Opting to lease a Toyota model is a popular choice compared to purchasing, primarily due to its adaptability, reduced monthly payments, and the option to drive the latest Toyota vehicles upon release. If you’re unfamiliar with leasing, certain terms may seem perplexing.

At MotorWorld Toyota, our financial specialists are more than willing to clarify some of the most prevalent Toyota lease definitions.  

Elucidating Lease Terminology 

If you’re considering leasing a new Toyota Camry, Toyota RAV4, or any other Toyota model, it’s essential to comprehend the following lease definitions.  

  • Duration: The lease duration is the length of time you will be leasing the vehicle. Most leases span 24, 36, 48, or 60 months. The longer the lease duration, the lower your monthly payments will generally be.  
  • Money factor: Comparable to an interest rate, the lease’s money factor is calculated differently. It is expressed as a number like 0025. To convert it to a more recognizable interest rate, multiply this figure by 2,400.  
  • Residual value: This denotes the worth of your car at the conclusion of a lease. The residual value is predetermined before signing the lease agreement.  
  • Depreciation: As your vehicle gradually depreciates over time, its value diminishes. The amount you pay for this depreciation is known as the vehicle’s depreciation cost.  
  • Capitalized cost: Also referred to as the cap cost, this figure comprises the negotiated sale price of the car along with any added fees that could be integrated into the monthly lease installment.
