It wouldn't be a deal breaker for me either. Maybe because I haven't really seen one in live action, behind the wheel though. Has anyone actually driven or owned a car that had one?


I had it a decade ago on a 2006 BMW M5 and I really liked it. It was nice that you could keep your eyes on the road and see your current speed. Now, with an all-digital speedometer, you can also figure out your current speed pretty fast. Still much better than the old needle...

So, other than wheel base, leg room & shoulder room, the continental will be slightly smaller than the MKS?

Longer wheelbase but shorter and lower than an MKS.  The front overhang is reduced.   Quite a bit more rear leg room.  Much better proportions I would say.  I hope it is a bit lighter, too.

Yeah, I'm not upset at all about it being a few inches shorter and the longer wheelbase should help the ride. A little more leg room would be gladly welcomed! Have to see how the 'Lower" works out. Overall, I think it's a vast improvement and I'm hoping a little lighter also.

Hi Todd,

 

I would have another question for you:

 

Since it has now been officially confirmed that the Continental will have an optional CD-Player, I'm still curious where this will be located?

 

All I found so far is the 'Eject'-button on the center-dash but there is no disc-slot like on my MKZ.

 

will it be located in the glove-box or center-console? IMO, this is a bit unlikely if there is a button on the outside. Or could it be that the Navi-dash folds up or down once you hit the button and the player is behind that?

 

Thanks!

Does anyone know the tire size that the Black Label will ship with on the 3.0 LTTTubro motor with 20" wheels. I see the optional 245/40/20 are on the summer tire option. Will the tire size be 255/45/20 with all season touring type tires be the standard fitted tires on the 20" rims? Thanks

Well, to continue the 'HUD'-story:

 

Although it hasn't made it into the order-guides (yet), HUD is listed as an optional feature in the official 2017 Continental Owner's Manual.

 

So we will probably get it - the only question is: When?

 

http://www.fordservi...-CA_06_2016.pdf

 

Check out page 137!

 

The term 'HUD' is mentioned 30 times in the manual - IMO, pretty often for something they weren't initially sure to offer at all... ;)

Yes.  The slot is in a cubby on the console.  It is behind a door.  There should be room in there for a few CDs as well as the CD slot.

Back on the HUD, my current and last car I drove head a HUD.  My current vehicle is an Audi A7.  It is a deal breaker for me without one, because how I position my seat for driving there is no way to see the entire speedometer, even a digital readout, the steering wheel blocks the view.  If you have never driven with one, it is a simple matter of not knowing what you are missing.

 

I think it is foolish for a luxury car  maker not to offer this, reminds me of Porsche purists saying, better proclaiming, Porsche would never sell a single sedan or SUV, what a silly idea.  If you have a good HUD and use navigation, it can be invaluable for driving with a lot of truns.  Also if your HUD provides warnings from your infrared night vision like my Adi does, it can alert you to animals in the road many yards ahead  without ever having to look down at the dash and take your eyes off the road.  Invaluable safety feature that many car makers offer now, very disappointing that Lincoln cannot catch up with this technology, as I so much wanted to consider buying a Continental for my wife in 2017. 

 

If Lincoln does not come up with the HUD option soon, the looks like I am headed to Jaguar or Cadillac for my 2018 model.

Maybe it will be in the 2018.5 model year?

A good source told me HUD would be available in Job 2 - still 2017 models but later builds.  It is covered in the first printing of the owners manual so I would expect it sooner rather than later but I can't be sure.

 

By the way, we all have things that are important - even critical - to us and things that are not.  To suggest that "If you have never driven with one, it is a simple matter of not knowing what you are missing"  is a bit arrogant and suggests that everyone should think the way you do.   I don't blame anyone for demanding a particular item and going elsewhere to get it.  However, I don't need to be told what is important to me.

Greetings, gang.  I happened upon the Continental (Reserve) in our local showroom and haven't got it out of my head since then. I was ultra-impressed with everything except looking at things under the hood, which, to be fair, looked like typical Ford, and nothing special.

 

I too thought the car already had HUD.  Granted, I've not yet owned a car with it, but at this price point I'd expect it. That's one of the things that bugs me about Infiniti- they want to be considered upscale, but a few missing things (like HUD) have them miss the mark, competition-wise, but I digress. Sure hope Lincoln gets this implemented pronto...is a deal-breaker for me? time will tell. I so desire to test drive one. FWIW, I have driven the CT6 Platinum w 3.0tt, Various S-class and 7-series cars;  and granted the $14,000 delta between the Conti reserve and the CT6 Platinum (both cars fully-loaded); one can make a few concessions... the aforementioned underhood lack of finish and finesse being one.

 

Lincoln definitely has my attention with this car...which caught me by surprise.  Thanks.

Lincoln did not benchmark the Continental against S-class, CT6 or 7 series.   It just wasn't designed to compete in that class and the pricing shows that.   I suspect that if you test drive and compare a Continental back to back with an S-class or 7 series, it will come up short as one would expect given the price difference.  An E-class, 5 series or A6 would be more logical competitors to the Continental from a pricing perspective.   However,  I think it would do very well in comparison to the CT6 in spite of the price difference, depending upon your priorities.

Oh I'm not saying Lincoln benchmarked against these and I would agree.  I was simply giving a point of reference of other cars that I have driven, that's all. IMHO Lincoln has a pretty compelling package with the new Continental. I very much disliked the concept/car show vehicle, but the production car has turned out very nice. I do wish they would have used a new platform and not the FWD platform of the Taurus. That would really have been special- esp a RWD platform with non-transverse engine.  But they had to start somewhere...and did a great job.  Pics do NOT do the car justice. IMO.  

 

I cannot stress enough how pleasantly surprised I was when I saw the car at the showroom...whoops I reported my own post...nice..lol..anyway, I'm definitely considering one.
