    It's about time Lincoln makes something worth looking at.

    Rear almost looks like a BMW to me. Where’s the gear selector?
    Looks sweet actually.

    I caught this and the Navigator at the NYIAS, hopefully this is the start of something good for Lincoln. The fit and finish on the Navigator was very un-Ford like, IE: actually good.

    Ford is (mostly) ditching their current car lineup, doesn't mean they won't develop new ones if there's a business case for it.

    That 32V 4.6 is nice and torquey too.

    As a previous Aviator owner, and a fan of both RWD and Ford, I'm definitely on board with this.
    Definitely helps that it's a lights out premium design inside and out, and I'm in for my new DD.
    PLEASE give us the Gen 3 Coyote/10A!
    I guess the premium 3.5 Ecoboost could be acceptable, but I'd prefer the V8.

    The motor was amazing but the platform of that era Aviator/Explorer was flat garbage. So many problems and issues which never went away even after the small redesign mid life cycle.

    Meh, it looks cool but it's gonna cost way too god damn much and not do anything that a hot rod German performance wagon doesn't already do. Like, this thing will never see off road, they'd do better using the Flex to make somethign like this. I'm probably in the minority here but I live in Europe and currently on a 45 day TDY in Germany and all the Audi/BMW/Mercedes turbo wagons out here are super nice. And all RWD too since forever ago.

    Give me the Mark IX with a factory supercharged Gen3 coyote engine and the 10 speed ubertrans. THEN, I'll get excited about a Lincoln.

    Push button gear selector, Brad. The buttons are above the center console just below the center A/C vents. Four of them.

    I like it. Looks great! I look forward to the next few years of what Ford will bring.

    Well, I wanted a new truck next time I bought a vehicle. However, I love this. I'd be very tempted to buy one.

    Can the German wagons tow 9,000 lbs or pull a 20'+ boat?

    RWD is awesome. Won't have that Ford suv PTU then.

    Don't hold your breaths for a V8. This is going to be a plug-in hybrid. The "best" we can [unfortunately] expect is an Ecoboost V6. Think Raptor or F150 Platinum.

    Maybe I missed it in the OP, but the original article from Lincoln about this new platform stated one of the reasons to turn the engine 90 degrees was to make it easier for all-wheel drive. Put that in the mix as well.

    I like it, but I suspect I won't care for the price. For the $$ it will likely cost I'd sooner spend it on a Jeep Trackhawk because...well because 707hp.
