Is the Lincoln Continental making a comeback? Well, according to singer Neil Young on a recent episode of Mad Money on CNBC, it is. The Continental was the flagship model for Lincoln from 1939 through 2002 and always carried distinctive styling and came well-equipped.
Young revealed that he is currently working with the Lincoln Motor Company and his digital music player and download service, called Pono, will be available on the “Continental” for a “2016 release.” This information isn’t entirely out of the realm of possibilities as Lincoln is working on a replacement for the MKS and it is due out in 2016.
The upcoming MKS should be revealed in late 2015 and then go on sale in the spring of 2016. It will be a stretched version of the current front-wheel-drive platform used on the MKZ. We’ll keep listening for more any more information on the future MKS replacement.
What do you think? Should Lincoln revive the Continental name, stick with MKS, or choose something completely new?
