The 2015 Lincoln Navigator is a Big, Luxurious, American Value
It may be hard to associate a vehicle that can cost north of $70,000, such as a certain large American luxury SUV, with the word “value,” but it’s not impossible. Especially if you’re good at measuring lifecycle costs.
Automotive data analysis firm Vincentric is. It honored the 2015 Lincoln Navigator with its Best Value in America™ award in the Premium Large SUV category. The company incorporated rebates and incentives into its estimate of the rig’s current market price to determine the Navigator’s total cost-of-ownership. According to Lincoln, Vincentric does the same with “over 3,000 vehicle configurations based upon typical use by consumers” every month.
The Navigator’s value was computed by Vincentric’s use of a statistical analysis that incorporated its total cost of ownership with its current market price.
I’m no statistician, but I know the $75,760 Lincoln Navigator L 4X4 that I recently tested had several features – such as Ziricote wood trim, an enhanced 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, and plenty of storage space – that I found valuable.
