New 2017 Lincoln Continental at Ames Ford Lincoln for Ames, IA

The 2017 Lincoln Continental is back and is prepared to be better than ever. It made a surprise debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show and is now ready for its major release. It is positioned as a quiet, elegant and spacious sedan which will carrier the Lincoln banner going forward starting in the fall of 2016. Some very popular descriptive words for the new face of the brand are things like: serenity, effortless power and quiet luxury. The Continental name has not been used since the year 2002 but it is now on the way back and is ready to rock and roll.

Under the Continental's Hood

The new powertrain equipment includes a 3.0-liter V-6 motor that is twin-turbocharged along with creating 400 horsepower and a staggering 400 lb.-ft. of torque. Other options include a 3.7-liter V-6 that is aspirated naturally and a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 which are both from the MKX equipment choices. These engines churn out 303 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. of torque for the larger 3.7-liter and 325 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. There will be three drive modes called Comfort, Normal and Sport along with a automatic transmission using 6-speeds. Each of the preset modes adjusts shock absorber settings, transmission shift points, and steering effort. The all-wheel drive system, standard with the 3.0-liter engine, optional with the other two, includes torque vectoring.

Design of Lincoln Continental

The new Continental is plush on the inside and gets even more premium as you move through the different levels that are offered. These editions are Premier, Select, Reserve and Black Label. The different trim levels provide different coloring schemes, steering wheel wraps, aromatic leather seating and much more are designed perfectly to fit aesthetically and functionally into this new vehicle. Other available luxury touches include a driver’s seat with individually adjustable thigh supports and 30-way adjustability; heated and cooled rear seats that can recline in the outboard positions and include a massage function; adaptive steering and a great sound system that is perfect for pumping the jams in any conditions. There is also great technology including a new infotainment system and the new Sync3 system coupled with an entertainment system in the backseat. Active noise cancellation is also prominently featured giving more peace and quiet from the outside world. The interior lights illuminate the cabin very well and when the driver comes closer to the vehicle with the fob the interior lights come on. The driver has only to touch a button for the doors to open--and they'll fasten themselves shut as well once the driver pulls them closed. It's all in the service of "effortless" use by the owner. The new LED lights are plentiful on board the Continental they are at the bottom of the front and in the taillights as wells. There are also lights that help to illuminate the pavement or ground area around each of the front doors.
