Lincoln scored the No. 5 spot in the J.D. Power 2019 Initial Quality Study, making it the highest-ranked American luxury brand on the list. The annual IQS ranks vehicles and brands based on the number of reported problems per 100 vehicles (PP100) in the first 90 days of ownership, and its high placement solidifies Lincoln as one of the absolute best for quality.
Lincoln scored 84 PP100, which was well under the industry average of 93 PP100. What’s more, Lincoln also saw three of its vehicles rank in the top three for their respective segments. The 2019 Lincoln MKC finished second in initial quality among compact premium SUVs, the all-new Lincoln Nautilus ranked third among midsize premium SUVs, and the Lincoln Navigator was one of only two large premium SUVs to get the nod from J.D. Power for quality.
Lincoln isn’t just scoring with its SUVs when it comes to awards — it’s also scoring big with customers. Lincoln sales are up 1.3 percent through June thanks to robust growth from SUVs overall. The Lincoln MKT, Lincoln MKC, Lincoln MKX, Lincoln Nautilus, and Lincoln Navigator have combined for sales of 39,109 vehicles through the first half of 2019, up 8.3 percent.
The future is only looking brighter in terms of sales and quality with the launch of the all-new 2020 Lincoln Aviator, which hits West Point Lincoln this month. To be one of the first to take the Lincoln Aviator for a spin, call, email or stop in to schedule your test drive.
