  1. Ford U.S. vehicle sales for August declined 8.4% YoY to 214,482. Nissan's sales declined 6.5%.
  2. Not the best rendering in the world, but it'll do. 2016 continental coupe. Coupe offered with 3.0 and 3.5EB The "Continental R" will be offered with a 5.2
  3. I am a tier two worker at FRAP. Been there just over a year. Was wondering if there is any truth to the following. Is a Lincoln car coming to FRAP? I heard tooling might start soon. Is there plans to expand the plant even more? Will there be another Cobra? Are we losing the Fusion? How bad is this mustang lunch going? Any chance a third shift gets added?
  4. Lincoln is taking the path less traveled as it attempts to revitalize its product portfolio. Unlike key rivals, the brand has no plans to field a flagship sedan or an entry in the increasingly popular entry-luxury sedan segment. To avoid stealing sales from Ford, Lincoln will refrain from offering a sub-$30,000 model to take on the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and Audi A3, Matt VanDyke, global head of marketing, sales and service for Lincoln, revealed to Edmunds. "We have to go up," VanDyke said. "We have a Ford brand that has phenomenal products in the $20,000-$30,000 range. Our goal shouldn't be to go down below $30,000 and compete with them. Our goal and transformation needs to be to really entrench ourselves as a true luxury competitor in the higher price points." Despite the need to move upmarket, Lincoln will not build a full-size flagship sedan modeled after the BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. "I think the definition [of flagship] is kind of changing," VanDyke commented. "So I don't think it is as easy today to say that a flagship is a [big] sedan, costing $100,000 that sets the tone for the rest of the product line. It is not as simple as it maybe was a decade or two ago." In a break from tradition, Lincoln's future flagship may not be its most expensive or largest model. The company points to Land Rover's small, style-focused Range Rover Evoque crossover as an example of the type of image-boosting vehicle it would like to launch. "One of the things we pay close attention to is what Land Rover has achieved with the Evoque," VanDyke said. "People are surprised to see the kind of statement that makes for the brand." VanDyke declined to divulge whether Lincoln's future flagship will take the form of a sedan or a crossover. Read more: http://www.leftlanenews.com/lincoln-...#ixzz356pGXjG1

    About Automodello, a Ford licensee

    Hello, My name is Jim Cowen and I am the founder of Automodello maker of premium specification, resin cast, hand-built, limited edition models in 1:43, 1:24, 1:12 and Crossovers. I started Automodello because I couldn't find a model of a car that I owned...little did I know that less than four years later we would win Model of the Year (twice), be the Official Model for Amelia Island and Concours d' Elegance of America (twice), and, secured a Ford license to use the Mustang 50 Years logo. It has been an incredibly challenging and fun ride so far. In December Automodello released our first Ford licensed product, the 1962 Ford Mustang I Concept which is also our first Crossover in both 1:43 and 1:24 scale. In March our 2nd release is the 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III in 1:24 which was never a promo-model, never a kit, and never released in a large scale. And we'll announce our 3rd Ford model, the 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 7-Liter Hardtop. Automodello as a brand is fueled by enthusiasts and I try to engage clubs around the world each time we select a new model. Many have been Ford-powered hybrids like the Sunbeam Tiger, TVR M-Series, Bricklin SV1, Intermeccanica Italia and Griffith Series 200 to name just a few so far. Thank you, Jim Cowen Diecasm, LLC | Automodello http://www.diecasm.com | http://www.automodello.com
  6. So I noticed on my build item list in ETIS it says less daytime running lamps. This makes no sense to me as I am ordering a reserve package. It appears even the base model has daytime running lamps am I missing something. Isn't the DRL's that line of LED lights in the facia that goes under each headlight????? Adaptive Rd-Following LED Headlamps Less Daytime Running Lamps Less Front Fog Lamps Signature Lighting Ambient Lighting-Int Premium

