  1. I still think the Taurus is beautiful tho agree about regaining to the interior room of the previous generation I expect the 2.3EB in a Fusion-ST (300+hp)& the 2.7EB (Nano v6) in the Taurus SHO (375hp?) dunno about regular Taurii & imho the top MKS should keep the 3.5EB but gen2 could easily have upto 420hp or more
  2. at first I just thought it was OK but after seeing this video I'm more than surprised...ASTONISHED how Beautiful the remade Navigator is! Max(imum)Wolff is a GENIUS!!
  3. • what if an Awd version used front-electrics instead of an origami driveshaft arrangement? • what if it was only available as a considerable upcharge? • what if it wasn't called a 'Mustang'? • what if it WAS a Lincoln?
  4. I'm trying my best to believe that the "large" sedan Mr. Mulally recently mentioned is the MKS's bigbrother (E386) to replace the MKT!!... ...imho eventually the MKS will be replaced with a new RWD Continental

  6. Lincoln News: Lincoln To Focus On High Volume Segments

    ^ I really disliked the new Z until I saw an early video - either on a turntable or the camera orbiting around the car THEN it made sense tho I'm still withholding judgement until I see it in person & Kudos on keeping an open mind, ocnblu

    ^ oops, sorry, I didn't double check on the Z as for Smoked Quartz, I think it's one of those new paints that change greatly with its surrounds but basically a rich gray here's a recent video favorite frame:

    for some reason can't edit ^ so I'm ashamed I forgot there IS a unique color for each the MKZ & Fusion MKZ gets the lovely Smoked Quartz while the Fusion gets Ice Storm (tho only on the Hybrid)-(which may or may not be the same as their old Ice Blue Metallic)

I don't know all the models listed well enough to do it without research I don't have time/energy for THO imho the 5-series is Not the same segment as a Lexus ES ...etc... even if they are cross-shopped

    Anyone know what the highest volume luxury model is? or the highest "volume segments in the luxury segment"?
  12. Lincoln Ponders A Performance Division

    as I've gone from forum to forum on this subject I'm becoming actually AGAINST marketing Lincoln performance. (possibly except for a subtly different badge: based on the original Continental MkII) Fomoco needs to develop a comprehensive program/philosophy for it, but imho it'd be better to not make a big a deal about one trim and adopt more of a Rolls Royce attitude of, "We have more than adequate performance for you - at whatever level you prefer"... ...whether that's Light/efficient/green or enthusiast driving 'con brio' and everything in between. for enthusiasts: a nextgen MKS (AWD) with a 400hp 3.5EB or a nextgen MKS (AWD) with a 400hp 5.0v8 (LINK) OR a nextgen MKZ (AWD) with the 400hp 3.5EB or a nextgen MKZ (AWD) with a (upto) 350hp 2.7EB OR an AWD Focus/GCMax-based "MKE" with the (upto) 350hp 2.7EB OR a RWD Lincoln "Zodiac" (LincStang) with one of the above engines or a RWD Lincoln "Zodiac" with a 600hp 5.0EB OR a RWD Lincoln Continental (GRwdP) with any of the above engines
  13. Ford Police Interceptor Will Get 2013 Taurus Upgrades
