Lincoln is considering a rear wheel drive flagship sedan, potentially based on the Australian Ford Falcon or the Ford Mustang according to two sources inside Ford. These two suggest that Ford has intentions of revitalizing the Lincoln brand to its former glory, not necessarily in a 70s Continental way, but as a relevant and contemporary showcase of Ford’s most advanced technology.
Ford is becoming increasingly flush with cash at the moment which has started discussions of a new Lincoln, in similar fashion, GM is interested in building a Cadillac with prices in the six-figure range.
Either way, the Lincoln project, if it happens probably will not take shape until later this decade.
