Every generation there are updates and improvements to the vehicles you already know and love. These innovations are intended to make the customer’s life easier, and especially provide better options in entertainment, safety, and technology. Lincoln is one of the brands that has distinguished itself as a luxury line with both cars and SUVS available for anything you could want. These new Lincolns have been updated for 2017, and many of the available features are unique to each model and trim levels.
The new Lincoln MKZ is the most powerful sedan in the Lincoln lineup. The 3-liter turbocharged V6 engine it will produce over 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque but will deliver a smooth, luxurious ride despite how powerful the engine is. Available options to make your commute even better is the continuously controlled damping suspension control system and active noise control, both features part of Lincoln Drive Control.
As part of the updated line of new Lincolns, the MKZ represents elegance at its finest. With Approach Detection, the MKZ can sense your approach with keys in hand, and welcomes you with an engaging experience. After being welcomed by your sedan, the ambient lighting in the interior will activate, based on your color selection from seven choices.
The new Lincoln Continental features the Perfect Position seats, which have 30 distinct seat movements to conform completely to your unique body type and comfort level.
The Continental has the available Lincoln Drive Control but has a number of other features that make it customizable for your personal tastes. Adaptive cruise control with stop and go adjusts for other cars in front of you, using both radar and camera technology. Auto Hold will keep the brakes engaged when stopped for a more secure stop and will release when the accelerator is engaged.
The MKX is a midsize Lincoln SUV available in Premiere, Select, Reserve, and Black trim levels. The starting price for this new Lincoln is under $40,000, lower than many competitor pricing. With five seats and plenty of cargo space, there is room for everyone.
The 2017 MKX received a 5-star rating from the NHTSA and comes with optional features that will only give you piece of mind about your family’s safety. These features include: a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, blind spot detection, active park assist, 360-degree surround view camera, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and pre-collision braking.
The Navigator is the largest and only full-size SUV Lincoln offers, weighing in at between 5,830 to 6,069 pounds! Equipped with a 3.5-liter twin turbocharged V6, the Navigator has more than enough power to deliver 9,000 pounds of towing capacity. The Navigator has more than enough towing capacity, but many passengers might not even realize they are towing such a heavy load. This is one of the ways that the new Lincolns work harder so you never have to.
The Navigator really shines in the superior safety it offers. The NHSTA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) awarded the Navigator a 5 out of 5 stars in 9 total categories: frontal barrier crash, side crash, side barrier, and combined side and pole.
The 2017 MKC features the optional upgrades for the SYNC 3 and THX II Certified Auto Systems.

This Lincoln SUV is a compact crossover available in Premiere, Select, and Reserve trim levels. Exclusive to the MKC is the optional 2.3-liter turbo engine with 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. Although less power than either the Navigator or the MKT, the MKC delivers both performance and power expected of the Lincoln brand.
Another midsized SUV, the MKT is longer, leaner, and lower to the ground than other Lincoln models, but has third-row seating with seven available seats, more than the MKX or MKC. Compared to the Navigator the MKT has less bulk to maneuver in the city.
Available in two trim levels, the MKT has a 303-horsepower V6 engine and front wheel drive.
