Re: F-L 2018my OrderGuides (finally starting)

I see the Flex lost the two-toned roof options and DVD headrests. When the only changes are things they remove then you know the end is pretty close.

Lincoln gets a new Iced Mocha Metallic color although I wish Lincoln would expand its color selection like Audi. I am looking for something like Tuxedo Black, a black metallic is simply easier to live with and looks more striking with curved sheetmetal.

That's one of Flex's best design features, IMO. Sad to see it go.

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

Re: F-L 2018my OrderGuides (finally starting)

There are a couple features I don't see listed on the 2018 Navigator Fleet Preview Guide:

Continuously Controlled Dampening (CCD). I don't this on the Lincoln website either.

Electric reclining 3rd-row seat, but I do see the electric power fold feature.

If Expy has it, Navigator will have it.

Realistically I think the 2018 Continental will get small stuff, like the option of those rear screens the 2018 Navigator debuted (same seat shell, so seems a sure thing!)
I also expect the Black Label theme choices will lose one and gain another...my guess is lose Thoroughbred and gain Destination from new Navigator.

Guessing/wishing more, I'd say the 2018 MKZ will also loose Thoroughbred and gain Rhapsody...I think Lincoln is owning blue right now!

For the 2018 MKX, hope it gets the 3.0 GTDI as a new top engine. For BL, I think they will drop Thoroughbred and gain either Vineyard or Destination....or Yacht Club?! (Would be awesome!)

For the 2018 MKC, I'd guess that BL will drop Center Stage and pick up one either Vineyard or Destination..?


Anyone have any insight on the 9-speed for the Lincoln FWD platforms. MKZ and Continental should have this...ASAP.

We probably won't see anything until 2019 at the earliest.

The 9 speed version currently used in GM products will not withstand the torque of the turbo V6s. There may be a more robust version being developed but we haven't seen it yet. Ford has been very closed-lipped about the 9 speed.

I expected the 4 cylinder Fusions, MKZs and Edges to get the 9 speed first and I thought maybe it would be for the 2018 model year but apparently not.

10 GM models to get 9-speed automatic by end of '17

General Motors plans to use the gearbox in 10 models across its brands by the end of next year. GM executives said at a media event last week here that the transmission adds refinement over the outgoing six- and eight-speeds, giving vehicles a premium feel.
