Lincoln recently unveiled the upcoming 2017 Lincoln Continental to the public as part of the brand’s attempts to reinvigorate its lineup with more advanced and luxurious vehicles that appeal to older and younger consumers alike. With all the serene luxury of a car under the Lincoln name and the spacious comforts of a full-size sedan, the new Lincoln Continental may still be in preproduction, but it’s capturing the attention of industry insiders and potential buyers in a big way.
The exterior of the Lincoln Continental has a sleek, refined profile with a new grille piece and the company’s signature full-width taillamp, all with chrome accents to give the vehicle the upscale feel it deserves. A choice between an EcoBoost engine and a powerful Twin-Turbocharged V6 lets drivers focus on either efficiency or performance, though neither engine is lacking in either department.
The 2017 Lincoln Continental concept promises a high-end interior as well, with the Perfect Position driver’s seat that allows for 30-way adjustments, plus the voice-activated, hands-free SYNC 3 system and an available 19-speaker Revel audio system. Wood accents and leather upholstery go above and beyond to deliver refinement that also goes above and beyond.
The Lincoln Continental concept is still just a concept for the moment, though the brand promises the production model will go on sale sometime late 2016. Until then, you can put the upcoming Continental on your wish list and daydream about its smooth, agile handling, 400-HP engine, and high-class amenities.
