Manufacturers such as BMW, Ford and Lincoln utilized lease pull ahead programs in 2013, and several other manufacturers, such as GM, may be planning aggressive lease pull ahead programs for 2014. These programs are beneficial to the industry as they help turn new inventory and elevate brand retention among consumers. believes there will be roughly 20% more lease pull ahead program options in 2014, particularly as a result of an expected three million leases scheduled for return in the coming year.
