Production Lincoln Continental to Debut in Detroit



The North American International Auto Show in Detroit is one of the biggest motor shows of the year, and it begins next week. Of particular interest to us Lincoln fans will be the debut of the production Lincoln Continental.

Quote:
After rolling out two crossovers in 2014 and 2015, Lincoln will focus on sedans in 2016. It likely will use the Detroit show to unveil the production version of the Continental, which has changed little from the concept car Lincoln debuted last spring. The Continental hits dealerships this year, shortly after shipments of the freshened MKZ sedan start. Both cars feature a new, rectangular grille design in place of the split-wing look, as well as the most powerful engine ever dropped into a Lincoln.
Other cars will make their world debut as well. These include the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the redesigned Chrysler Town & Country, the Honda Ridgeline, the Lexus LC coupe, and the Chevrolet Cruze.

A full list of debuts can be found through the link below.

Here's the Lincoln Continental in its production form, apparently, as it has shown up on Internet before its actual reveal in Detroit next week. Notice that it does have projector headlights instead of LED headlights, which means that it could be a lower-end model.

The Continental Concept is stunning....just beautiful looking ride,compared to the one above which is at best mundane and basic... also the blue is just incredible!

Definitely looks MUCH better in blue. Black will look awesome too. That car just doesn't lend itself to a light color IMO. The lighting and other contrasts need a dark color.

Don't think white or silver (which most people will probably choose) will look half as good

Sure. I took some of the concept at the NY show last spring. It was so packed though we couldn't get anywhere near it nor were we able to see the inside. Take some photos of the front with the symbol lighted and some close ups of the cool headlights please, they looked like Lincoln symbols kind of...
