Trade-in equity will have little to no bearing as lenders don't care about that. They care about loan to value and your credit score. As long as the item being used to secure the loan is genuinely worth the value of the loan and you're a good credit risk, they would be dumb NOT to write the loan.

The other thing is that many of the lowest rates out there are shorter terms. 36, 42, 48 month terms are common for the lowest rates with steps up increasing the rate simply because the longer term still lowers the payment and the consumer will take it.
