All-New Lincoln Continental Delivers Quiet Luxury: Elegant, Effortlessly Powerful, Serene

Lincoln Motor Company heralds the return of its flagship – the all-new Lincoln Continental – an elegant, effortlessly powerful, serene full-size sedan that delivers quiet luxury to the 's most discerning customers.

Beginning this fall, Continental offers first-class travel for clients in America and China, bringing warm, human touches and a contemporary design.

The full-size sedan is designed to appeal to culturally progressive clients who define luxury on their own terms – craving superior quality, craftsmanship and safety.

'The Continental name has long been associated wîth the ultimate in Lincoln beauty and luxury,' said Kumar Galhotra, president of Lincoln. 'With the all-new model, we are focusing on creating more human, personally tailored experiences for our clients – providing what we call quiet luxury.'
Elegance through designAll-new Continental design is thoroughly modern, wîth Lincoln's new signature grille and an athletic profile that is dynamic and progressive.

Lincoln's new flagship welcomes drivers wîth a brand-exclusive lighting sequence. As the driver approaches the car wîth the key, LED signature lighting in the lower front fascia and taillamps subtly engages, while signature lighting in the headlamps awakens in a fluid motion. Lincoln mat lights then brighten the pavement around the front doors, helping show any hazards, while select interior lights warmly illuminate the cabin. Continental door handles are designed to offer elegant and effortless entry wîth new E-latch door release. The release is discreetly integrated within the beltline, leaving the body side clean. With the gentle touch of a button, the vehicle's doors pop open, then use available power-cinching technology to automatically close and secure. An elegant available panoramic sunroof covers nearly the entire roof area; the front half slides up and over the rear – creating a large open-air driving experience and an even greater feeling of spaciousness for up to five Continental occupants.

Effortless power



Continental offers available technologies that help create better and safer drivers.

The all-new Lincoln-exclusive 3.0-liter V6 engine wîth twin turbochargers that produces a projected 400 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque 1 is designed for smooth, responsive, yet quiet power.

Continental's available all-wheel-drive system is paired wîth Dynamic Torque Vectoring that transfers torque on demand to the appropriate rear wheel when driving through corners – providing confident handling and stability.

Lincoln Drive Control provides the driver a choice of three settings – comfort, normal and sport – adapting §teering and suspension settings to tailor ride and handling. Available adaptive §teering helps optimize §teering response, enabling the vehicle to react more smoothly and precisely to driver input.

Continental's Pre-Collision Assist wîth Pedestrian Detection is designed to enhance occupant safety. A system of cameras and sensors detects if a potential collision may occur, then automatically applies the brakes, bringing the vehicle to a full stop to help avoid or reduce impact. 2

Effortless assistance for the daily commute is available wîth optional adaptive cruise control, which can automatically slow Continental in stop-and-go traffic – resuming speed when traffic clears.

To take the stress out of parallel and perpendicular parking, the new 360-degree camera system uses views from cameras mounted in the grille, decklid and 180-degree side mirrors, then seamlessly stitches these snapshots together to create an image in the screen so the driver can see around the car – as if a camera is overhead.

Serene interior

The all-new Continental interior is designed to help all occupants rejuvenate. One highlight is Lincoln's new Perfect Position Seats – inspired by private jets and high-end office furniture – that can be adjusted up to 30 ways. The patented design allows the seat to adjust to an individual's body shape and weight for optimal stretch and comfort. Available features of these seats include massage, heat and cooling; and independent thigh extensions to provide support.

Rear passengers can enjoy first-class travel amenities, too, wîth such available features as audio and climate controls, sunshades, and reclining, heated, cooled and massaging seats. The streamlined interior provides generous rear legroom. Continental occupants also can enjoy an available Revel® audio system developed to work in concert wîth the interior design and acoustics, transforming the cabin into a personal amphitheater wîth three distinct listening modes – Stereo, Audience and On Stage. Úse of the E-latch release enables optimal speaker positioning in the Continental doors, alongside the conveniently located seat controls. Innovations in managing vehicle noise and vibration, including Active Noise Control and acoustic laminated glass create a quiet, comfortable environment conducive to conversation or contemplation. For those seeking the highest expression of Lincoln luxury, three Lincoln Black Label designer themes are available – Chalet, Thoroughbred and Continental-exclusive Rhapsody. Inside, opulent materials include leather seating, leather-wrapped console and instrument panel, unique stitching, genuine wood or aluminum appliqués. All models feature new design details. Stitching on the seats is specified at six to seven stitches per inch for a couture-like appearance, and the slats of the center console door are laser-cut to maximize consistency of the grain pattern. The all-new Lincoln Continental will be produced at Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan. The Lincoln flagship goes on sale this fall.
