Car Loan Calculator: What Will My Monthly Principal & Interest Payment Be?
If you’re looking to buy a car, it’s important to know what your monthly loan payment will be. Use our car loan calculator to see the total principal and interest you’ll owe each month, depending on the loan amount, annual interest rate and length of time over which you’ll repay the loan (the “term”).
For example, if you’re going to borrow $20,000 at 5% and repay it over 5 years, enter “$20,000” as the Loan Amount, “5” as the Term, and “5” as the Annual Interest Rate.
|Annual Interest Rate (%):|
What it Means...
If you borrow $20,000 at 5.00% for 5 years, your monthly payment will be $377.42.
The payments do not change over time. The loan amortizes over the repayment period, meaning the proportion of interest paid vs. principal repaid changes each month. As the loan amortizes, the amount of monthly interest paid decreases while the amount of principal paid increases.
