Jack’s proposal for a new Continental may have won over the hearts and minds of our readership, but Lincoln’s near-term product plans are erring on the side of conventional.
Reporting on the media introduction of the 2013 MKZ, Reuters claims that Lincoln will be introducing a barrage of new product by 2016 – first up will be a “revised” Navigator, that retains its body-on-frame capabilities, but will be powered by the 3.5L Ecoboost V6 that’s found favor among many F-Series buyers.
The new Navigator will bow at the end of 2013, along with an Escape-based crossover dubbed “MKC”. Following that, redesigned versions of the Lincoln MKX and MKS will debut in late 2014 and early 2015 respectively. And finally, a new rear-drive coupe, based on the next Mustang architecture, “could” debut sometime around 2016. ?
