We all know Lincoln as a luxurious vehicle that was created by Ford Motor Company. Marked as one of the top luxury brands in the US, Lincoln came as a strong competitor of Cadilac for the longest possible time.
In 1917, Leland established the company. The name Lincoln was inspired by the 16th president of the US, Abraham Lincoln. However, due to some crisis, this car brand was taken over by Ford in 1922.
The first car completed by the company was in September 1920. Leland’s were not in a good situation at that point in time because of the aftermath of World War 1. Things got worse for the company and later the car brand was purchased by the Ford Motor Company in 1922.
Henry’s son Edsel became the president of the company. He brought innovative ideas and solutions to the company to help it reach the heights. He started working and collaborating with some of the top coachbuilders in America to incorporate the designs and ideas in his company.
In the 1920s, Lincoln was known as a company that brought unique custom solutions to the car bodies ranging from roadster to sophisticated uber-luxurious cars. Consequently, there was a rapid increase in sales and soon Lincoln established itself as one of the leading sellers of outstanding cars.
Soon in 1931, K-series was launched and one year later, new generation KB-series was introduced which ran on an outstanding v12 powered engine. Even when the luxury car models started disappearing the automobile industry Lincoln continued to produce luxury built cars in different factories with coachbuilt frames.
However, because of the downfall of luxury cars in the automobile market, Zephyr was introduced in 1935 which was priced considering the low sales. The car was designed with aerodynamic design and a small V-12 engine. Zephyr was received well by the market and sold out 15,000 cars.
Edsel then collaborated with the chief designer of Ford to build Lincoln Continental, which was originally designed for Edsel. Later, the limited edition of the car was designed and sold. Soon, it became a symbol of the company. In the early 21st century, LS midsize sports sedan was introduced which coincided with the Premier Automotive Group.
Lincoln received the consecutive best sales year in the US in 1989-90. It was primarily because of its Continental model which was very popular among the folks. As in for 2018, Lincoln introduced Navigator with a market value of $ 95,000.
