About Lincoln Vehicles

Vehicle Summary

As the luxury vehicle brand of the Ford Motor Company, Lincoln was founded in 1917 in Dearborn, Michigan, where its headquarters remains today. The brand is perhaps best known for the Lincoln Continental sedan, which debuted in 1940 and is currently for sale in its 10th generation of production (2017-present). This full-size luxury sedan boasts a standard 3.7L V6 engine at 305 hp (2018 model year), as well as keyless entry, an adaptive suspension, dual-zone climate control, and simulated leather upholstery.

Those with larger families may want to check out the Navigator, a three-row luxury SUV that offers ample space for up to seven passengers and 103 cubic feet of maximum storage space (2017 model year). Other standard features on the full-size 2017 Navigator include leather front- and second-row seats, automatic dual-zone climate control, front/rear parking sensors, and a 14-speaker audio system with surround sound. Also included on the 2017 Navigator is a turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine at 380 hp and rear-wheel drive, though four-wheel drive is optional.

Lincoln also offers several crossover SUV models for sale, ranging from the compact MKC to the larger MKT.

With many vehicles to choose from, it's easy to see why Lincoln has been a popular choice in luxury vehicles for more than 100 years.

Drives like a dream!!!!

The 2018 Lincoln Continental Reserve I purchased at Carmax drives like a dream. I cannot believe I saw it advertised!! My car literally feels like driving a brand new car without paying the original MSRP!! My Continental was fully loaded and belts out 400 HP due to the Dual Turbocharged 3.0 Liter V6 with AWD!! WOW.........WHAT A POWERFUL ENGINE with a smooth transmission! Everything works well together!! I cannot believe I found this car at Frederick originally. It transferred to Gaithersburg and then I requested it be transferred to Laurel, then did the awesome 24 hour test drive! I cannot believe it only had 15k miles on it!!! I cannot think of any CONS.............All PROS!!!!!!!!! Completely worth buying!!

Excellent for Quality & Reliability

We've purchased our 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid new here in Florida. We wanted a reliable luxury car with good gas mileage and this car has delivered exactly that for us. We now have 158,000 miles on it and the only mechanical issue we've had is the heated passenger seat quit working. That's it! The only regret we have was purchasing the extended warranty which we never needed. It gets excellent fuel mileage (39 MPG over the life of the car) if you're not a lead foot driver. You actually get better gas mileage in the city with lower speeds. The only two cons of owning this hybrid is a smaller trunk because of the hybrid battery and because this car is heavier, you will need new tires about every 50,000 miles regardless of what the tire mileage rating says.


  • Reliability: Have owned this car for 8 years and have had no mechanical issues.
  • Braking: Braking actually charges the battery. They are sensitive and anti lock. We have 158k miles and still have not had to change the brake pads.
  • Cabin Noise: They filled the space with foam between the body panels and chase so you get a super quiet ride. You forget how quiet this car really is until you ride in someone else's car.

Elegant, Spacious and Powerful ride!

Having thoroughly researched every Full Size SUV out there - I am constantly impressed with this Lincoln Navigator. Front grille is not overbearing and a throwback look to old Continentals. Spacious inside, HUGE Windows all around which is important in a SUV. Third Row that comfortably seats over Six footers with lots of headroom. Powerful and extremely smooth engine with pretty decent gas mileage. As a former Sequoia owner, who always waited for the engine to struggle and never got better than 13mpg. Oh the best part, Navigator’s are not part of Rental Fleets so you can be rather unique driving this luxury vehicle that isn’t on every corner. Why look like everyone else!!


  • Seat Comfort: Extremely comfortable seats all 3 rows/wife prefers this on long trips no issues
  • Ride and Handling: 3 different types of ride available/ great turning radius/retractable running boards that make it ease to get in/fast&powerful, no V8 can catch me
  • Safety: NHTSA Rated 5 Star in every category of collisions/4 Star on rollover rs. Escalade, Yukon have 4 stars or less.


  • Cargo Space: Wish it had more “nook” space like under floorboards , bigger glove compartment
