The Lincoln MKX may be long gone at this point, but the luxurious crossover still presents used vehicle shoppers with a pretty attractive deal, according to several recent studies. That list includes the 2018 Lincoln MKX, specifically, being named one of the most reliable crossovers/SUVs on the market by Consumer Reports, as well as a 2023 Best CPO Value award in the luxury mid-size SUV category from Vincentric. Now, the Lincoln MKX has also made the cut as one of the best 10-year-old used vehicles for the money in a new study from iSeeCars.
Among the 20 best 10-year-old used vehicles for the money, the Lincoln MKX ranked fifth with an average sales price of $14,999 and an average remaining lifespan of 101,295 miles – or $1,481 per 10k miles. On average, iSeeCars notes that 10-year-old Lincoln MKX models have around 46.5 percent of that lifespan remaining, too.
To come up with this list, iSeeCars analyzed the prices of more than 1.1 million five- and 10-year-old used vehicles sold between September and December 2023, then compared them to the remaining lifespan of those cars, based on a proprietary model that estimated the probability each vehicle would survive to various mileage thresholds. This data was calculated using odometer readings from over 312 million vehicles.
“With the spike in used vehicle pricing over the past five years, buyers are seeking the best value for their used-car dollars,” said iSeeCars Executive Analyst Karl Brauer. “We’ve identified the models with the lowest purchase price and the longest remaining lifespan, providing shoppers with a list of used cars they can purchase and rely on for many years. “Used car buyers on a tight budget can still find plenty of life left in these 10-year-old cars. For less than $13,000 a vehicle like the Buick Encore or Mazda CX-9 still has more than 40 percent of its lifespan remaining, which equates to more than 80,000 miles of use.”
