LOL...forget Lincolns - I feel like if I buy the Explorer I want (test drove couple months ago) I'd be really treating myself....and racking up some huge sales & excise tax bills. I'm not saying there isn't value for the price or bang for buck BUT that they start any conversation with the starting price vs the vehicle configred where it it likely to be configured makes quick comparisons or price silly.

So wrt the article I'll bet the $98K car Mullaly was driving was VERY well appointed and (betting) that no one orders or wants to get stuck with an MKZ that leaves the lot with it's "just under $36,999" base configuration - probably a lot closer to $58K like the MKS I just checked out last week.
