You always maintain control when financed through Benchmark.

In-House Lease Plans (through us, no credit check required):

We have two options for our in-house lease financing plans:

1) The Standard Plan

The Standard Plan option is listed in white next to vehicles on our website. There is a purchase option with the Standard Plan so you can own the vehicle at the end if you like.

2) The 2.5 Year Plan

The 2.5 Year Plan option is listed in green next to vehicles on our website. There is not a purchase option with the 2.5 Year Plan, so you cannot own the vehicle at the end; however, the 2.5 Year Plan does include really attractive trade incentives to help you get into another vehicle for a significantly reduced amount at the end of the lease.

*Please check out the 'Trade Options' link at the top of our website for more information. All vehicles include our powertrain warranty with both plans. Please see dealer for complete details.


Standard Lease Plan:
You have a purchase option

The standard lease plan is our most popular because you have the option to purchase the vehicle at the end of the lease. All our vehicles are mechanically sound, fully serviced, safe and reliable. We include a warranty on every vehicle offered, we include a GAP waiver for the life of the lease, we include oil changes, we pay the property taxes on the vehicle for the life of the lease, and we never lock you into any strict, long-term contract. If the vehicle isn't meeting your needs or you just feel like driving something new, you can trade into a different vehicle or simply walk away by paying a small $100 early termination fee after just thirteen months. You always maintain control when financed with us. Because you can terminate the lease and simply walk away after just thirteen months, you will also never have negative equity when financing with us. Simply stated, our standard lease plan is the most customer friendly in-house program in the industry. Please see dealer for complete details.

2.5 Year Lease Plan:
You do not have a purchase option

The 2.5 year lease plan gives our customers an easier way to drive vehicles for lower down payments than we can offer with our standard plan. The 2.5 year lease plan is new; it is different; it is cutting edge, and it is really customer friendly! The 2.5 year lease plan gives customers the ability to get into a new vehicle every two and a half years for less than it would cost to maintain your old vehicle or to simply walk away. No negative equity, no strings attached, no hassles. It's as simple as that, and that's pretty awesome if you ask us!

The 2.5 year lease plan also has lower down payments than we can offer with our standard lease plan. Down payments on the 2.5 year lease plans typically run $500 - $1,000 less than our standard lease plans and the payments are typically cheaper as well. All of this adds up to an extremely easy way for our customers to continually drive a fully serviced, safe and reliable vehicle for the foreseeable future.

If you like driving a fully serviced, safe and reliable vehicle, this lease plan is for you. If you like driving a new vehicle every 2.5 years, this lease plan is for you. If you don’t like being locked into long-term commitments on vehicles, this plan is for you. And, if you just want to preserve your options over the long run, this plan is for you. We are very excited about the 2.5 year lease plan and its benefits for our customers. We hope you are too! Please see dealer for complete details.


Wait, you mean I don't ever own the vehicle on the 2.5 year plan?!?!

We get it! This concept at the beginning is different for most customers, and we do want you to go into it with your eyes wide open. In fact, we get that almost every customer shopping for a new car goes into it with the mindset that s/he is going to keep that vehicle forever... going to drive it until the wheels fall off because they love it so much!!! However, the reality is that after six months 90% of those same customers want trade into something new, especially if it doesn't cost much money to do so. The 2.5 year lease plan is for that 90%; but it is not for everyone, and we want to be clear that it may not be the right option for you. Some customers actually do want to get a new vehicle and keep it forever. If that is you, this is not a plan for you, and you should instead look into our standard lease plan where you have the option to purchase the vehicle at the end of the lease. You do not have the option to purchase the vehicle at the end of our discounted 2.5 year lease plan (again, you do have the option to purchase the vehicle at the end of our standard lease plan so that works for you if that is what you prefer). The 2.5 year lease plan is only for customers who want to put less money down on higher end vehicles and trade them in more often than you are able to with traditional buy-here, pay-here financing options.

Additionally, if you put over 18,000 miles per year on a vehicle (1,500 miles per month), this plan is not for you. If you do not take care of your vehicle, this plan is not for you. And, if you do not make payments on time, this plan is not for you. There are a ton of benefits to the 2.5 year lease plan, but it is not right for everyone. Please be sure it works with your lifestyle and expectations before signing up for it.
