Lease a Lincoln

Lease payments are usually lower than similar term finance payments. You also have the flexibility of three options at lease-end: Purchase the vehicle, return it, or get a new Lincoln.

There are a number of reasons to choose Red Carpet Lease:
  • Choice of terms, such as 24- and 36-month leases
  • Multiple mileage options
  • Lease payments tend to be lower than those of a similar term financed purchase
  • No trade-in to worry about
  • After satisfying your lease-end obligations, you can:
    • purchase or lease a new Lincoln,
    • purchase your lease vehicle, or
    • simply return the vehicle.

Purchase a Lincoln

Whether you decide on a New or Certified Pre-Owned Lincoln vehicle, you’ll experience the advantages of ownership:
  • Flexible terms
  • No mileage restrictions
  • Future trade-in equity

Trying to decide between a purchase and a lease? Answer a few questions and we can help you identify the better choice.

Lincoln Automotive Financial Services focuses on financial options as individual as our drivers. We also provide access to exclusive programs, incentives and offers on new Lincoln vehicles.

Vehicle Assessment

Prior to returning your Lincoln, you will be contacted to schedule a Lease Vehicle Inspection. The inspection will evaluate the overall condition to determine if there is Excess Wear and Use.

This allows you time to process claims for damage covered under your insurance policy before you return the Lincoln.

Keep in mind that your Lincoln Dealer can provide the repairs, parts, service and the expertise to ensure your vehicle is return-ready. Please retain copies of all repair receipts for verification when returning your vehicle.
