As with every holiday, Ford saves its best leases until the last minute. As of yesterday, the brand is now advertising a $199 per month, $199 down lease on the 2019 Fusion. Based on our analysis, this is the single cheapest lease deal for the Labor Day weekend. However, there are some catches worth knowing about.

First, this is a regional deal in Los Angeles with 10,500 miles/year for the SE with 1.5-liter turbo and Equipment Group 151A. The car has an MSRP of over $25,000. To get to this price, Ford is including a $2,000 trade-in assistance bonus and, perhaps more importantly, a $1,520 loyalty discount for current Ford lessees.

Like most Ford incentives, the offer also includes a $250 bonus you can only get when choosing a car that's been in stock for over 61 days. Those are a lot of catches that could easily disqualify you from getting the best price. However, those eligible will be able to get one of the cheapest leases we've seen all year.

With an effective cost of $205/month, this makes the Fusion $100 (per month!) cheaper to lease than a Toyota Camry LE. In Los Angeles, the Camry is listed at $249 for 36 months with $1,999 at signing, an effective cost of $305/month. Both cars come with advanced features like automatic emergency braking.

Offers end September 3.
