This has been one of the best trucks i've owned! I had a Ford F-150 Lariat previously and this truck blows it away. The exterior looks great along with the interior, the interior could be better quality in spots but overall it's pretty good. I put a lot of miles on it each year and only had one problem with one of the back up sensors, but Ford's great warrenty (50,000 bumper to bumper warrenty) backed me up and I didn't pay a penny. The gas mileage isn't bad for such a large truck I avg. about 14-15 in the city and 18-20 on the highway. This is a great truck and would recommend it to anybody. I'd by another one any day! Lincoln should have never stopped making this car,maybe they will again
I am absolutely thrilled with my "new to me" TRUCK. I wanted to get rid of my MOM mobile safari van. I wanted a "TOY that was functional" NO van and Not gray. Was leaning toward a HUMMER and decided it would not be functional for our family. We need to HAUL our toys in the back of a truck; 4-wheeler, kayak, motorcycle plus tow a trailer at times. I get alot of compliments on my truck and people think it is brand new it is a 2006. No buyers remorse here and so far it gets 17.3-18.2 MPG not to bad!! FUN to drive. LOVE IT!!! PS. My Husband and son had to modify the muffler to add "rumble" it was to quiet for them. I have to admit I enjoy the rumble also. Thanks Honey and my son!!
The best vehicle I have ever owned! It is a real "head turner". Pretty truck inside and out. Could easily be used to attend a black tie affair. The only drawback is fuel economy so I still spend a lot of time in my work truck.
Dealer was the best i've ever dealt with. The truck is beautiful (burgundy color) and gets lots of compliments. Air wouldn't blow cold at idle unless it was a overcast day and it had no power at all. Probally the weakest vehicle i've ever owned. The local dealer said they just reset the computer code and all was well. Not so , the air blows cold MOST of the time but it still has NO power and the gas mileage is terrible. not really a lincoln, just a F-150 with some chrome. Lincoln can sell it off the name and the looks but they really need to make it a Lincoln for those that know the difference.
The engine comes alive at 3,300 rpm, probably due to the variable intake runners, and the transmission upshifts at 5,000 rpm. Manually upshifting doesn't help performance, as the rev limiter kicks in at 5,100 rpm. This truck doesn't feel quick in the least, or even very refined by modern luxury vehicle standards.
We noticed significant ABS noise and vibration, and the pedal was a bit soft for our taste. There is plenty of front-end dive and rebound, more than the F-150, possibly because the Lincoln weighs more. One positive note, however, is that fade wasn't a problem.
Even by full-size truck standards this was a tricky vehicle in the slalom. The amount of body roll combined with a tendency to have the rear end come around with a "snap" effect made it very difficult to drive. It feels softer than the F-150 for ride quality purposes, but it makes the handling somewhat unpredictable at the limit.
