Re: Lincoln Continental NAIAS
I love everything about the car except for the grille, that needs to go back to the drawing board again. The plinth idea doesn't become the central focus of the design but instead all attention is brought to the sagging edges on either side. The shrunken Lincoln logo is also lost in the mesh of the grille and the idea is generally lost in translation. For the most part, it's just a weak copy of a Jag grille.
The interior is probably the best American interior we've ever seen.
No 9-spd mentioned...I'm sure that means 6-spd which you don't want to draw attention to.
Technologically the Lincoln doesn't seem to break much ground, I haven't heard about any new features besides the door handles and seats, the rest is currently available features in Fords and Lincolns. The updated cruise control is a bit of catch-up, this is an area where Ford has been really lacking.
