This Lincoln Concept Is A Joke, But Maybe It Shouldn't Be

We got this from an anonymous source, stuck to the Jalopnik HQ trailer door with a wad of nicotine gum. It's supposedly a picture of the upcoming Lincoln MKZ Mark II, and it's clearly supposed to be a ridiculous amalgam of old Lincoln design cues. The trouble is, I'm not so sure it's such a terrible idea. » 10/27/14 2:10pm 10/27/14 2:10pm

Lincoln Is Trying To Get Its Shit Together With $2.5 Billion Investment

Lincoln is a little hard to explain these days. Despite the strongest Ford lineup in a long, long time, their luxury brand is kind of languishing in the product department.
