The average pickup truck prices rise throughout the years alongside with the general decline of buyers’ demand. In recent years, however, a thaw has come to the truck market – more and more Americans consider to buy or lease a pickup truck for their household.

General Trend

Nowadays, the majority of automakers includes a lot of luxury features in their trucks meaning that the end consumer is expected to be more wealthy than earlier. And many wealthy consumers prefer leasing their vehicles instead of buying. That’s why there is a trend for leasing trucks. Of course, automakers understand it better than anyone else and thus, develop sufficiently loyal leasing programs. Let’s look at some examples.

GM has leasing programs for all GMC vehicles including pickup trucks. For instance, the company offers an ultra-low mileage lease of the 2016 GMC Canyon Crew Cab 2WD for well-qualified lessees who are willing to pay $249 per month for 36 months ($3,089 due at lease signing), as well as an ultra-low mileage lease of the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 Double Cab 4WD for those who are willing to pay $393 per month for 39 months ($393 due at lease signing). The exact figures may differ for every lessee, though.

Ram trucks are also available for lease. The 2016 Ram 3500 Tradesman Regular Cab 4X2 8′ Box, for instance, may cost you around $346 per month for 48 months ($3,348 due at lease signing).

If you’re looking for Ford, Toyota, Nissan, or Honda trucks, their lease programs are pretty much comparable with those of GM and FCA. Please note that the exact figures depend on many factors including your credit score, desired mileage, lease period, and downpayment, as well as some other things that may influence the risks of the lease provider.
