I think it's just the angle of the photo. It's low and at an angle you'd never see the car at unless you're a child, or very very short.

2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible

No doubt this photo was just a cheap 'shop of the old version by Lincoln so they wouldn't have to do a whole new photo.

Re: NEWS - 2017 Lincoln MKT - Refresh

it'd be GREAT if anyone could find an '''original''' version of that picture with the old grille

just-imho,
the changes are more substantial AND subtle than any (amateur) chop
OR angle-distortion

hmm
maybe this is a companion artwork to David Woodhouse's Conti sketch?

Will the other SUV/CUV's have the new grille or will they still have the horizontal "whiskers"?

I was thinking; 2017
- cars = new grille
- utility = horizontal grille.

What I still find odd is that Lincoln still has the 2015 MKT on the website. It's April 2016. Looks like Lincoln will skip a 2016 MKT and go right to a 2017 slightly refreshed model.

Re: NEWS - 2017 Lincoln MKT - Refresh

^ it's my understanding that any vehicles built Jan1 2016 or later can no longer be considered/paperworked as 2015my; ie "2015 models" can be built only during cy2014 & cy2015...
...anyone want to stop by a dealer & look at VINs?

we heard ALL models will transition to the NewFace,
I hope they time the others to co-incide as much as possible with the aluNavi going on sale next year

&
just added a 4th MKTemp up above - - think it's good that they didN'T do more than the ribs grille insert for now = breaks-the-MOLD / hints at more changes(?)
which
imho they'll need to do as much as they can with the 'old bones' to make any real impact
