The '60s inspired sedan will come back with an exclusive price
A year ago, Lincoln did a limited — only 80 — the extension of Continentals with '60s-style suicide doors to stamp the nameplate's 80th anniversary. (The Continental made its debut in 1939 as an exceptional venture of Edsel Ford's.) Those vehicles, officially the 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition comes with a 6-inch stretch and tons of extravagance are packed into the enormous Lincoln with suicide doors, immediately sold out. That eager response provoked Lincoln to focus on a return plan. As guaranteed, Lincoln comes back with a Coach Door Edition of the 2020 Lincoln Continental.
The fundamental components are equivalent to last time. The sedans depend on the top-spec all-wheel-drive Black Label trim level and fueled by the 400-hp 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6. They're extended six inches between the axles, and the higher rear doors are rear-pivoted. The work again is being finished by Cabot Coach Builders in Massachusetts.
The rear-hinged doors hold the Continental's famous exterior door handles that are coordinated into the beltline shaping with electronic releases. When looking on the inside, a full-length center console separates the rear seats and includes a table, wireless device charging, sound and atmosphere controls, and tablet/notebook PC holders. The doors each house a Lincoln-branded umbrella, and the door sills are lit up.
Three exterior hues are offered: Chroma Crystal Blue, Infiniti Black, and Pristine White Metallic, with the last two accessible in a monochrome execution. Inside, purchasers have their decision of two themes: Alpine/Chalet or Jet Black/Thoroughbred.
A standard all-wheel-drive Black Label begins at $75,470 (before alternatives), yet the 2020 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition will begin at $115,470 (in addition to destination expense). The current year's manufacture run will be roughly 150 vehicles, and request books open today (Friday, Oct. 4) with deliveries planned for spring 2021.
