Lincoln Nautilus — Improving on the MKX

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Lincoln has decided to scrap its decade-old decision to slap letters on most of its vehicles, which has been confusing since the day we heard the short-lived mid-sized Zephyr sedan was going to become the MKZ. Fortunately, the former mid-sized MKX crossover has been redesigned for 2019 and becomes the Nautilus.

Lincoln Navigator — New SUV luxury

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

It's been 10 years since Lincoln built an all-new Navigator so the 2018 model was long overdue. And it has been an instant hit. The new iteration puts Lincoln back in the game with such stalwart full-sized SUV players as BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac and Lexus. And it has definitely leveled the playing field when it comes to body-on-frame SUVs.

Lincoln Continental — A new take on American luxury

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Continental is a storied name in Lincoln history. It conjures up thoughts of Edsel Ford's first long-hood short deck creation in 1939, the huge and elegant Mark II coupes of the mid-50s, and the intoxicating four-door hardtops and convertibles with their suicide doors of the early '60s.

2017 Lincoln Continental



INDIANAPOLIS — The Lincoln Continental is not just any car — it’s Edsel Ford’s car.  It’s also President Kennedy’s, Elvis Presley’s, James Brown’s, Frank Lloyd Wright’s, and if Lincoln’s ads are to be believed, Matthew McConaughey’s car.  It’s appeared in movies as diverse as Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, American Hustle, The Jazz Singer, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, The Avengers, and The Normal Heart.  It’s not a car; it’s an icon indivisible from the automaker that builds it.

Lincoln MKX — An impressive crossover

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The newly named Lincoln Motor Car Company came stumbling out of the blocks in 2013 with an all-new MKZ mid-sized sedan that missed the mark. Lincoln got it right a year later with its second all-new product, the MKC compact crossover. Although based on the Ford Escape, we felt Lincoln had "escaped" the rebadged feeling with a solid upscale vehicle. The MKC delivers the goods in styling, interior comfort and driving dynamics.

Lincoln Navigator — Updated styling, more power, new features

By David Finkelstein

It's big, brawny, has a commanding footprint, and is quite purposeful. I'm describing the 2015 Lincoln Navigator “full-size” sport utility vehicle. With three-row seating and overwhelming amounts of cargo carrying capabilities, you can travel in total luxury inside a whisper-quiet cabin.

Lincoln Navigator — Now with EcoBoost

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Lincoln will spend great gobs of money to the tune of billions of dollars over the next few years to completely revitalize its lineup with the goal of once again becoming competitive with the luxury nameplates of the world including the world of large body-on-frame sport utility vehicles.

Lincoln MKC — Getting it right

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

A couple of years ago the new Lincoln MKZ mid-sized sedan was touted by parent company Ford as the new face of Lincoln, the first of a series of products that would put the fading luxury brand back into the forefront. We agree the MKZ is a decent entry-level luxury vehicle. But we were disappointed at how many corners Lincoln cut particularly in interior quality, craftsmanship and fit and finish. It was clear to us that the MKZ did not effectively escape the badge engineering of the past.

2015 Lincoln MKC



INDIANAPOLI
S — Hitting the sweet spot of any automotive segment on the first try is like hitting your first club at Pebble Beach and seeing nothing but a white dot tickling a flag. By being named “Crossover Utility Vehicle of Texas” by the Texas Auto Writers Association in October, that’s exactly what happened to Lincoln’s new MKC.

Lincoln MKZ — A ground-rule double

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

We waited patiently for a couple of months to get our hands on the all-new 2013 Lincoln MKZ mid-sized entry-level luxury car. Lincoln's hype over what has been proclaimed the first all-new car of the newly named Lincoln Motor Company and the foundation of what promises to be a reinvigorated lineup that will bring the brand back on equal footing with such competitors as Cadillac, Lexus and Mercedes raised our anticipation level.
