2019 Lincoln Continental OVERVIEW

Like the original model that graced roads back in 1940, the 2019 Lincoln Continental puts styling and luxury first. While the Continental takes a page from Lincoln's classic vehicles, it's still modern, refined, and comfortable. Performance, especially when compared to German offerings, leaves something to be desired, as the Continental is purely American in the way it doles out luxury. While other automakers are moving away from sedans, Lincoln has brought back the Continental for at least another year.

What's New for 2019

Major news for the 2019 Continental is the addition of Lincoln Co-Pilot360 as standard. The safety suite includes automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, lane keeping assist, and a rearview camera. Adaptive cruise control is also included on every trim.

Choosing Your Lincoln Continental

Lincoln offers three powertrains for the Continental. The base engine is a 3.7-liter V6 that produces 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The next step up is a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 that pumps out 355 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. A 400-hp, 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that makes 400 lb-ft of torque is also optional. All engines are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is available for $2,000 on all trims but the Black Label.

Fuel economy is best for the 2.7-liter, rated at 18 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 21 combined, according to the EPA. The base 3.7-liter V6 comes next with ratings of 17/26/20 mpg (city/highway/combined), while the 3.0-liter V6 is the least efficient with ratings of 16/24/19 mpg.

With comfort high up on the Continental's list of strengths, the sedan offers some upscale features that allow passengers to make the vehicle even more comfortable for their drive. Lincoln's Drive Control gives drivers three settings to choose from, which include Comfort, Normal, and Sport. Different settings alter the vehicle's suspension and steering. The Continental's available Perfect Position Seats have up to 30 adjustments and can be outfitted with heated and cooling functions, as well as a massage function.

There are four available trims:


Pricing for the entry-level Standard trim costs $47,140 (all prices include the $995 destination charge). The Standard trim comes with the 3.7-liter V6 and front-wheel drive as standard. Standard exterior trim features include dual chrome exhaust tips, adaptive bi-function HID headlights, LED daytime running lights, 18-inch wheels, power-folding and heated side mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, active grille shutters, and LED taillights.

Going with the Reserve brings a twin-panel moonroof, rear-seat electronic temperature control, tri-zone automatic climate control, a heated steering wheel, a windshield wiper de-icer, a head-up display, the Revel audio system, and 24-way heated and cooled front seats as standard.

Black Label

The range-topping Black Label is priced at $71,040. Standard features include premium LED headlights, 20-inch wheels, the Perfect Position seats, and Venetian leather seating. The Rear-Seat Amenities Package returns, and there are three available "Themes" for the Black Label trim to choose from. They don't add any money to the sedan's price tag, but they do bring unique touches.

The Chalet Theme includes Silverwood appliqués, a Alpine/Espresso leather interior, Alpine Venetian Leather specialty seats, an Alpine Alcantara headliner, and Espresso with Alcantara carpet and floor mats. The Rhapsody Blue theme includes aluminized fiberglass mesh appliqués, a Rhapsody Blue leather interior, Rhapsody Blue Venetian leather specialty seats, a Rhapsody Blue Alcantara headliner, and Rhapsody Blue with Alcantara carpet and floor mats. Finally, the Thoroughbred Theme includes Chilean Maple appliqués, a Jet Black and Belmont leather interior, Jet Black Venetian Leather seats, a Jet Black Alcantara headliner, and Jet Black with Alcantara carpet and floor mats.

CarsDirect Tip

While we normally don't recommend spending $70,000 on a car, the 2019 Lincoln Continental Black Label is the one that really stands out to us. The ability to choose between three unique themes really highlights the Continental's luxury side, and being able to get into a fully-loaded model that doesn't have any optional features also simplifies the buying process. Sure, $70,000 is a lot of money to spend on a car, but the Continental Black Label feels like it's worth the money.
