Private and public school transportation is a potential niche market operators may consider since it can drive business and brand growth.
The livery versions are based on the Continental Premiere edition, which has a 300-hp, 3.7-liter V6 engine with 280 ft.lbs. of torque coupled with a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
A team from Lincoln Limousine & Livery Vehicles debuted a production version of the Lincoln Continental on Feb. 29 during the International LCT Show in Las Vegas. LCT will have further coverage in the May issue.
Because the Lincoln Continental is not on sale yet, Ford/Lincoln still must devise a rebate program, to be released this fall, according to a Lincoln team panel presentation at the Show on March 1. Production Job 1 starts in July, with the first Continentals shipped to dealerships in August.
The Lincoln Continental will be built on one wheelbase only, and not be available for cutting and stretching under Ford’s high-quality QVM certification program.The MKT Town Car chassis will remain available for QVM stretch and hearse models at least through MY 2019.
The Continental will come with Ford’s extended warranty of 4 years/150,000 miles and a livery warranty similar to those of other fleet vehicles. It will include extra care covering 113 components. Premium care will be available for an additional charge, covering 1,000 components.
The special Livery Package (500A) contains equipment specific to the limousine industry. An optional livery technology package includes features such as an auto-dimming rear view mirror, BLIS (Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert), and a lane keeping aid.
