Let's Hijack Lincoln's Terrible Jimmy Fallon Ad And Actually Talk About…

Oh, Lincoln. Lincoln, Lincoln, Lincoln. Of the eight car companies named for presidents, you're still one of the two remaining (and related to, since the other is Ford), but I'm really afraid for your future. To many of us watching, it's looks like you've just sat down to watch Our American Cousin in Ford's Theater, if … » 12/05/12 4:00pm 12/05/12 4:00pm

Chief Designer Of Lincoln MKZ Explains Why It's Not A Hatch

While at the LA Auto Show I had the chance to talk to the very poetically-named Solomon Song, lead designer of the Lincoln MKZ. I'll admit that we at Jalopnik haven't had the most confidence in Lincoln as of late, but I did find Song engaging, easy to talk to, and very forthright about the car he's designed, and the… » 12/03/12 2:20pm 12/03/12 2:20pm

The MKZ Concept Will Not Save Lincoln

I was certain when I sat down at the Lincoln press conference this morning I'd focus on the fact that the car looks like John Wilkes Booth. And then I saw the mimosa station and realized I was wrong. The story here is Lincoln is so desperate to pretend they're a luxury manufacturer they've got a mimosa station. And a… » 1/10/12 9:20am 1/10/12 9:20am

2010 Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan, Lincoln MKZ: Design, Dissected

In case you may have missed it back in 2006, Ford released a trio of entries into the uber-boring mid-size sedan category. The just-right-sized triplets were built with the intention of targeting the best in the appliance segment. Alas, sales fell well short of the leaders of the pack — which is why you may not… » 11/26/08 1:30pm 11/26/08 1:30pm

2010 Lincoln MKZ: Fusion Plus A Newish Nose

Since platform pals the 2010 Ford Fusion » 11/19/08 3:00pm 11/19/08 3:00pm and get matching updates, it stands to reason their higher class sibling the 2010 Lincoln MKZ would be getting a visit from Ford's refresh fairies and these are the results. The MKZ gets Lincoln MKS in its Fusion with an appropriation of the new dual-nostril, waterfalling '38…

A Super Lincoln Zephyr? Shouldn't That Be An MKZ?

Here are some weird spy photos of a hot-rodded Lincoln Zephyr lurking around Dearborn. That's right, a Zephyr and not an MKZ — so what does it mean? This could be an old mule, or perhaps cost cutting efforts at Ford are forcing reuse of old cars they've got laying around. Maybe they've decided to go old-school and drop … » 10/31/08 5:40pm 10/31/08 5:40pm

Is The Dream Dead, Like A Zephyr Product Reference Guide?

Just in case you didn't get enough of the firearm-powered fist full o' Lincoln dreaminess we showed earlier, and because I thought a couple of folks might like the backstory on the shot-up Lincoln Zephyr product reference guide — I've put together a little home movie to tell the tale — and to finally put the…

Of course, any event starting with the promise of shooting live ammunition and ends with martini's can't be all bad, and Lincoln's event to promote the latest ad campaign for FoMoCo's luxe nameplate didn't disappoint. Reilly Brennan, editor of the online-only magazine of the Road which is always Winding, and I had the… » 11/17/06 11:01am 11/17/06 11:01am

Lincoln Wants A Jalopnik Editor To Dream A Little Dream Of Them

I'm down in Dearborn today for an interesting little marketing event sponsored by the folks at FoMoCo for the Lincoln brand. It's an extension of their "Dreams" campaign — an attempt to link the Lincoln brand to one of three luxe segments Lincoln believes corresponds most closely with it's brand image. The segments… » 11/16/06 11:28am 11/16/06 11:28am
