It seems that, even though it is quite popular in the United States, the manufacturer simply was not able to produce a model worthy of its predecessor and eventually they decided to halt the production. Last Continental was produced in 2002 and until the beginning of this year no one even mentioned the model. This here is not spy shots Lincoln Continental, this here are pictures from the fair in Detroit.
At New York Auto Show, Lincoln showed a 2015 Lincoln Continental Concept – a model that shows what appears to be the 2017 Lincoln Continental. The interesting thing is that the concept vehicle looked pretty much production-ready. In the meantime, there were some updates from the manufacturer that stated that the Lincoln Continental 2017 is going to be unveiled in January at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.
2017 Lincoln Continental Concept Exterior Specs
When it comes to the design of the exterior, it is safe to expect that the 2017 Lincoln Continental Concept is going to look like the Continental Concept shown earlier. Of course, there are some fancy details on the outside that might prove to be too expensive for the production, but the overall look should be almost identical.
First thing you are going to notice is that this is a Lincoln that does not have the trademark split grille – meaning that after many years, the American manufacturer has finally decided to change it – the 2017 Lincoln Continental is going to have a new grille, that now has a raised Lincoln logo and mesh that is made out of polished aluminum Lincoln Star emblems. While some people will be sorry to see the trademark grille go, others will be happy to see a more elegant front.
On the other hand, the headlights shown on the Continental Concept most probably will not be featured on the 2017 Lincoln Continental. Furthermore, details like pop-out door handles and chrome strips on front and rear aprons and side skirts might make it into production.
On the back of the Continental Concept, Lincoln has used a full-width taillights with advanced light-through-chrome technology, which is yet another interesting feature and amazing piece of design that is not likely to be on the production model. Lincoln has also shown the concept with 21-inch wheels made out of polished aluminum, but the 2017 Lincoln Continental will most probably have smaller, classic alloy wheels with different tires.

When you take a look at the interior of the Continental Concept interior–you can see how much work has really been put into it and it really is designed beautifully. Good news is that the interior shown in the concept is the one that is going to be in the interior Lincoln Continental 2017. The interior in the concept was shown in dark blue color with metallic and chrome accents. Lincoln wanted to make the interior look luxurious, but also to make it feel just like that – because of that, they used premium leather for seats, high quality chrome details and a mix of soft-touch plastic and leather for the dashboard.
Furthermore, Lincoln plans to offer a 30-way adjustable front and rear seats, a tablet-supporting tray and a smart glass tinting sunroof – which are some of the features that its competitors don’t offer even in the top-of-the-range models. Concept has also shown a champagne storage compartment, however, it is less likely that this feature will be available in the base version – it should be reserved for the top trim level or even only for the long-wheelbase version that the American manufacturer is developing exclusively for the Chinese market.

Lincoln enthusiasts might be disappointed when they find out that the 2017 Lincoln Continental town car is not going to be offered with the V8 engine, instead it is most probably going to have the 3.0l EcoBoost V6 engine, which should produce up to 350 horsepower. The only problem is that, even if Lincoln is able to get that much power, the 2017 Lincoln Continental would be less powerful than its competitors, however, it could have the best fuel efficiency in the class.
Price of Lincoln Continental 2017
There is no information about the possible price, however, experts believe that the 2017 Lincoln Continental could have a $60,000 starting price.
