Lincoln to use alphanumeric names
I'm not sure what the driving factor behind this change is, but I'm not a fan of such names considering that the near-lux and luxury markets are already so crowded with pseudoacronyms. I think that one of Cadillac's few mistakes during its recent resurgence was failing to capitalize on the strengths of its many historic model designations (come on - the XLR is the perfect modern-day interpretation of the Eldorado), and I'd hate to see Lincoln go down the same path. Needless to say, the success of Acura and Lexus will not be replicated simply by adapting the same naming strategy.
