Lincoln Continental concept
It's been more than a decade since the last Continental came off the assembly line, but Lincoln says it's preparing an all-new version for the 2017 model year.
The Lincoln concept car senses you approaching and lights up -- inside and out. The high-tech E-Latch door handles are almost hidden in the beltline, opening automatically with one touch and closing quietly. A SmartGlass tinting sunroof protects passengers from direct sunlight and heat with the push of a button. Power comes from a 3.0-liter V-6 engine with EcoBoost.
The interior exudes elegance, with leather seats and door panels, suede seat inserts and armrests, and a satin headliner. Front-seat occupants experience a new seat design that conforms to the occupants' size and shape, adjusting 30 different ways. Move the front passenger seat forward and the rear seat directly behind it fully reclines.
Rear passengers get their own climate control, as well as a surround-sound audio system, which offers three modes: stereo, audience and on-stage. Other luxury features in the rear include a Champagne storage compartment, a lap tray for supporting a tablet and detachable leather travel cases.
Lincoln did not announce pricing for the production version of the Continental, due out next year.
