Perhaps the 3.0 portion of they hybrid powertrain could be detuned for the Explorer's use.
I probably buying the Aviator, so detune the 3.0T,

Iím thinking the MkIX will get the rear hinged doors and be a four door coupe it could compete with a the CLS and A7. I donít see Lincoln having a need for a crossover smaller than the Mkc when people complain about the space in that as it is. So what else could it be?

Also Lincolnís centennial (with Ford) is coming up rite around the time the last of the four vehicles should debut.
Ugh they tried a 4 door Mark in the early 80s and it didn't take well (not counting the 50s Marks)

If they do a new Mark I think it should be 2 door only.

Never said that but nice try.

It's a historic nameplate same thing if they started making a 4 door Mustang.

Ugh they tried a 2 door that didn’t work the last time Either. Lincoln isn’t going to sell people on them being a maker of sexy 2 door coupes at the moment but they need a style halo car that can also be spacious enough for luxury customers. I think at this point they can’t get back into the personal luxury coupe market and it would be a waste of money.

Last time Lincoln tried a 2 door was the Mark VIII they pulled out of that market because they wanted to replace the Mark series with the LS, before that the Mark Series was going uninterpreted since 1969. If Mercedes can still do a 2 door halo type vehicle why can't Lincoln? They had one for most of their existence and cost would probably be minimal if it shares the same platform as the Mustang. It's a status symbol.

I think any "Mark" car going forward would likely be a CLS/A7 kind of 4-door coupe. While there are some halo coupes still out there, that whole market segment has shrunk brutally. I'd be all for a properly impressive Lincoln coupe, but I think the marque would need to get at least 2-3 very solid sellers in place before they could do that kind of niche vehicle.

If GM can justify Buick, and if Honda can justify Acura, we can damned well have Mercury back.

This is my opinion exactly. It'd be nice to see a true coupe from Lincoln, but it'd be more realistic for it to be a 4-door coupe. Unless they can make a case for 2 and 4 door coupe of the same vehicle.
