Re: Lincoln Continental NAIAS

Very nice!

I was hoping they would announce pricing early.

two-tone steering wheel uses light leather on the inner
ring and dark leather on the outer. Silverwood has a
dark tone with silver highlights in a pattern inspired
by birch trees

THOROUGHBRED is inspired by horseracing and it uses
rich dark leather resembling that of a saddle on the seats
and upper instrument panel. A diamond-quilted pattern
that mimics the quilting of a horse blanket is used in
select areas of the seats and doors, while Chilean
Maplewood is used for trim

RHAPSODY is exclusive to Continental. Bright accents
including hand-laid aluminum mesh contrast against the
blue interior
Hmm... It says that Rhapsody is exclusive to the Continental, but they didn't say that about Chalet. I wonder what vehicle will get the Chalet theme?

Re: Lincoln Continental NAIAS

This is probably the nicest interior in Lincoln's history!

Agreed. The interior of the CT6 is a huge disappointment and not at all up to the quality of the class the car aspires to be included amongst.

I was expecting Lincoln to eclipse them and clearly they have. Cadillac may well have lavished more attention on their platform which is vital but what good is it if the customer interface was done on the cheap and looks like it. The material quality, design, and technology of the Lincoln interior appear to be appropriate for the caliber of car the Continental aims to be and several steps above their crosstown rival's upcoming offering.

Job well done Lincoln! This is car is absolutely beautiful inside and out. I only wish they had given the top engine choice more than 400hp.

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.

^ Dearborn's time-honored tradition = drivetrain upgrades the 2nd year

^ edit - don't forget the torque-vectoring set-up

Re: Lincoln Continental NAIAS

The Continental is beautiful both inside and out and was certainly worth the wait. Now this is a Lincoln. I am so proud of the Lincoln brand.
