    I have to say, this is the first new Lincoln in recent memory that at a glance looks like a Luxury vehicle (much like you can pick a new Audi or Mercedes out of a sea of SUVs). The Aviator was on the right track, but this one looks great.

  2. Michael K

    First Ford of any kind that actually looks contemporary.

  3. JimL

    Red like communist red China, where Ford is building these while laying off thousands of Americans. Forget them.

    1. Plains States Patriots

      Okay, thanks for sharing.
      Go get your juice box and roll your rug out for your Noon nap, Kiddo.

    2. Ceejay Free

      Uh, before China it was made in Canada so, no.

    3. ifixc5

      This type of red color has been on many previous models, including my 2018 Continental, so definitely not new by any means!

  4. Tony G.

    Lincoln design and style leaves other brands lacking.

  5. Nonspecific Motors

    This is the hybrid engine the Maverick should have got, not that old weezy naturally aspirated 2.5.

  6. Gerald Holt

    Current Nautilus owner, just can’t buy a car from China!

  7. Dan

    Nautilus was never built in America anyway. It was built in Canada. And that plant is getting another vehicle. As far as not buying a Chinese vehicle. Everything else is made there! It’s just the American companies trying to survive in this current economy.

  8. Greg Carter

    This thing has a stance that leans backwards. It looks like it comes with factory, completely shot struts. Do the designers not see this? Weird.

    1. Bob W.

      Maybe that is the new trend. The Palisade and Telluride also look slant back to me. My 2016 Escape is a definite slant forward – like the current Explorer.

  9. Kyle Green

    The Nautilus looks great but, I think Lincoln is missing the mark by not having a All EV…

  10. Allen

    The reason china is making everything is because of good old American greed

    1. Plains States Patriots

      No argument, Bud.
      All these nay-sayers about vehicles made in China are the first to froth at the mouth when the WalMart releases something new——-also made in China.
      Their selective umbrage is nearly……deafening.

  11. Jo

    If this is made in China I have purchased my last Lincoln.

  12. ifixc5

    I’d say destroyed by Bidenomics!!! Former President was bringing most companies back to the USA and was making it affordable for large companies to thrive at home! This “green energy” hoax is killing jobs and companies too! I believe in climate change, just not what they’re saying is causing it!! It’s a big money making hoax!!
