2018 Lincoln Continental
One of the brand’s most iconic models finally came back last year, after 15 years of brake, and we believe that 2018 Lincoln Continental won’t feature bigger changes. History of this model begins in 1939. Original model was launched in 1939 and it was in production until 2002. During all these years, we have seen nine generations of it. Now, company brings back this legendary nameplate, after 15 years of brake. Its successor and replacement wasn’t so successful and company decided to stick to the proven nameplate. It came last year, and we believe that 2018 Continental will continue in same way. Since it is still very fresh, it should come without changes, with pretty much same characteristics in all aspects.
2018 Lincoln Continental redesign and features
As we already mentioned, 2018 Lincoln Continental should continue in the pretty much same way. It came completely new last year and there is really no need for some additional modifications.

This sedan features many advanced features and technologies never seen in Ford vehicles before. There are features like “E-Latch”, which automatically shut door if isn’t completely closed.

Also, there is a lot of premium features like 360-degree camera, 13- or 19-speaker audio system, adjustable massaging seats, latest infotainment system, Sirius XM radio, navigation etc.
