Lincoln's website must have a glitch...it won't accept my Zip Code, or any other I try. Later!

I got into it earlier today, but when I clicked on the Technology Package, it just spun and didn't go further. Tried it a bit later, and when I clicked on Build and Price, there was just the Lincoln Symbol that just pulsed in the center of the screen, and it didn’t get to the page. Yesterday, I was able to complete Build and Price and go to Inventory with no issues.

Lincoln added some fuel to the tank overnight, so it was up & running this morning. A 2018 Select Plus identical to my 2016 priced out exactly the same...I'll wait for a look-see at the 2019.

Probably have a different trans and of course front end by then.
I'll try the site again in a little while. Last night, the 2018 Continental Build and Price was only working to get you to the page and show the options, but when selecting the options, it would just spin and not change the price and let you go to the next option.

Pricing the options I have on my '16, the '18 would be about $645 more, not bad.

With the availability of a completely new drive train and some interior/instrumentation options, I would expect a considerable boost in price for the 2019 over our 2016 versions. Hopefully the new transmission, likely a Michigan-built 8-speed iteration of the current 10-speed currently appearing in RWD F-150-Mustang vehicles, will have the reported rough shifting gremlins worked out.

Only downside of these high priced toys is what you can get on a two or three year trade value. Did the pricing on the '18 Continental, with the same options I have on the MKX plus the 3.0 engine, and it came out at $70,000. It was interesting that they took some of the options on the MKX from the Technology Package and put them into something called the Driver's Package.

If I am 'enchanted' enough with the 2019 MKX to purchase one, I'll stick with some equivalent of the Select or Plus at invoice pricing (low $40K). Fit, finish, NVH contol, and mechanics satisfy my driving needs/desires more than electronic aids, so the inflated pricing of many options is not on my shopping list.

I doubt there will be much increase in cost. In fact, the out the door cost will likely go down. Too much competition in the segment.

If you look on facebook today, there are lots of pictures of the 2019 MKC with the new front end. Looks good, and will likely be the look og the 2019 MKX.

I'm disappointed that Lincoln is playing design catch-up with this now-common style of grill rather than being an innovative leader of something fresh.

There are only so many grille designs that you can do on a modern vehicle. Not sure how ‘innovative’ they could really be. I think the new grille is much better suited to a luxury brand even if it is somewhat derivative.

I, for one, will miss the 2016 "Split Wing" grill.  It is unique and looks pretty darn cool coming down the road...

 

To me, the forthcoming "Mesh" (egg carton) grill is simply more of the same that most everybody else already has...

 

To quote the esteemed poet laureate Ray Davies, "I'm not like everybody else." Well, maybe I am, but I like to pretend that I don't want to be...

 

The grill change isn't a deal-breaker, however.  Still loving my 2016 Reserve with it's quiet ride and massaging seats!

It was the recognition factor of the Split Wing grill that led to my noting that it took 20 months after taking delivery of my MKX (October 2015) to finally see another MKX in the wild (on the island of Kauai). In most other cases, most current MY Lincolns I observed were MKCs distinguished from the MKXs by the former's clamshell hatches. With the oval egg crate grills of five (5) current & 2019 models, Lincoln will join about 15 other vehicles on the road in a contemporary parade of frontal ubiquitousness.

Being unique doesn't usually translate to sales volume.   I think the new grille will be more attractive to folks buying higher level trims as they compare it to other luxury makes and models.

Hard to argue looks everybody has a different opinion.  I personally like both a lot and I'm only partial to the new design because it's new.  The pic i have of the new MKX with new grill looks good, on the other hand MKZ took a step back imo.

The widely circulated pic of a MKX with the mesh grill sans camouflage is of a photoshopped 2016. However, it is a good representation of the mesh grill as it will appear on the 2019 MKX later next year.

I'm disappointed that Lincoln is playing design catch-up with this now-common style of grill rather than being an innovative leader of something fresh.

 

I wish they had left the split-wing grill alone.  It is different than most of what is out there, and therefore unique.

 

Arguably, it is also very cool-looking.

 

I don't consider the new "egg-carton" grill to be design catch-up.  It is more like design copy-cat...
