Lincoln is focusing on “elegance and beauty” for the exterior, and “serenity and harmony” of the interior.
The look is about being imposing, protecting the family, and giving them a place to be safe. It’s also about giving everyone something to keep them occupied, or in communication with each other, while riding along.
Lincoln has built large screens for everyone (except the driver) to allow passengers to play games against each other in the car. The company said it could envision everyone’s screens connecting to different smartphones or tablets, or for one tablet to play a movie to everyone, for example. Or for each screen to have its own implementation of CarPlay.
There’s a clever intercom system to make it easier for folks in the third row to converse normally with people in the front. There’s even a video chat system that allows riders in the back to see the driver when they’re talking, which might be useful for nervous children who want to see Mom.
Who knows how much of this will make it to the final car, but Lincoln is certainly thinking of the future.
