Looking at Lincoln's at the auto show, they are decent cars. However, I think their problem is that they are really more a Buick than a luxury car, yet they are priced the other way. I hope they can pull it off, but I'm not real optimistic about it's future unless future product really improves or pricing comes down. The new MKZ ws nice, but not $50K nice to me at least. For that money, their are better choices from the German's and Asians (and that's before resale value enters the equation).

Actually, it was Washington who uttered that line in the commercial.

Yes, and it is a Honda commercial. And it is make believe. How easily people take their political corners in a millisecond. There is lots of scholarly analysis available on the Civil War era. Opinions might be muted some by reading a bit of it. Meanwhile, this is a thread about Lincoln Motor Company and Ford's plans for it. I remind you all of the obvious in the hopes that we can avoid a lot of political sniping about history and to get back to cars.

Thanks - there were a couple of posts made by someone with a fake email address who didn't get the message after I removed the first one earlier today.

I did not mean to become so divergent, merely point out Lincoln the man has nothing to do with cars. And that history may not be so kind to Lincoln motor company, especially in the area of current opinion.
Please don't elaborate. As to deaths, I could have said Iwo Jima was a bad plan, or that there are far more killed in cars than by guns. And that would have been inconguous as well.
I do hope Lincoln Motor gets it act together. I am disappointed that I am starting to hear noise penetrating from around doors or window seals, on 2010 28K miles, and that seems to be a historic issue with many Ford platforms.

Good God, yet another fine car nameplate being dragged through the mud! Why don't they call it what it is - A TOWN TRUCK!

Are they going to make an extended wheelbase XTS? One would think the Chrysler 300 would make for a natural limo conversion car as it still employs RWD.

You know, I think the trend these days is luxury small rigs. The kids don't want big gas sucking behemoths but they do want the gadgets.
For example, look at the MB CLA-Class.
The limo companies will just have to start stretching their own rigs. There's plenty of long Hummer limos around and I've seen a stretched Suburban or two.
