What should I be paying?
Lincoln knows the real war in this segment of the market is first, the image of the car and second, making it super easy to live with. The company’s designers have definitely delivered on the kerb appeal, but then so have the firm’s customer teams. Whatever Lincoln you select, you get four years/50k miles of free pick up and delivery for serving and repairs – with a loan car supplied while yours is in the shop. Plus access to the concierge and free membership to things like Clear, which allow you to bypass the security lines at the airport.
All of those are wins for the owner, but they wouldn’t be worth much if the car was a pig to live with. Luckily, nothing could be further from the truth. Treated as a large, very comfortable box to transport up to six people and some luggage, very few SUVs come close to the Black Label Navigator’s ability to cosset and please.
With things like all maintenance covered for four years, free car washes whenever you want them and supplementary benefits like membership to Avis’s President’s Club – and a dedicated concierge ready to help at all times, you really should have little to worry about other than the fuel consumption. While it’s not a deal breaker, we were still surprised how thirsty the V6 was even when being sparing with its performance.
