8 weeks is a bit of a wait, but I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end. GLad to hear about people making orders and getting a time line on when to expect delivery.
Was it your MKZ that convinced you to stick with Lincoln for the MKC? What do you like best about your MKZ, and have you been affected by the lowered fuel economy rating on your MKZ?
If it follows like the MKZ, the actual timeline will firm up in a week or so. My salesman is good about following up and adjusting my expectations.
The MKZ really did the trick for me on trusting Lincoln. It has been a great experience so far. I got it fully loaded with all the tech and luxury stuff - and all for a relatively reasonable price. My prior car had been an Acura which was more expensive and not nearly as tech heavy - and it took premium gas.
The MKZ has put the joy back in driving for me.
What do I like best about the MKZ. Several things, the air conditioned seats are foremost. The Panoramic roof is probably the next thing. Then the tech stuff. The quiet ride, the comfort - frankly it is all good. I should probably do a commercial!
I have not been as severely affected as others by the lowered fuel economy rating. But, I also did not necessarily buy the car for fuel economy. I both it for looks and luxury and it was great that the Hybrid engine was at no additional cost over the Ecoboost engine and significantly less than the 3.7L engine. I also do not have expectations of consistently getting the EPA mileage. That said, my lifetime MPG (13 months - 12K miles) has been 41.9 MPG. The summer fill-ups have consistently been right at 43-45 MPG, the winter fill-ups were much lower at 36-40 MPG. The winter blend and cold weather (yes, we do get some cold weather in GA) really did affect the Hybrid engine.
When looking at the MKC, I decided to order one with all the goodies and not to compromise and buy off the lot. The total cost was a tad less than the MKZ - so that was a plus too!
