The last few days have been exciting times for 2021 Ford Bronco orders. This week, the order banks finally opened for the reimagined SUV, and owners can finally get one major step closer to delivery. Now, Ford has updated the Bronco build and price configurator with lease pricing. Leasing the new Bronco is appealing for some people, and now they know how much it costs.
A bare-bones, Base trim Ford Bronco two-door serves as the cheapest lease payment, at $312 for a typical 36 month lease with a $3,000 down payment. A typical 48 month finance deal with $3,000 down on the same vehicle costs $622. Step up to a mid-level four-door Black Diamond Bronco with the Sasquatch and Mid Packages, and a 36 month lease would cost $516 a month after a $4,842 down payment. A $60,000 fully equipped four-door Ford Bronco Badlands with the Sasquatch and Lux Packs, and the 2.7 liter V6, would lease at $679 per month after a $5,995 down payment. All lease payments are for 10,500 miles a year, which can be described as low miles.
As per usual, leasing is the less expensive monthly option, but the decision really comes down to which option fits your lifestyle and long term plans.
Future Ford Bronco owners seem to be split on if leasing their SUV is the best choice or not. The Bronco 6G Forum discovered leasing was now included, and some users say it’s silly to lease a vehicle designed for off-roading. Dings, scratches and general wear and tear is something Bronco owners should expect if they use it like it’s intended, and that could make turning in a lease problematic. Ford is also setting the Bronco up to be easy to customize, but leasing the vehicle could limit some people’s aftermarket options. Finally, some thing it’s crazy they’d want to get rid of their Bronco in a specific timeframe.
But some other forum users firmly believe leasing the Ford Bronco is the way to go. Some people would rather lease an early production model in case there are some first year bugs. They want to make sure they like the vehicle and it’s reliable before making a permanent purchase. Others are waiting on new model variants and are getting the 2021 Bronco as a stopgap. This isn’t a bad idea, as we know a Bronco Warthog, Raptor, Heritage Edition, and pickup are probably inbound for the years ahead. We also know the color palette will change over the years, with new shades already expected in 2022.
Whether customers lease or buy their new 2021 Ford Bronco, this shows they are one step closer to getting their hands on the most anticipated vehicle of the year.
