Lincoln has announced pricing information for its brand new 2017 Continental flagship.
The Continental lineup will be broken down into four trim levels called Premiere, Select, Reserve, and Black Label, respectively. Premiere starts at $45,485 once a mandatory $925 destination charge is factored in. Select begins at $48,440, Reserve starts at $54,840, and Black Label sits on top of the Continental hierarchy at $63,840.
Premiere and Select models come standard with a 3.7-liter V6 engine that sends 300 horsepower to the front wheels via an automatic transmission, while Reserve and Black Label trims benefit from a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 rated at 335 ponies. All-wheel drive is a $2,000 option all across the board, and the top two trims can be upgraded with a 3.0-liter V6 that makes a solid 400 horsepower at an extra cost.
The list of standalone options includes a panoramic sunroof, a CD player, 20-inch alloy wheels, and 30-way power-adjustable front seats. Buyers also have a long list of option packages to choose from.
The 2017 Lincoln Continental will begin to arrive on dealer lots in the fall. It’s aimed right at the Audi A6, which starts at $46,200 with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 252 horsepower and front-wheel drive.
