Well then, GM must suffer the same affliction, if you look at the Cadillac CT6 that was roughly comparable, if a bit more expensive, you see the same fate. Unimpressive as the Conti’s sales numbers were, the CT6’s were worse. And it is no more, either. I drove both before I bought and there’s no question in my mind which is better but neither American car is in production while the imports thrive. Go figure.
I'd say more like the ATS. But sure, GM made some big moves as well. Big shocker for me was they moved on from the CVT-S. But at the end of the day, they still produce sedans. So does Chevy.
Back to the subject, this continental doesn't drive like the Lincoln sedans of the past. You feel connected to the road. The car is very responsive. Refined if you will. That handling comes with a cost. No set of tires is going to turn this into a crown vic. The new continental doesn't make a very good sale rep car either. Where you would see a lot of the MKS on the road.
