How much will my monthly payment be on a $40k car?

"How can I calculate my monthly payments for a $40,000 car loan? I want to buy a new car. The price range that I am looking at is about $40k."

“Monthly payments on a $40k car loan are usually around $1000.
However, this will vary based on:
  • the length of the loan
  • the interest rate of the loan
  • how much of a down payment you make on the car
If you can’t afford $1000 per month payment, you could put down a larger down payment and opt for a longer car loan.”
