A post shared by Dodge (@dodgeofficial) on

When shopping for a Chrysler van, Dodge coupe, Jeep SUV or Ram truck, it may become difficult to decipher the differences between loaning vs. leasing, and buying vs. leasing. For drivers across Painesville and Mentor, leasing can provide an exceptional degree of freedom alongside offering a variety of conveniences. However, some drivers may find leases constricting, so determining whether or not your next vehicle should be loaned or leased is a crucial factor when shopping for your next car, truck or SUV.

Lease Vs. Loan - What's The Difference?

Loans offer drivers the ability to pay for their next vehicle over a pre-determined period of monthly payments. Following the completion of this period, drivers will completely own their vehicle, and are free to use it however they seek fit - off-roading, long road trips, etc.

Leases allow drivers to obtain new models at a significantly lesser price by paying monthly payments over a pre-determined lease period. At the end of this period, however, drivers either have the ability to turn in their current vehicle for a new one, or to continue leasing their current model (with some leases allowing drivers to pay the remaining value of the vehicle to own it). However, leases mandate that drivers maintain their vehicles to a certain standard, while lease terms commonly restrict annual mileage on the vehicle. For daily commuters, leasing may prove ideal as their annual mileages aren't subject to change, and vehicle wear is minimal. Additionally, leasing provides drivers with a variety of dealership-backed amenities, removing the stress from vehicle ownership.

When to Lease, When to Loan

However, for daily commuters or local drivers throughout Chardon and Willoughby who anticipate their annual mileage and seek the latest in automotive design, leasing will likely prove the better option.
