We Love the Lincoln MKC — and You Will Too

New Lincoln MKC Interior
The new Lincoln MKC has a starting MSRP of $32,880.

As with every Lincoln ever manufactured, the new 2017 Lincoln MKC is a beauty to behold. It’s also much more than its good looks. There are so many reasons why we all love the Lincoln MKC here at West Point Lincoln, but we’ll try to limit ourselves to just two for now.

Silence is Golden

Seems like a strange reason to love a vehicle, but don’t people usually want to hear the roar of a powerful engine? Actually, we prefer the steady purr of the Lincoln MKC’s 2.3-liter GTDI turbocharged engine. And we prefer to feel that power for ourselves, from the plush comfort of our active noise control cabin, than have to announce it to everyone on the street.

New Lincoln Navigator Shows Off in NYC

new Lincoln NavigatorThe 2016 New York Auto Show featured the debut of a Lincoln Navigator Concept, teasing drivers with the prospect of a next-gen luxury SUV while also incorporating outlandish styling cues, like a staircase leading up to the Navigator’s gull-wing doors. Now, the new Lincoln Navigator – this time with more practical design elements, though no less luxurious – has made its New York Auto Show debut once again, ahead of a 2018 model year launch.

When we say luxurious, we mean it. The new, slick styling puts the 2018 Lincoln Navigator at the forefront of its segment in terms of sophisticated good looks. And with a more powerful drivetrain and an interior practically overflowing with coveted features, there’s something for everyone in the new Navigator. The twin-turbo engine under the hood produces a staggering 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, while seating in the cabin features more comfortable padding and premium materials than ever before. The SYNC3 system and other connectivity features add an extra touch of class too.

spring car cleaning

Remove Winter Grime with Spring Car Cleaning

Winter can leave your car in rough condition. Luckily, spring car cleaning is the perfect solution for pepping up the look and feel of your car. From vacuuming the inside to polishing the outside, spring cleaning is a great way to make your drive more enjoyable. Plus, cars that are cleaned regularly also tend to retain their value better than cars that are left dirty. Read on to learn some tips and tricks for cleaning.

 

According to Popular Mechanics, you should clean the inside by first removing any trash that’s accumulated over the past few months. Once you get rid of trash, you can vacuum up any dirt or dust. It’s best to use a shop vac, and many prefer to have a screwdriver handy to lift up any materials that may hide dirt. Finally, consider scrubbing the upholstery and carpet with automotive interior cleaner for a truly fresh feel.

 

Next, clean the exterior. One of the most important tips is to rinse off the exterior before scrubbing or washing. Rinsing removes dirt and dust particles that can scratch the paint. Next, wash and wax, but be sure to dry with a chamois cloth when finished. Many also prefer to apply metal or chrome polish as well, perfect for that added shine.

 

Finally, wash the windows. You can use a mixture of vinegar and water, though many prefer an ordinary ammonia-based household cleaner as well. Be sure to avoid paint, as window cleaner will cause peeling. One good tip is to finish by rubbing the windows with clean newspaper—a trick detailers use to remove glare.

How to Increase Your Trade-In Value

Increase Your Trade-In Value - Houston, TX
Use your trade-in as your down payment or as a great way to lower your auto loan.

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, one of the best things you can do for your wallet is to trade in your old one. Trade-in vehicles are great for new car buyers and can act as a down payment or take a major chunk off of your auto loan – just make sure you get the most for your old car. Here are a few tips on how to increase your trade-in value, from us here at West Point Lincoln!

 

  • Clean – Treat a dealership’s inspection of your trade-in vehicle as a sort of interview for your car. Make sure your vehicle is presentable. Wash and wax the exterior, buff out any scratches, and fix any dents if possible. Take the time to detail the interior as well. Pay special attention to the windows and windshield to ensure they’re spotless!

 

  • Document – If you had any service done while you owned the vehicle, make sure to provide the proper documentation. Having proof of your vehicle’s maintenance records can only increase the trade-in value, after all.

 

  • Shop – Competition among dealerships works in your favor. One dealership may offer more for your trade-in vehicle if you buy there instead of at a competing dealership. Weigh your options and take the best offer available!
