The Lincoln Aviator Has Heated Wiper Blades But Let Me Ask You This: Why Not Just Make The Whole Car Heated?

The Lincoln Aviator Has Heated Wiper Blades But Let Me Ask You This: Why Not Just Make The Whole Car Heated?

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is a car Lincoln makes. You can buy it if you live in a warm climate and you can buy it if you live in a cold climate. But if you live in a cold place, where snow and ice are common occurrences in the winter, Lincoln’s solution to make things a little easier is heated wiper blades. Cool! But, Lincoln, let me ask you this. Why didn’t you just heat the whole car?

2020 Ford Explorer's Crashworthiness Not Improved Enough For IIHS

2020 Ford Explorer's Crashworthiness Not Improved Enough For IIHS

The poor 2020 Ford Explorer just can’t catch a break. Issues with the screens and personnel problems at the plant have resulted in a messy launch and dropped sales. There was a recall . Now adding to the pile of complications is news the new Explorer’s crashworthiness didn’t improve enough for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to give it a safety award.

The agency reports while the...

At $4,350, Is This 1988 Lincoln Mark VII A Legendarily Good Deal?

At $4,350, Is This 1988 Lincoln Mark VII A Legendarily Good Deal?
Nice Price Or Crack Pipe Is this used car a good deal? You decide!Prev Next View All

The dealer selling today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe MK VII describes the model as a “legend.” While that’s disputable, there’s no doubt that this big coupe is of a style that today almost only exists in legend. Let’s see how epic its price might be.

One of the things I liked about yesterday’s 2015 Porsche...

The 2019 Lincoln Navigator Is A Glorious Return To American Opulence

The 2019 Lincoln Navigator Is A Glorious Return To American Opulence
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

We never had kings or queens here in America. (Well, we did before we were our own country, but we showed those fools what we really thought of them.) If we did, though, they’d all be driving 2019 Lincoln Navigators. The car is flush with splendor, rich with opulence and brings back the lavishness that was sorely lacking from...

Which Car Did Suicide Doors Best?

Which Car Did Suicide Doors Best?
CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.  

The Lincoln Continental’s suicide doors are back again for 2020 after a limited run last year. They’re pretty neat and probably the most unusual feature on any American sedan on sale today.They didn’t used to be, though. Lots of cars had them.

The ‘60s Continental’s doors may be the inspiration for the ones you can find...

Nearly Half A Million Fords and Lincolns Recalled For Faulty Seats

Nearly Half A Million Fords and Lincolns Recalled For Faulty Seats

Since the Ford F-series pickup truck was America’s best-selling vehicle last year (nearly a million sold, my God), the chances are good that at least one of you reading are affected by this latest recall, so pay attention.

Ford is recalling 482,520 vehicles over driver’s and/or passenger’s side manual front-seat back recliner mechanisms, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration...

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...

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

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

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

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

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 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...
