    Impressive...

    Some consumers’ only experience with Lincoln is from the back seat of a chauffeur-driven airport shuttle, but the brand has been on a multiyear effort to change that. The MKS-replacing 2017 Lincoln Continental sedan is part of the plan to shift perception amongst those who might actually give a different luxury brand a change. To get their attention, Lincoln offers the Continental with three engines and a number of upscale options, and on the high-end Black Label trim, three available interior color schemes. We spent some quality time with a 400-hp, all-wheel-drive Continental to see how much of its $79,780 as-tested price tag is earned on the inside.

    That’s ignoring all of the engineering and design work that went into this car. Much more than simply a stretched Fusion.

    It is a great upgrade but with a heritage like the continental it shouls at least be on a large car platform. Chrysler could easly upgrade the 300 to a Imperial and sell it for alot less.

    And a Challenger is just a shortened 300 sedan.

    What is your point?

    I think Lincoln is finally on the right track, instead of chasing the Lux Performance German owned market. A Lincoln should be about quiet and refined comfort, a car for grown ups. Just like they used to be before they tried to be all things to all people and delluted their heritage. A rebadged Ford is not a Lincoln, this new Continental is.
