Lincoln To Kill The Continental

  Lincoln To Kill The Continental Lincoln will discontinue the Continental once the current generation has run its course, a decision that comes not two years after the upscale automaker revived the storied nameplate. The revelation comes from Ford Authority, which cites "sources intricately familiar with Ford's future product plans for its Lincoln brand." That anonymous source was unable to say why the company plans to cut the 2018 Lincoln Continental, but it's not hard to draw yet another line between the falling sales of sedans and the ever-increasing popularity of crossovers and SUVs.

The teaser doesn't tell us much about the new SUV, but we won't have long to wait.

Hot on the heels of Ford’s big announcement for a gaggle of new and updated SUVs in the next couple years comes this, a teaser for the new Lincoln Aviator. Wait, did we just say Aviator, as in the rebadged Ford Explorer that lasted all of three years and was last seen in 2005? Yes we did. Or technically, Lincoln did.

These are certainly interesting times in which we live, especially if you’re a fan of Ford’s luxury division and love sport-utility vehicles. Late last year we got a look at the restyled Lincoln Nautilus, which technically soldiers forward as the MKX with a new name. The smaller MKC also donned a similar facelift, though it wasn’t fortunate enough to receive a snazzy new title.

Here’s the plot twist: could the Aviator simply be the MKC with a new name? We don’t have any information on this new offering, save for the glimpses shown in the above video. Rumors from a few years ago suggested Lincoln was once again working on an Explorer-based Aviator, but in the SUV world a “few years ago” is borderline prehistoric. Yes, the MKC just got its new Lincoln-brand face and some fanfare at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November, but a sudden name change to an existing model isn’t new territory at Ford. Remember when the restyled-for-2008 Ford Five Hundred sedan appeared at the Detroit Auto Show? Remember a month later when the exact same car showed up in Chicago as the new Ford Taurus?

Seven Things About the New Lincoln Aviator

  Seven Things About the New Lincoln Aviator Mid-size luxury SUV preps for relaunchWhile the Aviator shown in New York this week isn't the production vehicle, but a "teaser" model intended to "preview the direction Lincoln plans to take" with the production Aviator, our time talking with the Lincoln honchos on-site indicates this teaser vehicle is a fairly accurate preview of the top-tier Black Label version of the upcoming Aviator.

For the last couple of years, you couldn't go to an American auto show without tripping over the Lincoln Navigator. But Ford's luxury brand has another new

In any event, we won’t be held in suspense for too long. The teaser says this new Aviator – whether it’s a dolled-up Explorer, a rebadged MKC, or something entirely new – will debut at the end of this month for the New York Auto Show. And in Ford's press conference this afternoon a new Lincoln SUV was mentioned as appearing at the show, so we’d hedge bets on this being the rumored Explorer-based offering.

But in this crazy climate of SUV competition, anything is possible.

2020 Lincoln MKC Replacement Spied Before 2019 Refresh Available .
The design appears to borrow heavily from the Lincoln Aviator conceptLincoln is diverting cold hard cash and the resources into its crossovers thanks to money freed up by abandoning sedans. That means we’re going to see a slew of new and refreshed products from the company that isn’t the Continental or MKZ. Spy photos appear to show Lincoln gearing up to replace the MKC – Lincoln’s Ford Escape equivalent – even before the 2019 refresh is available at dealerships, which the automaker just debuted last November. If this seems quick – you’re right.
