About Lincoln

As the luxury vehicle brand of the Ford Motor Company, Lincoln was founded in 1917 in Dearborn, Michigan, where its headquarters remains today. The brand is perhaps best known for the Lincoln Continental sedan, which debuted in 1940 and is currently for sale in its 10th generation of production (2017-present). This full-size luxury sedan boasts a standard 3.7L V6 engine at 305 hp (2018 model year), as well as keyless entry, an adaptive suspension, dual-zone climate control, and simulated leather upholstery.

Those with larger families may want to check out the Navigator, a three-row luxury SUV that offers ample space for up to seven passengers and 103 cubic feet of maximum storage space (2017 model year). Other standard features on the full-size 2017 Navigator include leather front- and second-row seats, automatic dual-zone climate control, front/rear parking sensors, and a 14-speaker audio system with surround sound. Also included on the 2017 Navigator is a turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine at 380 hp and rear-wheel drive, though four-wheel drive is optional.

Lincoln also offers several crossover SUV models for sale, ranging from the compact MKC to the larger MKT.

With many vehicles to choose from, it's easy to see why Lincoln has been a popular choice in luxury vehicles for more than 100 years.
