The Lincoln division of the Ford Motor Company manufactures vehicles at several assembly plants in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The assembly plant in Oakville, Ontario, Canada assembles Lincoln's two crossover vehicles, the MKT and the MKX. The site originally opened in 1953 and today builds crossovers for both the Ford and Lincoln divisions.
The popular full-size MKS luxury sedan is built at Ford Chicago Assembly in Illinois. The Chicago plant began assembling Ford products in 1924 and stands as the longest continually-operating Ford assembly plant. The MKZ mid-size luxury sedan is built at a Ford stamping and assembly facility in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. This plant is charged with production of most Ford mid-size vehicles, also including the Ford Fusion and the Mercury Milan. Originally a stamping plant, the Hermosillo plant expanded into assembly to provide a new global hub for the production of Ford's midsize vehicles. The plant has steadily expanded since opening in 1986.
The two remaining body-on-frame Lincoln products, the Navigator sport utility and the Town Car full-size sedan are assembled at the Wayne, Michigan, United States and St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada assembly plants, respectively. The Wayne plant specializes in full-size trucks. The St. Thomas plant will continue production through calendar year 2010, when the Lincoln Town Car and the related full-size Panther platform vehicles will be discontinued. In addition to using this guide, you can also identify the plant in which your Lincoln was built by looking at the VIN information plate located in the door jamb of the driver's side front door.
