The Lincoln Motor Company is shaking up the luxury vehicle game with the release of the elegant 2017 Lincoln Continental. This exciting new model, which will be available in the United States and China this Fall, will offer unprecedented levels of craftsmanship and quality. Even the most demanding of shoppers are likely to be blown away by this exciting model when it arrives at Carman Lincoln, our Wilmington DE area Lincoln dealer.
“The Continental name has long been associated with the ultimate in Lincoln beauty and luxury. With the all-new model, we are focusing on creating more human, personally tailored experiences for our clients, providing what we call quiet luxury,” said Kumar Galhotra, president of Lincoln.
The all-new design of this model puts a modern spin on the old classic, featuring the new signature grille by Lincoln and capable exterior sculpting. Shoppers will love the brand-exclusive welcome lighting sequence. When sensors in this vehicle detect its driver’s key fob is approaching, LED lighting awakens in the lower-front fascia and the taillamps, and exterior door mat lighting helps illuminate any obstacles in front of your doors.
The exterior isn’t the only part of this model that got an overhaul for the new year. The 2017 Lincoln Continental near Wilmington DE at Carman Lincoln features a 3.0-liter V6 engine with twin turbochargers, that when provoked, can generate a projected 400 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft of torque. Complementing all this power is an available all-wheel-drive system with Dynamic Torque Vectoring that monitors each tire’s grip on the pavement and adjusts torque in real time to maintain ground hugging control around the tightest of corners.
A suite of driver assistance features are available to help keep drivers on the right path as well. Available adaptive cruise control takes the stress out of your daily commute by automatically maintaining a safe following distance from the car ahead of you, even in stop-and-go traffic. In addition, a new 360-degree camera system stitches images from four strategically placed cameras around the 2017 Continental to create a bird’s-eye view of your car, making maneuvering through traffic or crowded parking lots safer than ever.
The 2017 Lincoln Continental should be arriving in our area soon, so don’t hesitate to contact Carman Lincoln by calling (302) 324-4400 if you’re interested in taking a look!

You know that Lincoln makes stylish luxury vehicles, but did you know they’re some of the safest on the road as well? The 2017 Lincoln MKZ has recently earned the highest safety award issued by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the agency’s Top Safety Pick+ award. In order to be considered for this honor, a vehicle must have top ratings in several major safety tests, as well as an available crash prevention system that earns a superior rating.
Modifications to the front end of the 2017 Lincoln MKZ near Newark DE at Carman Lincoln are part of what qualified the MKZ for the award. These updates boosted its performance in the small overlap front test, which investigates how the vehicle performs in a frontal crash where only a small portion of the vehicle’s front end is impacted. In track tests at the IIHS, the MKZ successfully avoided collisions at 12 mph and 25 mph.
The full suite of innovative safety technologies found inside the 2017 MKZ at our Newark DE area Lincoln dealer were another big part of the decision to choose it for the Top Safety Pick+ award. These include driver-assist technologies like Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which uses a series of sensors to detect objects that pose a risk for collision up ahead. Should the vehicle sense a collision risk, it can alert its driver with visible and audio warnings, as well as pre-charge brakes to increase brake responsiveness.
The lane-keeping system is another advanced safety feature found in the MKZ. This feature uses sensors to detect lane markings, which it then uses to detect if your car begins drifting to either side. In the event that you are drifting, your car will alert you with light vibration in your steering wheel.
