Re: NAIAS: MKC Concept is the real fresh start for Lincoln [w/poll]
I am continually amazed at how Government Motors gets a pass when it comes to new models and their failure to gain traction is legendary. Look at how bad the new Malibu is compared to even the last generation. Yet, somehow there is no doubt about the viability of the company.
Over at Lincoln there are whispers of disaster - yet, it is well documented that Ford Motor Company was doing EVERYTHING it could to resolve that brand FIRST and the results are manifold - these products are now class best or near so - something that Government Motors cannot say about ANY of its products.
Ford admitted it would resolve Lincoln afterwards and I think we should cut Mullaly and company some friggin slack - let them get their arms around Lincoln and see what works. It is not like you can bring out a car in one year and totally remake the brand - it will be a progression of product. I think that Lincoln may now have found a new design language - that muscular look of the MKC would make an awesome car profile - there is much to like about the new MKZ as I sat in one on Friday last week and it was sweet.
Let's give Lincoln the time it deserves and just enjoy the new products that are around.
Heck, Cadillac still hasn't gotten their act together in over a decade of Arts and Scientology design - and they can't even beat their 1990 sales with that horrible mishmash of cars and trucks they sell!
