Lincoln

Lincoln Motor Company is a luxury vehicle manufacturer based in Dearborn, Michigan. The company was founded in 1917 by Henry Leland, one of the founders of Cadillac. Having sold the brand to General Motors in 1909, Leland remained a Cadillac executive until 1917, when he left after a dispute with GM. Lincoln almost went bankrupt in 1922, when it was saved by Ford, which purchased the brand in order to transform it into a luxury division, just like GM did with Cadillac. The company remained under Ford's umbrella ever since. Lincoln is often described as the company that established the "personal luxury car" segment with the introduction of the Continental in 1940. Alongside the Continental, Lincoln is also famous for nameplates like the K-Series, Capri, Premier, Town Car, and Navigator. A rival for Cadillac by tradition, Lincoln overhauled its lineup in recent years by adding more SUVs and reviving some of its older nameplates. As of 2019, the model line includes the MKZ and Continental sedans as well as the Navigator, Nautilus, Aviator, and Corsair crossovers.

2021 Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring Picture Gallery

2021 Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring Picture Gallery

We know that you’ve probably seen the Corsair before – it was released earlier this year, but new for 2020 is the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring. This Corsair itself is aimed at the younger crowd that don’t need three rows of seating and desire a little more space and now the Grand Touring trim steps in to provide even better fuel economy for those that are more green conscious.

It might not be quite as powerful as the non-hybrid, but the 2.5-liter gasoline engine and two electric motors are said to produce somewhere in the neighborhood of 266 horsepower and Lincoln is “anticipating” a range of 25 miles. AWD also comes courtesy of the electric motors as they exclusively power the rear wheels while the engine handles the duty of driving the front wheels.

In terms of appearance, the Corsair Grand Touring doesn’t stand out my way of any real unique aestetic features, so aside from the exterior badges and the ability to drive silently for a limited period of time, there’s not much else to report. However, we’ve created a full gallery and organized it into our awesome slider above and the article below. Go ahead and browse through the images to learn more about the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring.

2020 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition

2020 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition

This is a special edition model done right

Turns out, Lexus isn’t the only one that’s into revising recently released special edition models. Lincoln’s adopting a similar strategy with the return of the Continental Coach Door Edition, a blast-from-the-past special edition Continental that the luxury brand first launched last year in very limited — only 80 units were made — quantities.

This time, Lincoln is doubling up with 150 units of the 2020 Continental Coach Door Edition. The essential elements that defined last year’s Coach Door Edition will also be offered in this fresh batch of SEs. That includes the model’s undisputed highlight: the suicide doors.

The Ford-owned luxury brand is already accepting orders for the 2020 Continental Coach Door Edition. Best be quick about it because, judging by how fast the first batch of Coach Door Edition models sold out, this new batch of 150 units will sell out just as quick, maybe even quicker.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Lincoln Aviator

One could argue that Lincoln dropped the ball when it discontinued the original aviator back in 2005, just a couple of years after it was introduced to the market. If the bean counters knew then what they know now, we wouldn’t be as hyped up about the Aviator but SUVs weren’t nearly as attractive back then, and Lincoln jumped off the bandwagon when it should have remained. Be that as it may, the Aviator is back for the 2020 model year, and it brings a gorgeous design, exquisite interior materials and layout, and some high-end tech. It’s also there to give us entry to a larger Lincoln SUV without having to opt for the high-priced Navigator that’s all so often a little out of range for a lot of buyers. It’s look, however, is what really has us mesmerized – along with the fact that it changed little from concept to prototype to production model. So, we saw it fitting to pay it tribute and feature it as our wallpaper of the day. We’ve picked out our favorite and placed it below, but if you scroll a little further down, you’ll find a whole gallery of images that are just perfect for sprucing up your desktop.

2020 Lincoln Aviator

2020 Lincoln Aviator

Flying high with fresh tech and a clean look

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is a midsize luxury SUV unveiled in 2019 as a replacement for the aging Lincoln MKT. First introduced for the 2003 model year, the Lincoln Aviator was initially offered as a luxury sport utility vehicle for the mid-size segment. After failing to meet sales expectations, Lincoln axed the nameplate in 2005 after just a few years in production. Now, however, as nationwide SUV sales continue onwards into the stratosphere, the Aviator makes its triumphant second-generation return for the 2020 model year, slotting in between the Nautilus and the standard wheelbase Navigator in Lincoln’s lineup. The latest model offers elegant styling, a top-notch interior layout, oodles of comfort, the latest tech, and a super torquey hybrid engine option.

Update 8/17/2019: We’ve updated this review with information about the Lincoln Aviator’s hybrid drivetrain and new pricing information. Check out everything in our review below!

It also packs more torque than most supercars on the market

Revived in 2019 as a successor for the MKT, the Lincoln Aviator is the company’s first SUV to feature a hybrid drivetrain.

1955 Lincoln Indianapolis Concept by Carrozzeria Boano Torino

1955 Lincoln Indianapolis Concept by Carrozzeria Boano Torino

A unique Lincoln that looks as if it was designed in Area 51

The question of where to take Lincoln’s styling was top-of-mind for Ford during the mid-1950s, and the net it cast was to both the internal styling teams and one special dream car creator of Italy. Turbulent times for all the Blue Oval brands followed the market flop of their Edsel series, and Chevrolet was lighting up newsprint and auto shows with their swanky Motorama events and the original Corvette-concept of 1953.

The desire for miraculous styling direction and stunning concept cars led to all the non-GM American car brands to pair off with Italian styling houses. During this flurry of deals, Ghia signed up with Chrysler, Bertone for Packard and Carrozerria Touring with Hudson. Lincoln went with a less-renowned name of Felice Paolo to dress a rolling chassis with bespoke coupe bodywork ahead of the Turin motor show. The orange lacquer paint was barely dry on the 1955 Lincoln Indianapolis Exclusive Study by Carrozzeria Boano Torino when it was rolled onto the rotating platform of the Turin auto show.

