Fireworks. Barbeques. Family get-togethers. The Fourth of July is one of the most festive days of the year, and by far one of the most fun days of the Summer. It also marks one of the best times of the year to grab a great deal on pretty much anything you could think of.
That remains true for automakers, who are trying to boost Summer sales and clear out remaining 2019 models to make room for the hotly anticipated 2020 vehicles that have arrived. Because of this, dealerships are offering some pretty sweet incentives in order to get more people behind the wheel of their preferred vehicles.
That means some pretty sweet Independence Day deals for you, the consumer. Thanks for having a birthday, America!
That being said, here are the hottest Fourth of July Lease Deals we could find on some of the most popular American makes and models we could find.
Check out the deals below and remember to contact the automotive experts at Capital Motor Cars for the best Fourth of July Lease Deals on other makes models as well!
1. 2019 Dodge Durango SXT Plus
As far as affordable third-row SUVs with attitude go, the 2019 Dodge Durango SXT Plus is always a mainstay on the top of our list. Featuring an aggressive front grille, muscular yet sleek styling and a standard powerful 3.6L Penastar V6 engine, the Durango makes for a capable family hauler, that doesn’t sacrifice performance for practicality on any level.
Staying true to its muscle roots, the Durango is one of the best looking SUVs on the market, and we fully recommend leveling up to the blacktop package that gives your black painted rims and accents.
The SXT Plus comes capably equipped with 18-inch carbon aluminum wheels, ParkView rearview camera system and comes integrated with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.
Just like the super popular Jeep Grand Cherokee (another one of our picks,) the Durango features the 7’’ Uconnect infotainment system, one of the easiest and intuitive systems on the market in any vehicle.
Inside the cabin, you’ll also find similar design elements from the Jeep Grand Cherokee as well as comparable build quality. Ride quality is on the stiff side but generally smooth.
Passenger and cargo room is spacious and the split-folding third row is spacious enough for adults, but is best suited for children or teenagers.
Where the Durango does come up a bit short is on gas mileage, averaging an EPA estimated 19/26 city and highway. This is expected, due to the performance attributes of the V6 engine and the heavy muscle-nature of the Durango’s exterior.
However, chances are if you’re getting a Durango, fuel economy is not at the top of your list when it comes to must-have traits.
Options can get pricey as well if you’re looking to go up in trim, but for most folks, the SXT Plus model will come with enough bells and whistles to satisfy the average buyer that doesn’t want to settle for a ho-hum SUV.
Overall, if you need a third-row vehicle that packs a punch, the 2019 Dodge Durango SXT Plus should be on your short-list of potential seven-passenger vehicles, because it’s definitely on ours.

Year-after-year, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is at the top of the list when it comes to the best-selling SUVs in North America – and it’s easy to see why. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is easily one of the most recognizable SUVs on the road and comes with a long track record of superb reliability and exciting off-roading features. It’s just about as American as baseball and Apple Pie.
With rugged good looks that would make Chris Pratt proud, a standard V6 engine that pumps out a robust 300 hp and comfortable seating for five, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is in many ways the gold standard of American SUVs.
Not to mention that the Grand Cherokee is a blast to drive off-road, with it’s all-wheel-drive powertrain and different drive modes that adapt to snow, dirt, sand and more. Every Jeep is trail rated and are 4×4 ready to go out of the box, making it capable of tackling any terrain for those seeking adventure.
On the inside, the Grand Cherokee is far more than an off-road beast. You’ll find the easy-to-use Uconnect infotainment system, premium build materials, and leather if you feel the need to scale up.

3. 2019 Chevy Equinox LS
After a complete redesign for the 2018 model, the 2019 Chevy Equinox is largely unchanged this time around, save for a few new perks and upgrades. Just like last year, the Equinox remains a good-looking, solid-handling crossover offering from another trusted American automaker, Chevy.
The Equinox LS comes standard with a smooth 170hp 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, providing amble power whether on the highway or around town. With either choice, it’s got plenty of power under the hood and a surprising bite to its suspension that comes in handy when cornering around hilly roads.
This combination gives it strong passing torque on the highway and an impressive 39mpg highway fuel economy, the best for any non-hybrid in its class. It should be able to tow up to 3,500lbs.
For all this, it’s road noise is surprisingly quiet on the inside, making for an enjoyable ride.
Finally, it really is an attractive vehicle thanks to a much-needed facelift in 2018. The interior is tastefully designed with a soft finish. The exterior is bold and classy with sharp, clean lines and spot-on proportions.
A major bragging point for Chevy, the 2019 Equinox earned top safety ratings from the NHTSA, with an overall 5/5 stars, with some of the best scores in its class.
Parents will also appreciate Chevrolet’s Teen Driver feature, allowing them to monitor their kids’ driving habits.
The 2019 Equinox comes loaded with features including remote keyless entry, Bluetooth and voice control, an optional seven-speaker Bose sound system and a 4G WiFi hotspot.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard on a 7.0” touchscreen, which can be upgraded to an 8” that also adds SiriusXM satellite radio and a navigation system.
It also comes with OnStar Emergency Services, a system that helps you out in case of an accident, severe weather, or if you run out of gas – a nice touch for basically anyone, but especially useful for those new drivers out there.
The 2019 Chevy Equinox LT comes in as one of the lower priced SUVs on our list, but still comes well-equipped for those looking for a compact SUV that provides great value from a trusted American brand in Chevy.

4. 2019 Cadillac XT5
The standard of classic American luxury vehicles, Cadillac’s relatively new crossover option, the XT5, more than carries on that tradition. Introduced in 2016 as a replacement to the Cadillac SRX crossover, the XT5 is a smooth driving, comfort-oriented crossover with solid space designed with driver and passenger comfort in mind.
The XT5 comes standard with a 3.6.-liter V-6 engine that outputs 310 horsepower, a nice touch for those looking for a little bit more than just a pleasant luxury experience.
The front-wheel-drive models are pretty efficient, with 19 mpg in the city, 26 on the highway, and 22 combined.
The XT5 also comes well-equipped with standard features such as premium Bose surround sound, power liftgate, synthetic leather upholstery, remote keyless entry and remote start just to name a few.
Unlike the Grand Cherokee and Durango, the XT5 is not made to even sniff off-roading conditions thanks to the front-wheel-drive drivetrain. However, this shouldn’t be a concern for most, considering XT5 drivers are more geared toward city driving rather than rural conditions.
All-in-all, the XT5 is a fantastic crossover for more luxury conscious lessees that also want a little pep on their daily commute to and from the office.
