Lincoln is prepping the Continental for the 2019MY, more than two years after it officially broke cover in Detroit.
According to CarsDirect, pricing will reportedly start at $47,140, or $985 more than the current model. Yet, the hike is justified by the addition of more equipment. The base 2019 Lincoln Continental is said to gain several driving assistance features, such as automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control, all of them part of the Co-Pilot360 package.
Going up the range sees the Lincoln Continental Select become $1,830 more expensive than before, with an MSRP of $56,830. This grade doesn’t appear to have added anything extra apart from the aforementioned driving assistance equipment.
Lincoln will be asking at least $60,705 for the 2019 Continental Reserve. The $4,925 price hike is justified by the addition of the Technology Package, with its HUD, park assist and Climate Package, featuring a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and windshield wiper de-icer. The former was a $4,215 option, whereas the latter used to cost $850. This spec also gets a Revel sound system, with 13 speakers.
Finally, the top-of-the-line Continental Black Label will carry a $4,630 premium. Priced from $71,040 for the 2019MY, it adds the Technology Package as standard, along with the 30-way electrically adjustable seats, an option that used to cost $1,500.
