    So Ford partners with Harley Davidson and Lincoln is partnering with Jack Daniels? As far as other colors they could do a nice Johnny Walker Red!! If only John DeLorean were still alive the could partner for a Snow White label!!

    ^ Johnnie Walker says they produce red, blue, black, and gold labels of Scotch whisky...

    I'm thinking
    [Black Label] for some kind of super-executive trim tho not nec. all that high-priced - maybe a trim that would cut-across all their other trims (which need cutting imho)
    & going with the easy associations:
    [Red Label] for performance
    &
    [Green Label] for a coming broad-range of electrified or partially-electrified vehicles
    ...
    [White Label] might be a decent name for their 'Bespoke Program'
    as in a blank white paper...you choose what it gets

    ...and if they had announced 4 new lines, you would have already been contemplating 16!

    I hope black label will be a new standard line with interiors and performance notched up a couple steps. It could offer a very unique look and feel.

    The bespoke program should be different, and it should be all about customizing any vehicle at a premium price. This should include seats, seat covering, interior accents, digital dash configuration, interior color, exterior color and options.

    While I think that would be an awesome use of Black label unfortunately Lincoln doesn't have any vehicles nor the platform to back that up. None of the above listed companies water down their performance labels, they only put them on cars that can back up the claim and Lincoln will be laughed at if they put it on a front wheel drive faux performance car. It would be the equivalent of the mid 70's high performance sticker craze.
