11 Best 2017 All-Wheel Drive Sedans

5. 2017 Lincoln Continental

The 2017 Lincoln Continental is certain to turn heads everywhere you go as people scramble to decide what kind of beautiful AWD sports car they are eyeing. The Continental debuted in 1939 and its most recent run was from 1981-2002.  It was then meshed into the Lincoln Town Car Line and has now been re-introduced.  Its masculine yet sophisticated design resembles one of a Jaguar or even a Bentley. In 2015 the Continental replaced the Lincoln MKS. One of Lincoln’s slowest selling and longest cars.

The following trims are available in AWD:

  • Premier starting at $46,720
  • Select starting at $49,925
  • Reserve starting at $59,340
  • Black Label starting at $68,340

The Premier and Select come standard with a 3.7L Ti-CTC V6 engine. The Select also has the option to upgrade to a 2.7L GTDI V6, which the Reserve comes standard with. The Black Label comes standard with a 3.0L GTDI V6 engine with 400 HP, which is also available in the Reserve.  Dual chrome exhaust tips, LED headlights, a chrome mesh grill, wood trim, and leather wrapped accents are just a few of the standard luxury features you’ll find on this AWD option.

Lincoln’s Black Label line has revolutionized the shopping experience offering added benefits to consumers. If you show interest in purchasing one of these cars, Lincoln will bring the sales rep to your home or office for first-class convenience. Consumers get to choose from a variety of customizable options, similar to the BMW Alpina B7.  Its closest competitors are the Genesis G90 and Cadillac CT6. The pick up is about equal to the Genesis G90 while the CT6 still leads the way thanks to its lightweight design.
