The upcoming Lincoln Continental is already garnering strong interest around the nation, according to the latest information from Automotive News. Around 40,000 people have already expressed interest in the upcoming luxury sedan, which is set to become the flagship of our lineup at Brown Motors Ford Lincoln.
“People are asking a lot of questions about the car,” said Dan Marks, chairman of the Lincoln National Dealer Council. “This is the most buzz I’ve seen in a long, long time.”
This is great news for the Lincoln brand, whose popularity has been steadily on the rise over the last few years. Last year, it topped 100,000 sales, in large part thanks to the MKX crossover and Navigator SUV.
It remains to be seen how a new sedan will perform, but given that this is the Continental we’re talking about, the nameplate that practically defined Lincoln in its early years, we have little doubt that it’ll do well. The 40,000 people who have already requested their names to be on a list are a testimony to that!
