Ford Leasing

Financing That Puts You Behind the Wheel

Ford Credit offers a variety of competitive financing options with benefits and features designed to make driving home in a new Ford affordable and convenient.

To assist you in making your vehicle decision, here are some current specials going on now!


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


We want you to love your ford vehicle and be totally satisfied with your decision, no buyer’s remorse. At the end of your Red Carpet Lease, we offer a great lease deal with 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)


Red Carpet Lease provides the lessee listed on the Lease Agreement the option to purchase their leased vehicle. Contact Us to help you stay in your vehicle!

At Lease-End, South Bay Ford is ready to help make the experience easy and convenient for you. With Red Carpet Lease, you have the option of returning or purchasing your vehicle at lease-end. When you purchase your vehicle you are not responsible for Excess Wear and Use or excess mileage charges. Follow these simple steps to help ensure a smooth and convenient vehicle purchase. See how easy it is to own your Ford and go further. 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. To help you assess the condition of your vehicle and excess mileage at any time during your lease, please refer to 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.

Financing a New or Used Vehicle
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
