LINCOLN CONTINENTAL

In the fall of 2016, after a fourteen-year absence from the Lincoln model line, a new tenth generation Continental went on sale.  Previewed by a namesake concept car at the 2015 New York Auto Show, the 2017 Lincoln Continental is the successor of the Lincoln MKS.

The Continental is manufactured in Flat Rock, Michigan, alongside the Ford Mustang. This is the first Continental generation since 1958 that is not assembled at the Ford Motor Company Wixom Assembly Plant.

The tenth-generation Lincoln Continental is based upon the Ford CD4 platform. Shared with the Ford Fusion (Mondeo) and Lincoln MKZ, the Continental shares an extended-wheelbase CD4 chassis with the seventh-generation Ford Taurus. At 117.9 inches (5.7 inches longer than the Fusion/MKZ), the Continental is the longest-wheelbase Lincoln sedan produced since 1979 with the exception of the long wheelbase L Town Cars. While front-wheel drive is standard, this generation marks the first use of all-wheel drive on a Lincoln Continental, but depending on trim, all-wheel drive is either optional or standard equipment.

While sharing its fundamental chassis underpinnings with the Lincoln MKZ, the Continental is powered exclusively by V6 engines. As a standard engine, a 305hp 3.7L Ti-VCT V6, shared with the MKZ and MKS. As an option, a 335hp 2.7L twin-turbocharged V6 is available, shared with the Lincoln MKX. At the top of the engine lineup, the Continental is fitted with a 400 hp (298 kW) 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6; exclusive to the Continental and MKZ, the 3.0L engine is the highest-horsepower engine ever fitted to a production Lincoln vehicle.[citation needed] All three engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. When fitted with the 3.0L engine, all-wheel drive (with torque vectoring) is standard equipment.

This company is the best! Used their sprinters as a shuttle for my wedding back and forth from hotel to venue for quests. They were prompt, clean, professional, and very respectful! Would use them 100x over. The sprinters were so nice and luxurious as well.

Long Island Elite Limousine service has been our number one choice for professional transportation services for many years. After experiencing some really bad trips with SuperShuttle an Execucar a few years back, we realized that Long Island Elite is the best way to go when looking for reliable round-trip transportation to and from the airport.They’re always prompt, professional and courteous. We book them every December for an annual family trip to Cancun (usually just requesting a sedan). On a recent return from Cancun, we were expecting a sedan to meet us at the airport, and they upgraded us at no charge to a limo. What a thrill that was for our eight-year-old son.We recently booked them for our first trip to Europe. We requested a limo for the Europe trip and were surprised and delighted that they provided us with a Lincoln Navigator upon our return home. Very comfortable and roomy. Costs are a bit high, but we much prefer a transportation service over driving ourselves to the airport, looking for parking, dealing with shuttle buses, and any other inconveniences. Pricewise, they are not much different than Uber, and you get more personalized level of service from them. If you’re going to travel, you may as well do it right from start to finish.Thank you Long Island Elite for being a part of our vacation plans all these years. Looking forward to many more years of trips with you.

Used LI Elite for a vineyard tour. Matthew was our go to person who spent a lot of time helping me figure out which wineries would suite my group. He booked all the tastings for me. Jim was our driver and had a wonderful knowledge of the North Fork and the wineries. Even though we had a rainy day, my guests had an amazing experience and a great time. The day was more than I could have hoped for. I would not hesitate to use them again.

The level of professionalism from this establishment is unparalleled. I’ve dealt directly with Charlie on multiple occasions and his services are super accommodating and affordable. John, my driver is extremely courteous and could take a simple night out and make it into an unforgettable night of feeling like a star. Thank you guys for your repeated services!
