Lincoln Continental One Of The Most Satisfying Cars To Own, Survey Says

The current, tenth-generation Lincoln Continental sedan is one of the most satisfying-to-own cars you can get in the United States, according to Consumer Reports, having made the outlet’s “10 Most Satisfying Cars” list alongside sleek, sultry entrants like the Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche 911, and Tesla Model S. The full-size sedan relaunched one of Lincoln’s most famous nameplates for 2017 after a decade-and-a-half of absence.

The 2017 Lincoln Continental comes in at No. 4 on the list, based on survey data from Consumer Reports subscribers who rated their whips in six categories – driving experience, comfort, value, styling, audio, and climate control – and answered the question: If you had to do it over again, would you buy or lease the car all over again? Most Lincoln Continental customers would, it seems.

Beside the Lincoln Continental, Ford Motor Company had one other vehicle on Consumer Reports‘ “10 Most Satisfying” list: the Ford F-350 Super Duty. That vehicle was also completely redesigned from the ground up for 2017, now boasting an aluminum-alloy body and a super-capable 6.7L diesel V8 option that spits out a pavement-torturing 925 lb-ft of torque.

Be sure to stop by for the full list.

    When will a hybrid or electric version debut? And why do they not use the turbo 2 liter in the hybrid version?

    Like I said, they keep talking about it’s days being number so who knows if they’ll have a hybrid version. It would make sense but I would hope that a V6 would be used in such a version being that a 4 is too noisy.
