Lincoln: Continental, MKZ
Well, it was good while it lasted. The Lincoln Continental had only been around for four years in its latest iteration. Nonetheless, the company decided to kill off its flagship sedan in favor of more popular (and profitable) crossovers. Ford’s luxury arm, like the Blue Oval itself, went all-crossover this year as the comfy Continental rolled off into the sunset.
Right behind it, the Lincoln MKZ also bowed out this year. Its mainstream cousin, the Ford Fusion, also met its maker, while this Lincoln sedan also marked the end of the road for the brand’s old alphabetic naming scheme. Now, if you want a Lincoln you’ll have to choose either a travel-themed Corsair, Nautilus, Aviator or Navigator.
