What's Updated on the 2018 Lincoln Continental?

While everything was new on the 2017 Lincoln Continental, the 2018 model didn't see any changes in terms of design. The big news for this year though is that even more comes standard on this luxury sedan. Four packages that were previously only available as upgrades, now come standard on various trim levels. While the Select Plus package that includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, navigation, and SiriusXM Travel Link was optional before, it now comes standard on the Select trim. Newly standard on the Reserve trim is the incredible 13-speaker Revel audio system with the Black Label trim now automatically flaunting a panoramic sunroof, the Technology Package and Climate Package. The Technology Package includes features such as lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, head-up display, and automated emergency braking just to name a few. With the Climate Package, drivers enjoy heated rear seats, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and automatic high-beam headlamps.

On all 2018 Continental models, you'll find a 4G LTE data connection with an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot along with the addition of new color options like Ivory Pearl, Blue Diamond, and Iced Mocha. With the addition of standard features, plus more options for customization, the 2018 Lincoln Continental has to be the best year-model yet.


History of the Lincoln Continental

The Lincoln Continental nameplate has been used by Lincoln for ten generations of vehicles, currently spanning nearly 80 years. With the first Continental being built as a personal vehicle for Edsel Ford in 1939, the Continental would go on to become the predecessor to the personal luxury car segment. While being one of the best-selling Lincoln models early on, from 1961 to 1967, it was the only vehicle offered by the manufacturer. Also interesting is the fact that the Continental was the last American factory-produced vehicle with a V12 engine and was also the last produced four-door convertible.  After being renamed the Town Car in 1981, a redesigned Continental came back into the lineup the very next year.

Still popular, the 1998 Lincoln Continental got a complete redesign with a larger grille, more curves and an updated interior. New safety features were added in 1999, including standard side-impact airbags, and an improved audio system and more attractive wheels. The next year, even more safety features became standard on the Continental.

With various enhancements over the next few years, the Lincoln Continental would then be replaced by the LS and MKS in 2002, until it's return in 2017 as a four-door sedan fully equipped with an abundance of standard features like leather upholstery, parking camera, 8-inch touchscreen, and 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio. It also provided significant power under the hood with its 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft of torque.
