    Haha, yes the giant clock. I could never figure out why they even did that, especially in the early 70's when the engines still had respectible power output you would think they'd use a tach. Thank God they didn't do the clock like that on the Navigator. I definatly like the dash though, very elegant, very classy.

    I think the Escalades is very upscale with a Mercedes look about it. The Lincoln's? Looks like a truck interior with leather and wood. And the same stupid interior design throughout their lineup. I think the Zephyr is a good looking car with the same hideous dash as the Navigator. Sorry, Escalade all the way.

    I think the Mark LT has similar taillights.

    I think the clock was done to make it seem like the ultimate luxury car. You've got a 6x4 analog clock right behind your steering wheel, with the numbers in roman numerals. It reminds me of a grandfather clock in the smoking room in a victorian mansion. Exactly the look Lincoln was going for. I think a tachometer would be considered asinine in a car like that, stock anyways. Most owners couldn't care less about the engine RPM, and that was always the thought behind all american luxury cars before about 1986 or so, with the introduction of the digital tach in the Toronado, Eldorado and Riviera.

    Anyways, if I ever get a Mark IV, I'll try and get a custom made tach to fit where the clock was.

    not impressed. those taillights are right out of the 60's....just plain bad. Interior is still crappy. Looks like not much has changed since our 04 Aviator...

    Well, then, let's hope the same people that liked the 80's luxury cars will like these. Because if they think they are cutting into the Escalade's demographic at all with this old think design, they're quite mistaken.

    For all the competition between the Camaro and Mustang, the Mustang always sold better for whatever reason. It's going to be the same for the Navigator and Escalade.
