When it comes time to buy a new or used Ford truck, you don’t want to be caught off guard by unexpected expenses. Our team at Hiller Ford provides financial tools to help you craft a budget and find a vehicle that fits that budget. You can start budgeting for a new Ford vehicle right at home, and then stop into your local Ford dealer near Milwaukee, WI for financial assistance.
Online Tools for Budgeting
Value Your Trade: For starters, ask yourself what you can afford for a down payment. A down payment lowers the amount you will need to borrow, and the larger it is, the more money you’ll save over time. We recommend putting at least 20% of the vehicle’s value down. If you need a little help meeting that mark, consider trading in your vehicle and putting its value toward a down payment. You can use our convenient online tool to get an estimate of your vehicle’s trade-in value.
Payment Calculator: Next, check out what your monthly payment will be on a few of your favorite models. Use our online payment calculator to figure out what a new or used Ford truck will cost. You can adjust the amount of the down payment and trade-in, along with your loan terms, and see how that will figure into the monthly cost.
Planning for a Car Loan
Factor in the cost of car ownership: Full coverage on a new vehicle will probably cost more than insurance on a used Ford truck. It’s always a good idea to get the cost of insurance before you purchase a vehicle. You also should factor the cost of sales tax, title and registration fees, and even monthly maintenance and gas fill-ups into your budget.
Apply for financing online: Hiller Ford offers an online financing application so you can see your options from the comfort of your home. By completing this app early in the process, you’ll have less paperwork at the dealership and will have a better sense of the price range you can afford when shopping for a new car. You may be surprised at how affordable our models can be!
