Each year has something new and major going on for the brand which will help it to slowly catch-up with the rapid pace of the industry. But Lincoln literally needs to learn to walk before it can run and they are still in Kindergarden when everybody else is in College. Every year we should see them move up a grade but at least they aren't flunking this time.
Bipolar much? LOL

Well, we still have the New Navigator, New MKZ, New Aviator?(New Explorer is due), New whitespace sedan.
actually
by my count
in one way at least
we're only getting ONE fully new vehicle ()...
...imho it's sorta-fair to consider the Aviator a new Name (& everything else) for an existing vehicle = MKT
tho
just-maybe NAIAS will have a s'prise...

imho "alongside" may not be at all accurate
if the MKC is in a separate factory, think it doesn't have to share much if anything with the nextgen Escape (looks towards MAP)

imho the Germans are in a snooty Yurpish finishing school where all they're really 'taught' is that they're special/speshul
and that NYC-Brand might still be doing drugs in the park more than attending classes

So you're comparing a perfect/touched up press release photo with great lighting, different angle, fully optioned model to a poor spy shot at a terrible angle, through a window, terrible lighting, and what clearly appears to be a base model, and complaining that it's terrible and the "gap" grows bigger every year?

Gotcha...
