2017 Lincoln Continental Exterior and Interior
All current Lincolns are considerably limited by Ford’s latest CD4 platform, most notably in drivetrain department, as all models should be front-wheel or all-wheel driven which leaves no space for good old rear-wheel drive. Moreover, Lincoln’s present styling is flashy, while Continental was always represented as steady, grown-up vehicle with standard design. Suicide doors as seen in concept are additionally a no-show for next generation of Continentals. If it turns into a new flagship sedan of Ford’s luxurious lineup, 2017 Lincoln Continental will certainly be different than current models, and might inspire all-new generation of automobiles.

Just like MKS, Continental will provide leather seat upholstery and natural wood veneers for refined look.

It’s going to also be fitted with all necessary safety features and more advanced ones. Which means lane-keeping assist and lane-departure warning might be available along with active park assist and adaptive cruise control.
