Lincoln exposed the front-end of what is believed to be the new MKZ...but I believe this is a different vehicle.

I took some screen grabs from the video.

Yes, very interesting. The MKZ prototypes have had the MKS-type grille...so this is probably a different vehicle since it also looks a bit narrower and chunkier. I'm guessing this is an SUV.

Looks like the front end to the Chrysler 200.

Like I've said before, time to kill Lincoln.

They are, unless Ford has two Fusions and one with a Lincoln grille and full-width tail-lamp.

Did you use a random car-name generator to come up with that? That makes no sense!

Headlight / Grille / Badge proportions look great, the shape of each grille opening is a beautiful wing shape. This looks more car-like to me, so I'd wager it's some form of MKZ (could the be using different grille patterns to denote hybrid, etc), but we really don't know what look they're going with the "sports crossover" so I guess this could be it... :reading:

This is definitely a more interesting and dynamic way of using the split-wing motif. I like the dimensionality and how it's integrated well with elements outside of the grille, such as the angle of the headlights and the sculpting in the hood. Excellent flow across competing textures, which takes advantage of the smaller grille elements to achieve. Overall this shows the flexibility inherent in the design so interesting things can be done to maintain the identity and progress in each new product. Nicely done Wolfe, looks like he has a clue.

I think it's the MKZ.
