I purchased my MKC in July 2014 shortly after it went on sale for just a shade under MSRP. If it were me, I would take this deal and run. Great vehicle! Plan on keeping it for many years. Good luck.

Thanks for the input. On average we drive our cars for 10-13 years. We were thinking of going non-luxury class, but we've already become accustomed to comfy seating and a quiet, smooth ride which is what brought us to even look at the Lincoln.....well, besides the fact that she's a beauty. :)

We're not in any hurry and think the prices might fall in the summer so that is our only hesitation, but we thought the deal was pretty decent and perhaps we should just bite the bullet now.

The price will definitely fall in couple months when the announce the 2016 modle with all new Sync 3 in it. I am waiting and also considering the 2016 Acura RDX too.

Well, we did it; and she's a beauty.

We got the white titanium with white sands interior, 2.0 AWD with the select equipment package, the power liftgate, climate package, all-weather mats, and the reversible cargo mat.

Out the door it was a tad over $39,700. We put down $2000 (part of which was provided by Lincoln in the form of a rebate) and are financing the balance at 0% for (4) years.

I hate to pin down the dealership for it would be unfair to them to have that over them. But it is a very large volume dealer. The hold backs that Lincoln has on the mkc has different levels depending on volume. We found over $4,000 difference.

You can get over 11% off MSRP. Don't let anyone tell you different!
Well, we didn't do that well, but ended up at 9% off MSRP (which included the salesman throwing in all weather mats and a reversible cargo mat to close the deal), plus 1500 cash back and 0% financing. I thought it was a decent deal, but yours would have been better. :smile

We would have waited until the summer if current inventories had supported the availability of what we wanted without a lot of extra add-ons, but they don't. Since we don't buy cars but once a decade or more and usually buy certified-preowned, I had no clue whether the summer deals/incentives would absorb the extra cost of those unwanted and expensive add-ons: $1700 panoramic roof and/or $995 THX stereo and/or $1100 2.3L engine and/or needless towing packages, etc.

So I'm close to getting a 2016 MKC. Is 11% off a reasonable target to shoot for on the new model year? Has anyone seen that type of discount on the 2016?

If you can get 11% off a 16, go for it, that's a very good deal. But considering it's a new model, I don't think they will go that far. I understand there is a $500 rebate on 16's, but I don't know if it's kicked in yet since they are still working to get rid of 15's. Check the website and ask your dealer. If you're willing to wait a couple weeks, the rebate may start in Sept.

Thanks. I'll be talking to the dealer today so I'll see how it goes. The mkc wasn't even on our shortlist until last week. Wife saw one on the road and was like "what is that?!". Now it's her favorite and she's dead set on it and I'll probably end up with my first Ford product ever. Nice car, but never considered the brand before so Ford/Lincoln is a bit of an unknown to me. I'm just a bit concerned about reliability and resale down the line. If the dealer takes a chunk off msrp it will at least lessen the resale concern to some extent.

Same with my wife. She had been looking since the spring of '13 and once she saw and drove the MKC, it was all over.

I doubt that 11% off MSRP is doable for the 16s, but you can do that and better on the 15s. We negotiated 9% off MSRP in February and after $1500 conquest cash we ended up at 13% under. IF you're willing to get a '15 and can find the colors/options that you want in inventory, I think you could probably get a pretty sweet deal.

Good luck at the dealership. Let us know how it goes.

X-Plan pricing is about 9.4% off. So if you are getting 11% on a 2016, that's great. Where are you getting it? Will they allow me to order one at 11% off?

Wow, you got a great deal! Your mkc is the exact configuration we want except we are going with the ebony interior.
The dealer I talked with today didn't have much interest in dealing on the 16's, too many 15's around, so possibly may get the 15 if I can't get at least 9% off msrp.

Glad you're enjoying the ride.

Actually just now shopping around. So haven't been quoted anywhere near that so far.

Ya, I don't think you can get 9% off MSRP on a '16, but on a '15 I think it's EASILY doable. With the configuration you're looking at and the $2700 cash back from Lincoln, you're at 6% off MSRP right off the bat.

Ya, I thought "we" made out pretty well. Actually it was my wife that did the deal. Not bad if I do say so myself. I guess I'll keep her. :)

Let us know how you make out!!

11% off sounds incredible. You might be able to aim for that on a '15 model but the '16 models won't be discounted that much unless you happen upon a dealership that really wants to sell one last vehicle to get their end of month incentive or something. If that is what you are going for, try to purchase on literally the last day of the month. This is usually when dealers are most willing to give bigger discounts assuming that they have yet to each their monthly sales goal.

Yep, reaching sales goals is definitely the driver. We bought in February after all the President's Day "sales" had passed. We didn't buy at the end of the month, but one week before month end and still made out pretty well. These days I'd be surprised if they didn't have statistical math models telling them when it is and isn't statistically possible to reach goal. If you fall within that magical window where it's still possible to make goal, but still not a slam dunk, you're likely to get a better deal. In any case, you're absolutely right - if they need one or two more sales on that last day of the month, you're golden!!
