As a new car, the MKS is a bit pricey for what you get. But as a nearly new car prices are probably much more reasonable. Have you already ruled out potential alternatives like the Cadillac XTS (more money), Chrysler 300, Hyundai Genesis (about to be redesigned for 2015), and Kia K900 (a new model for 2015)? I compared the XTS to the MKS here. What makes the Lincoln the front runner?
