  • Flexible terms 
  • Unlimited miles

  • Build equity toward a trade-in
When purchasing, here are exclusive Lincoln Automotive Financial Services programs to consider: 

GAP Coverage

In the event of vehicle loss, this optional coverage steps in when insurance proceeds do not satisfy your contract balance. GAP Coverage Protects Your Vehicle Financially You've made an investment in your Lincoln and GAP Coverage was created to protect that investment. If your Lincoln is stolen and not recovered or if it's declared a total loss, your insurance company may not pay enough to satisfy what you still owe. 

GAP Coverage is designed to bridge that gap. With certain restrictions, it waives the difference between your current outstanding balance (subject to conditions) and the actual cash value of the vehicle at the time of loss.

For an added level of protection there's GAP Advantage, which provides a $1,000 down payment on a new or pre-owned vehicle purchased at the originating dealer.

GAP Coverage Options

Learning about both of the plans allows you choose accordingly

Flex Buy Program

Flex Buy Program Utilizes two payment levels so you can plan ahead. A lower payment level earlier in the contract, followed by a higher level.
If you have any questions, we're ready to help walk you through all your available options.

GAP Protection Benefit

Gap Protection may waive the difference - or gap - between your insurance payoff and your outstanding lease balance in the event your leased vehicle is stolen or declared a total loss. This unique benefit is built into your lease. With Gap Protection, provided you have the insurance required by your lease agreement, you are only responsible for the insurance deductible and amounts owing (ex. past due payments) at the time of the incident. Certain restrictions may apply.

Advance Payment Program (APP)

We offer our clients the opportunity to prepay all monthly lease payments up front in a single, one-time payment. This allows you to drive without giving monthly payments another thought. Keep in mind, lease-end obligations still apply.
