|   Wednesday, May 06, 2015
Lincoln's new Continental Sedan of 2017 version was spotted during testing in Michigan's Dearborn near Ford's headquarters. It is an exclusively new with trippy ball design in body. Though, it got its debut as a concept car in New York's auto show in this year, this Continental project was underway for a while and finally came up with a complete car.

Lincoln announced that they will give a real face to this Continental concept with the 2017 production version.
So regarding this model, a tentative design related to this prototype camouflage are being constructed which looks very close to the earlier version of it. Though, its lights at head and tail have now got LED type keeping a perfect proportion to its sedan look. As a buyer, one can decide whether the new changes are big risks by the brand or just following the latest trend for the sake of increasing buyers. Some might also feel that they are following other but one thing is clear that Continental has got bettered and it will please the luxury car lovers.

This model has so many luxury snobs with an exclusive architecture especially for front drive. It also has a longer wheelbase, powerful greenhouse ratio and shorter overhangs. Rear wheel driven option is the only thing it lacks. It will have standard all wheel driven option. It setup is to be bolted into a larger version that Lincoln MKZ or Ford Fusion has that is CD4 architecture.

The size difference is huge among a smaller sedan and Continental which required a special plan from engineers. It needed better chassis stiffness to get a bigger sized sedan. However, this may provide the vehicle some extra pounds. Few rumors are prevailing about this model that Lincoln put a misguided effort to make it cost efficient by ditching few important factors at interior. But its interior looks really well shaped and perfectly designed.

The power-train of 2017 Continental has 3.0 liter twin turbo 2.7 liter with EcoBoost and V6 engine. This may be for American buyers only. However, its base engine has 2.7 liter size. China market also has this model with a turbo charged engine having four cylinders at bottom end. Lincoln has the ability to launch its new version as six speeds auto transmission which may be planned to launch in near future or directly when it goes for sale. Ford is going to provide its both ten and nine speed auto transmission cars online in a usable mode. Continental may come with all wheel driven option for Ford's Focus RS which will have a sweet torque vector setup. But most probably it will secure itself for all weather and may be a less gymkhana.

From rumors it is detected that Lincoln won't make it too late to launch it for sale. Before a few days of its launch, the Continental's total body structure, lightings and other most important features will be updated. It will probably come next year as it had a splashy debut in the event held in Pebble Beach. Its prices may start from $60,000 and above.
