Lincoln 2017 Model Overview

Lincoln pushes the reset button…again. This time, it is pinning its hopes on a new front styling treatment, first debuting on the company’s cars. Lincoln also resurrects the storied Continental nameplate for 2017, affixed to the full-size replacement for the cancelled MKS, and gives the MKZ a substantial mid-life refresh. Both the Continental and the MKZ are available with a new twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter V-6 engine that is exclusive to Lincoln.
