2017 Lincoln Continental Pricing Released
Lincoln finally revealed the price for its 2017 Lincoln Continental, which a lot has been anticipating for. According to the company, it would cost $45,485, including a $925 destination charge. For a sedan as space generous as the Continental, that’s pretty neat, right?
This price is several thousands higher than the starting price for a standard MKS, which the Continental replaced. Still, it is below most rivals in the segment. Cadillac’s CTS is even more expensive as it has a starting price of $46,555.
There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to the aesthetic appeal of the Lincoln Continental. In fact, it is being offered in one of four trim levels—Premiere, Select, Reserve and Black Label.
There are also three V-6 engines you can opt for, with one of these unique to Lincoln. The base unit can crank up to 300 horsepower with its 3.7-liter V-6 engine. Customers can also choose a more powerful 335-horsepower turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 engine or the Lincoln-exclusive turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine that can power up to 400 hp.
That $45,485 price tag will get you the Continental Premiere with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine and front-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive, if you opt for that, will cost you an additional $2,000 across the board.
According to reports, the Continental will go on sale starting this fall. Around 40,000 potential buyers have already made their interest known since the car debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.
Lincoln’s release of the Continental is triggered by the fact that the company also believes the buyers are now looking for big sedans that offer both comfort and luxury. This is clearly evident in the response to the releases of the Audi A6 and the Mercedes Benz E-Class—both the main competitions of the Lincoln Continental.
