manuals
      • Wheel rims on the vehicle at lease origination
      • Items unique to hybrid/electric vehicles (e.g. charge cords)
      • Any other items that came with the vehicle

      Return Your Lease Vehicle

      When you return your vehicle to your originating dealer,* remember to bring any repair receipts along with all keys and key fobs. To fulfill your lease obligations, please remember to:

      • Satisfy any remaining financial obligations
      • Facilitate lease-end requirements including reviewing and signing the Odometer Statement (required by federal law)
      • Complete your vehicle return transaction

      Please note: Failure to complete lease-end transactions by your lease-end date could result in additional charges as described in your Red Carpet Lease Agreement.
