Owners of new Lincoln vehicles have voted Lincoln the top luxury brand, according to this year’s Vehicle Satisfaction Awards from AutoPacific. The awards are based on owner responses to survey questions regarding the overall ownership experience. “The Vehicle Satisfaction Awards look at the big picture,” said George Peterson, AutoPacific president. “They measure 49 separate attributes, ranging from interior comfort and styling to fuel economy and performance. They go deeper into the heart of the ownership experience.”
This year marks the 21st anniversary of AutoPacific, which identifies the most satisfying vehicles based on survey responses from more than 54,000 owners of new 2016 and 2017 cars and light trucks. “Our lineup of new vehicles and personalized ownership privileges is making a difference for our clients,” said Kumar Galhotra, president, The Lincoln Motor Company. “It’s changing the luxury experience.” This year, Lincoln regained leadership from Tesla in the premium brand category. Lincoln winners in the survey are as follows…
The all-new Lincoln Continental, the flagship sedan of The Lincoln Motor Company, has been named 2017 Best of the Best Luxury Sedan in the Wheels category of Robb Report magazine. The June Best of the Best issue is the magazine’s 29th annual edition; the Wheels section is divided among Sports Cars, Luxury Sedans, Grand Tourers, SUVs and Motorcycles.
The Lincoln Black Label Continental is billed as “Detroit’s Finest.” “Lincoln’s full-size flagship sedan doesn’t try to be sporty,” Robb Report says. “Instead it provides comfort and elegance, what Lincoln executives tout as ‘quiet luxury’.” Lincoln Black Label vehicles offer the highest level of design and service.
Thanks to the new Lincoln Continental turning heads everywhere it goes, along with offering a truly impressive luxury experience, it’s earned a second place spot amongst full-size premium luxury sedans in the United States. As always, Mercedes-Benz tops the list with 1,275 units sold. Ford’s Lincoln Continental comes in at a fairly close second with 1,061 units sold. Next up comes GM’s Cadillac CT6 selling 1,001 units. Following Cadillac is BMW’s 7-Series with 524 sales. The Volvo S90 sold 473 times. The new Genesis Motors brand’s G90 sold 397 units. The Lexus LS only sold 317. Even less than that, the Audi A8/S8 sold 216 units of the full-size premium luxury sedan.
Apparently, people in America have had their eyes opened by the impressive new products coming from both General Motors and the Ford Motor Company. Unfortunately for Lexus, the stale, old drivetrain in the otherwise excellent LS460 has been having a lot of trouble interesting buyers in the United States. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class never seems to have trouble but the Bavarian company must be concerned about the future of both the Lincoln and Cadillac as more and more people see their latest achievement on the road in their impressive stances.
