About Lincoln Continental

With a legacy that stretches all the way back to the late 1930s, the Lincoln Continental holds a lot of history that still permeates to this very day. The Continental holds the distinction of being one of Lincoln's most successful models and helped establish the brand as one of the top domestic luxury automakers in the US. Throughout its first few generations, the Lincoln Continental was offered primarily as a two-door sedan. Forty years later, in 1980, the fifth-generation Continental was made available as both a two-door sedan and two-door coupe and was constructed off of Ford's Panther platform along with the Town Car, Mercury Marquis, and Ford LTD. It got its power from a 4.8L V8 (later upgraded to a 5.8L V8) mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The turnaround for refreshment came quickly, and in 1982, the Continental was assembled as a smaller, four-door sedan whose base engine was a 4.9L V8 (although a turbodiesel inline six-cylinder engine was also added to the lineup).

The sixth generation of the Lincoln Continental was introduced for the 1988 model year. It was similar in design to its new platform-mate, the Ford Taurus, except with more luxury features and a more powerful powertrain. Under the hood, the Continental was equipped with a 3.8L V6 which produced up to 160 horsepower and 225 pounds-per-feet of torque. Two trim levels were made available: the Executive and Signature, with both offering a variety of options and amenities for drivers to choose from. This version of the Lincoln Continental was assembled until 1994. A year later, the seventh generation of the Lincoln Continental hit showrooms across the country. It featured a base 4.6L V8 capable of 260 horsepower and 265 pounds-per-foot of torque directed through a four-speed automatic transmission. Also new for this generation was the Driver Select System, which offered “variable-rate steering assist” as well as electronic adjustable shock absorbers that could be set to individual preferences based on road surface.

In 1998, the Lincoln Continental was updated with a smoother body shape, and such Continental parts as a new front-end grille, and wraparound headlights. Inside the model, improved wood trim accents were also displayed. The V8 engine was given a boost from 260 hp to 275 hp with a boost of 10 pounds-per-foot of torque. Two years later, the Continental's safety features were upgraded. Side airbags, child-seat anchor brackets, and an emergency trunk release became standard equipment. 2002 saw an optional Vehicle Communications System be added to the lineup, which included hands-free cell phone capability. 2002 turned out to be the last year of the Continental, as Lincoln went on to replace the model on the roster with the LS. Although no longer in production, the Continental is recognized for its contribution to the American fleet of luxury vehicles. The model went on to receive praise from around the industry and in 1999 was nominated to Car and Driver magazine's prestigious Ten Best List.

The Lincoln Continental is recognized throughout the world for its ultra-refined interior and classy demeanor. As one of the best-known titles under the luxury brand, the Lincoln Continental has been credited with helping keep the company name at the top of the luxury charts.
