I've been lurking the forum ever since I found myself looking into a Lincoln MKX. This is my first car purchase on my own; however, I'm planning on buying it from the dealer my dad always deals with who seems to give us a pretty good deal that we're usually happy with. That said, I wouldn't be against getting some numbers from the experts on here just so I know a good starting place.
I'm planning on buying in Toronto, but I reside in Barrie and am willing to travel. Looking at:
2017 Lincoln MKX Reserve
- 2.7L GTDI Engine ($2,950)
- 13 speaker Revel Audio ($1,250)
- Technology Package ($1,100)
- Enhanced Security (seems like worthwhile features for just $75, but I really don't have an interest in it)
- Midnight Blue Sapphire
- Cappuccino seats (from what I can tell, this is free in Canada)
Trading in a 2011 Ford Escape Limited V6 with Nav.
I would prefer to take delivery from factory rather than lot, which I know probably gives up some of my bargaining chips. From what I've read, 4-5% off MSRP seems to be the minimum/expected range. Any tips?
This still looks like the best looking car on the road in my opinion. Also looking for any input on the 13 speaker Revel Audio system. I test drove the base system and it sounds great. Is the 13 speaker Revel worth the $1,250?
Looks like MSRP with freight is about $57,875. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give to a complete newbie!
