I read that this refresh was ready to go in 2010 for the 2011MY, but got shelved for some reason. And supposedly the full redesign is coming in 2016 for 2017MY, based on the new F-150 with an all aluminum body. This is just a hold over. I kinda like the front end actually. The rear is terrible and looks straight Durango. I hate that they couldn't change the fenders or rear 1/4 panels so the lights butt up to the exact same openings as before.

The Lincoln grill would look amazing if they executed it a bit better. The way it's shaped now makes it look piggish? For a lack of a better word.

Lincoln just...I don't know. Nothing they make has ever really pulled me toward it. This actually pushes me away. They can be better--a lot better. There's no reason at all why Lincoln can't and shouldn't be competing with the likes of BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Lexus, Infiniti, etc.

sorry but all the new lincolns in the showroom are the ugliest things in there. The focus, the taurus, the fusion, even the FIESTA…all look way better than any lincolns. They need to hire new designers.
