2015 Lincoln Continental
The Continental name was used several times by Ford’s luxury division Lincoln. In the latest period, between 1981 and 2002, it was a four-door luxury sedan. At the beginning, it was well accepted but in last few years sales were low, so production was stopped. Since this model name came back for few times, there is a possibility to come back again. This sound reasonable, especially if you consider that company prepares new model. Many journalists already gave it name 2015 Continental.
2015 Lincoln Continental specs
Most of the details are still unknown but it is expected that 2015 Lincoln Continental will be a large luxury sedan. It will be based on some of the Ford’s models such as Fusion. It will ride on the same CD4 platform, but it is possible that there will be a longer-wheelbase version too, especially if we consider that new model will be probably offered for the Chinese market too. This platform also means front-wheels drive, which could be a little bit of disappointment for someone. When it is about cars look, there are only some sketches on the internet but one thing is for sure. If 2015 Lincoln Continental come, it will be a flagship model, so we expect completely new design, with the style that will be later use for other models of Lincoln. Same thing is expected inside. There should be completely new cabin, with extremely stylish look and plenty of luxury and hi-tech features.
