This is sounding awesome!

If Lincoln does not have a RWD vehicle however in the future when it is time to replace my LS... this might have to suffice

Please no 'wannabe' Jaguar styling...especially the XF. I think the XF has lost the uniqueness of the S Type and is blending in with all the other midsized luxury cars.

Even with the great engine and suspension, Lincoln can not blend in with the crowd (see MKS). It does not have the brand image to pull it off yet.

Maybe Lincoln changed their C-pillars to the look of the mid 60's continental the rest of the shape would not blend in as much.

Hey 2b2 you should add that rumor of the possible I6 that Ford is working on... perhaps a new exclusive Lincoln engine?

Rumor was that the MKS was supposed to be at Chicago but now who knows...

I am hoping the MKZ will be at NY. I am planning on going to the NY Auto Show again this year

Re: Lincoln 2013my/2012cy, rumors & web experts

I'd be very surprised to see the MKZ at NYC since it isn't due out until next year sometime (think it might be the first 'merger' car)
the only thing imho that Lincoln could show at NYC is a new C-Segment concept - I say segment cuz No Idea if it'd be car or Cuv at this point
whatever, IF they show something the main news I'll want is its ENGINE
would love to get a hint as to whether the 2.7v6 will happen

Well the rumor was that the MKZ was supposed to be at NY...

since wings already saw both the new Fusion and MKZ and he said its usually only a few months later till they release it to the public I gotta believe it would be at NY since that's at the end of April.

I really hope they show something soon, I don't want to wait till LA

^ well, we'll see, Andrew

I believe (without checking) that I asked Wings WHEN he saw them ie before or after Max Wolff was hired...
...don't remember him answering
