[Chrysler Canada] Ram 1500 Laramie lease $99/week $2500 down employee pricing only

Was looking for a lease I Calgary and some how came across this:

6.50% apr so I don’t think this is a vehicle you would want to keep past the 2 year lease but pretty reasonable pricing for a high end truck.

MADE TO ORDER! Lease Starting from $99/wk+tx with $2500 Down for 24 months @ 6.49% OAC, Includes 18,000 kms/yr **FCA Employee Pricing**

With money down, weekly payment is approx $125

With chip shortages I assume delivery time is really long?

Is that employee pricing we all can get or only FCA employees only?

6.49% is simply hilarious.

Amazing to me because in my local "dealer strip" the Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Ford and Mitsubishi lots are EMPTY...

...while the Nissan and Chrysler/Ram/Dodge lots have literally full lots.

Are their reps THAT bad that in the most insane seller's market they still can't clean their lots out?

F in the chat for Nissan and Chrysler/Ram/Dodge
tbh I'd rather transit than to drive endless money pits, as per Scotty Kilmer.

Rams sell really well and the ride quality is amazing. Sales are significantly higher compared to Rav4s, Civics, Accords and these are twice the price. Lol

Engine is better than Honda's 1.5L by a longshot.

And besides, who cares about reliability when it's a lease. You drive a $70K truck it for 2 years and your done with it. That's why so many people lease Euro cars.

On another note, how does this compare to the infamous Ford Lariat lease?

It's a two year lease. During that time you are covered under the manufacturer warranty. The endless money pit concern is a non-factor, unless you are leasing for the purpose of buying it (which makes no sense financially).

I got in on the infamous F150 lease. This has a better engine (for towing, but worse for fuel consumption). If I had the choice, I would have gone with the RAM, since we now tow a lot more often than we originally thought...

Owned a new Jeep myself and found out the hard way that FCA vehicles are unreliable af. Got rid of it after 5 years. I was left stranded when my start-stop battery unexpectedly died after 4 years brand new and the vehicle won't start. FCA (Stellantis) business model is to endlessly finance and lease their vehicles. Customers are expected to roll over the financing or get out of the lease into a new one anyways. So there's no point in making the vehicles durable and long lasting. There's always a new one waiting to be financed or leased. :rolleyes:

If you're looking to really own a vehicle (free and clear) long term, stay away from FCA. Either way, the system is designed so that FCA wins in the end by endlessly fixing the shoddy built vehicles or keep you on the upgrading treadmill.

Having said that, FCA vehicle interiors are very nicely designed and built. I really enjoyed the interior.

Buyer beware. If you're just looking to lease a work truck (or just lease a truck), this deal may make sense.
Why settle for full retail price when you can wait and get it at a lower price for better value (even better if there's a bundled freebies deal)? 😉

That “in stock sport deal” for 10 bucks more seems decent.

I’ve always wanted a truck for a short term to get it out of my system but never jumped on all those crazy deals in Ontario from a few years back.

Sadly, nowhere near as good as the $139/mo 0% 24m lease on the Ram 1500 SLT back in late 2016 but nonetheless an otherwise great price for a high trim package. The only think hurting it is the interest. Ouch!
Had no issues with our Ram throughout our lease. It went in once for a warranty recall at the very end of the term.

If the interest on this was lower and I didn't already have my fleet leased truck sitting in my driveway I'd definitely consider this.

It's also not 400$ if you factor the required 2500$ down, freight/PDI and taxes. So the actual cost is closer to 640$/month...

In case anyone is interested, East Court Ford Lincoln is advertising an XLT Crew Cab for 105$/week over 36 months with 0 down (1.9 APR). Not as sweet as the original Lariat 99$ deal but seems like a decent deal. They have the Lariat for 130$/week.

Is this limited to that specific dealer in Ontario, or is this a nationwide offer? I can't seem to find any info on it anywhere besides this one dealer's website...

I could afford the lease, but would need a loan for the fill-ups...

Chill down people, the deal is about a two year lease. All your reliability concerns are out of question here.
