  2. Ownership isn't cheap. No monthly payments. No insurance payments. No maintenance bills. No registration renewal fees.

    No More Cars

    I think luxury sedans will always be desirable, but I doubt we'll ever see mainstream sedan sales rebound. Mainstream buyers are always going to buy the biggest, roomiest vehicle they can afford. The sketch posted above looks very promising. It looks like a liftback.

    Where the heck are all the new Lincolns?

    It all depends on where you live. Mercedes-Benz and BMW continue to dominant the Gulf South region. Lexus used to be fairly ubiquitous before it got hit with an ugly stick. I did see a new Aviator today. New Orleans finally has a Lincoln dealership again after an 8 year hiatus, so I should see more of them around.
  5. I hope they replace him with Galhotra.

    2021 Cadillac Escalade Debuts

    The interior is a big improvement. Very inoffensive exterior.

    Very nice!

  9. Medium Wedgewood Blue was a pretty color. Thinking back to '05, the only standard features that separated the Eddie Bauer from the XLT was leather and dual-zone climate. And maybe keyless entry. Everything else was cosmetic.
  10. It was a popular trim, too. I don't think today's buyers care for the two-tone paint as much. The local dealers seem to order mostly monotone Lariats now.

    Lincoln faced a lot of peer pressure to appear youthful and avant-garde, especially after Cadillac's debut of Art & Science. Now they've discovered Lincoln's old conservative formula (Quiet Luxury) is still very desirable.

    Gerry McGovern considered using the split-wing for the MK9 Concept, but they feared it would look radical. There's a sketch of it somewhere on the internet. The egg-crate is classic Lincoln, in my opinion. Polished or chrome egg-crate might look good with the current grille design.
