Lincolns Growth...

I can't tell you how glad I am to finally see someone getting serious about Lincoln...

Lincoln Confirms Next MKX And MKS Replacement Plus Two New Cars

Quote:
Additionally, Ford plans to add two new entries to the Lincoln lineup by 2020, offering customers a wider range of luxury offerings. Itís not clear what these two new entries will be. One possibility is simply a replacement for the Navigator, although if Ford is talking two completely new entries we could see a new compact sedan join the lineup and possibly the oft-rumored Mustang-based model. Around $2.5 billion will be spent to fund the development of these new models.

I saw that as well. I think the compact sedan is the most desperately needed if they want to lower their average buyer age. Throw in the same engine options as the MKC and it could be quite compelling.

They also need to standardize the lineup around the aesthetics of the MKC/MKZ and figure out what the heck to do with the Navigator.

A compact sedan would be a great move. The Mustang based one has great potential if they make it a flagship model. I think that the MKX needs to be redone but I'm pretty sure that is on their to do list. I don't see a problem with the Navigator. The last facelift was nice, and there is only so much you can do with those huge SUVs.

It would.

After seeing the success of the Audi A3 sedan, decent success of the CLA and growing interest in the Chrysler 200... i see potential for lincoln to fit into it all, hopefully they do. The new MKZ seem to have been received well by the lincoln community and others.

I think that the new grille would look nice on a compact sedan. I think that the design language would take really well to that size. I'm thinking that it would be about the same size of the Buick Regal.

The Buick regal is still a big car, that is basically an MKZ competitor.

They would need to go smaller, like Acura ILX smaller.

Exactly, it'd be an IS250, CLA, ILX, etc. competitor. Basically the smallest sedan class. Smaller than that and they are either coupes or starting to morph into hatchbacks.

On a completely different note, Cadillac naming is going to get more Lincoln-y. Sedans will be CT# and crossovers XT#, except of course the only vehicle with any recognition to its name will remain the Escalade, just like the Navigator.
