With GAP protection, you’re responsible for only the insurance deductible and any outstanding charges (e.g., past-due payments) at the time of the incident. Certain restrictions may apply.

Eligible Vehicles

Ineligible Vehicles

  • Upfit vehicles
  • High kilometrage and heavy-use vehicles

Lease-End options

At the end of your Red Carpet Lease, you have your choice of three different options after satisfying your lease-end obligations:

  • Buy or lease a new Ford
  • Purchase your leased vehicle at a predetermined price
  • Return your leased vehicle
