2016 Lincoln MKX – Road Test

Road Test: 2016 Lincoln MKX, Iain Shankland, Road-Test.orgEvery now and then there’s a mix-up when I go to pick up my test vehicle. It happens rarely, but sometimes I go to get one vehicle, but end up with a completely different one. Such was the case with the Lincoln MKX. We’ll call this a happy accident, because there’s an extremely slim possibility (ok, ZERO) that I’d have taken the time to book one for a week – but I’d have missed out on one fantastic vehicle.

Introducing The 2016 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL Concept

Elegant, effortlessly powerful and serene, the Lincoln Continental Concept signals the future of quiet luxury and the all-new full-size sedan coming next year.

“Luxury at its best is about simplifying and quietly exceeding expectations, rather than being the loudest statement on the road,” said Mark Fields, Ford Motor Company president and CEO. “The Continental Concept showcases the promise of quiet luxury from Lincoln going forward. It also is a strong indication of what’s to come next year as we introduce our new Lincoln Continental full-size luxury sedan.”

2014 Lincoln MKZ 3.7L AWD – Road Test

Road-Test.org, Lincoln, Flagworld.com/roadtestsBased on the same platform as the Fusion, the Lincoln MKZ is night-and-day different. With Lincoln’s Concierge Service thrown in – what’s not to love? The grill is interesting and according to Lincoln designers it’s supposed to evoke the look of ‘ a bird’s wings’ I suppose they’ve accomplished that. For what I used to consider an “older” guy’s car, I have to report – THIS Lincoln is not your father’s car, and I think if Ford could get more people to drive this one, they’d make some serious in-roads on the mid-size luxury car market. Ford recently announced they were ploughing $5 billion into making Lincoln a true player in the near-luxury and luxury market. Continue reading

Road-Test Special: Lincoln MKS & MKT – 2013

New 2013 Lincoln MKS and MKT

Road-Test.orgRoad-Test.orgNew technologies on the 2013 Lincoln MKS and MKT deliver better handling, more power, and improved fuel economy along with more refinement and new technologies that help drivers reduce accident risks as well as providing an even more engaging driving experience – important new reasons to consider Lincoln’s newest vehicles.

The 2013 Lincoln MKS and MKT are unlike anything you’ll ever have driven in the past from Ford’s luxury division. Continue reading
