2014 Lincoln MKZ

MKZ lead

Elvis did it in ’68 – maybe Lincoln will pull it off now. You know, make a comeback. No other automotive brand in recent memory was doing so well – in the ’90s – and then tripped over itself so badly (in the early 2000s) as Ford’s luxury brand. Lincoln actually outsold Cadillac for a…

2013 Lincoln MKS

Lincoln’s been on the mat for a couple of long counts now. Uppercuts to its status as a premium brand. Body blows to its curb appeal. The wounded champ sways and totters – his eyes blinded by blood, sweat. Will Lincoln be able to get back on its feet before the ref calls it? Ford…
