That's fair. Then we agree.

I guess what I should have said was:

"If you don't like platform sharing then you're gonna have a bad time. But if you have faith in the way Lincoln is heading, given the continued leaps and bounds of improvements and differentiation, I think you'll be satisfied."

Re: Lincoln: No Reveal At NIAS!

following from an fb convo to an article to a video ...& hopefully to NAIAS...

This Lincoln MKZ Is Helping To Advance Self-Driving Technology
FordAuthority / AutolineDetroit

by Aaron Birch — Jan 6, 2017

We would consider Ford to be something of a leader in the race to bring vehicle autonomy to the masses, but the automaker is far from the only player in the field; everyone from Tesla Motors, to Google, to Uber is competing to be the first to make self-driving technology ready for primetime.

And then, there’s a company called Renesas, which brought a self-driving 2017 Lincoln MKZ to the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. It’s still only a prototype, as should be apparent in the Autoline clip above based on the large, unsightly ranging sensor on top and the trunk full of unhidden equipment, but it was brought along for demonstration purposes nonetheless.

According to Renesas Marketing Manager of Advanced Drive Systems Solutions John Buszek, Renesas has attempted to make headway on several of the most important problems facing future autonomous cars: offering redundancy for the purpose of safety, lowering power consumption, and baking in some level of cyber security to mitigate the risk of hacking. To those ends, Renesas’ self-driving Lincoln MKZ can find a safe place to pull over on its own in the case of an emergency, consumes just 25W of electricity to run its autonomy-related equipment, and makes use of signal encryption and authentication to defend against cyber attacks.

For the full scoop on Renesas’ autonomous Lincoln MKZ and how it’s helping to advance self-driving technology, be sure to watch the full Autoline video:

Re: Lincoln: No Reveal At NIAS!

Ford had the F series reveal, and of course all their electrification plans and city of the future crap, I mean stuff. But yeah, looks like no Lincoln. Bummer. I probably won’t go this year. Strange, but NAIAS draws more press exposure than the next 3 biggest shows COMBINED……and FoMoCo comes up short.

They could have at least introduced the Head Up Display on the Conti, right? LOL!

I have owned several GM vehicles with HU. Useless, IMO. It was cool for like a week, then I never even used it except on occasion I would remind myself I had it......for like a second.

Re: Lincoln: No Reveal At NIAS!

more for a couple of (the few) comments I read...

the "winners" of the new 3-way-split VotY (vehicles of the year):

• barely a Cuv
• barely a truck

Re: Lincoln: No Reveal At NIAS!

I wonder if there is a reason to stay until next midnight or we can change the name of the thread to Lincoln/Ford: No Reveal at NAIAS :P
