2016 Lincoln Continental Interior Concept

Here we are, after a bunch of rumors, we can finally see in person, what the North Star vehicle has to offer, in a form of 2016 Lincoln Continental. This is practically, if I am not mistaken, a tenth generation of Lincoln Continental.


Review of 2016 Lincoln Continental

It started way back, in 1940’s. That first generation of Lincoln Continental was created for Henry Ford’s son, Edsel Ford. It was a convertible style, huge car. It had that external spare tire mounted on the rear end.

Throughout the history of this car, there were all kinds of designers, ideas and principles guiding those men and women behind the drawing board. But in the end, the final product never lacked comfort, luxury and power. Every time the new version comes out, it comes with something changed following the trail crumbs of global opinions and the needs of the car markets.

Everything was on the right path, but it was suddenly discontinued in 2002. All the plans were abandoned because of the global economy crisis, until this year. Suddenly it is like nothing actually happened in the past decade.

We already did some research about this vehicle in the past, and wrote about that. That little research of ours did nothing wrong, and we were right almost about everything, and yet, even with our imagination, we couldn’t have imagined what we saw, this week, on the New York Car Show.

Important thing to mention is that you shouldn’t believe everything you see on the Internet. There were some pictures going around, with the vehicle that should represent the Town Car version of 2016 Lincoln Continental but be assured that, even this is a concept car. Maybe in a couple of years we can expect the Town Car, but for now this is more than enough.

In this article, we are going to complete our previous review, with this new information we have.

2016 Lincoln Continental Exterior

I can actually imagine 2016 Lincoln Continental exterior to be a role model for future car designs. We already imagined that this will be a big car, with a modern design, but this…

As soon as you approach the car with a key it detects you and greets you with LED headlights and the North Star symbol illuminating the car like a spaceship, with style. Doors supposed to have no handles, and everything is automated. It uses some kind of E-latch system which should make car doors more silent.

That actually made the exterior design even more slick. Actually every single detail on the exterior, from headlights, taillights, huge 21” rims, metallic blue color and panoramic roof has been made to show the luxury of this car, even before we’ve been able to get in and actually see how it really looks from the inside.

I heard some some rumors about spy photos (with black new Lincoln Continental on them) , but personally I didn’t saw such pictures.

Like it wasn’t enough, 2016 Lincoln Continental interior amuses you to the point you want to turn on the ignition and drive to an unknown destination, just drive and never get out.

When I was little, I use to sneak into my grandfathers caddy and just pretend that I can drive. I wanted to do that in this car but that security was too big for me. I mean, one thing is to write about all that leather that we expected but this was ridiculous.

I had an impression of total commodity and freedom in the same time. There were no cheap plastic buttons, although there were a lot of buttons. It even has one control display on the central part of a dashboard.

Back seats were like a vacation in a presidential suite. On a push of a button, aluminum table automatically comes out from the central part, where you can place your champagne glasses. And the front seats have 30 adjustable positions! The seat is practically made to mold itself by the shape of your body. If that is not comfort, I don’t know what is.

2016 Lincoln Continental Specs

Supposedly Lincoln Continental 2016 specs are incomplete at the moment. Every time we asked about the power output or about the transmission, the only answer we got was:”It is a concept”.

So. yeah, information is still incomplete in some segments. What we know for certain is that it is going to use the exclusive version of 3.0 liter EcoBoost V6 engine. It is going to have an automated cruise control assist and pedestrian detection system.

They are actually saying something about the completely automated vehicle but for now, that kind of talk is still a sci-fi.

We expect the 9 speed automatic transmission combined with AWD, but every single person out there has its own opinion on that matter, so we are going to stay neutral in this one.

2016 Lincoln Continental Release Date and Price


And the production is scheduled to begin in 2016. But it is more than obvious that this car is far from a just a concept car, it is more like the car ready for production. Ford is not giving information about the 2016 Lincoln Continental Release Date and Price so easily. So, yet again, nothing is certain. We can expect that this kind of luxury could easily make the price to go sky high.

Only a day left until the mere possibility that we are going to see, in flesh, the new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro.

As you all probably know, the 2015 New York Auto Show is about to start, and GM announced the new Chevy Camaro to be shown very soon. They have even set the date, but this is an opportunity, at least for some teasing.

So, here is what we know so far.

Judging on the spy photos we all saw during this and the last year, General Motors tried to hold on to the concept used on the previous Camaro. There were some leaks about the aerodynamic flaws detected in the wind tunnel. The problem was the lower grille where there were insufficient space for air to flow as it should. So obviously decided to expand it.

The whole chassis is a bit shorter, rear overhands are smaller, side window is a bit curvier and the space between the doors and the rear wheels is smaller.

Front grille is smaller, hood has been slightly redesigned, light markers have been repositioned from the bumpers to the wheel arches and the rear is a bit raised.

There are also smaller vent holes positioned on the front, used to extract the hot air from the engine and thus, helping the engine area to cool down.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro Interior

Nothing is sure about the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro interior. We, and everybody else can only guess on the base of previous versions. We can assume that the dashboard is going to get the new look because the previous was too much. You should never make anything in your car on the bases of some movie’s theme. Ever!

We can expect a bit more room in the front, because the vehicle is narrower in the back. Actually anything can happen. They could even install the state of the art, bobble head dolls inside and nobody would know. That is how top secret their concept is.

Engine of 2016 Chevrolet Camaro

It looks like the GM has taken another approach to the design of 2016 Chevrolet Camaro engine. They will certainly change something about the soul performance of the engine, but the other thing is the body weight adjustment.

All muscle cars in US tend to get a new, more powerful engine after each release. This one is going to, on the top of all, lose a bit of weight. The rumor has it that everything, including some of the engine parts, is going to be made out of the new materials, mainly aluminum.

They also rebuilt 6.2 liter V-8 to fit the smaller package. Every part that engineers could make lighter, they did it. Pound per pound, they slowly trimmed one part after another. Resulting with much lighter vehicle, with better handling and suspension.

The complete engine lineup has not yet been released, but we can always speculate.
What we can all assume is that the current 3.6 liter V-6 is not going anywhere. It has 323 HP and 278 pound-feet of torque and that will be more than enough for a new weight ratio.

GM also announced that 2016 Camaro SS is going to have a V-8 from a new Stingray, but a little bit trimmed.

Release Date and Price

The official 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Release date is set for the 16th of May, this year. But maybe, in New York we are going to have some glimpses into the new model. Never lose your hope!

As the price is considered, it is probably going to be around 24,000 for the base model.
