The Return of Real Luxury
There’s little doubt that the American luxury market has been sparse in the past decade with few viable options that meet the needs of the modern driver. The 2017 Lincoln Continental looks to revolutionize the industry once more! The car of presidents and movie stars has made its return in a big way and marks the comeback of real luxury.
The 2017 Continental kicks things off with an E-latch door handle designed to make opening the door itself provide a sense of overwhelming luxury. The sleek lines and attractive grille create a sophisticated style, while the athletic wheels raise the bar for the industry as a whole.
Inside, drivers will enjoy the latest in infotainment technology, starting with the SYNC 3 system complete with advanced voice-recognition software. A Revel audio system provides pristine sound in the enclosed, acoustically-friendly cabin.
An available 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine offers 400 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque for a perfect 1:1 ratio. Plus, the new Lincoln Continental is available with all-wheel drive, allowing drivers to travel almost anywhere in complete style and comfort.
We at Mountaineer Lincoln are happy to see the 2017 Continental leading the charge is bringing real luxury back to the United States!
