Hmm... It says that Rhapsody is exclusive to the Continental, but they didn't say that about Chalet. I wonder what vehicle will get the Chalet theme?
I wish they had pictures of Rhapsody. I loved the blue on the concept, but I have to admit the one they showed pictures of (the tan/black combo with the gray-ish wood) does look fantastic.

• Push-button start brings the available Lincoln-exclusive 3.0-liter GTDI V6 engine to life, offering a projected 400 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque for easy and smooth acceleration

• When equipped with th e3.0-liter GTDI V6 engine, the Dynamic Torque Vectoring system automatically adjusts torque between the left and right wheels on the rear axle of the all-wheel-drive system to aid cornering and provide con dent handling and stability – especially in tight turns

Lincoln Drive Control allows the driver to choose among three suspension settings, normal, comfort and sport. Advanced sensors in the continuously controlled damping system monitor the road 23,000 times per second and automatically adjust to provide a smooth and comfortable ride

Auto Hold keeps the vehicle at a complete stop without having to hold your foot on the brake; this helps make driving a bit easier in heavy stop and go traffic

Lincoln’s new flagship welcomes drivers with a brand-exclusive lighting sequence. As the driver approaches the car with the key, LED signature lighting in the lower front fascia and taillamps subtly engages, while signature lighting in the headlamps awakens in a fluid motion. Lincoln mat lights then brighten the pavement around the front doors, helping show any hazards, while select interior lights warmly illuminate the cabin.

That's what it looks like. The 3.0L V6 with 400/400 is 'available'.

I also don't see any mention of transmission. It's got to offer the new 9-speed, if Raptor can offer the new 10-speed.

• Available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality automatically can slow the new Continental, resuming higher speeds when traffic clears and activating the brakes automatically to bring it to a complete stop if the driver fails to apply brakes in time.

Really happy with how this turned out. We can't forget this will be starting the $45k range, and I think that it looks spectacular for that class, and will compete well with cars a class above it.
It looks like there will many upgrade packages. The base model won't get the 3.0: V6 with 400hp or AWD, so it could very well start at $50k+ but be optioned well into the $70k+ range.

There'll be a base powertrain. As we've discussed previously , likely either the 2.3 (MKC) or the 2.7 (MKX).

Availability is 'late Summer 2016' so we are looking at April/May/June or July/Aug at the latest. And maybe Oct for China.
