2019 Lincoln Continental
The 2019 Lincoln Continental is the longest, most expensive car within the Lincoln lineup, serving as a flagship car for the Lincoln brand, and sitting above the Lincoln MKZ. Model year 2019 marks the third year of production for the tenth generation Continental. The car was released in 2016 as a 2017 model-year model after a fourteen-year absence.

All variants of the 2019 Lincoln Continental are available for order. However, since the Continental 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition model is limited to only 80 units, the car may be sold out as we write this.
There are currently no plans to update the Lincoln Continental beyond the 2019 model year. With sedan sales declining each year, we ignore if there will be a next generation Continental all together.
