Here Are Ford Authority’s Top 10 Lincoln Stories Of 2022

While every year brings about a number of changes, 2022 was a big one for Ford Motor Company as it continues to invest heavily in electrification while also revamping its ICE lineup. On the luxurious side of things, Lincoln also made the headlines numerous times throughout the year for a number of reasons. Thus, we’ve assembled the top 10 Lincoln stories of 2022 here at Ford Authority to put a bow on what was yet another year full of big news. You can find our top 10 Ford stories of 2022 by heading over here.

No Hi-Po Navigator

General Motors made waves when it debuted the supercharged, V8-powered Cadillac Escalade-V last year, making Lincoln fans wonder if they could expect a high-power Navigator to follow suit. Unfortunately, that isn’t in the cards, as Ford Authority reported in May.

Bucking the Trend

While most every new vehicle on the planet was slapped with some sort of markup over the past year, that wasn’t the case with Lincoln – in fact, the brand’s vehicles were, at one point, selling for less than MSRP.

Making a Comeback?

Ford stopped selling sedans in the U.S. a couple of years ago, a move that many fans aren’t exactly fans of. However, as Ford Authority reported in May, the door remains slightly open for the return of a Lincoln sedan.

Next-generation Lincoln Nautilus

Big Leak

While production of the Lincoln Nautilus is set to end in North America in the coming years, a next-generation version of the crossover leaked via a Chinese government website earlier this year, though as of now, it’s unclear what markets the new Nautilus will be sold in.

Uncertain Future

Though the refreshed 2023 Lincoln Corsair and Ford Escape are just entering production, it seems as if the future of the facility both are built at is uncertain. The Blue Oval reportedly has no plans to produce next-generation versions of the crossovers, and doesn’t have a model that’s currently slated to replace either as well.

Goodbye Nautilus?

Speaking of the Nautilus, it faces an uncertain future outside of China after production of the crossover ends in Canada in 2024, a development that Ford Authority confirmed back in January.

Lincoln Corsair GT

Big Recall

Ford issued more recalls than any other automaker in 2022, but one of the biggest pertains to the Lincoln Corsair. The Grand Touring version of the crossover was recalled over a crankshaft machining problem that can cause engine failure and even a fire in some instances.

Star Evolution

With Lincoln focusing more on its Star emblem as it moves into a new era of electrification, Ford Authority recently took a look back at the history of this iconic logo, which is a now century old.

No Electrified Navigator

Most expected the refreshed 2022 Navigator to launch with a hybrid engine option, but that wasn’t the case. As Ford Authority reported back in April, the luxury brand had its reasons for not offering an electrified version of the SUV.

Illuminating Change

As Ford Authority reported back in October, both the Corsair Reserve and Grand Touring are receiving two entirely new backlit appliqué options that make their first-ever appearance in the lineup, a welcome change for the luxurious crossover.
