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.

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.

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, 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.

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...
