2019 Lincoln Continental for Sale in Hawthorne
The auto industry is seriously good at seeing what's successful and copying it over and over again, so it can be a bit of a challenge to find a model that actually stands out from the crowd. With a beautiful blend of modern and retro styling, lashings of comfort and technology and a fabulous ride, is the 2019 Lincoln Continental such a vehicle? Let's take a look.
It's not unfair to suggest the latest Lincoln Continental is a modern interpretation of much of what's been good in the past with large luxury sedans. Although the size, broadness, chrome and swagger of the Lincoln Continental are as familiar as an old friend, there's nothing old-fashioned about the way this car looks or feels. It's always a big call for any manufacturer to bring back a nameplate as iconic as this, but Lincoln has delivered a car with the kind of grown up, imposing and prestigious styling which totally lives up to the name.
Interiors are where luxury models mostly tend to succeed or fail, and here in the Lincoln Continental it's definitely a case of this one succeeding. Some manufacturers have introduced a big slice of sport sedan to their full-size luxury offerings in recent times, but Lincoln has chosen to stick with what most of us associate with large luxury sedans; size and luxury. The cabin is comfortably spacious and the seats adjust in more ways than most of us can imagine. The seats themselves generously bolstered, but if you sit in them for any length of time you'll find there's more thought been put into their design. Instead of just stuffing them to look and feel comfortable initially, they're suitably supportive.
Engines and performance
Lincoln treats buyers to a choice of three powerplants in the new Lincoln Continental. The entry level engine seems anything but as it's a more than acceptable 3.7-liter V-6 pumping out 305 horsepower. The middle of the three is a 2.7-liter twin-turbo boasting an impressive 335 horsepower, and the top of the range unit is a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 putting 400 horsepower at the driver's disposal along with all-wheel drive. A vehicle like this needs a decent engine as it weighs-in at more than 4,200 pounds, but the 3.0-liter twin-turbo still manages to get the car to 60 mph from a standing start in around six seconds.
Safety features and equipment
This is where the Lincoln Continental has been upgraded for the 2019 model year. In the past it has been extra to have automatic emergency braking, active lane control, blind-spot monitors, and adaptive cruise control on your Lincoln Continental. However, for the 2019 model year all this advanced safety tech has been wrapped up by Lincoln into the Lincoln Co-Pilot360 package, and it's now standard across the lineup.