  9. Getting ready to take delivery of my MKZ and dealership is offering paint sealant? Is this a scam? Did anyone else get this option???
  10. Hi fellow Z enthusiasts, I wanted to start a new thread for all of us that are purchasing a new 2013 MKZ. Please post your pictures and other modifications that you have done to your MKZ. Looking forward to seeing all of your posts........ Thanks.......
  11. I have ordered a Lincoln MKZ Hybrid and noticed that in the trunk there is a 12 volt battery. Why does that battery exist and how does it interact with the Hybrid battery?
  12. Hello and welcome to what I hope is helpful information for those of you who are trying to track your vehicles. First a couple of administrative announcement. I don't work for Ford, Lincoln, or any railroad. All that I can share with you are my experiences and those of other bloggers as they tracked their cars. Also I am tracking a Lincoln MKZ from Hermasillo, Mexico, other cars built in other locations may not apply to this forum. Ok with that being said, the first part thing that you will need to track your car is the Railroad car that it is assigned to. Typically you can either find this information on Cyber D's Vehicle Tracking blog(make sure you read the rules carefully) or you may have gotten this information from the dealer or customer service. Once you have that and for cars built in Hermasillo, the first place to call is CSX. The mexican railroad company FerroMex is the actual carrier but CSX tracks FerroMex shipments. Now FerroMex will only take the car through Mexico, and will typically drop off the car at a Border state such as Arizona(Nogales) Here's how to track your ETTX railcar. 1. Call CSX at 1-800-235-2352 2. When prompted for location or weight, press "1" on your phone for location. 3. When prompted for the car initials, say ETTX then wait for the next prompt. OR key in 32-81-81-92 (for ETTX)(letter and position on your phone) 4. When prompted for the car number, say or key in your 6-digit ETTX car number 5. When prompted for next car say DONE. From Nogales Union Pacific picks them up and starts their journey in the states. UP handles most railroad traffic west of the Mississippi and CSX handles most of the railroad traffic east of the Mississippi. Now SMSGT, was able to find a way to track intermediate stops based upon some website that he found. I will let him add his instructions below. Posted 09 February 2013 - 06:37 PM Trying to figure out specifically what path our car is traveling on its way to IL, I came across this weather station map that you can use to possibly track your car's path. I noticed these weather stations were along railways and they also had codes like UP675; maybe UP stands for United Pacific. I took the last point where my car was and started tracing it out all the way to Chicago by only using paths listed as UP. Here is what I came up with and here is the link I'm talking about. I can't believe I'm doing this stuff on a Sat night; but it's fun. http://mesowest.utah...urrTimeChecked= Station Code Location EFAW UP308 DURAN UP303 VAUGHW UP968 DAVIS UP300 SANTA ROSA, NM NSTNOS UP355 ARVID UP273 TCMCRI UP441 TUCUMCARI, NM OBAR UP377 TEXAS LINE ROMERO UP453 KING UP458 DALHART KDHT DALHART, TX CHBRNL UR096 CONLEN UP296 STEVNS UP415 STRATFORD, TX TXHOMA UP424 TEXHOMA, OK GOODWL UP320 GOODWELL, OK GUYMON KGUY GUYMON, OK OPTIMA UP383 TYRONE, OK LIBERAL KLBL LIBERAL, KS SHMRCK UP407 HOBART UP332 DW9907 BLOOM DW9907 GRNBRG UP323 GREENSBURG, KS WELFRD UP430 PRATT MUN KPYY PRATT, KS TURON UP423 PRTRGT UP394 HUTCHINSON MUN KHUT HUTCHINSON, KS GRVLND UP324 MCPHERSON KMPR MCPHERSON, KS GALVA UP317 DURHAM UP304 HERNTN UP330 HERINGTON, KS LATMIR UP349 VOLLND UP428 MAPLHL UP360 TOPEKA, KS GRANTI UP250 BUCKI UP091 LINWDL UP054 FORLKI UP020 ETON UP911 KANSAS CITY, MO BUCKNR UP904 MYRICK UP926 BLOSER UP901 MRSHLL UP925 MARSHALL, MO BLKWTR UP900 BNVILE UP902 BOONVILLE,MO OVERTN UP928 ALGOA1 UP895 JEFFERSON CITY, MO BONML1 UP903 WSNTN1 UP936 WASHINGTON, MO GRSMT1 UP915 GRAY SUMMIT, MO EURKA1 UP912 EUREKA, MO GARD UP318 ST.

