This year on New York Car Show we could see 2017 Lincoln Continental for the first time, only few days after it was officially announced. We had to wait many years for the new Continental and finally it is coming to the market. This luxury sedan is one of the most anticipated Ford’s in this year and according to the first reviews they won’t let us down. It is obvious designers had a lot of work and they had to take extra mile to create such vehicle. Muscular, powerful and attractive are the first three words that comes to your mind when you take a look at the new Lincoln Continental 2017. We are completely sure you will absolutely love this car.
2017 Lincoln Continental interior
Major changes can be seen in this field. If you think it takes after Audi you won’t be completely wrong. Whole car, especially rear end, is similar to some Audi models. 21-inch aluminum wheelbase gives new 2017 Lincoln Continental modernized look along with new laser beams and LED matrix headlights. Two exhaust pipes are placed at the back with slightly different taillights. SPD SmartGlass is new technology in the car industry which provides enough light but it can also get darken with simple touch on the dashboard. In addition car has golden lighting which is useful during the night ride. Front seats can easily be moved so the passengers at the back can have more space. Revel Ultima premium audio system is installed which will bring listening music to a higher level.
Lincoln Continental 2017 specs
There are several predictions what will be under the hood but it is most likely new Lincoln Continental 2017 will have 3.0-liter six-cylinder EcoBoost as a base engine. This engine has proved itself as a powerful and reliable and even though there are no exact figures we can say it won’t develop under 350 horsepower. Normal, comfort and sport driving mode are available as a choice during the drive. All-wheel drive system which was expected comes with six-speed automatic transmission system. Probably, offer of the engines will expand up to three but twelve-cylinder cannot be expected. Twelve-cylinder engine for such luxurious sedan would be too much.
2017 Lincoln Continental price and release date
Before the release we will probably be able to see the new Lincoln Continental 2017 on several car shows. The release date is scheduled for the beginning of the 2016. Although, price is not officially determined this car surely won’t be for those with shallow pockets. Pricing will start around $60,000 which in our opinion is not too much considering all characteristics that new 2017 Lincoln Continental poses.
