DEARBORN, Mich., April 25, 2018 – The Lincoln Motor Company continues its winning run with fleet customers as it earns coveted spots on Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America awards list for 2018.

Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Premiere is a five-time Luxury Hybrid winner, and Lincoln MKX Premiere is a two-time winner in the Luxury Mid-Size SUV/Crossover category.
To determine the 2018 Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America™ awards, Vincentric performed a cost-of-ownership analysis measuring over 2,500 vehicle configurations based on typical fleet use.
