Lincoln's New Nautilus Finally Includes Properly Modern Technology

https://www.carthrot...ern-technology/

 

Lincoln is a brand that you wouldn't often associate with the latest and greatest in-car technology, but the new Nautilus finally gives younger buyers something to look at

The new Lincoln Nautilus has arrived, with brand new, innovative and amazing technology that absolutely hasn’t been offered on loads of other, cheaper cars for ages. Honest.

Lincoln would like you to believe that lane-centring tech is new and exciting, gently nudging the new Nautilus’ steering wheel to keep the car, as the name suggests, in the centre of its lane. No one mention all the compact hatchbacks and affordable saloons that have had this for years…

4006e3122cdef6f9fdc17fa55034ca25.jpeg

n the new mid-size SUV it pairs with adaptive cruise control that can bring the car to a complete halt and set off again in traffic. If the car in front hits the anchors and there’s not enough space to pull up, the lane-keeping tech can also help you attempt to swerve around it.

More sensors check your blind spots, for pedestrians and will even trigger automatic brake hold in traffic, so drivers don’t need to sit with their foot on the brake. Quelle horreur. While it isn’t Lincoln’s fault, is it just us or is car design becoming driven by consumer laziness?

Anyway, back to the point. The Nautilus, which is named after (take your pick) a mollusc, a series of naval vessels or a 1982 Atari video game, is powered by one of a pair of turbocharged petrol engines. The cheaper entry point is a 2.0-litre four-pot with 245bhp, but the more American option is the 335bhp, 380lb ft 2.7-litre blown V6.

Neat tricks up the car’s sleeve, most of which have been seen elsewhere already, include ‘embrace’ lighting when the key-holder approaches the car, seats with 11 channels of two-way adjustment, giving you hours, days and weeks of enjoyment and/or frustration as you try to get the damn chair just how you want it. The backrest will massage your cares away, and on high-spec models you can access heating and cooling.

The instruments are now fully digital, using a 12.3-inch screen akin to those that have been used on premium German motors for a few years. The gear shift is a push-button affair, there’s a hidden wireless charging pad and, of course, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration.

As a bizarre footnote, Nautilus buyers will also be given a six-month membership to the CLEAR scheme, allowing them to “speed through security at participating airports and major arenas nationwide.”


While Lincoln cars are not available in Singapore, good to know these cars for interest.  [;)]

Lincoln Continental May Get The Axe After Current Generation

 

https://carbuzz.com/...rent-generation

 

415918.jpg

 

Sales have been disastrous for the revived Continental.

A model once thought to hint at Lincoln's return to the glory days of American luxury may not be long for this world. After being on the market for only 18 months, the new Lincoln Continental may only get a single generation as Ford is rumored to be lining it up for the guillotine. Ford Authoritycited "sources intricately familiar with Ford Motor Company’s future product plans for its premium Lincoln brand" in its report. It's a sad day if true; the Continental attempted to redefine American luxury, and its cancellation would be an admission of failure.

When reached for comment, Global Lincoln Communications Manager, Angie Kozleski, told CarBuzz, "Continental remains an important part of the Lincoln lineup and we are not going to speculate our future product plans." Still, the reborn sedan hasn't been setting the sales charts alight. As a replacement for the slow-selling Lincoln MKS, the Continental has given Lincoln a marginal sales boost, but it was still outsold by the Genesis G80, Cadillac XTS, Audi A6, Lincoln MKZ, BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and Lexus ES last year. Lincoln reportedly invested $1 billion to revive the Continental nameplate.

Meanwhile, other models in the Lincoln family have seen steady growth. The all-new 2018 Lincoln Navigator has seen its sales increase since it went on sale toward the end of 2017, and the MKC—which will see a refreshed model arrive at dealers this summer—has also seen its sales numbers appreciate each year since the model's introduction in 2014. A redesign for the Lincoln MKX for 2016 brought with it a massive spike in sales, too. Of course, all of these vehicles are SUVs. On the car side of Lincoln's ledger, sales of the MKZ sedan have dropped from 34,009 in 2014 to just 27,387 last year. It was refreshed for 2017, just before the Continental's arrival.

Hennessey's 2018 Lincoln Navigator has 600 HP

https://www.autoblog...tor-first-look/

 

 

the-luxurious-Lincoln-Navigator.jpg

Texas tuner John Hennessey wants to steer the 2018 Lincoln Navigator into some serious performance SUV waters, presently dominated by the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and Range Rover SVR. Upping the power of Lincoln's range-topping sport-utility, from 450 horsepower to an even 600 hp, is enough to hustle the Navigator from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds and run the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds at 107 mph.

In terms of the 0-60 sprint, this performance upgrade nets you about 0.7 seconds versus the stock model. Good to know, in case you're hot to run a Navigator at your local drag-strip.

"The 2018 Navigator is a world-class luxury SUV and we wanted to take its already impressive power and performance to the next level," said president and company founder, John Hennessey.

So, what exactly has been done under the hood? The key to the performance improvements is better breathing, courtesy of a HPE600 twin-turbo engine upgrade.

 

Using the Navigator's twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 as its base, Hennessey adds a new engine management computer, a stainless steel exhaust system, high-flow air induction, and a large front-mounted intercooler with blow-off valve. Hennessey's six-wheel VelociRaptor, which uses the same base engine, produces 602 hp and 622 lb-ft of torque.

