    Fomoconews: Possible New Lincoln Coupe?

    Fomoconews: Possible New Lincoln Coupe?

    went to the Providence Auto Show here in RI to check out the new cars and started talking to a young guy (who worked in the section) about Mercury and the future of it.

    I mentioned the new plan about how Mercury is to become a small premium brand (mentioned in Fords turn around plan) and he said to me

    Oh you must be thinking of the new Lincoln coupe that's going to debut at Detroit, the C i think its called.

    Then I think he mentioned something about it based on the Fusion platform, so maybe a MKZ Coupe?



    Thoughts?

    Re: Possible New Lincoln Coupe?

    I haven't heard anything about a new Lincoln Coupe. But I think Lincoln has had "ENOUGH" attention & new models for awhile. I think it's time for Ford to start pay attention to Mercury by giving the brand a couple of new models & perhaps a few concept vehicles.

    I think it's great that Ford has been working hard at reviving Lincoln, but , enough is enough. Mercury is on the verge of fading into oblivion & it needs help to stop that.

    Hey, Andrew L, WELCOME to FmcNews!!!

    I was almost/just-about-to reply to your thread you-know-where...
    (wasn't sure I wanted to get into the Mercury side of the discussion)

    imho the only really small Lincoln in the near future is the MKG/KuGa
    tho it IS possible that Fomoco could do the showcar/initial version in coupe form - to emphasize sportiness - then the very carlike production model could still be coupe-ISH

    Wonder if the guy you talked to was thinking MKR?
    or
    the vehicle in the EVA video?

    MKG? I havent heard of that...

    Yea, it is kind of random on where I heard it but I figured it might be legit since these guys usually get a heads up on such things. One of the other guys I talked to for a while was a bit older and he said that the new Taurus would be at NAIAS along with the MKT which I figured. He also mentioned something about the Explorer saying that the production version would be showing up soon since they had the Explorer America concept there as well. The older guy seemed more into it and we talked really more about the MKS. I must say it is a beautiful car :)

    oh and thanks for the welcome!

    long time Lincoln Mercury fan here! :)

    cool, Mercury(-Lincoln) fans are always welcome! ;)

    MKG is just what I call the Lincoln version of the Kuga - - assuming there will be one -- you know, put a Mk+KuGa...

    it won't surprise me if the Explorernear-production version shows up at Chicago
    but then imho it ought to (& could!) come out sooner-than-later

    I think its the same MKR just in grey but if they show a coupe on the NAIAS maybe they greenlighted the MKR with RWD

    Road and Track says the Lincoln concept "C" will be at the Detroit Auto show. I think there will be a coupe, guys!
