Lincoln Continental
The Continental returns to the Lincoln lineup as the flagship of Ford’s luxury brand, with a focus on quiet luxury and elegance. Continental gets power from a new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that is exclusive to Lincoln and expected to produce 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The available all-wheel-drive system incorporates Dynamic Torque Vectoring to transfer torque between the rear wheels when cornering for better handling and stability. Perfect Position seats can be adjusted up to 30 different ways with heating, cooling and available massage functions. The rear seats offer available adjustable recline, heating, cooling and massage as well. The outside door handles are an interesting design element, moved from the traditional position in the door to the chrome trim below the windows. A microprocessor-controlled E-latch electronic door handle releases the door, and the available auto-cinch feature secures the door when closed gently. The Lincoln Continental will go on sale in the United States and China in the fall of 2016.
