Return of the Mack – the all-new 2017 Lincoln Continental hits North America and China dealers Fall 2016
The running comments about Lincoln being your grandpas car are getting pretty old. The American automaker has worked hard rebranding their image, with or without Matthew. With a new model lineup of progressively-styled products including the MKX and MKC crossovers, Lincoln is bringing back the classic Continental full-size sedan. And, no, it’s not your grandpa’s car.

400-hp All-wheel drive power
Powered by an all-new Lincoln-exclusive 3.0-litre V6 engine with twin turbochargers, the 2017 Continental produces a projected 400-hp and 400 lbs.-ft. of torque is designed for smooth and responsive, yet quiet power. Paired to a new all-wheel drive system, the luxury sedan looks to offer confident handling and stability.
Seats inspired by private jets
Inside the 2017 Lincoln Continental, the seats can adapt up to 30 ways – dubbed Perfect Position Seats, inspired by private jets and high end office furniture. Rear passengers can enjoy first-class travel amenities as well with available features including audio and climate controls, sunshades and reclining heated, cooled and massaging rear seats. The streamlined interior design provides generous rear legroom as well, which we’d expect from a full-size sedan.
Full-size Sporty Design
Luxury and sport seem to go hand-in-hand in today’s sedan market, and the new Continental’s exterior design is no exception. Styling is modern yet progressive with Lincoln’s new signature grille. The door handles are designed to offer elegant and effortless entry with new e-latch door release. The release is discretely integrated within the belt line, leaving the body side clean. With the gentle touch of a button, the vehicle’s doors pop open and then use available power-cinching technology to automatically close and secure.
