Lincoln Depreciation

Despite all of Matthew McConaughey's efforts, Lincoln's resale values just don't hold up that well over time. While Lincoln does well in a shorter time period, their values fall off fast in later years, ranking them at the bottom by year 7. 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 is our top pick for the best model year value for the Lincoln vehicles. With the 2017, you would only pay, on average, 55% of the price as new, with 67% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2015 and 2019 model years are also attractive years for the Lincoln models, and provide a relatively good value. Our rankings consider multiple factors, including original new prices, current prices, maintenance costs and remaining years of overall predictabe expenses. Our top ranked model year represents the most car for the money with a Lincoln model.
