Considering the last model of the Continental has been built in 2002, we expect that this brand new iteration of the car, the 2015 Lincoln Continental to be an amazing full size saloon with great luxury and an engine that will move the mountains. Well, you wouldn’t be that far from the truth. This new model is going to be an all-wheel drive car that will most likely feature a turbocharged engine plus a ton of interior equipment.
Let’s start with the concept of the car. The first one that hinted there will be another model, new generation, was made in 2002 and featured suicide doors, a massive engine and an interior that could be considered better than that of a Rolls. After the introduction of this concept we could not hear many details about it so the further development has been postponed and it seems that it is the time for it to become interesting again.
2015 Lincoln Continental Concept
The 2015 model will probably set the notch a bit lower, but it will still feature, as standard, leather interior with front and rear ventilated and heated electric seats, a panorama roof, a 10 inch screen for the satellite navigation, premium audio system with surround sound as well as multiple screens in the back. The back seats will be able to be reclined in order to increase the comfort of its passengers.
Lincoln Continental Back Top View
We don’t know that many things about the exterior of the 2015 Lincoln Continental but considering it will be based on the same platform as the Fusion, we expect it to look quite good. These cars will most likely feature Xenon light for the front and LED at the back, 19 inch wheels as standard and there is a slim possibility that it will feature the suicide doors. On top of these, it will get a boxier look than the current Fusion in order to better suit the Lincoln design scheme.
2015 Lincoln Continental Side
Engine wise, Ford hasn’t said anything about the powertrain of this car but there are two possibilities. It is going to get either the 3.5 liter EcoBoost with around 400 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque or the smaller but equally impressive 2.7 liter EcoBoost with 325 horsepower and 375 lb-ft of torque. Power will be sent via an automatic transmission to all four wheels, so expect the car to stick to the road in the corners with absolutely no problem.
Price Of 2015 Lincoln Continental
The base car is likely to cost around $60.000 while the top of the range 2015 Lincoln Continental model will probably set you back for $90.000 which is still significantly less than buyers of premium sedans are paying in some cases. It is expected to be released in the mid of 2015 but the additional details about it should be offered even before then. As soon as we get more info we will deliver that right here.
2015 Lincoln Continental Interior
In conclusion, the new 2015 Lincoln Continental is going to be quite an amazing car. It will be a full size sedan that will feature enough interior space to keep 4 adults in perfect comfort. There is no doubt that it will bring few changes to the market and it will be quite interesting to see how will it cope with competition that is quite strong in this market segment.
