This year I'm planning on leasing a widebody Charger Hellcat. I don't think a Redeye is an option because I'm not seeing any deals. I have some 'play money' to throw at a fun toy to drive (around $15K). I know it's frowned upon putting a lot money down on lease (risk of losing it all if the car is totaled or stolen, I get it LOL). However, I would be able to enjoy a powerful Mopar with a comfortable low payment. 馃槑 No performance mods (besides a CAI) and 315 tires all around, the car will be stock and a daily driven.

With how the market is and all these computer chip shortages I need to decided if I should just order new and wait for all the delays for it, or just find one locally (that may not be in the color or options I want) and work with it. Maybe it's best to wait till the end of the year? We still haven't received details what the 2022 models will be 馃. My guess is variants of the current body style with minor changes (like RT's getting widebodies, or 392's getting Hellcat hoods, etc.) In any case, I'm in no rush. Just trying to decide when the best time to strike. 馃槈

TBH, I'd just buy one. With the market the way it is, you'll likely be able to flip it in 2-3 years for much less than what the lease would cost you. Especially if you put a lot down on it. I have not, and never will pay 1 penny in down payments on a leased vehicle. I can flush money down the toilet in the comfort of my own home if I'm ever inclined.

Prices are crazy and inventory low right now. Hard to get a good deal from what I鈥檝e heard. If you do pull the trigger, at no money down you can already make quite a few months of payments with that $15K you have stashed away for it. Prob. even just use part of it plus a minimal out of pocket payment each month and be in a same, or better, monthly payment position.

Doubt it. @bay_area is the lease guy, but even at the going rate with doo doo lease incentives, low inventory and $15k down you're probably still close to $500 a month I bet. Ultimately a normal Charger WB is still $72k+ car. A "standard" lease with a couple grand down to cover fees and first month is easily $800s.

I was quoted $765 a month for 36mo/10k with fist month down on a Hellcat that stickers for 80k in Feb. Lease rates have pretty much stayed the same on regular Hellcats since then. If you think that's expensive don't even look at a Redeye, lol.

The issue is you can't find a 2021 that's not a redeye. So we aren't talking 765/mo anymore we are talking 1065/mo on a well equipped charger hc redeye.

Ally residual/mf for a 2021 redeye is 63% and .31% mf..... the issue is you can't get these cars much lower than 3-4k off sticker, so you are looking at a payment in the 1000s regardless, and 3-4k is a very very good deal in the lease market rn. That doesn't mean a lease is the way to go, and honestly unless you are looking for a business writeoff I wouldn't entertain a lease.

The biggest issue right now is the 11k increase due to redeye only and the market shortage isn't helping anybody either.

Don't put any money down on a lease, cardinal sin of leasing. God forbid one of these thieves steals your car, say bye bye to your $15k play money, I can name one of many scenarios that will cause you to lose any money you put down on a lease, total, flood, hail, etc etc.

1st month + standard driveoffs.

That鈥檚 besides the point I have one on order
At the moment fca has published .00013 mf and 63% residual for 36/10 (subtract 1 for 12k and an additional 2 for 15k)

The rest depends on your build, sales price, taxes, doc fee, etc etc.

leasehackr.com/calculator?make=Dodge&miles=10000&msd=0&msrp=30000&sales_price=28000&months=36&mf=.00013&dp=0&dealer_fee=85&acq_fee=595&taxed_inc=0&untaxed_inc=0&rebate=0&resP=63&reg_fee=400&sales_tax=9&demo_mileage=0&memo=&monthlyTax_radio=true&bmw_demo_25=true

Here's the calculator with pre filled values.


Here's where you can find mf and residual, just make an account and ask. You need to provide term, zip code and trim, then ask for mf,residual, and incentives. Just follow the template of the other posters.

Keep in mind numbers may change every month.

Like some have mentioned, it may be best to keep as much dough in my pockets, and use that for my car payment for a year and half plus 馃槒 a lot to consider. I still want to know about the 2022 models whatever they may be. The inventory is low though which is discouraging. I wouldn't mind ordering new and waiting a few months either if the price is better. 馃

Right, there's no regular 2021 HC on dealer lots. When I ordered mine in Feb I asked for a ballpark figure with the rates that month, that's how I got that quote. The RE was out of my budget and I didn't want a zero option car just to say I have a RE. The Ally lease rate is pretty good....way better than CCAP last time I checked.
