    What does Lincoln have in pipeline for LINCOLN besides th eMKC Concept?

    Granted they need a New SUV but Do they have anything else in the pipeline like a Hybrid
    2 seater sportscar?

    • Lincoln will not be coming out with a niche, limited production vehicle like a hybrid 2-seater sports car. That is the last thing they need. They need vehicles that will sell what is considered "volume" for a luxury brand. This is why they are coming out with the MKC. The small CUV luxury market is up 200% since 2009. It is a hot market, thus Lincoln is introducing a vehicle for that hot market.

      As bstaurrey said, Lincoln is coming out with more vehicles over the next few years. Each one will be unique and not a "rebranded Ford." Like the MKZ vs. the Fusion, the new MKC shares no body panels with the Escape. It has a different suspension than the Escape (vehicle track is 1" wider too), and has an exclusive drivetrain offering; 2.3L EcoBoost engine. Also, the rear hatch is a unique single piece, wrap around design that Ford had to find a hydroformer in Canada to produce as it cannot be manufactured with standard stamping methods due to the complex shape. The interior is also unique to the MKC. The days of rebanding died with the current MKX/Edge. All new Lincolns will be unique designs like the MKZ and MKC.

      The MKC introduces the new version of MyLincoln Touch with added knobs and buttons.

      • Missed this one before, from Nov., about the new lIncolns, espcially the MKC-- "Also, the rear hatch is a unique single piece, wrap around design that Ford had to find a hydroformer in Canada to produce as it cannot be manufactured with standard stamping methods due to the complex shape.

    • I think they have 4 new models to roll out in the next few years including the new SUV...but I don't know much about them.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
