Although Lincoln had high hopes for their MKS luxury sedan to become the unofficial replacement for the Lincoln Town Car, loyal Lincoln owners and new car buyers weren’t especially impressed after its debut in 2009. Continuing to up the ante and becoming the first full size Lincoln to offer front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive, the MKS also boasted the first turbocharged gas engine in the Lincoln lineup thanks to its 3.5L Eco-Boost twin turbocharged V6 engine.

Despite Lincoln’s efforts to improve the MKS and offer customers a reliable alternative to the Town Car, the MKS declined in popularity and ultimately became a dark horse in the Lincoln line up. With a starting price of $49,000, Lincoln sold very few models with MKS owners suffering the most thanks to a 30.4% depreciation rate after a year. In 2016, Lincoln stopped production of the MKS and reintroduced the Lincoln Continental, MKC and MKX with MKS owners stuck with used car values at $34,000 and lower depending on mileage, age, and condition.
