I can't speak for Samesun but the "issues" the Europeans have do not prevent them from selling a huge amount of vehicles. Lincoln has yet to sell a huge amount of vehicles so I guess that they could be said to be behind "the leaders." Lincoln is upping their game especially with their SUV/CUVs but they haven't caught up with "the leaders" yet.Who do you consider to be the leaders? Serious question. Because the Europeans do some things better, but they have issues the automotive media tends to gloss over.
I, for one, hope that Lincoln is working on developing compelling new models. Nautilus is a refresh albeit a very important one (new face and name). I'm encouraged that perhaps the next generation of cars will be significant upgrades over present offerings especially as S650 and CD6 should be available.
