2017 Lincoln MKZ and MKZ Hybrid First Drive

Want to be a luxury brand these days? Better get in line. Just like every automaker has felt the need to dive head-first into the crossover pool, so goes the desire to push the features needle into the premium red-zone regardless of how affordable a vehicle's starting price might be. Bravely into this murky environment goes the 2017 Lincoln MKZ mid-size sedan, its moxie reinforced by both a redesign and an attitude adjustment under the hood aimed at grabbing the attention at previously-indifferent high end shoppers.

Lincoln Navigator Concept says gullwing doors are “quiet luxury”

Gullwing doors, an imposing on-road presence, and a brand new powertrain... no, not the Tesla Model X, but Lincoln's astonishingly outlandish Navigator Concept.

2017 Lincoln Continental gives classic name to modern luxury

It's a name with history, so Lincoln has a lot to live up to with the 2017 Continental. Revealed at the NAIAS 2016, the classic badge has a brand new car, with Lincoln hoping its vision of "quiet luxury" chimes with drivers. This is no humble ambition, either, with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the Continental's sights.

Lincoln’s 2017 MKZ scales up luxe and glitz with 400HP V6

Lincoln has unveiled the 2017 MKZ, its latest luxury sedan, throwing in the company's latest design language, a new engine, and a better-equipped interior. It's an important model for Lincoln, too, the best-selling car in the company's current line-up. It's also a solid hybrid seller, with around 30-percent of all MKZ's having a combined gas-electric powertrain.

Devil in the Details: Up close with Lincoln’s Continental Concept

Devil in the Details: Up close with Lincoln’s Continental Concept

When you're resurrecting a name most associated with pampered land-yachts of the 60s and 70s, you can either fight it or - as Lincoln has with the new Continental Concept - embrace it, shag pile and all. A vision in navy blue and chrome, the meaty sedan previews, so the Lincoln Motor Company says, next year's production Continental, undoubtedly shedding some of the more outlandish features in favor of commercial viability. That'll be a shame, though, since as I discovered at the New York Auto Show today, what the Continental Concept excels at is detailing.

Lincoln Continental Concept quietly sneaks in luxury

Lincoln Continental Concept quietly sneaks in luxury

While others make a great noise about their latest, greatest, and most luxurious, Lincoln is of the opposite mindset. It believes that luxury isn't loud, obnoxious, or in your face but one that is quietly just that: luxurious. That is the statement and the gamble that the car maker is willing to make with the return of the Lincoln Continental, not as a final version but as a concept preview of what is to come. Somewhat ironically, due to the name's history, the revelation is causing some noise in the automobile world.

It's also an opportunity for Lincoln to throw tech at its high-end SUV, with a range of semi-autonomous parking aids, pop-out cameras, and more.

Ford recalling cars over poor start button location

Ford recalling cars over poor start button location

Many modern cars have a modern design twist, eschewing the levers and gear shifts from days gone by in favor of touchscreens and buttons. Too many ambiguous buttons can confuse anyone given enough time, however, and it only takes one wrong push to do something you really, really didn't intend to do -- like sending a moving car to a sudden screeching halt. Such is a problem being experienced by some 2015 Lincoln MKC owners, who have complained that a poorly located start button means potentially dangerous mistakes are happening.

New McConaughey Lincoln Ads prepped for bowl games

This week we're getting a sneak peek - a full viewing, in this case - at a set of Lincoln MKZ video spots with Matthew McConaughey. The first set of ad spots Lincoln did with McConaughey became so infamous that they were parodied on Saturday Night Live (SNL). Now Lincoln is back with McConaughey for a couple more - complete with the same attitude and extremely strange timbre that made the first set seem so very odd. The MKV Hybrid midsize sedan also makes an appearance.
