Lincoln Continental to Start at $45,485

Pricing for the new Lincoln Continental has leaked out before an official announcement. 

According to The Truth About Cars, the new Continental will carry a base price of $45,485 including destination and delivery. That price will get you a 3.7-liter V6 sending all 300 of its ponies to the front wheels. That puts the Continental’s base price about $7,000 more than the MKS that it replaces and puts it inline with Cadillac XTS while undercutting the Acura RLX by a large margin.

On the other end of the spectrum, The Ignition Blog says that a fully loaded example of the Continental will sell for about $72,000, though they say that a fairly well optioned Continental will be available from $65,000. They also report that the first 1,500 customers to order the car will get a framed rendering of the Continental signed by designer David Woodhouse.

These high-end versions of the car will come with a twin-turbo V6 engine under the hood, sending 400 horsepower to all four wheels.

Official detailed pricing and information for the car should be revealed very soon. Pre-orders will begin to be accepted today while the first cars should begin to arrive at towards towards the end of Q3 of 2016.
