6. 2017 Lincoln Continental
The 2017 Lincoln Continental is a real boat of a car, and I mean boat in a good way. In fact, folks in the auto industry refer to it as being a liner, again, in a positive way. And, when you get a look at this luxury liner on wheels, odds are that images of the Crystal Serenity, Oceania Cruises’ Riviera, and other top luxury cruise ships will dance in your head.
Being one of the top luxury cars ever made, the 2017 Lincoln Continental, the 10th generation version of the storied model that got its start way back in 1939 (yes, 1938 is correct; that is NOT a typo), is loaded with nice touches and amazing features. However, the line tracing back 70 plus years is not a solid line; this soon-to-be-released Continental will be the first new one released in 15 years.
Examine its picture. What do you notice about its door handles? Yep, they are gone. In their place are some cutting edge E-latch releases that are fully integrated into the car’s beltline. The doors can also be opened with a push of a button and closed automatically, if you so wish.
The use of lighting on this American luxury car is stunning. Its low fascia has LED lighting, while LED and other forms of lighting at the floor mats, headlights and taillights, and activate and turn on slowly as if they rays of the early morning sun flowing over the horizon. The seating is all new and has more features than you can shake a tired back at. Yeah buddy, the new Continental is an amazing car!
