yeah they could have picked another color but the concept is stunning!
I'd say the overall look of the exterior is about there (though I think it'll actually benefit from the concept to production transition. The interior I'd say the dash shape is largely what we'll see in a production version (I too am a little disappointed by the tablet-style nav screen), though obviously toned down.So ... the doors, the steps, the dash, the steering wheel, the closet .... are e expecting this to be a bit more divorced from production that Continental?
Anyone cares to wager a bet?
Yeah, the gullwing doors aren't production. The steps, I highly doubt too, as they fold out of the bottom 1/3 of the gullwing door. We'll see normal doors and a single step like the current model has.It has been said 90% production ready.
I imagine the Gull Wing doors will go. The steps, I don't know. The "terrain management" type of system was suspected, but is a lot more sophisticated than on the Explorer.
Love the sides and roof line. I am sure the Grille looks less "heavy" in person, which is the same on the Continental.
I too am disappointed, I don't really dig the "Contientalfied" styling. And I think the concept should have been more in line with the Contiental concept which was more true to earth. I also agree that the Gator should feature a V8, that's a personal preference but a preference I associate with genuine luxury vehiclesPersonally, I'm disappointed.... I don't know maybe it'll grow on me, but I'm not a fan going so mainstream..... I also am disappointed it has the same engine with a higher tune..... Wanted a V8 option..... It's going back like the old days where you can tell this will be extremely watered down in production form.... That interior will never happen, nor those side steps..... Really wished big here....

A V8 has no benefit over this engine, none, zip, nada. Even the awesome GM 6.2 in the Escalade makes it's power at higher revs, the 3.5T is a low end monster, perfect for big, heavy vehicles.Sounds like all you've got a problem with is the engine. Which is silly as a V8 holds basically no benefit over the 3.5TT.
I like the concept better than the Ranger Rover myself, but yes, I'm beginning to wonder when, if ever Lincoln will show an original design.
Ooooff I see a very divided thread coming up.
Few notes I have taken away so far and all my opinion.
I am glad to see the full width tail light is still there
Nice to see blue on the interior again
Tablet style nav screen (they can integrate a large screen into the dash and not make it look cheap, see the S Class)
Grille might be a tad bit too large
Unfortunately we don't even know squat going forward with this because this is a really over the top concept. The interior will look very different IMO.
No idea on powertrain all they say is 400 HP and I can sympathize with wanting a V8 since that is a status symbol HOWEVER going back to a V8 at this point may seem like a step back no? Should there be a higher HP model though?
I am getting a very strong Range Rover vibe see below:
