NY Show 2015 Highlights: Lincoln Continental Concept
Ford’s luxury brand, Lincoln, has struggled to keep on track. Its latest models get positive reaction from public. Just like Cadillac, Lincoln needs a flagship car, too. Actually, it has a flagship named Continental but its sales and production has been stopped since 2002 due to slow sales. And at 2015 New York Auto Show, Lincoln brings back Continental to the crowd. Introduced ad a concept car, Lincoln said that they planned to release it in 2016.
Its exterior design is clean and good, even though its line reminds me of Bentley Continental. But overall, it’s still a nice concept car. Up front, there’s a brand new face of Lincoln design language. It comes up with regular chromed grille and LED headlights with laser-assist high beam. From side, we can see the door handles now using E-Latch technology that is tucked discretely. Lincoln said that the tech made opening and closing the door easier and quieter. The car’s interior features Venetian leather seats and door panels, Alcantara seat inserts and armrests, satin headliner, and shearling wool carpet. Lincoln Continental Concept brings EcoBoost engine V6 3.0 liter. I can’t wait to see it in production form.
