Re: TrimLevels: mkX for eXample, a POLL

I'd also like to redo the drivetrains asap

replace the 3.7 (303/278) with a 2.3EB (295/305) - they'll prolley do that when the AlumiNator comes out
and I'd have diff tunes of the 2.3 for Fwd ~295hp & Awd ~320hp?
...the 2.7EB can do More...
tho not both F- and A- wheeldrive at each trim
plus add a Sport with the 400+hp 3.0EB
so
Select Fwd = 2.3EB/290hp, Only
Select Awd = 2.3EB/320hp --- 2.7EB/355hp
Reserve Fwd = 2.3EB/300hp -- 2.7EB/335hp?
Reserve Awd = .................... 2.7EB/355hp -- 3.0EB/425
[BL] Fwd = ......................... 2.7EB/335hp?
[BL] Awd = ......................... 2.7EB/355hp -- 3.0EB/425
[WL] Awd = ........................ 2.7EB/355hp -- 3.0EB/425

and ^that^ is only 12 versions compared to the existing 16



otoh (I forgot)
since imho there needs to be a Plug-In
maybe a small(er) EB-PI could replace the 'plain' EB4...
... around 300hp combined, with Virtual-Awd!!
Select = ...EB-PI
Reserve = EB-PI -- 2.7EB/355hp -- 3.0EB/425
[BL] = .....EB-PI -- 2.7EB/355hp -- 3.0EB/425
[WL] = ....EB-PI -- 2.7EB/355hp -- 3.0EB/425
?

edit: 2.7EB = +$2,000 over 3.7 prices^shown
wondering about HowMuch a 2.7EB Z-Sport could cost
( & my fixation:
how the price of an MKS-mce with the same engine as BASE, would fit in )
((my D3/4 "Taurino" too!) ref: Rofl Wafflez's comment)

$37,080 Premiere 2.0 Awd
$36,490 Premiere 3.7 Fwd
$35,190 Premiere 2.0EB Fwd or 2.0-Hybrid Fwd

notes:
- that's a LOT of pricepoints!
- I used blue for the Z-Sport just cuz I dislike "red label"

**see "nother Q" in [Poll For Fun] Lincoln SPORT-Line: "LSL"
- & imho the Z prices need a(n)(little) increase

or was this confusing?

Re: TrimLevels: mkX for eXample, a POLL

Base- other - AWD should be standard
High - BL 2.7AWD because FWD shouldn't be a thing.

I know many argue in favor of the FWD. I am more easily moved on the matter when talking about the base engine. That said, the 2.7EB should at least be AWD exclusively. A FWD 2.7EB shouldn't be a thing.

Agree about Fwd, gjrip, both that
- an entry/base Fwd trim is tempting to include
&
- definitely makes No sense with a 2.7EB that's plainly capable of upto/near 400hp unless deliberately ham-strung
+
- one of my favorite aspects of a thru-the-road/Virtual-Awd hybrid/plugin...DO NOT understand how any mfg can still offer FwdOnly hybrids


so..................
how do you feel about vinyl?
aka LuxurySoftTouch (gag me! )
