Lincoln Continental Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award

It comes as no surprise to our team at Randall Reed’s Planet Lincoln in Spring, Texas (serving The Woodlands, Cypress, Aldine, Conroe, Houston) that the all-new Lincoln Continental’s earned a top safety pick award.

The luxury sedan, available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection system, garnered the highest award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) due to its available crash prevention system, along with the good rating achieved on crash tests and its optional adaptive LED headlamps.

The Lincoln Continental (with Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection) avoided collisions in track tests at 12 mph and 25 mph. The system’s forward collision warning component also meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration criteria.

The car’s available adaptive LED headlamps earned a good rating, providing ample lighting on a straightaway and on most curves. The headlamps use high-beam assist, a feature that automatically switches between high beams and low beams, depending on the presence of other vehicles.

Vehicles qualify for a Top Safety Pick+ if they have good ratings in five crashworthiness tests – small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints – plus an available front crash prevention system that earns a superior or advanced rating, and good or acceptable headlights. The Lincoln Continental delivered on all aspects.

Lincoln Makes MSN Auto’s ’15 Most Beautiful’ List

There are many gorgeous cars on the road. Lincoln makes a number of them. That is nothing new and MSN Autos agree in a recent article called: 15 most beautiful American cars of all time. So, guess what brand had multiple cars to make the list? Yes, that’s right… LINCOLN.Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 7.21.02 PM

According to the author, Kirk Bell, “there’s a big difference between a pretty car and a timeless design that transcends mere automotive beauty to be considered a work of art.” With that in mind, MSN Autos combed through history to identify the 15 of the most beautiful American vehicles. Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 7.21.32 PM

Only one 21st-century car made their list. “We wanted to include newer cars as well, but cars of the past few decades didn’t measure up, and today’s cars have yet to pass the test of time,” Bell wrote.Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 7.21.53 PMPlanet Lincoln invites you to come in and seeing the beauty that lives on in each and every vehicle from the all-new MKZ, MKZ and MKX and Navigator.

Planet Lincoln Houston

The Lincoln Motor Company today unveiled the MKX Concept at Auto China 2014 in Beijing.

The team at Randall Reed’s Planet Lincoln was watching for this unveiling from the Lincoln Motor Co. during Auto China 2014. Lincoln revealed the Lincoln MKX Concept. MKX Concept hints at a global SUV that will become the third of four all-new Lincoln vehicles due by 2016. It is designed to capture the attention of consumers worldwide.

It features well-balanced proportions that are accented by wide shoulders, a sleek, sloping roofline and 21-inch wheels create a gracefully, yet lean presence.

“Great emphasis was put on the proportions of this concept vehicle,” said Andrea Di Buduo, exterior design manager of the Lincoln MKX Concept. “It’s a very emotional, athletic design. Its horizontal lines and defined undercuts are gracefully integrated and very sophisticated, yet convey a powerful and dynamic presence.”

LincolnMKXConcept_03_HRLED headlamps with strips of dynamic LED signature lighting, which light up sequentially as part of Lincoln’s updated approach detection are the cornerstones of a reimagined Lincoln split-wing grille
