Reliable Source Told Me Rear-Drive Lincoln Coupe and Sedan Coming Soon

Recommended Posts

Lincoln Mark IX sounds better to me than Continental Mark IX or Continental Zephyr.

Opinions will vary....I like the idea of the "Continental family" of cars to enhance the CUV/SUV end of the Lincoln spectrum.

Yeah, as awesome as it sounds, RWD sports luxury cars didn't get Cadillac anywhere here in the US, I'm not sure why anyone would think it would get Lincoln anywhere either. Learn from other's mistakes and move on.

I think we could see MKZ and Conti replaced by a single sedan, and that's it.

It also might be some sort of white space vehicle too..not exactly a sedan, but not a CUV either. 

Yeah I could certainly see that - a higher riding "sedan".  Also, these days "coupe" could mean something 4/5 doors - it doesn't necessarily mean a 2 door.

I get it, but you're just making it more confusing I think.

I'm sure if they go with something like this, it will be called Continental. We had discussed this before and I think the most logical strategy for Lincoln is to call all its cars Continental. The standard size Continental will replace MKZ and you can easily do a 2 door coupe version as well. The LWB version will replace the current Continental.

AFAIK (or have heard), design exercises were commissioned to re-envision the Continental more towards its original purpose: A luxurious, powerful mover for a handful of people with loads of style... as well as a "sporting" aspirational product... both to be built off of CD6. 

I think we'll be seeing the product that the MKT *should* have been with a Continental badge, and an electric "coupe" product that may just take some spotlight away from Elon (and beat Cadillac to the "electric luxury" punch, soundly).

It would be nice to see. I just wonder how far away that might be from hitting the market

Here's a question.....

 

Could this "coupe" just be Lincoln's version of the Mach E?

Whoops, nevermind, I guess the thought is these are both on CD6.

I think Lincoln's Mach E will be more of a crossover not a car.

 

I'd like to see a sportier CD sized sedan, coupe and convertible just to round out the offerings even though it won't provide big sales volume.   It will help amortize CD6 though.

THUNDERBIRD.....THUNDERBIRD.....THUNDERBIRD.....THUNDER............

It HAS been done before!

"The sixth generation Thunderbird debuted in the fall of 1971 as a 1972 model. With a 120.4-inch (3,058 mm) wheelbase, an overall length of 214 inches (5,436 mm) (growing to 225 inches (5,715 mm) by 1974), and a curb weight of 4,420 pounds (2,005 kg) (over 4,800 pounds (2,177 kg) when equipped with a 460 cu in (7.5 L) V8), it was the largest Thunderbird ever produced by Ford, sharing the assembly line with the Lincoln Continental Mark IV. "

Hopefully soon followed by a convertible!

I wish they could find enough of a market for a "coach door" 4-door 'vert. That would be a way cool car.

I'm pretty sure Continental was originally a marque--as in the Continental Mark I was a Continental, not a Lincoln--so that would not be without precedent.

Well yes and no. The original Continental was a Lincoln. When they brought it back in 1956, Continental was its own brand. It switched back to Lincoln in 61.

Interesting enough the first Zephyr was called Lincoln-Zephyr, so technically it was its own brand as well.

Actually switched back under Lincoln in 1958, as the unique Mark II was under the Continental division, but the Edsel disaster and the 1958 recession scared Ford (a newely publicity traded company at that point) into closing the Continental division. What followed were the soon to be forgotten “Marks”. Oh what could have been!

At the rate Ford starts productions after it displays them at the autoshow, this "said" vehicle would be out by 2022-2023 🙄

It's almost Toyota-like these days...

Hmm... very interesting. I hope you're correct! Then again, I don't want to get my hopes up. We've been hearing about a mysterious RWD Lincoln car for almost 10 years.

Actually, that's been the biggest disappointment in new releases this year, was the Toyota Supra..."we want a BMW sports coupe with Toyota styling" said no one, ever... And just about every blog will have those comments, where it was such a disappointment.  All those years of hype, and it was an underwhelming release.

If Lincoln has the vehicles that you mentioned in development, they're going to completely derail Cadillac (probably moreso than Tesla).

That's one of the concerns I am having about the Bronco. :( Years of rumors of its return and confirmed at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show only for it to be delayed until 2021 model year. I'm really hoping they are keeping to its roots as they say but then again, they have been disappointing with the end results before. So hopefully the Bronco will not be the Ford version of the Supra.

I really hope this is true about the next Continental as well as the 'sporting' product. Looking forward to see what comes up.

I wouldn't be at all opposed to the Continental name transitioning to some kind of coupe. It would still fit the Continental's flagship image.

I believe, but with hybrid or electric propulsion. Maybe the same hybrid propulsion as the next CD6 Mustang. Probably this sedan/coupe will come after 2021 and, until then, the electrification of the vehicles will be at a more advanced stage
