New 2023 Lincoln Crossover
One of the new Lincoln nameplates arriving for 2023 (CX742) is some sort of Chinese-built crossover with the wheelbase of the NG Escape and Corsair. It's powered by a 2.0L and 2.3L engine (no Hybrid indicated which is odd). Just something to be on the look out for as details emerge. It's suppose to be built alongside the Focus Active in China and exported to the US. I guess this could be a coupe-like low-slung utility, really not sure at all right now.
Still finding zero evidence of a NG Sedan or Car at Lincoln through 2023 but the product cadence starts to look very thin after next year if they don't have other vehicles coming. I don't have confirmation at all yet but I have to think Lincoln will do something with C-EV (Mach1). I assume it's one of the two new utility nameplates after Aviator and Corsair, along with whatever they call this 2023 small utility.
I know Lincoln is not getting a version of Mustang (S650) in 2022, mostly because the entire CD6 car program was cancelled at Ford (CD6 Mustang was cancelled back in 2016 I believe). It was suppose to be the basis of the next-generation Continental and was one of the reasons the CD6 was justified by Fields in his bid to resurrect Lincoln. So it's going to be a fairly under utilized platform unfortunately, I don't see any other products using it besides Explorer/Aviator.
I hesitate to say this but I think Lincoln is just out of the car business entirely, at least through 2023, and it might have ended RIGHT when they had the technology people wanted. It's kinda tragic really...hoping that's not the case. Lincoln just needs to start speaking up.
Wings said he had the product codes through 2026, I only have them through 2023. I'm sure he can confirm if there are any new Lincoln S(sport) or C(car) codes pretty easily, or basically anything that's not CX (C Crossover), CD (C/D Crossover), U (SUV), B (B-Segment), P (Truck) or V (Van).