  13. Ford posted a story about paint quality and mentioned that the MKC launches in July. I have to assume that means this year. If so then we should see the production model at the New York Auto Show. http://www.at.ford.com/news/cn/Pages/VOME%20Goes%20Further%20Detecting%20Dirt%20Particles%20in%20Paint%20Leads%20to%20Superior%20Paint%20Quality.aspx
  14. In several reviews I have seen that the MLT 8 inch screen is poorly positioned(angled) and is quite the finger magnet. Has anyone with a MLT/MFT screen in a previous car ever put a screen protector on this screen similiar to what many do with their smart phones??
  15. So I have been thinking about putting a document together that goes through all the steps and efforts that many of us have gone through in this forum. As (hopefully) the wait for my car is starting to wind down, I thought I wonder how I can make someone's experience better than mine. I would like the websites that are accessible, how to track train rail cars, process questions like what is a build date, what is a VIN, what is ETIS, etc.... I was thinking about putting this all together and then giving it to my dealership but maybe I will give it to Lincoln instead. You guys that work for Ford and Lincoln, do you think that would be helpful? Do you think it would get used? Is my experience different than most because I was ordering a MKZ? What are your thoughts?
  16. I propose that there is strength in numbers. As such I am suggesting that when any one of us Pre-Orders actually gets our car, we list what dealer kick backs we received from this money that Lincoln gave to dealerships on our behalf. That way when a person runs into a dealership that is being stingy they have some ammunition to use. Just a suggestion, thoughts??

    Lincoln MKR Thoughts?

    I'm interested to see what everyone thinks what the Lincoln MKR should be like? What engine should it have as standard and should there be an optional one? Should it be FWD, RWD, AWD, etc.? Who would go for a manual transmission? What will the primary competition be? Other thoughts?
  18. Please see Borg's posting in Ford News Thread, he posted last night that Lincoln has placed a stop ship on all MKZ's. Not sure if this is true. Any Ford employees or Lincoln that confirm or deny please post here!
  19. Mark, Borg just posted last night and stated Lincoln has issued a stop ship on all MKZ's we need to find out if this is true or not can you please help
  20. Having never owned or Pre-ordered a Lincoln before, I was wondering if there is a standard process that the dealership uses to turn over a car to a customer. I would imagine this is probably a pretty dealership centric process one not governed by Lincoln. Anyone out there that has gone through this process or has recommendations that I should follow as I accept delivery of this new car??
  21. I am a long time fan of Lincoln and Ford, but have been driving mostly imports for the past 20 years. I would like to buy a large sedan. The MKS is a nice car, but I don't find it particularly appealing. I currently have a 2012 Audi A6, and have had zero problems. I am trying to justify buying a new Lincoln. A MKZ Hybrid would offer me better mileage. I did own a Fusion Hybrid, and liked it. I am also considering a Flex or a MKT. A MKT would offer more room, and make a great trip car, but the MKT seems to be unpopular. I picked up the MKZ brochure, but haven't seen one in person. I obtained an X-plan pin number (stockholder). I am hoping for someone to give me a positive push in ordering a MKZ. Any thoughts? Why did you order the MKZ without a test drive?
  22. Autoblog thinks it might be a new Lincoln: http://www.autoblog....he-ford-escape/ But maybe it's just an engineering version of Escape face-lift. Too soon, though.
  23. While we are discussing Lincoln topics: An article in today's Houston Chronicle notes that Group 1 Automotive is moving their southwest Houston Lexus dealership across the freeway into their recently purchased, larger Southwest Lincoln facility. Group 1's nearby Buick/GMC/Cadillac dealership is moving to the Lexus facility. There is no mention of the Lincoln dealership moving to the Buick (or any other) facility. In fact the article mentions that the Lincoln store employees have been offered jobs in other Group 1 stores. As someone rooting for Lincoln's revival, this is somewhat disconcerting news. I considered the Southwest Lincoln dealership to be a 'flagship' (at least facility-wise) with respect to Lincoln's new, tougher standards. The facility is very, very nice. Apparently Group 1 agreed. And it wasn't as if the location was demographically challenged; the facility is in an affluent, growing part of town. By my count, that means the number of Houston metro Lincoln stores is down from seven to four. Unfortunately two of the three which have closed are the two closest to me. http://www.chron.com/business/article/Southwest-Lincoln-to-close-and-become-Sterling-3802377.php PS I just checked Southwest's online inventory. They are down to just a handful of cars.
