What Will a Lincoln Cost to Buy and Insure?
The cost of Lincoln's five models ranges from a high of $63,000 for the SUV Navigator to a low of $39,500 for the MKX sedan. You can probably get a better deal by comparing prices at several dealers.
Remember, a big component of total automobile cost can be the finance charge, and a bad financing agreement can negate a good car deal. There are several online sources that will give you the total vehicle cost over its life, taking into account expected dependability.
The cost of car insurance is subject to many variables:
- Your selected limits of liability
- Your vehicle's age and value
- Your garaging location
- Your driving record and the driving record of other operators
- Whether there any young operators
- The number of miles the vehicle is driven each year
- Your previous claims history
- The use of the vehicle
- The extras you buy like uninsured motorist coverage, towing, roadside assistance and emergency vehicle rental
The more expensive the vehicle, the higher will be your Lincoln insurance premium. If this is important to you, try to get a quote from your agent before you buy the car so you don't get an unpleasant surprise later.
Auto Safety Ratings
Consumer Reports magazine rates the five Lincoln 2013 models as follows for overall safety:
- Navigator - Fair
- MKS - Good
- MKT - Not yet available
- MKX - Fair
- MKZ - Good
Remember that these ratings can change from year to year and the ratings often improve after a model has been in production a while. One of the factors in auto insurance pricing is the safety rating of the vehicle. A low rating can adversely affect your Lincoln's insurance cost.
• Insurers look at the size of your engine to determine rates. You can expect that your insurance rates will be similar to other luxury SUVs with V6 engines.
• Insurers look at the expense of repairs to determine rates. Luxury vehicles tend to be more expensive to fix after an accident, due to the customized and high-tech features.
• Insurers look at the purchase price of a vehicle to determine rates. As a general rule, you can expect a more expensive car to cost more to insure.
