Lincoln did discontinue the Continental long-liver. The last vehicle rolled off the assembly line at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant on October 30, 2020…in fact, officially.
The news about its phasing out appeared 2 years ago. The company planned to discontinue the model at the end of its current 10th generation. Lincoln confirmed the fact in July 2020.
The Lincoln Continental marks the death of sedans under Ford Motor Company in the USA. It has joined the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ based on the same CD4 platform. Alas, today’s consumers prefer crossovers and SUVs.
The Lincoln Continental was launched in 1940, and since then it has thrice come and gone. The current generation arrived as the 2017 model after a 14-year absence, and very soon became the flagship of the brand.
Later on the Lincoln Navigator has replaced the Continental as the luxury flagship model in the brand’s lineup.
The Lincoln Continental won’t have a replacement. In the near future, the company is not going to make another sedan.
