The 2017, 2018 & 2014 Lincoln model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 60% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 Lincoln. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 22.88 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2018 & 2014 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
