The Smartphone Car Key Thing Needs To Stop

The Smartphone Car Key Thing Needs To Stop

People generally seem to be on board with the new 2020 Lincoln Aviator. I know I am. It looks great, is probably real comfortable and comes with a ton of power . But it also has a Phone As A Key feature, which is a terrible idea and a trend I wish automakers would drop altogether.

Lincoln’s Phone As A Key uses a Bluetooth connection to pair with your smartphone. Using the Lincoln app, the...

Actually The 2020 Lincoln Aviator Makes Almost 500 HP For Some Reason

Actually The 2020 Lincoln Aviator Makes Almost 500 HP For Some Reason

When the new 2020 Lincoln Aviator hybrid was introduced last year, it was promised to have an estimated 450 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. It turns out Lincoln was apparently way underselling it then, because the official numbers are now up to a ridiculous 494 HP and 630 lb-ft of torque, exactly what you want in your luxury crossover.

CarBuzz and AutoGuide are both reporting that a spec...

I can think of no better way of celebrating Fourth of July weekend than behind the wheel of a big, ol’ American car. Behold, the behemoth 2019 Lincoln Navigator. What do you want to know about it?

Folks (and you’re going to hear this a lot from me about this car): The thing is big. Massive. Colossal. Enormous. Vast....

2016 Lincoln MKX: This Is It

2016 Lincoln MKX: This Is It
Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

Lincoln has been going through what has been called a "brand renaissance" since sometime around when the real Renaissance actually ended. And while we've been mostly disappointed, the 2016 Lincoln MKX is easily the most promising model in the Lincoln fleet.

In a segment that is insanely important for Lincoln (and pretty much every luxury automaker), the MKX has...

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair Turned Out to Be a Really Good-Looking Car

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair Turned Out to Be a Really Good-Looking Car

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair’s proportions are pretty standard for a medium-sized crossover, but hot dang, it’s ridiculously handsome. The design achieves a really nice “cool without trying too hard,” which should be enough to make it popular no matter what it’s like to drive.

The Corsair, whichwe poked fun at when it was still being teased out, was revealed to the world online at midnight...

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair Is Officially Happening

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair Is Officially Happening

Last June, we heard reports that the Corsair name would not, in fact, be used as part of an Edsel rebirth, but for the Lincoln MKC crossover replacement instead. But as far as Lincoln crossovers and SUVs have been going, the car might actually turn out to look pretty good.

All Lincoln offered today, ahead of the 2020 Corsair’s official debut at the New York International Auto Show next...

Why So Many Lincoln Town Cars Were Made Into Limos

Why So Many Lincoln Town Cars Were Made Into Limos

For its three decades of existence, the Lincoln Town Car was not so much a thing that real people bought as it was a thing that fleets, limo companies, and taxi companies bought. That’s because it was huge, basically reliable, and replacement parts were easy to get. But limo converters liked it in particular for a more straightforward reason: its body-on-frame design meant that they were...

The Tesla Model 3 Killed the Rest of American Luxury

The Tesla Model 3 Killed the Rest of American Luxury

Despite the countless issues that have plagued the Tesla Model 3 ’s production and delivery process, Tesla did manage to sell an impressive number of them last year. And that figure, when contrasted with all the other cars sold in the U.S. last year, paints a very bleak picture of the state of American luxury car brands indeed.

Yesterday, as part of Tesla’s fourth quarter and 2018 full year...

You Can Look Good In A 2020 Lincoln Aviator For $51,100

You Can Look Good In A 2020 Lincoln Aviator For $51,100

A weird thing has happened at Lincoln over the past couple months or so. For years, car people derided the brand for its incomprehensible model names, general lack of relevance, unappealing designs and propensity to stick nice leather into some Fords and call it a day. “Be more like Cadillac!”, we screamed. But Cadillac’s looking rough these days , and some of the new Lincolns are seriously...

The 2019 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition Sold Out In 48 Hours, But More Are Coming

The 2019 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition Sold Out In 48 Hours, But More Are Coming

Lincoln’s coach-built reverse-opening long-wheelbase Continental lux sedan is a premium experience that was promised to only 80 lucky buyers. The privilege of being on the list cost these buyers $110,000, or $40,000 more than a top-of-the-line normal-door Lincoln Continental.

