Re: Lincoln Push Stand Alone Dealerships
I think is very important to the prestige of the brand. Stand alone or premier dealerships are night and day compared to combined dealerships. I'm used to visiting the gorgeous Galpin Premier Collection showroom in Van Nuys, which is a giant showroom that features Lincoln/Black Label, Jaguar, Volvo, Aston Martin, and Lotus. So in that sense, having Lincoln in the same showroom as other luxury brands is fantastic and the only exception I'd like made, Galpin did a great job. Otherwise, when I visit other combo Ford/Lincoln dealers in LA, it's truly depressing seeing Lincoln almost always in a little corner of the showroom or mixed in randomly with Ford products.
How would you guys feel about Lincoln opening up more Lincoln Experience Centers? I think having a few smaller ones in malls (similar to what Tesla has) would be great.
