The Luxury Sedan Elegantly Redefined-Powerful & Poised in the 2017 Lincoln Continental

It's not often that a vehicle comes around that so clearly embodies luxury and refinement, a stately, classically styled and yet modernly appointed executive sedan. But remarkably good looks don't take the place of substance in this fine sedan; instead, it heightens the sense of luxury while delivering impeccable driving mechanics-quite the way a luxury vehicle should. The 2017 Continental offers three excellent engine options: a base-level 3.7-liter V6, which offers up 305 horsepower, while you can opt for the available 2.7-liter Turbocharged V6, which is rated at 355 horsepower, then there is the most powerful engine of the bunch, a 3.0-liter Twin-Turbocharged V6 capable of a mean 400 horsepower, though it should be noted this engine is only available in the AWD configuration. All trims are front-wheel drive (FWD), though all-wheel drive (AWD) is an option on each trim, which is good news for those of us in Mayfield Heights, Cleveland, Kent, Mentor, and Middleburg Heights who want to be prepared for those unpredictable Ohio winters. The following trims appear in order of magnitude, with each trim incorporating the previous one's features and building from there:

  • Premiere
  • Select
  • Reserve
  • Lincoln Black Label

The Main Event: 2017 Lincoln Continental VS 2017 Cadillac CT6

  • Price isn't everything, especially for those customers who are looking for the best luxury sedan on the market, but it's certainly important, especially when the price differences is just under $10K, as is the case with the entry-level trims for the 2017 Lincoln Continental and the 2017 Cadillac CT6.
  • While each luxury sedan offers a few engine options, it's the 2017 Continental that starts you off right; the Continental's base-level engine is a 3.7-liter 305-horsepower V6, while you'll pay more in the Cadillac CT6, but the engine you get will be a measly 2.0-liter 265-horsepower inline-four-nothing to sniff at on its one, but when you consider that the Cadillac will charge you nearly $10K more for a less powerful engine, it certainly raises questions.
  • While both cars seat five comfortably, in luxury appointment through and through, if you want to weekend in the 2017 Cadillac CT6, you might be sorely disappointed at the amount of cargo room you're left with. The 2017 CT6 only offers up 15.3 cubic feet of trunk space, while you'll see quite a bit more in the 2017 Continental-16.7 cubic-feet of cargo room to be specific.