This stunning concept car hit the auction block quite often in recent years. It changed hands in 2006, it failed to sell in 2013, and it found a new owner in 2015. Come 2019, and the Lincoln Indianapolis is set to go under the hammer at RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction on August 15 to 17.

2019 Lincoln MKC - Driven

2019 Lincoln MKC - Driven

A domestic alternative to luxury crossovers

Lincoln has updated the MKC crossover for the 2019 model year, and with this refresh, the manufacturer aims to make its smallest SUV more attractive among the many talented rivals in its segment. The pre-facelift MKC was already pretty good, although not perfect, but now Lincoln says there is even more to like about it.

We tried the top of the range, The 2019 Lincoln MKC “Black Label”, with the more powerful of the two available engines, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo. In this spec, the MKC doesn’t leave you wanting for power, presence, or luxury, but at the same time it’s not perfect and we understand why these aren’t flying out of showrooms.

It is by no means a bad way to spend around $50,000 on a posh compact SUV that also happens to be made by an American brand. In the configuration we tested it in, it’s actually quite pleasant to live with - it’s even fun on occasion, especially with the 2.3-liter engine that comes as standard with grippy all-wheel drive.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Lincoln Corsair

Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Lincoln Corsair

Lincoln’s smallest crossover is a real looker

Lincoln had to replace the old MKC with something, and this is it – the Lincoln Corsair. It’s the brand’s smallest SUV offering, and it’s based on the Ford Escape. As a matter of fact, it’s really nothing more than a rebadged, glorified Escape but that’s a conversation for another time. The name, however, holds some significance as it was used way back in the late ‘50s under the Edsel brand name. At this point, the name probably has a much better chance of surviving in the long term, and it’s the look you see here that’s going to give it the extra grunt it needs to make a damaging blow to the compact premium crossover segment. Since we like the look of the Corsair so much, we decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. Slide on down the page to see our favorite choice or go a little further to find a gallery with more great wallpaper options.

2020 Lincoln Corsair

2020 Lincoln Corsair

Replaces the MKC with new styling, better tech, and a new transmission

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair is a compact crossover and the company’s smallest SUV yet. The Corsair replaces the MKC, a crossover sold between 2014 and 2019 and also based on the Ford Escape. Unveiled at the 2019 New York Auto Show, the Corsair revived a nameplate that Ford used for the first time in 1958 for the Edsel brand. The Corsair is the third new nameplate introduced by Lincoln in the last two years following a decision to phase out its alphanumerical naming scheme.

Just like the MKC, the Corsair is based on the Ford Escape. But while the MKC was built on the old platform, the Corsair shares underpinnings with the fourth-generation, 2020 Ford Escape, also unveiled at the 2019 New York Auto Show. The redesign brings new technology and features as well as revised four-cylinder engines and eight-speed automatic transmission.

What is the Cheapest Lincoln?

To be replaced by the Corsair for the 2020 model year, the MKC is the most affordable Lincoln as of August 2019. This model retails from $33,995, almost $7,000 cheaper than the Nautilus. The MKC is also only $2,000 cheaper than the MKZ sedan.

What is the Sportiest Lincoln?

Sportiness is a rather abstract term for Lincoln as this automaker is famous for offering luxury features, not high performance. It never sold sports cars and its current lineup includes heavy sedans and crossovers only. The Continental is available with a 3.0-liter V-6 that cranks out 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, figures that make it somewhat sporty, but its 4,220-pound curb weight doesn’t help. On the other hand, the Aviator, which weighs just as much, features a hybrid drivetrain that produces 450 horsepower and more than 600 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to numbers, the Aviator is the sportiest Lincoln you can buy.

What is the Most Popular Lincoln?

With 26,241 units sold in 2018, the MKC is Lincoln’s most popular vehicle. That’s not surprising given that the MKC is the smallest and most affordable SUV from the brand. The MKC is followed by the MKZ sedan with around 19,000 units and the massive Navigator SUV with 17,839 units. Things will probably change for 2019, with the Nautilus coming strong from behind. With 16,000 units sold in the first half the year, this nameplate should end the year with at least 30,000 examples sold. This should surpass sales estimates for the MKC and the Corsair that replaces it at less than 25,000 units.

What is the Most Expensive Lincoln?

The big Navigator SUV is the Lincoln that will leave the biggest hole in your budget. The hauler starts from $73,205, a figure that places it well above any other vehicle in the lineup. Go with the Black Label trim, apparently a very popular one among Lincoln fans, and you’ll have to pay $96,395 before any other options. A fully equipped Navigator Black Label will set you back almost $110,000.

What is the Fastest Lincoln?

While no Lincoln will match the performance of a modern supercar, some of them are impressively quick given their power-to-weight ratio. Officially, the Continental sedan fitted with the 400-horsepower V-6 engine is the quickest, needing 5.4 seconds to hit 60 mph from a standing start. The range-topping Lincoln Navigator comes in second with a sprint of 5.9 seconds. However, the Lincoln Aviator might be the quickest vehicle in hybrid trim. The American brand has yet to release info, but the 494-horsepower and 630-pound-foot drivetrain might be enough to make the crossover quicker than the Continental sedan.

Are Lincoln Cars Reliable?

Although luxury vehicles fail in dependability tests due to new technology that’s bound to fail at some point, Lincoln scored high in these studies in recent years. In some studies, Lincoln was actually rated as one of the most reliable American brands, while falling behind only a handful of automakers overall. That’s also because Lincoln vehicles are mostly based on Ford products, which offers solid products overall.
