Per the timeline 2b2 posted the 2018 MKC is a redesign whereas the 2019 MKX is a refresh and the 2019 MKZ is a redesign. Given that, if accurate, it'll be the next gen car, not a MCE.Honestly it will probably just be a refresh to put the new grille on it so no concept unless it will be on a new platform.
I really really hope not, these SUV "coupes" have to be the ugliest vehicles ever made.With this Lincoln Coupe rumor making rounds again, does anyone think that the usual vision of a Coupe is not the usual Coupe style vehicle but the new Coupe such as the new MB GLE Coupe
there's speculation about other/more models in the MissionWith this Lincoln Coupe rumor making rounds again, does anyone think that the usual vision of a Coupe is not the usual Coupe style vehicle but the new Coupe such as the new MB GLE CoupeHas there been any speculation as to whether Lincoln will add vehicles to the portfolio besides what there already is (excluding Lincstang)? As it stands we are at 6 vehicles, is there room for more or a market for more?
MKT-Aviator (this being a direct replacement)
but without going into ALL of them // for just the STARstang(s)2b2-in-STARstang-thread said:
I don't know if we'll see it this year, but for sure next year if it doesn't surprise us with a thinly-veiled "concept" this year. Remember, they have the production Navigator to reveal this year too.....though I suppose they did surprise us with the MKZ refresh's debut before production Conti, so it's possible!So if the above plays out we can expect to see a concept for the next generation MKC this auto show season?
MKC will skip a refresh and go straight for a redesign. This is because it launched so late in Escape/C2's lifecycle. The current escape debuted for 2013, and got a refresh for 2017, replacement in 2019 (4 years pre-refresh + 2 years post-refresh for a 6 year total cycle), whereas MKC debuted for 2015 and will also be redesigned for 2019MY, so it'll just go 4 years with the current look and be replaced by the Conti-esque styled model on the new C3 platform.Honestly it will probably just be a refresh to put the new grille on it so no concept unless it will be on a new platform.
a FORD eStang I don't see for 10 years or more (gotta kill off us boomers first)This is how I see the Lincoln line-up panning out....
Aviator | Aviator Sport
Navigator | Navigator L
New C-Segment Sedan ... (Gas?) Hybrid and Plug-In and Electric to compete with Model 3)
New (RWD)MKZ | New (RWD)MKZ Coupe (both share modified architecture with New Electrified Mustang)
New New (RWD)Continental (Gas, PHEV or EV)
New (RWD)Large Sedan (Gas or PHEV)
years&years ago had a convo elsewhere about Conti-siblings...I do think there is room to expand the lineup.
1. I would love to see a Continental Mark 9 Coupe, with a roof line similar (not exact) to the Rolls Wraith...
