Now we have a clearer plan for new Lincoln models!
2015: 2016 MKX
2016: 2017 Lincoln Continental
2017: 2017 Lincoln Navigator, 2017 Lincoln MKM - Coupe(sports car platform)
2018: 2018 Lincoln MKA - Sedan(new c-segment platform)
2019: 2019 Lincoln Aviator, New Lincoln MKZ
Since these are New or Redesigned models, the MKC refresh is not there, and there is no MKT and no MKS.
Lincoln will be looking good by 2020
MKA - sedan (c-segment)
MKM - coupe (performance)
MKZ - sedan
Continental - large sedan
MKC - (c-segment CUV)
MKX - (midsize CUV)
Aviator - (large CUV)
Navigator - (large SUV)
Dropping MKT and MKS.
Looking at the Ford brand, the 2017 Escape and 2017 Fusion refresh should augment the New 2017 Expedition and Super Duty launch. 2018 will be big for Escape and Focus, but what's missing the Focus Hatch? It seems the Focus will grow in size like it's competition and become a sedan only. While the Fiesta also grows and offers the sedan and hatch....at least for the US. Maybe we will get the Focus ST and RS as an import from Europe.
2019 brings a New c-segment CUV that's not the Escape. With each model getting bigger. I expect the Escape to grow in size in 2018 making space for a new cuv right below. Which also makes space for the New C-Max small CUV, which could be Ford's new dedicated hybrid vehicle.
This report seems to be the most complete to date, as it lists so many new Lincoln models that Lincoln won't talk about.
