Lincoln Bringing the Continental Back
Lincoln’s Continental was considered the pinnacle of luxury vehicles during the 1950s and 1960s, and had been the choice ride of celebrities and American presidents alike, from Elvis Presley and Babe Ruth to Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy. Unfortunately, Lincoln had temporarily ceased production of new Continental models in 2002. That is, until today, when the Lincoln brand unveiled its concept of the 2017 Continental during this year’s New York Auto Show.
Power and Style
Following today’s trend of power and style, the 2017 Lincoln boasts all the hallmarks of a world class luxury sedan, with a simple yet elegantly sleek design. Yet don’t let the simple design deceive you from the power it packs under the hood. The new Continental is powered with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 EcoBoost Engine, and though Lincoln remains tight-lipped about its actual power, experts estimate that it could reach to at least 400-horsepower.
The new Continental brings back all the elements of a 1970s luxury sedan, while adding a modern spin on the car. Its classy past-meets-future-style interior will definitely entice Lincoln fans into considering driving their own Continental, and enjoying its amazing features.
The plan for the new Continental, however, is more than just a concept. It has been given the green light to begin production, and you should expect to see this revamped and powered model of the Continental among Lincoln dealerships beginning next year.