Lincoln announced the arrival of the car on December 17th, and by December 20th, every single one of the 80 were...

Lincoln's Making 80 Special Edition Continentals With Suicide Doors

Lincoln's Making 80 Special Edition Continentals With Suicide Doors

Okay, so Lincoln is, for real, bringing suicide doors back to the fancy but unfortunately slow-selling Continental sedan. Just not very many of them, and those that do get snatched up by buyers are destined to become instant collector’s items.

Looks Like Lincoln Will Bring Back Suicide Doors After All

I was just lamenting about how Lincoln has teased us with reverse-opening suicide doors on...

Looks Like Lincoln Will Bring Back Suicide Doors After All

I was just lamenting about how Lincoln has teased us with reverse-opening suicide doors on concept cars for years. Well, my pleas may actually be getting answered. Apparently the refreshed Lincoln Continental will, finally, gain the clapdoors it hasn’t had since 1969. This time they’re called “Coach Doors.”

According to forums and corroborated by a picture that, legally, we can’t directly...

Lincoln Teases Us With Suicide Doors Yet Again, Like They Always Do

Lincoln Teases Us With Suicide Doors Yet Again, Like They Always Do

Lincoln has a very specific kink, and they love to tease us with it. The kink is the suicide door—specifically, rear suicide doors on a four-door car, in a configuration called “clapdoor” and made famous on the fourth-gen, 1961 to 1969 Lincoln Continental. It’s a great look, and while I would love to see a production Lincoln use these center-opening doors again, I’ve been burned too many...

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator Has Sleek Lines and 450 HP

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator Has Sleek Lines and 450 HP

I’m so glad that Lincoln is moving away from its awful, alpha-numeric naming system. It makes the cars easier to identify and gives it an opportunity to pick some cool names. The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is armed with epic nomenclature, smooth, clean lines and an impressive 450 horsepower. These are all good things.

This is the real one now and visually, not much has changed between it and the...

Lincoln Once Made A Goofy Short Movie With Over-The-Top Soviets About the Continental

Lincoln Once Made A Goofy Short Movie With Over-The-Top Soviets About the Continental

The world was a very different place back during the height of the Cold War. America had a very clear, uncomplicated rival in the Soviet Union, but our relationship with the USSR wasn’t one that always demanded seriousness and fear. Sometimes, goofy versions of our sworn enemies could be trotted out to help sell cars. Which seems to be what’s happening here, with this strange little film from...

The 2019 Lincoln Aviator Has the Best Gimmick

The 2019 Lincoln Aviator Has the Best Gimmick

There’s no way for me to be cynical about this: The new 2019 Lincoln Aviator will not just be a rather handsome iteration of the innumerable crossovers on today’s market, but it will also be debuting a plainly wonderful little gimmick when it debuts at the LA Auto Show. Various chimes for the car will be from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

The Jay Leno-Inspired Lincoln Navigator Weirdly Has No Denim Anywhere

I zoomed in on the press photos. I scanned them carefully. I even hit command + F on my keyboard for the word “denim” in the press release. No dice. How is this a proper custom Lincoln Black Label Navigator for Jay Leno, then, if it has no damn denim anywhere on it?

The long wheelbase Navigator was unveiled at SEMA (because of course it was), and specially ordered by the famed denim-on-denim...

Meh Car Monday: You Can Actually Still Buy a Lincoln MKT But You Won't Because Nobody Bothers

Being a writer in this glorious modern age is fascinating. On one hand, it means every little mistake you make is immediately found and people all over the world get to call you a moron in real time. On the other, it means that your readers can get directly involved, which I love. That’s why today’s Meh Car comes from a reader named Preston who suggests not just any Meh Car, but his own Meh...

The Lincoln Continental is Probably Dead By 2020

The new Lincoln Continental debuted to a ton of fanfare, only to be immediately and brutally met with a market moving swiftly away from sedans to SUVs. So rumors about the demise of the Lincoln Continental started circling a few months ago , but now it appears that they are coming closer to fruition.

Initial rumors stated that the Continental would be cancelled at the end of the run of the...
