Trims and Features
The 2018 Lincoln Continental offers comfortable accommodations for up to five passengers, including two sets of LATCH connectors for child safety seats, as well as almost 17 cubic feet of trunk space. Two-tone surfaces and real wood trim provide a sophisticated, traditional cabin aesthetic. Small item storage abounds throughout the cabin, so you can keep your most important items within easy reach.
The base model of the Continental, the Premiere, is equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with voice recognition, a 10-speaker audio system, and satellite radio. Leather upholstery and heated, power-adjustable front seats are also standard. Safety tech includes front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and a parking assist system, as well as the MyKey app to set speed and volume limits associated with specific keyfobs.
Choose the Select model to add a hands-free power liftgate and two rear-seat USB ports. The Reserve trim is equipped with 24-way power-adjustable, climate-controlled front seats, navigation, three-zone automatic climate control, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring.
The high-end Black Label trim is appointed with upgraded leather upholstery, an upgraded stereo system with HD radio, and a heated steering wheel. Drivers can choose between three distinct interior themes that affect the colors of the upholstery, suede trim, and wood accents. This purchase also comes with Lincoln's concierge service for ongoing maintenance, including complimentary car washes and free detailing every year.
The 2018 Lincoln Continental delivers the cushioned, composed ride you'd expect from a luxury vehicle. Drivers can choose from three powerful engines. The base 3.7-liter V6 paired with a six-speed automatic transmission provides 305 horses. Also available is a turbocharged V6 that ups the ante to 335 horses. If you choose an all-wheel-drive model, you can upgrade to the 400-hp twin-turbo V6. You'll get an EPA-estimated 17 city/26 highway miles per gallon with the base engine and 18/27 with the turbo V6. The twin-turbo model boasts an impressive zero to 60 time of just six seconds, made even more notable by this vehicle's formidable weight. Reviewers praise the brisk acceleration and lightning-fast responsiveness of all three powertrains.
The 2018 Lincoln Continental was named a Top Safety Pick+ of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the agency's highest designation, and has a five-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Lincoln Continental invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Lincoln Continental MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
