Lincoln Navigator SUV concept opens wide in New York

Lincoln is really out to get noticed. And that's a good thing for a once-prestigious luxury brand that's become all too easy to forget. At last year's New York Auto Show, it added some serious flash and panache to its booth with the Continental Concept, which paved the way for the all-new production Continental. Now Lincoln is putting that same type of effort into the Navigator, showing New York what a cooler, sleeker Navigator of the future could (and will, to some extent) look like.Read More

Lincoln reimagines American luxury with new Continental

Lincoln has been through some tough times in recent years, but this year's Detroit Auto Show provided some strong evidence to suggest Ford's luxury arm is well and truly alive. The new Continental takes a unique path by ignoring Nurburgring lap times and pulling out of the technology arms race kickstarted by Mercedes and BMW. Instead, Lincoln has presented the quintessential modern American luxury car. Read More

Lincoln previews a sleeker high-tech future with Continental Concept

All eyes may have been on the Cadillac CT6 at this year's New York Auto Show, but next year the luxury market will likely be more focused on its rival, the new Lincoln Continental. Lincoln previewed the type of "quiet luxury" it has in mind for its forthcoming flagship at this year's NY show. The simply named Continental Concept departs sharply from Lincoln's current design language and promises to bring some past cachet back to the Continental nameplate with a slew of luxury and technology amenities.

Lincoln to use wood-based fiberglass substitute in new MKX

Usually when you hear about wood being used in a car's interior, it's a fancy solid hardwood used to class up the dashboard. On Ford's 2014 Lincoln MKX, however, a relatively new wood-based composite material will be used in place of heavier, less eco-friendly fiberglass. Read More

Popemobile with out-of-this-world provenance goes to auction later this week

The greater share of the value of any significant collector car is in the provenance – who sat in the seat before you, and experienced the same vehicle, can make a massive difference to the price the car commands. What then of a car that was specifically built for, and used, by Pope Paul VI? It went on to become the focal point of countless ticker tape parades for the first astronauts to orbit the moon (Apollo 8's Borman, Lovell and Anders), the first astronauts to set foot on the moon (Apollo 11's Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, plus Command Module Pilot Michael Collins) plus Apollo 13's Lovell, Mattingly and Haise and Apollo 15's Scott, Worden and Irwin, President Lyndon Baines Johnson and Vice President Hubert Humphrey. How much will it go for?Read More

Lincoln's vision of a luxury compact includes Eva, the talking car computer

The 2008 oil price bonanza seems to have given the U.S. auto industry a much-needed kick in the pants - pity it was closely followed by a crippling recession. While last year's petrol prices in America still seemed outrageously cheap to many Europeans, the spike was enough to finally put fuel economy and smaller cars on Big Auto's agenda. Take this concept from Lincoln, Ford's luxury brand, better known for its enormous presidential limousines. The 'C' Concept is Lincoln's vision of a luxury compact. Its 4cl, 1.6l, 180-horsepower Ecoboost engine gets 43mpg on the highway, 25% better than the Ford Focus manages - and its reconfigurable dash, hubless steering wheel and spooky KITT-style omnipotent conversational computer ("Eva, I need the most fuel efficient route to Luciano's") combine to make it one of the most unabashedly "futuristic" concepts shown at this year's Detroit Auto Show.Read More
