Congrats! I'm stuck in the position of there being only like 6 '18s left that have the options I want in the country (bench + tech pkg). I'm thinking if the shipping costs are ~$1K, I probably would be better off just ordering. On top of that, I only think it makes sense if the dealer can honor my X Plan.
But I read that the lease ARPs are horrible on '19s right now (like, 4%+ kinda horrible). I've never done a dealer order before, do the lease terms apply as of the date of order placement or is it as of the date the vehicle is delivered. I assume it's the former, but just wanted to confirm.
Hi shiftconvention. It is always best to ask a Lincoln Dealer what the process is.
That being said, here is my educated guess: If leases are similar to purchases, the Dealer can lock in the current terms at the time you order. Then when your vehicle arrives, you get the better of the two, if they differ. So if the leasing terms are better when you ordered than when your vehicle actually arrives, you get the terms from when you ordered. And if the leasing terms are better when your vehicle arrives than when you ordered, you get the current leasing terms at arrival.
Good luck with you order.
