Use Our Credit Estimator Tools

A big part of how we do financing is through transparency. With our credit estimator and budget planning tools, you will get a clear picture as to what your monthly expenses will look like, allowing you to plan your financial life right down to the dollar. You can also get an appraisal on your current ride, so you can factor in what kind of down payment you can make.

Benefits of Owning or Leasing a Ford Vehicle in the Chicago Area

Ford vehicles are world-renowned for their incredible durability and performance. This makes them ideally suited for the cold weather climates you'll find the in the greater Chicago area. With robust engines underneath the hood and available all-wheel drive on many of the models, we're confident that a Ford vehicle is the perfect fit for your daily life.

Is Buying or Leasing Right for You?

One of the first questions that every driver faces is whether buying or leasing is the right way to go. At Fox Ford Chicago, both options are available to you. We're happy to help set you up with a long-term financing option on a new, used, or certified pre-owned Ford that works you towards full vehicle ownership. Otherwise, if you prefer to always stay on top of what's new, feel free to check out our leasing options on new Ford vehicles near Melrose Park.


If you're the type that easily gets attached and see your vehicle as an asset, we recommend long-term financing. You'll have complete ownership over your vehicle with no restrictions on things such as mileage or customization. Plus, once you've paid off the vehicle, having a working vehicle that doesn't have any monthly costs associated with it is a huge boon to your financial situation.

  • No restrictions on mileage driven
  • No restrictions on vehicle modifications
  • Lower vehicle insurance rates
  • The ability to build equity in the vehicle over time
  • Once the vehicle is paid off, you'll have no monthly payments thereby freeing your budget
  • Once the vehicle is paid off, you can sell it off or trade it in towards the purchase or lease of another vehicle


However, if you prefer to experience all the latest innovations, technology, and upgrades that come year after year, you'll want a short-term lease. Lessees always have access to the newest vehicles, and typically have lower monthly payments than those who finance. Newer vehicles also come with next to no maintenance costs, so being a lessee is a very stress-free situation. And, of course, if you find that you've fallen in love with your leased vehicles, you have the option to buy at the conclusion of your lease.

  • Better tax deductions for Chicago residents who own a business
  • Lower monthly payments that allow for greater financial freedom
  • Minimal maintenance costs thanks to the warranty coverage
  • Smaller down payments are required when the lease is signed
  • You'll always be driving a new vehicle with the latest features
