My '17 Reserve MKC only has 11,600 miles on it. I decided I need a bigger vehicle, but don't want to spend $60,000 + on a new Nautilus. I've been shopping for a new Ford Edge and am only getting offers of $25,000 - $27,000 for my trade. MSRP was over $46,000 when new.

Lincolns do depreciate faster than the Fords they are based on and faster than the target competition BMW, Audi, MB, Lexus and Acura. This really holds the brand back. Much as I have liked our MKC, it will be the last Lincoln we own. We also have a 2018 Edge Titanium and it's just a nice as the Lincoln.

My 2015 MKC will be the last for me as well when my lease ends in June. I tried a 2019 MKC but have decided on a 2019 Volvo XC60. I was told that the wholesale value of my MKC is only $17-18,000 and the residual value of the lease is $25,000 so the car dealers won't even consider it for a trade. I'll just be turning it in and picking up the XC60 in June.

Exactly why I bought mine used. Paid a bit more for a certified ( Black Labell, not that that means much to a second owners) used by a dealer rep. 2016, 27,000 miles Bumper to Bumper for another 3 years. Drivetrain more time yet. My wife wanted a new car with a great fancy interior. The only ones she saw she liked were the new Volvo XC 40 and the Mercedes GLC both optioned out the way she wanted it was $50,000. I show her the MKC interior and that was I. The running. We went to look new but I knew our local dealership had some used upper scale ones and was ok with used ( I knew the depreciation and would never buy a Lincoln new). I feel I saved almost $25,000 from what I could have paid with the others ( or this new as it listed for 49,000 new.)

Caravan has offered a higher value than dealers or CarMax. Purchased a 2015 2.0 Reserve with 18k for 21k. I have purchased over 30 vehicles and for my purposes Carvana has offered the best option.

I'm so happy with my car and price paid that I don't think I'll ever buy a brand new vehicle again. The first buyer really is the sucker. I keep my cars a very long time; last one I bought new and had for 13 yrs.


In January I paid $28k for my 2016 Reserve, put $16k down and just paid it off.


I would only worry about resale value if I was one who liked to buy a new car very often. Anyone worrying about being upside is not putting enough down to start with. jmho

A lease will only work to the buyers benefit if they procure a vehicle with a high resale value in their specific area where they live. In Texas a properly equipped truck will have a high resale value, Subaru’s will not. Subaru’s have a high resale value in New England. Lincoln’s, with a few exceptions, do not have a high resale value especially compared to Lexus and other competitors.

Peace
