Re: 2017 Lincoln Continental Caught in the Wild
Everyone decries the lack of a Lincstang with this generation Mustang. I believe that is short sighted.
A) The Lincoln brand is not ready to support that.
B) The platform, as it exists today, is not ready to support a Lincoln product.
There is a level of NVH that needs to happen with a luxury product, no matter how well it performs. The current Mustang platform does not live up to those requirements. When they are serious about a Lincoln variant, they will make sure that this is baked in.
This is no different than Lincoln producing a $300K Bentley competitor right now. While I am sure that Lincoln / Ford could do it, the brand is in no way ready for it, and all the wishful thinking in the world will not change that fact.
