    Wow...what a horrid vehicle. Does the 'T' stand for terrible? How can the same company produce a vehicle as good as the Taurus, and then a vehicle as bad as the Lincoln Flex? The vehicle itself is pointless (the Flex is too expensive and not selling...why would a more expensive Lincoln version sell any better). Ford takes one step forward with the Taurus and 10 steps back with this..."thing". Oh well...I am sure there is someone out there who wants to waste their money on a "near-luxury" station wagon. I'll take an Enclave.

    i actually like it. come on people give credit where credit is due. jus because the big 3 r in bad shape doesnt mean we gotta diss obviously quality vehicles. this is a very nice crossover or watever even if the rear looks weird. and the materials in the cabin are very good from wat i can see. but the downside to me is the price. has anyone been to the site for this? it starts at 44995. and a top of the line mkt with the ecoboost and their so called "elite" package 54995. and iam pretty sure thats gonna hit 60k or close too it. i wouldnt really feel comfortable paying that much for a lincoln outside of maybe a navigator. is it jus me or is that alot of cash for a lincoln?

  • FreedMike I don't know why this dash shocks anyone - the whole "touchscreen uber alles" thing is pure Tesla.

  • ToolGuy I did truck things with my truck this past week, twenty-odd miles from home (farther than usual). Recall that the interior bed space of my (modified) truck is 98" x 74". On the ride home yesterday the bed carried a 20 foot extension ladder (10 feet long, flagged 14 inches past the rear bumper), two other ladders, a smallish air compressor, a largish shop vac, three large bins, some materials, some scrap, and a slew of tool cases/bags. It was pretty full, is what I'm saying.The range of the Cybertruck would have been just fine. Nothing I carried had any substantial weight to it, in truck terms. The frunk would have been extremely useful (lock the tool cases there, out of the way of the Bed Stuff, away from prying eyes and grasping fingers -- you say I can charge my cordless tools there? bonus). Stainless steel plus no paint is a plus.Apparently the Cybertruck bed will be 78" long (but over 96" with the tailgate folded down) and 60-65" wide. And then Tesla promises "100 cubic feet of exterior, lockable storage — including the under-bed, frunk and sail pillars." Underbed storage requires the bed to be clear of other stuff, but bottom line everything would have fit, especially when we consider the second row of seats (tools and some materials out of the weather).Some days I was hauling mostly air on one leg of the trip. There were several store runs involved, some for 8-foot stock. One day I bummed a ride in a Roush Mustang. Three separate times other drivers tried to run into my truck (stainless steel panels, yes please). The fuel savings would be large enough for me to notice and to care.TL;DR: This truck would work for me, as a truck. Sample size = 1.
  • Art Vandelay Dodge should bring this back. They could sell it as the classic classic classic model
  • Surferjoe Still have a 2013 RDX, naturally aspirated V6, just can't get behind a 4 banger turbo.Also gloriously absent, ESS, lane departure warnings, etc.
