    Lincoln Continental Named Best of the Best

    Lincoln Continental Named Best of the Best in Robb Report’s June Edition

    DEARBORN, Mich., June 3, 2017 – The all-new Lincoln Continental, the flagship sedan of The Lincoln Motor Company, has been named 2017 Best of the Best Luxury Sedan in the Wheels category of Robb Report magazine. The June Best of the Best issue is the magazine’s 29th annual edition; the Wheels section is divided among Sports Cars, Luxury Sedans, Grand Tourers, SUVs and Motorcycles. The Lincoln Black Label Continental is billed as “Detroit’s Finest.”

    “Lincoln’s full-size flagship sedan doesn’t try to be sporty,” Robb Report says. “Instead it provides comfort and elegance, what Lincoln executives tout as ‘quiet luxury’.” Lincoln Black Label vehicles offer the highest level of design and service.

    Other Best of the Best categories include Style, which covers men’s fashion, women’s jewelry, and men’s and women’s watches; Journeys, which covers hotels, resorts, vacation homes, cruises, trains, spas and golf; Leisure, which covers dining, wines, spirits and cigars; Home, which covers furnishings, art, auctions and electronics; and Wings & Water, which covers super yachts, sailing yachts, crossover boats, yacht concepts and private jets.

    I really think Lincoln's Quiet Luxury is going over well. We thought Buick was going to be the "Domestic Lexus" but it's becoming clear that Lincoln is taking that title instead. Continental vs LaCrosse? Of course, no contest... I realize the Continental isn't the be all, end all of luxury sedans - but it's a great leap forward for Lincoln and things are definitely look up for the brand...

    I have never heard of that magazine.

    This is very outdated thinking.

    XTS sales have tanked lately... I wonder if the Continental has something to do with that?

    The XTS was due for an update. It's been on the road since 2012, hasn't it? Is it not normal that sales would be kinda tanking at this point?

    I don't think it's suppose to be a very youthful car. It's not intended for young people. That's what the 400hp MKZ is for. The one thing I noticed is that it looked small from afar. As I got closer I was clearly able to see it's a big car. But from far away - not so much. In any event, here's some more good news for Lincoln...

    Maybe doctors and dentists are the target audience......

    Let's hope there's more good news coming for Lincoln.
