All-New Lincoln Continental Concept Doesn’t Suck
After decades of going from an amazing luxury cruiser, to terrible piece of utter crap, Lincoln has finally brought back the Continental with this amazing concept.
Today, before the New York International Auto Show commences later this week, Lincoln wowed the world with this brilliant concept. And it once again shows the world that concepts, and production cars don’t need to be leaked before the event to have the desired effect.
According to the press release, this new Lincoln Continental Concept “Shows the future of quiet luxury and upcoming Full Size Sedan.”
While Lincoln categorically states that this is just a concept and not a preproduction vehicle, the language inside the release speaks to a much more production ready car.
“Luxury at its best is about simplifying and quietly exceeding expectations, rather than being the loudest statement on the road,” said Mark Fields, Ford Motor Company president and CEO. “The Continental Concept showcases the promise of quiet luxury from Lincoln going forward. It also is a strong indication of what’s to come next year as we introduce our new Lincoln Continental full-size luxury sedan.”
Additionally, the car is driven by an exclusive 3.0L EcoBoost V6, however the rest of the drivetrain is unknown at the moment.
The car will be officially unveiled to the rest of the public this Wednesday at NYIAS. So what do you all think of the new concept? Is it just the thing to reinvigorate the brand, or too little too late?
