It looks very nice. When I got my XTS I never even really considered Lincoln because, while I did like some things about the MKZ, the MKS is boring...the Continental would have at least gotten my attention - hope they do convert to that new grill style

Well it's about damn time. Too bad about the six cylinder engine, though. Ford chokes at the finish line yet again.

Puts me in mind of recent Bentley cars. I'm a little undecided on the grill design, though I like the fact that it's a large grill. The interior looks like a private jet or something. A lot of class.

I have not been a big Lincoln fan, but when I have been attracted to Lincoln it has always been called a "Continental." But then I have not been known to love all Cadillacs either, most of the Cadillacs that I have owned have been called Sevilles.

Lincoln has produced some of the Great cars of the last 60 years of the Twentieth Century. In each case the car has carried the Continental nameplate. I hope Lincoln is successful in bringing yet another true "luxury" car to the market place, ..... and let's hope that Cadillac does the same.

I like the idea of keeping a car's technology as inconspicuous as possible, especially in a luxury car. Beautifully, yet elegantly conservative, styling combined with top quality materials and finishes, and quiet isolation from the surrounding noise pollution are the key elements I would look for in an owner driven/chauffeur driven car.

Very Lincoln-ish and, if it does go to production, will eat "Cadillac" alive in the luxury car market.
You have got to be kidding.

Needs bigger wheels because who wants a comfortable ride. And all the chrome on the dash should be great for blinding glare.

Absolutely dead-pan serious. Cadillac is building cookie-cutter crap nowadays.

When the STS gives up it's Goodbye GM.

Of course, you can always poke through the aftermarket wheels threads in CTS.

I have to agree with Sub. But we will have to see what Cadillac comes up with in the next couple of years, but if I had to make a decision today it would not be for Cadillac.

I do not consider my CTS coupe to be cookie-cutter crap but that's my opinion and you have yours.

And your STS - it' was far from cookie cutter, right?

Correct. There were precious few F55 Seville Touring Sedans made compared to the total FWD STS production. Glad you noticed.

Of the 229,462 FWD N* STS built over the model run, 12,303, or about 5% were F55. "Cookie cutter" enough ?

(of course that discounts the qualifier "nowadays".)

So, a mere suspension option on a mass-produced vehicle that shares it's underpinnings across it's brands other models, plus more from other makes, is all it takes to disqualify... you should probably consider the big picture before you throw the term COOKIE CUTTER around. By your definition, my Crown Vic isn't cookie cutter either (oh dear).

Yippee!

Ah, but it wasn't an option. ALL STS from 01-15-02 through the end of production in 12/03 were F55 cars. All 12,303. :yawn:

As far as your Crown Vic goes, I guess there was also a pretty fair number built - but if you lay your hands on a decent "police" model that sort of takes it out of the mainstream, no ?
