2017 Lincoln Continental Car Review

Lincoln’s Continental returns from a 15-year sabbatical toned, confident and familiar in a Bentley Flying Spur kind of way. The rest of the car has it’s own character. Tom Voelk reviews the Lincoln Continental Reserve model.

    Drove one. Felt like a fake ripoff of an S class on the interior and the Transmission felt jerky and hesitant and The motors on the power seats are really loud….

    Rear looks like an Azera. The rest of the exterior looks like a chinese Bentley. Interior is kinda good tho.

    No thanks. I'll keep my 79 Continental. A REAL Continental lol

    Trust me, I got nothing against modern stuff, but this is just a sad excuse for a continental.

    We've finally made it past 50k. I've been hanging in her for years, hopefully the growth is exponential as you've put in the work and consistently given us greater quality videos than channels with more resources.

    I'm a Cadi Man, and I was planning on buying the CT6 but after seeing this car I may become a Lincoln Man.

    Finally, a car that is putting Lincoln back on the map. According to sales numbers, they are selling quite well.

    What I don't understand is the lower suspension in the rear. For a luxury car when I see these cars it looks like the two rear shocks are broken. The car is beautiful in the front but this drop in the back looks bad. If you load up the trunk with a few pieces of luggage and add just two adults it's not a pretty seen. They did the same thing with the new Lacrosse. The previous model would sat nice and high off the ground but now it's really low and the rear is also lower.

    $45 grand ain't bad for a start price.

    What ever happened to the '62 Continental's beauty with which Lincoln wowed the luxury car world? Those cars are still, to this day, modern looking and stunningly gorgeous.
    Lincoln (Ford) builds great automobiles. But somewhere through the years they lost their stylistic grandness.
    Hell, Kias/Hyundais look better than this car. But this does look better than the new Camry…lol

    I bet one could get a used Maybach over this and be riding in more style and comfort for a lot less dough. I've so far only seen livery drivers getting these Continentals… kiss of death for Lincoln again

    Theres nothing to sway consumers at its way. 13 way adjustable seats? Thats not enough to make anyone change there mind

    Maybe it's just me but I'm in the minority. I think it looks stunning up close. I saw one in this metallic gray and it was like a diamond….looks reserved yet elegant….I see enough Audi A6 and E classes to know I don't want one. Give me the Continental in Reserve in Rhapsody Blue or Magnetic Gray…

    I think I kind of see the problem. Yes, our cars have gotten better, though the Germans still hold a lead. However, when I see these cars and their improvements, I see competent takes on the german formula, but they kind of feel like an "alternative" in that respect, like a Hyundai Genesis or Equus. Basically, you don't think of these as dream cars. They're like, oh, look. lincoln/cadillac/hyundai are following Benz and Bmw's formula…with decent results, but I still rather take a benz. Even if lincoln/cadillac suddenly built a car better than an E-class or 5 series, it would be hard to convince the luxury market to buy it because benz and bmw still dominate in the mind. They have this almost mythical "zing" factor Lincoln/Cadillac/Hyundai just can't replicate (at least right now). That takes time/legacy to build. And the formula for that isn't simply recreated in a factory.

    Miserable. I owned a 76 Continental, not even close to a golden year but not like this. The concept was great, this is just a Taurus with a new grill and wheels. The side profile at 1:00 is particularly bad – the car is 200" long but looks like a squat, fat family hauler. They really need to refresh it to look more like the concept, but never will. Lincoln's big gambit and they won't sell anything once the current 65-to-skeleton retired senior segment is gone

    If trickle down anything ever had a place, it's here. Lincoln should have its own R&D department from which innovation trickles down unto Ford. That would give it prestige and really distance it from Ford and ultimately position it above it in terms of perception. For all we'd know, Ford could be the daughter company and the parent, Lincoln; not the other way around.

    I believe it's doable, at least in markets where Lincoln is unknown but would like to tap in and Ford is not seen favourably.

    It seems weird that Bentley ended up with a Ford Motor Company Trademark name! I assume Ford trademarked the name Continental. Ford first used the Continental before WW2. Bentley Noo….

    1:36 Ford quality right there. Watch the entire panel move. This is not a CT6 competitor. This is an XTS competitor.

    The best sound system I've ever heard was in the new XC90…$3,200 option, but it is serene

    Lincoln is a lot more reliable than cars like cadillac, mercedes, bmw, jaguar, etc. decent car nonetheless.

    This is a very beautiful Lincoln

    You've tested this WHITE Continental, a WHITE CT6 and a WHITE G90. They all look great! [Especially the G90] I think I'd buy a WHITE one!!
