Riding Like a Rock Star in the New Lincoln Continental

Elegant design, serene interior, and effortless power add Calgon-take-me-away style to the brand's elegant portfolio.

You know the scene ... sought-after celebrity musician makes his way through a rambunctious crowd of screaming fans all clamoring for a close-up glimpse, a momentary touch, or perhaps a small piece of ripped-off shirt fabric. A team of security guards muscle away hoards of adoring fans while the individual at the center of all this attention makes his way into the backseat of a luxury sedan, slams the door as a barrier against the vehement noise outside, and rides away virtually unscathed in peacefully-relaxing Calgon-take-me-away style.


2017 Lincoln Continental

Now you too can find respite from the vociferous sounds of daily life and celebrate your very own rock star status with the brand new 2017 Lincoln Continental. This newest flagship addition to the brand's elegant portfolio represents the very best that Lincoln has to offer and provides personally-crafted experiences that are warmly human. With strong industry momentum and elevated client satisfaction on the uprise, the company is strategically linking technology to create quiet luxury by combining elegant design, serene interior, and effortless power.

Elegant Design


As you approach the Continental with the key fob in your pocket or purse, the car extends an embracing welcome by gradually lighting the signature headlamps with a soft glow, illuminating the one-touch electronic latches on the door handle, and projecting a mat of light onto the ground alongside the driver's door. Demonstrating a unique point of craftsmanship for the new face of Lincoln, the vehicle's distinctive mesh grille is comprised of the star logo pattern which is repeated in the headlamps resulting in a harmonious uniformity of motif. Uninterrupted visual sleekness is created by long, low character lines; broad shoulders that give a stable, planted feel; and the horizontal element of signature full-width tail lamps.

Serene Interior


The vehicle's interior is a sanctuary of comfort for both forward and rear-cabin occupants alike. Back-seat passengers have access to center-armrest controls which adjust audio levels, climate settings, seat tilt and temperature, window shades, and even the massive optional sunroof cover which opens up to reveal a panoramic view of the expansive sky above. Drivers find exceptional comfort with a 30-way perfect-position seat which was designed within the Lincoln Motor Company and boasts 30 current patents and more patents pending. Offering therapeutic massage and support for a wide range of body types, the bucket-style seats feature customizable flexibility via the multi 4-way lumbar support, upper back supports, headrest settings (including up, down, forward, and back) and independently-adjustable thigh extenders which can be easily modified mid-journey during long road trips.

Active Noise Control works toward canceling unwanted sounds in the cabin, while advanced-level acoustic-laminated glass provides a layer of sound-absorbing material in the middle of the windshield, front doors, and rear doors. The premium Revel audio system (a proprietary sub-brand within the Harman family) enhances melodies by re-adding color in each of three listening modes (stereo, onstage, and audience) when reopening a dynamic range of music otherwise compressed by .mp3 and Sirius formats.

Effortless Power


Executing an ultra-smooth delivery of abundant power, the Continental's available 3.0L V-6 twin turbo engine and all-wheel drive powertrain provide 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Three drive control settings (comfort, normal, and sport) along with ratio-changing adaptive steering contribute to the effortlessness of the car, while dynamic torque vectoring assists with efficient cornering maneuvers by allowing an outside tire to travel faster than its corresponding inside tire.

Additional technology such as the adaptive cruise control system with full-stop capability, lane departure warning that provides a gentle nudge when necessary, and hands-free voice-activation technology also keeps distractions at a minimum. Providing a sense of tranquility through product development and a unique approach toward client services, Lincoln has no doubt designed a vehicle that is beautiful not aggressive; effortless, not raw.


2017 Lincoln Continental

Starting at $44,560 MSRP with a fuel efficiency rating of up to 19/26 estimated city/highway mpg, the 2017 Lincoln Continental offers bespoke custom packages which easily integrate with the Lincoln Concierge, Date Night, and Black Label programs.


So you can ride comfortably off into the sunset ... or, you know, down the road to the next stop on your world tour.