Optional extras include 22-inch forged alloy wheels, a lowering kit, and Brembo brakes at the front and rear. Those brakes might not be a bad idea, especially considering this 600-hp motor is attached to approximately three tons of SUV that will, eventually, need to be stopped.

This performance package rings in at $19,950 (including installation) and comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty from Hennessey. Only 200 examples will be built for the 2018 model year.

While not quite as crazy as the VelociRaptor, this Lincoln is also only about one-third the price of that monster truck.

Lincoln just added another new SUV to its luxury lineup

http://www.businessi...18-3/?r=US&IR=T

  • Lincoln’s latest New York auto show debut is a future crossover SUV, the Aviator.
  • The design shown to the media should be close to the production version.
  • It will be Lincoln’s first plug-in hybrid offering.

NEW YORK – Lincoln unveiled its new Aviator crossover SUV at an event for media on Monday, before press previews officially began for the New York auto show.

In a statement, Ford’s luxury brand called the Aviator it showed in the Big Apple, a “distinctive three-row plug-in hybrid production preview” and used it as a way to introduce a brand value it termed “quiet flight” and a design philosophy it characterized as “seduced by beauty.”

“The ‘teaser’ model serves to preview the direction Lincoln plans to take with its newest SUV when the production model goes on sale next year,” Lincoln said.

The new Aviator represents a strong move on Lincoln and Ford’s part away from sedans, whose sales have slowed, and toward SUVs, whose sales have been booming. It also represents a slight break from Lincoln tradition at the New York auto show, kicking off to the public on Friday.

5abaf4675c0d630c028b483d.jpg

 

In past years, Lincoln has debuted concepts for the Continental sedan and the Navigator SUV; the Aviator is closer to the production version of the vehicle.

It will be built on a new rear-wheel-drive platform and offering Lincoln’s first-ever plug-in hybrid system to go along with a twin-turbocharged engine. The Aviator will live between the Nautilus crossover and the Navigator full-size SUV in the rejiggered Lincoln lineup, which appears as if it’s going to evoke sailing and flying in relatively equal measure.

New Lincoln head Joy Falotico has taken over the restoration of the brand – a nameplate that, although storied, had been on the chopping block after the financial crisis.

5abaf467631af036008b48bd.jpg

“We believe Aviator’s elegant design, state-of-the-art technology and refined plug-in hybrid option will draw even more clients to the Lincoln showroom, including families who are looking for three-row capability,” she said.

Design director David Woodhouse walked journalists through the inspiration for the vehicle, ranging from ballerinas to curvaceous wooden sculptures to midcentury airplanes.

On the interior front, the Aviator will continue a Lincoln theme of subtracting distractions and presenting owners with a “sanctuary” – a calming, airy environment inside the vehicle.

Tech-wise, the Aviator will feature a host of driver-assist features, as well as Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system. It will also dispense with the need to carry a key fob around.

“Phone as a Key technology is expected to be one of the industry’s leading systems,” the carmaker said in a statement. “Activated through the Lincoln Way app, it allows owners to lock and unlock, open the trunk and, most importantly, start and drive the vehicle.”

Lincoln cars remains commited in producing sedans.

https://www.topspeed...d-ar181052.html

 

2017-Lincoln-Continental-12.jpg

 

There is a lot of discussion surrounding the extinction of sedans. Ford has already killed them in North America due to dwindling demands, but Lincoln will keep the ’traditional cars’ running. A spokesperson from Ford has said that Lincoln will remain committed to producing sedans. We are not sure what the rationale behind this is, as the response has not been great for the Lincoln sedans; with MKZ sales falling 34.4-percent and the Continental going down by 25.1-percent in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2018 alone.

Ford ended their century-long run with the sedans, but retained Lincoln’s traditional cars. As a matter of fact, Lincoln has just two sedans presently - the MKZ and the Continental - and both are fairly new models on the market. So, the commitment to continue the Lincoln "heritage" of sedans in the market is a little befuddling on its face. However, by retaining them under the Lincoln badge, Ford gets to observe the market trends and take a call on the future of sedans. Well played, Ford!

The next-gen Continental could ride on Ford’s new CD6 platform found beneath the 2020 Ford Explorer and Aviator, but apparently, that particular version of the modular platform is reserved only for SUVs, at least for the time being. And the MKZ? Maybe it could be based on the current platform, which seems unlikely, or could switch to the platform on which the next-gen Ford Edge will be built.

We feel Ford has jumped the gun a little too early. Kicking off the low-sale sedans will certainly free-up the assembly line and cash flow, but experts suggest this is a momentary dip and sedans could actually pick up in the future. Cars like the MKZ and the Continental are here to stay for the time being. While this sounds good for the ’three-box car’ enthusiasts, it’s a little odd as the MKZ and Continental, the only two sedans in Lincoln’s portfolio, have not been selling well. Interestingly, the Continental and the MKZ are based on Ford’s CD4 platform; the same one which underpinned the late Fusion as well. Will the Lincoln sedans be retired soon or will theFord sedans be revived again? Well, it’s like Schrodinger’s cat all over. We wouldn’t know whether it’s dead or alive until the box is opened. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments section below.
