2017 Lincoln Continental: Update for August 2017

by Mark Takahashi, Senior Writer

2017 Lincoln Continental

Where Did We Drive It?
Eight months into our yearlong long-term test of the 2017 Lincoln Continental, we passed the halfway point to our mileage goal. Somewhere between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the odometer crossed over the 10,000-mile mark. On that trip, I also managed to top the best result for fuel economy. Otherwise, in regular commuter duty the Continental has received praise and a few complaints. Click on through to see what we're up to.

Where Did We Drive It?
It wasn't a month full of road trips or long journeys for our long-term2017 Lincoln Continental. There were several necessary repairs and a dealer service, so it sat quite a bit. We did, however, drive it around town and get to know it better than we had the previous months. No doubt, we'll start stretching this big sedan's legs pretty soon.

2017 Lincoln Continental: Introduction

What Did We Buy?
Over the last couple of decades, many of Lincoln's products have been modestly upgraded Fords. Sure, the Lincolns had different names and a few unique features, but even the most casual shopper could tell that a Navigator was just a fancy Expedition or the MKZ was a Ford Fusion in different clothes.

The new 2017 Lincoln Continental doesn't follow that formula. It not only revives a classic name, it gets Lincoln back into the game of making its own unique cars again.

More importantly, the Continental is the kind of car that Lincoln built its reputation on. It's a big, powerful sedan, but it's not trying to be a better BMW. The ride is forgiving, the cabin is quiet, and there's plenty of passenger room in every direction. It has plenty of modern technology, too, all of which we intend to test over the next 12 months.
