Ford Building Next-Gen Lincoln Continental in Michigan
December 31st, 2020 4:46 PM Share
Ford will build its next-generation Lincoln Continental at its Flat Rock, Michigan plant, which also produces the Ford Fusion and Mustang, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.
The announcement was made Wednesday by Ford’s Executive Vice President John Fleming at an event in Dearborn, Michigan.
The announcement comes ahead of negotiations with the United Auto Workers, which represents roughly 50,700 Ford employees.
Analysts have said the Continental will be an important car for the flagging luxury brand.
Ford announced last week that it would be ending production of the C-Max and Focus at its Wayne, Michigan plant.
Negotiations with the UAW begin on July 23.

No suspension travel, no sidewalls, I'd almost rent one for a day just to see how horrid the ride truly is.
well...so far so good for the anti-platform sharing/just a re-badge rants. This is, after all, being built on the same line as the Fusion and seems to be exactly what the haters look for in bashing Ford.
Hopefully they build it like they give a crap when they screw it together. It needs to be much nicer inside and out than the MKS.
