That and more makes the new Continental a top luxury model simply because it puts the “luxury” back in the name. While some models can whip from zero to 60 mph in record time, the Continental is playing the comfort game.

Don’t be fooled, though. The 2017 Lincoln Continental will soon roll out with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 400 hp. No matter what powertrain drivers choose, the Continental offers a smooth, relaxing ride time and time again. The luxurious features, powerful engine, and price make the new Lincoln Continental a luxury car for drivers of all ages.

The 5-Star Safety Ratings Program: What Is It, Where to Find Scores

Lincoln Welcomes Customers with Customized Showroom ScentFord logo

One of the most reliable ways to determine the safety of vehicle is to check it the safety rating it was assigned by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which has been scoring vehicles’ safety since 1978.

The NHTSA’s 5-Star Safety Ratings Program has been continually evolving since then, adapting to the latest safety technology. Today, the program evaluates both crash protection and rollover safety, making its scores remarkably thorough. In fact – the NHTSA is the only organization that rates rollover resistance as well as frontal and side crash protection.

The scoring is simple. There are five possible stars that a vehicle can earn, where only receiving one star is the worst possible score and five stars is equivalent to the best possible score. Any vehicle that gets a 5-Star Safety Rating from the NHTSA reflects the best that the industry has to offer, while 4-Star vehicles are also impressively safe.

You can look up the specific safety ratings of vehicles here, at safecar.gov, to see where your prospective vehicle lies on the spectrum. One thing is for sure: when it comes to safety ratings, the NHTSA has your back.

Black Label at Home Gets the Spotlight in New York

Last year, Lincoln introduced its Black Label line. This feature adds high-level luxury amenities to the 2015 MKZ and MKC. Buyers can choose from four themes, including Center Stage, Indulgence, Oasis, and Modern Heritage. Each theme is expertly curated to add premium materials, such as Alcantara, Venetian leather, and designer woods.

Now, Lincoln is showing off its Black Label luxury with the Black Label at Home program. This luxury experience was on display in New York City in a luxurious four-floor penthouse in Union Square with rooms dedicated to each of the Black Label themes. Guests were welcome to visit the penthouse throughout the Tribeca Film Festival, which Lincoln was sponsoring for the second year.

“Each Black Label at Home experience represents a special opportunity for Lincoln,” said Lee Jelenic, Lincoln U.S. marketing manager, in a statement. “But when you factor in the importance of being in New York, and then the relationships we’ve built as a supporter of the Tribeca Film Festival, this is going to be a fantastic week.”

The Black Label at Home experience in New York ran through Sunday, April 26. It previously was showcased in Hollywood Hills and a private residence in South Florida. Next, Lincoln will move the project on to Dallas. We here at Nick Nicholas Ford Lincoln think this program is outstanding. What about you?

Lincoln Continental Concept Provides Quiet Luxury

What does the Lincoln Continental Concept have to offer? We are glad you asked. The automaker introduced the concept just ahead of opening day for the New York International Show. While we are quite sure the showroom floor was bustling loudly of car experts and enthusiasts, the Continental Concept stood in contrast as a re-defining of quiet luxury.

Lincoln Continental Concept

The 1956 Lincoln Continental

The full-size sedan debuted in concept form, but it gives us an idea of Lincoln’s upcoming all-new sedan and innovative technology. The Continental offers a bold statement with features like 30-way adjustable seats, a premium audio system by Revel, E-Latch door handles, a 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine exclusive to Lincoln, and much more.

In the midst of these innovative new technologies, the Continental manages to provide an experience free from excess noise.

“Luxury at its best is about simplifying and quietly exceeding expectations, rather than being the loudest statement on the road,” said Mark Fields, president and CEO of Ford Motor Company. “The Continental Concept showcases the promise of quiet luxury from Lincoln going forward. It also is a strong indication of what’s to come next year as we introduce our new Lincoln Continental full-size luxury sedan.”

We at Nick Nicholas Ford Lincoln are eager to see how closely next year’s production vehicle resembles the Concept in all of its luxury.
