Lincoln execs don't see a rear-wheel drive niche model on the company's horizon. They first want to focus on the brand's rejuvenation through mainstream vehicles and increased sales.

2017 Refresh Brings New Interior And Optional 3.0L Twin-Turbo V6

What's not to like about high horsepower, torque vectoring, and a return to physical knobs and buttons for interior controls?


Ford is issuing six campaigns to bring in nearly 382,000 vehicles for repairs across North America. They include potential problems with the Windstar, F-150, Fusion, Taurus, and more.


Ford is issuing two recalls that cover a total of 442,300 vehicles in North America. One is for 422,814 cars for a possible power steering fault, and the other is for 19,486 units of the 2015 Mustang with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost for high underbody temperatures.


Ford is expanding its door-latch recall to an additional 156,000 vehicles in North America because the doors might not close, or could open while driving. The affected models include certain years of the Fiesta, Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, and the majority are in the US.


Ford is recalling 591,177 vehicles from multiple model lines in four separate campaigns. The largest problem affects the possibility of fracturing bolts in cold-weather states.

With gas prices down, that means green car sales are likely to decline as well. TrueCar's TrueSavings report has the evidence to support that idea, with one electric car and two hybrids among the top five in January for the biggest transaction price savings compared to MSRP.


Lincoln and Matthew McConaughey are back together with a pair of new commercials, this time working on behalf of the MKZ and MKZ Hybrid. The spots, "Balance" and "Diner," are new, but the formula is the same - cinematic, contemplative, channeling more than a bit of True Detective.

"We're really trying to simplify for the customer on their terms." – Paul Bucek


It's no secret that Lincoln has received short shrift from the Ford Motor Company for years, and former CEO Alan Mullay even wanted to kill the whole thing off when he ran things. Today, things appear to be trending in a different direction. Fresh investment has helped enable a sizable marketing push for its well-regarded MKC compact crossover, a couple of awards for the company and plant the seeds for a major expansion into China. While the situation is still in the early going, it looks like L


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is opening an investigation into the 2010-2012 Ford Fusion, Fusion Hybrid and Lincoln MKZ, the 2012 MKZ Hybrid and 2011 Mercury Milan because the agency has hundreds of complaints of electric power steering failure in these models.


Ford has announced a major recall of 850,000 vehicles from model years 2013 and 2014 due to a problem with the "restraints control module."


It has been two years since Lincoln first announced its plans to expand into China, and the first models destined for sale in the giant automotive market just came off the boat in Shanghai on September 10. It's going to be a few weeks before Chinese buyers actually have the chance to get behind the wheel, though.


Ford hybrid customers apparently have very short memories. With two EPA fuel economy reratings in the last year, sales of the C-Max, Fusion Hybrid and Lincoln MKZ haven't been too terribly dented, Ward's Auto reports.


Lincoln fans might want to give incoming Ford CEO Mark Fields a pat on the back for having a hand in saving the brand from the chopping block last year. He's among the people spearheading the rejuvenation of the division away from its stodgy image to appeal to younger customers.

So with the compact premium crossover now finding its way into dealers, why aren't you seeing its likeness plastered on billboards and barraging you on television? It's because Lincoln is "holding some powder."


In recent years, there have been a lot of dire pronouncements made about Lincoln's future, or a lack thereof. But Ford's premium marque is like the Rocky Balboa of the auto business; every time the company seems ready to go, it comes back for more. Apparently, that dogged persistence is paying off, because the industry analysts at AutoPacific have put a big check in their win column with their newly released 2014 model year vehicle satisfaction survey. And despite recent enmity for its seemingly
