Merged both threads and moved them to the Lincoln Motor Company Discussion Forum.

GE2 platform midsize Ford and Lincoln BEV are confirmed. We just don't know where Ford will build it. Initially, it was supposed to be a new building at Flat Rock, then it was moved to Ohio; then to Cautitlan with Mach E, but now seems likely to be in BlueOval City in Tennessee. 

 

The new plant in TN is supposed to build F series trucks.  I know Ford is hiring a bunch of engineers and HR people at Flat Rock.  Perhaps they plan on resurrecting the twice-cancelled investment for that plant.

I hate that front end, it looks like they stole it from KIA/Hyundai,  also where the hell is the bumper?

The last MKZ and Connie looked great compared to this.

LOL....Apparently, they have subscribed to the "big ugly-assed grill" syndrome that is plaguing the industry at the moment.    Lincoln has an uncanny knack for making a fairly expensive vehicle look no more upscale than a low priced vehicle.   It would also be nice if they could decide on some specific styling cues and be consistent with them as new models are introduced.    Other upscale makes do a good job of that.   Lincoln has been all over the place with grills, C-pillars, rear end treatments, etc.

The one thing Lincoln's consistent with is being inconsistent! They come out with a design theme and then change to something else just a few years after it's been applied to all the models. Unfortunately, Lincoln hasn't had a distinctive look since the '70's and '80's.

The other item is the display going across the dash, I bet that would be expensive to replace.
