One of the big questions that we get asked time after time from GMC truck shoppers is does it make sense to lease or does it make sense to finance a brand new GMC truck. And the answer is, it depends! While both offer fantastic benefits it really comes down to your personal needs as to which is best for you. Allow us to explain.
Let’s say you need a full-sized pick up truck. Like the GMC Sierra. And let’s say that you’re going to be using the truck for work or business. In this case it may make better sense for you to finance your new truck. There are many reasons why you would want to finance a truck for work or business purposes. First one being that we find most people who acquire a brand new GMC Sierra for work or business purposes, they tend to hold onto them for much longer. This offers you the opportunity to pay it off over a much longer period of time, and typically interest rates are very good on financing GMC trucks over the long term of your ownership.
Another reason why you would want to consider financing a GMC truck for work or business is because let’s face it, it’s very, very likely that your truck is going to get dinged and dented from time to time. As much as you want to say it won’t, and as much as you will do everything you can to protect it, the reality is if you’re using a GMC truck for any kind of business or work, especially if it has anything to do with building and construction your truck is going to get banged up. There’s nothing wrong with this it’s just shows that your truck is your work horse.
These are two of the biggest reasons why it would make better sense for you to finance a GMC Sierra or even the GMC Canyon. Another top reason why to consider financing is if you drive a lot of miles each year. When you lease a vehicle you are allotted a specific number of miles to drive each year. Anytime you go over that mileage you must pay an up charge.
This is the perfect segue into discussing leasing your new GMC Sierra or GMC Canyon truck. As mentioned in the previous paragraph if you don’t drive many miles a year, leasing your brand new truck is a fantastic idea. For those who are only going to be driving their trucks in and around the Bristol area and maybe a road trip here and there, not putting much more than 12 to 15,000 miles on their truck or year leasing is perfect!
Another fantastic reason that you would want to lease your new GMC Truck is you are the type of person who likes to have the latest and greatest. You want the newest models, with all the latest technology. When you lease a vehicle you are only owning it for a very short amount of time, typically no more than three years. After three years you can trade it in for a brand new one. That means you could potential be getting a redesigned truck with all of the latest bells and whistle‘s that you weren’t able to get on your previous truck.
A few of the minor drawbacks of leasing are the fact that you do not own the vehicle. So while some of the maintenance and repairs will be covered for the three years that you own the vehicle certain wear and tear items (brakes, suspension) may not be covered while you’re driving the vehicle and it will be up to you to pay out-of-pocket to fix or replace those parts. During your lease term if your rims get scuffed up, it will be on you to replace them before returning the vehicle. Along those lines if the vehicle gets dented or if the paint gets scuffed up, once again it will be up to you to fix the vehicle before you return it back to the dealership. This is of course not the case if you finance.
What many people don’t always realize though, is that at the end of your lease term, you have the option to buy the vehicle out right from the dealership instead of returning it. This is a great option if you want to first test out a vehicle to see if you think you will like it long term and then pay it off once the lease term has concluded.
