It seems nearly everything debuting at next week’s North American International Auto Show is leaking early this year. Now a blurry pic of the 2017 Lincoln Continental has surfaced by way of enthusiast forum FordInsideNews.
There’s no word on how the image was obtained, but based on the spy shots of the car, this appears to be a legitimate photo. Judging by the white background and “stock” look of the photo in general, it is likely leaked from one of Ford’s official websites, which has happened in the past.
Assuming it is legit, the production Continental is clearly sharing most design cues with the 2017 MKZ sedan with a nearly identical front clip. Conversely, the sidelines of the car do not appear anywhere near as exciting as those of the Continental Concept car, which is quite disappointing.
The rest of the Continental will be revealed in Detroit next week.
