Our Lincoln Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

Despite all of Matthew McConaughey's efforts, Lincoln's resale values just aren't that great, although the MKZ generally outperforms the Navigator. Lincoln's decreasing market share has led to a smaller buyer's market for Lincolns, and as a result, the demand for new or slightly used Lincolns, has diminished. Ford's luxury brand has found more success with rental fleets, and as a result, better deals are found in the pre-owned markets.

The 2017, 2016 & 2015 Lincoln model years are currently the best values in our opinion.

On average, expect to pay only 56% of the original cost with 75% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 Lincoln. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 19.44 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2016 & 2015 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
