2017 Lincoln Continental: This Is It

Let the 2016 Detroit Auto Show leaks commence! First up is Lincoln, with this admittedly very grainy, low-res photo of the production 2017 Lincoln Continental making the rounds on Ford Inside News. How’d it turn out?

That’s hard to say going from this craptastic photo alone. But it’s definitely in keeping with the outlandish concept, pictured below, although the new proportions definitely seem to be more Ford than Bentley.


The forums say that picture might be of a lower-end model, so we may expect a jazzier Continental closer to the show.

We’re expecting Lincoln’s new flagship sedan to have a new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 packing 400 horsepower and all-wheel drive. Some photos of the interior, also much less outlandish than the superluxe concept, have also caught the lenses of spy photographers.


More on this as we get it. What do you think so far?
