I like how the pattern is thicker towards the middle then dissipates out.

This is still a "Preview" which is slightly less than a "Concept" I suppose but it's still obviously very custom finished.

This is the first Ford/Lincoln to have some modern design attributes like the flatter front fenders which I hope is part of the final design. The creases are nice and sharp but again that could be more custom than production.

The interior is great, looks extraordinary. The back looks simple but sharp, it has that Land-Rover look I like. What I'm a little turned off by is the long tapered design toward the back, this vehicle looks a bit longer, lower and more wagon-like than I'm personally looking for but we'll see if t hey raise it all up a bit in production.

Interesting how it's not a full on concept, but also not a full production car! Although it looks 99% production ready, minus the side view mirrors and rear tail lights!

Also, minus the signature horizontal rear red bar, the sides of the tail lights kind of remind me of the ones on the Jaguar XF.

Overall....I'm excited. I'm curious....is it ONLY going to be a Plug-in Hybrid?
I don't see what's not production feasible with the taillights?

As far as we know (or at least think we know), it'll have a gas-only option, and the plug in option.

I like it as a variation of the grille. That, however, is one thing I could see changing for the full production model (going to the Navigator's star shadow one).

I didn't notice THAT until I just saw the cars.com YouTube video of the car mentioning it. Looks really cool! Gives it a 3D effect. I wonder if they'll keep it for the final production! Really distinct!

The 2 things I see that need to be changed are the vents on the dash and the Aviator badge on the side I don't think it will be THAT 3D when it comes to production.

The interior is great, looks extraordinary. The back looks simple but sharp, it has that Land-Rover look I like. I'm a little concerned that the rear belt line looks like it dips down toward the back which I really don't like on SUVs since it makes them look long and wagon-like which is the vibe I'm getting here and that is turning me off a bit.
I don't know....I think what we're seeing is basically the production model. The mirrors will change, and that c-pillar looks a bit thin, but otherwise to me it looks largely production-ready. The interior certainly is with all the switchgear and whatnot in place.

I'm not so sure about it now, the grille looks too narrow with this treatment.

Oh, I just realized they finally oriented the light bar properly instead of forcing the upside down design I've always disliked on the MKX.

The metal trim pattern reminds me of Spyker interiors which is airplane themed too. I am guessing some airplane themed Black Label will be exclusive to this.
