After thirteen years, Lincoln is bringing back the Continental nameplate in a big way. The production version was unveiled in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year and aims to replace the outgoing MKS sedan. Spotted in the wild by TFL fans with a sharp eyes is the 2017 Lincoln Continental, which looks to be very close to final production form.
The all-new full-size luxury sedan is packed with amenities and technology, and is designed to appeal to customers in both the U.S. and China. Lincoln promises that the Continental will deliver a first-class experience thanks to a cabin that’s been crafted to be as quiet as possible.
The Continental spotted by an alert TFL reader, Duke, is powered by a new, 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine with 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Another TFL reader sent us a second set of photos of Lincoln’s new flagship sedan.
The all-new Lincoln Continental is targeted to go on sale Fall 2016 with prices likely starting around $50,000.
