    Video: Possible MKX concept teased as Lincoln confirms China expansion
    1397761320

    We've been speculating for years about the future of Lincoln. Some thought that Ford needed to kill the division like it did Mercury, while others saw the sales possibility in a brand with so much history. Ford has finally made a decision, and it wasn't what many people were expecting. Lincoln is launching in China this fall, with the brand rollout ...

    Video: Consumer Reports explains its disdain for infotainment
    1395357240

    One of the perks of reviewing all manner of cars and trucks is that we're exposed to all the different infotainment systems. Whether Cadillac's CUE, Chrysler's UConnect, BMW's iDrive or MyFord Touch, we sample each and every infotainment system on the market. Not surprisingly, some are better than others. It seems consumers have come to a similar ...

    Report: Consumer Reports says these are the worst new cars of 2014
    1393524000

    Consumer Reports has announced its annual list of worst vehicles, a cringe-inducing contrast to its list of top vehicles. Ignominiously leading the way in 2014 is Chrysler, which has a staggering seven models listed. Jeep nearly sweeps the small SUV segment by itself, with its Compass, Patriot and 2.4-liter version of the new Cherokee, while the only ...

    Chicago: 2015 Lincoln Navigator gets lots of updates, still not all-new [w/video]
    1391705880

    If there's one brand that could really use some fresh, all-new product, it's Lincoln. The MKC crossover is on the way and looks promising, but the just-revealed 2015 model year update of its fullsize Navigator would appear to stop somewhere short of being "all-new." This, despite replacing a product that's been on the market since 2007. Oh sure, there's a ...

    Deep Dive: 2015 Lincoln Navigator puts on a brave face, offers EcoBoost V6 only
    1390453260

    Lincoln has finally given its SUV a facelift after seven long years. Seven years is a long time. For the auto industry, though, seven years is an absolute eternity. Most vehicles receive clean-sheet redesigns within the span of seven years, usually getting a facelift of some sort after year three or four. Not Lincoln. Nope, believe it or not, Lincoln ...

    Opinion: Never mind the naysayers; Lincoln is worth saving
    1389373200

    In the case of Henry Leland, naming his new car brand after the first President he cast a vote for in 1864 seemed a jolly good idea, on paper. You should always be careful about the name you choose to give your new baby. The power of association can work in many ways, not always positive. In the case of Henry Leland, naming his new car brand after ...
