U Spy: Can You Guess Which Model is Hiding Under the Camouflage?


We love it when our readers fill in our email box with pictures of camouflaged prototype models that they spotted out testing on and in some cases, even off the road.

Our newest scoopster is Marco A. who nabbed these shots of a four-door sedan model draped in camo at downtown Chicago. "I don't know what car is it but maybe you guys can figure it out," Marco told us in the email.

We think we have pinned down the model, though we would not dismiss the possibility that it could be a new and perhaps never before seen version of the vehicle we believe is hiding behind the black plastic wraps.

So, how about you take a close look at the pictures Marco sent in and tell us which model you think it is.

Hat tip to Marco A. for the photos!

Ford something ?

Lincoln MKZ with Ford steering wheel?

Jared East said... »April 17, 2012

I think so too. Im pretty sure it some kind of Ford because of the door combo buttons on the b post.

Lathan said... »April 17, 2012

i gotta go with jeff on this one.  i definitely think it is a new lincoln mks.  the grill, headlights, and exhaust tips look almost identical to the new mkz

Is it too big for MKS...could it be some sort of Continental replacement.  But woudl guess Ford of some sort.

john1168 said... »April 17, 2012

This is an easy one!  Lincoln MKS!  No question!

Johnny & Kelly said... »April 17, 2012

It looks like the 2013 Ford Fusion to me. And like others have said, the key pad on the door pillar is all Ford, as well as the Ford oval on the steering wheel.

It is Lincoln MKS based on several things pointed about by many.  Look at the b-pillar. That is Fords keyless entry. The exterior mirrors are like the new MKZ. The grille is like the new MKZ.  The little window around the exterior mirrors is like the MKZ. The Ford steering wheel is a dead giveaway. The wheels are also very Lincoln and due the the fact MKS was up next to be redesigned due to its recent facelift.  The led lights in the front bumper  are like the new MKZ. That car is wide and large by today's standards. Look at the exhaust tips on the rear too.  The KIA K9 has already been exposed too.

Give credit to Lincoln for at least having a recognizable look now.

Definently a Lincoln of some sort... please let it look like their concept cars

Lincoln MKZ

Swederacer1 said... »April 17, 2012

I want to say the MkZ, it does not look that large to me.  Both MkZ and MkS have been shown though, so why the camo?  Being caught  in Chicago it makes sense it is the MkS, they are built here in Chicago.

definitely a Lincoln. got that new bar design

Jeffrey Varghese said... »April 17, 2012

2013 Lincoln MKZ

Nilreps said... »April 17, 2012

its clearly not the lincoln mkz, its the new edsel thunderbird.

mmu said... »April 17, 2012

it's the MKZ

EHM613 said... »April 17, 2012

The grill certainly says Lincoln but the design of the side mirrors, tailpipes and B pillar say GM (maybe Impala).  I'm sooo confused.

Kaveh said... »April 17, 2012

yeah, was going to say Lincoln

Blarg! said... »April 17, 2012

The keypad on the B-pillar is a dead giveaway of FoMoCo.

zool said... »April 17, 2012

Dunno but just saw many people predict Lincoln MKS

Can't Think of a Better Name said... »April 17, 2012

Is this Lincoln's custom made funeral car or the brand itself?

Jim said... »April 18, 2012

Easy Lincoln MKZ, mirrors match.

Kavehus said... »April 18, 2012

MZK. trust me.

Lincoln because the grill

A.M. said... »April 18, 2012

Its the new MKZ

dubfun said... »April 18, 2012

Yep.  Rumors have it that the big surpise Ford is preparing for 2014 is four doors.  The typical Mustang demogrphic is getting older and they want something more practical and comfortable.

MiralDesai said... »April 18, 2012

I'm thinking Cadillac but I know very little about American cars. Judging by the comments it clearly shows. 

Reader said... »April 18, 2012

Definitely a Lincoln due to side mirrors and the new retractable roof as seen on the new 2013 mkz

Abraxeses said... »April 19, 2012

I guess it is Acura TL 2013 or 14!!!

Anthony said... »April 19, 2012

2013 Lincoln MKZ sedan

Fastone16 said... »April 19, 2012

It is the MKZ. Why? Because if it was an MKS, its' enormous roofline should dwarf that of the TSX behind it and the Malibu in front of it.

Dylan See said... »April 20, 2012

It has a ford style steering  wheel.

Andrew Dietsch said... »April 20, 2012


Abraxeses said... »April 21, 2012

you guys are right it must be a Ford or Linclon, because of the pass code 'touch pad' on driver's window frame!

Saji905k said... »April 21, 2012

How about new Volvo-S80?

Nelson Auto News said... »April 21, 2012

Cadillac CTS.

Sushi Ninja said... »April 22, 2012

What about the grill? It's not the CTS, it's a new Lincoln.

Sushi Ninja said... »April 22, 2012

Yes but it also said it was to look like the Evos concept and have a grill that wasn't copied from Lincoln.

Just_call_me_barney said... »April 23, 2012

buick??? most likely buick not lincoln 

Josh Ouellette said... »May 02, 2012

MKZ or redesigned Taurus

Carl Dnumb said... »May 05, 2012

posibly is a chevrolet  impala 2013

chiayi said... »May 10, 2012

Definitely Ford Fusion because of the tiny triangle A-pillar window and the wing mirror shape. Besides, it can tell also from the shape of the exhaust pipe and tail skirt. Furthermore, the lighting area of the headlamp shape matches the Fusion.

Rick Ravelo said... »June 21, 2012

Lincoln MKS.
