    The aviator looks nice. The Ranger is about worthless imo with the motor and bed they're offering.

    Copy that.
    They put something with more cylinders and more turbos along with more suspension travel, different story.

    I am not one of those guys that thinks I need an F-250 Powerstroke just because everyone else does.

    I actually like that one. I like Lincoln products but I find they don't retain much value. Ford SUVs suffer the same faith.

    Price used SUVs and you will find Ford and Lincoln are well below similar vehicles with same mileage and year model. They simply don't hold their value for some reason...

    A few reasons the way I see it.
    The Fords were a heavier which effects gas mileage.
    The Fords also made due with the 5.4L at 310 hp way too long when a) the GM brands upgraded the 5.3 and added the 6.0L then 6.2L and b) Ford trucks upgraded to the 5.0 Coyote, 3.5TT and 6.2 Hurricane. They should have upgraded powertrains to F-150 specs soon after. 2015 was too long.
    Brand loyalty as well.

    Things going for the Fords?
    Better ride and handling with IRS.
    MUCH better third row seating space. Actual 8 full size people. Kids don't like to sit in the third row of a Tahoe.
    Durability/reliability is a wash with the GM's, you really cannot buy a "BAD" vehicle anymore.

    Wifey's favorite car ever was her Explorer. So, I'll probably get her one of these when the time comes. You have to wait for prices to drop on Lincolns in their 2nd year of production.
