For Example:

Continental Collection
Continental Metro - compact sedan and coupé
Continental Cosmopolitan - midsize sedan and coupé
Continental Town Car - full-size sedan
Continental Mark IX - full-size coupé

Navigator Collection
Navigator Submariner - sub-compact utility
Navigator Atlas - compact utility
Navigator Aviator - midsize utility
Navigator Yacht-Master - full-size utility
So you have two brands, why bother calling it Lincoln at all? And do you really want to call any Lincoln a 'yacht'? And what about cars that blur the lines between car and crossover/SUV?
