|CELEBRATING THE CENTENNIAL OF LINCOLN’S LUXURY AUTOMOBILES|
Long the Arbiter of Elegance in America, Lincoln Marks its Centennial as a Successful Automaker This Year.
Begun in 1917, Lincoln Motor Company initially built the Liberty engines that powered the aircraft of World War I. After the war, a transition to automaking led to financial downturn, but Ford Motor Company came to its rescue in 1922, purchasing the company and quickly righting it.
Under the guidance of Edsel Ford, Lincoln soon established a reputation for luxury, offering custom bodies on Models L and then K. The Lincoln Zephyr and Continental followed and the luxury offerings continue to this day.
On May 30, 1932, as the Indianapolis 500 was about to get underway, spectators learned they were to witness an unexpected sight: the pace was to be set by Ford Motor Company President Edsel Ford driving an elegant new Lincoln KB Murphy Sport Roadster.
Marking a century of Lincoln, the brand celebrates its storied past as it prepares for an exciting, electric future.
For a century, Lincoln has focused on forward-looking innovations, while maintaining its core values that keep the brand’s products fresh and desirable.
The introduction of the fourth-generation Navigator in 2018 was instrumental to an upturn in the direction of the brand. A combination of modern luxury and innovative technology, including the debut of 30-Way Perfect Position Seats in the all-new flagship SUV, elevated first-class travel for families, kicking off a resurgence that Lincoln continues to advance today.
The momentum continues with the introduction of new products and services. This year will see the launch of a new Navigator, elevating the brand’s sanctuary again with signature new features, including ActiveGlide hands-free driver-assist technology.
Lincoln is the luxury automotive brand of Ford Motor Company, committed to creating compelling vehicles with an exceptional ownership experience to match. For more information about Lincoln, please visit media.lincoln.com or www.lincoln.com.
