Lincoln Teases A Mysterious New Vehicle, Debuts Tomorrow

The Los Angeles Auto Show kicks into high gear tomorrow and Lincoln has just released a baffling new teaser video.

The 10 second long clip doesn’t reveal much but it confirms the automaker will introduce something on November 28th. That’s not much to go on but the company hinted the model is going to “make a lasting impression.”

Lincoln is keeping coy on specifics but previous reports have suggested the company is working on an all-new Aviator. It’s possible the company could preview the model with a concept as the vehicle is slated to be launched in 2019.

The mystery model will be shown alongside the 2019 MKC which features a new front end that resembles the Continental and MKZ. The facelifted crossover has also been equipped with new LED taillights and an updated infotainment system.

Under the hood, the two engines will be available. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder now produces 245 hp (182 kW), while the optional turbocharged 2.3-liter engine develops 285 hp (212 kW) and 305 lb-ft (413 Nm) of torque.

The 2019 Lincoln MKC will go on sale next summer and the model will be available in three different Black Label themes.

We have a feeling this vehicle is going to make a lasting impression. 11.28.17

    I don’t think Cadillac is to worried about the new Navigator, but if this is a New Aviator based on the next generation explorer platform it could have some real competition.

    • Samantha Davis

      I think Cadillac is somewhat worried about the Navigator. They recently made an offer to take thousands off the price of the Escalade to anyone trading in a Navigator. And so far, the journalist reviews are showing the Navigator to be a serious contender in the full size SUV market. Lincoln is finally getting things right and is on the upswing.

      • Rocket

        I contend more than a little worried. They realize they blew their chance to add IRS and put a serious hurting on Lincoln, opting instead to carryover the solid axle. They’ve already announced their next generation Escalade will finally have IRS, but they need to minimize the damage in the meantime. And even with cash incentives there will be damage.

        • donald seymour

          You preaching the true now, Rocket.

      • TheBelltower

        “Lincoln is finally getting things right and is on the upswing.”

        I would love to believe that. But Lincoln has had decades of false starts for me to believe anything is going to change now. It’s a brand that’s been living off of 60s nostalgia for a half century.

        • SgtBeavis

          The proof will have to be in the sales. So far the Conti seems to be doing rather well. I predict the Navigator will do pretty good. IMO the biggest competition to the Navi is the Expedition Platinum. Both cars are just exceptionally well done.

      • Mark S

        Escalade sales will say otherwise.

    • Merc1

      What? Cadillac is in panic mode, already giving even bigger discounts on their warmed over Chevy.


      • Mark S

        Better than a warmed over Ford. The Escalades sales will tell the tale.

        • Navy P. Morroccan ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          The all-new Lincoln Navigator decimates the Escalade w/out a doubt.

          • Mark S

            Sure it does…You must be a bubble-head.

          • Navy P. Morroccan ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Are you?

        • Karl

          Time will tell GM fanboy!

          • Mark S

            Not a GM fa at all.

    • Navy P. Morroccan ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Cadillac is worried about the Lincoln Navigator based on several reasons: the brand is offering $5k incentives for current Lincoln Navigator owners to trade-in their existing Navigator vehicle and offering 0-percent APR or lease a new Escalade for $899.00 per month since this all-new Lincoln Navigator has debuted.

    • Benjamin B.

      Escalade is junk. It’s too utilitarian for a luxury SUV. Navigator offers a much more premium chassis. Also Lincoln/Ford makes much more torque from the EcoBoost 3.5L V6 than Cadillac/GM makes from its 6.2L pushrod LS V8.

    • Benjamin B.

      Both the Escalade and Navigator will end up in the ghetto or trailer park in 15-20 years time anyway.

  • mick

    Isn’t the mystery just a refreshed MKX?

    • Rocket

      No, it’s a concept car. Most likely the preview of the 3-row Aviator, slated to replace the woefully outdated and disturbingly homely MKT.

      • mick

        Interesting, Automotive News lists the debuts for Lincoln at the LA Show as being the refreshed MKC and MKX.

        • Rocket

          Refreshed MKC for sure. I think the mid-cycle MKX will debut in Detroit or Chicago. Lincoln has a concept on the plans for L.A., and the timing is right for the Aviator Concept.

          Edit: of course, those “plans” could be BS. We know the MKX refresh is happening for MY 2019.

          • mick

            Yeah, it’s just a rehashed MKX now with a “real” name. Auto News usually has the goods as they are part of the early preview circuit. I used to attend these media previews as well. Of course, you are always under an embargo not to say anything in advance of the official release. The NAIAS media previews will be happening shortly, nothing like a nice week in the snow shuttling between manufacturer events. I do admit, I miss getting the advance info but I don’t miss editors breathing down my neck for slideshows or dumbing down articles for the benefit of the masses.

    • Rocket

      You were correct, Carscoops was mistaken … it’s the refreshed MKX renamed the Nautilus.

  • Dennis Scipio

    I bet it’s a three row midsize crossover to slot between the MKX and Navigator.

    • MarketAndChurch

      LA being a mostly SUV autoshow, that’s most likely the case.

  • Charles Willem Alexander DeLan

    could be a new lincoln sports coupe concept, or the new lincoln mkx or rather a new lincoln aviator concept

  • po

    Thanks for the video of pavement.

    • Bash


  • Shane

    I know it won’t happen but we need a Mark VIIII. Time for an upscale and plush Mustang.

    • Zandit75

      Is that supposed to be a Mark IX(i.e Mark 9?)?? Or have you got too many I’s there?

      General rule of thumb when using Roman Numerals, only three of the same letter in a row.

      • Shane

        I tend to not think while posting and hungover.

        • Zandit75

          Haha, I wish I could give you more likes!!

    • MARK 10.

      • Сафиуллина-Мохамед Рамазанов

        And also as Toyota had Mark X

        • Tumbi Mtika

          Unfortunately they don’t sell that here in the US.

  • Christian Wimmer

    11:28:17… and I thought that was the Nürburgring time of this mystery car. 😀

    • KareKakk

      11 hours…? Seems legit.


  • SgtBeavis

    Bring back the Town Car! Call it “The TC, by Lincoln” if you have to. Note the comma there, it’s important. You need a pregnant pause for a car like that.. 😉

    Of course I agree. it’s most likely to be the Aviator, but wouldn’t it be nice to see Lincoln throw us a curve ball with a performance sedan based on the Mustang platform?

  • Steven

    hoping this one has a name like Continental/ Navigator instead of the terrible MK system they have been using. i will forgive them if they drop a new Mark (IX?) coupe

  • john1168

    They showed us a shadow and a tire. WTF kind of teaser is this???

    • Bash

      Yep, they would have made a black screen with a date in the middle and underneath written the model code name coming soon, that would be even more creative.


    • Bash

      Actually, you might be right.

  • David Spaans


  • jsz00

    Based on the height of the shadow it’s going to be another SUV

  • Benjamin B.

    New Aviator will not use a four cylinder engine. It’ll most likely use a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 like the Ford Explorer Sport and Platinum models.

  • Rocket

    Introducing the Nautilus (refreshed and rechristened MKX).
