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 brash new face, complete with the company's love or hate split-wing grille, and the revised rear-end treatment does look better to our eyes (i

A great many buyers fled from full-size body-on-frame SUVs to car-based crossovers in large measure to save fuel.

As the Poison frontman is wont to sing, every rose has its thorn. Indeed, if the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Bret Michaels sold at the 2011 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction was that flower, his latest consignments are as painful as pricked fingers.
Listen up, Lincoln fans, it's time to gear up for an onslaught of seven new or substantially revised vehicles by 2014. Reportedly included in that mix is an assortment of vehicles focused on sipping less fuel than one might expect of a typical Lincoln. Ford's global product chief, Derrick Kuzak, told Automotive News that as Lincolns undergo a redesign, the vehicles that emerge will be different from Ford's offering not only in technology, but in exterior design, too.

Automotive News is reporting that Lincoln is still planning to unleash a volley of seven new or substantially improved vehicles by 2014. Those of you with a calendar will note that the date is barely more than two years away, and so far, we haven't heard word one about the company's new product offensive. That is, until now. The Ford luxury brand has tipped its hand, explaining that its vehicles will receive significant revisions that include new sheet metal, altered wheel bases and new front an
The Lincoln lineup is in desperate need of a design intervention, and Automotive News reports that help is on the way. Ford product development boss Derrick Kuzak reportedly told dealers that Lincoln will receive seven new or refreshed models by 2014, including a little love for the long-ignored Lincoln Navigator.
Washington D.C. Council Chairman Kwame R. Brown finds himself in hot water over his choice of a work vehicle. According to The Washington Post, Brown ordered up a fully-loaded Lincoln Navigator L on the district's dime ahead of his January 2 inauguration, and more than a few eyebrows have been raised at the luxury SUV's $1,900 per month lease payment.

Of course, those dedicated navigators still offer some features you can't (yet) get elsewhere, such as the Darth Vader or Dennis Hopper voices for TomTom and downloadable vehicles for the Garmin Nuvi.
