The 2017 Lincoln Continental bowed at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show sporting 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.

Staying true to the concept that debuted at the 2015 New York Auto Show, the production Lincoln Continental features the American automaker’s new signature grille and a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine providing plenty of performance. The new Continental will also sport all-wheel drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring, which shifts torque between the rear wheels, resulting in more confident handling.

Advanced safety features of the 2017 Lincoln Continental include Pedestrian Detection and a pre-collision system and like other Ford and Lincoln models, the Continental can park itself. One unique feature of the luxury sedan are the exterior door handles that are integrated into the beltline. They’re electronically operated and have a power-cinching feature that ensures they’re closed tightly.

The new Continental will be built in Flat Rock, Michigan and is scheduled to go on sale in North America and China this fall. Learn more about it by watching AutoGuide.com‘s first look video below.

    The Continental is a very nice car but this car is not bringing anything new to the table technically and while the interior is nice, the buttons on this car should be mostly brushed aluminum or metal, instead of dark plastic, for such a flagship. This car is caught-up to the competition and does not exceed anyone unfortunately.
