litre EcoBoost engine
The Lincoln C Concept is a design which tries to bring
the presence and features of a large car into a more efficient
package. Despite being smaller than Lincoln's other vehicles
the C Concept uses several styling features common to
the brand, most noticeable is the large grille and headlight
units which dominate the front end.
The low shoulder line of the Lincoln C Concept has the
effect of moving the perceived center of gravity lower
down in the car. The aim was to mix "go kart"
stability with elegant lines and surfaces.
Sleek side mirrors feature both advanced rearview camera
and blind spot detection systems. Slit-like LED turn signals
are integrated into the housings.
The Lincoln C lacks B-pillars or center posts. The center-opening
doors allow easy access to the front and rear bench seats
and give the vehicle a limousine-like feel.
The interior of the Lincoln C Concept features light and
bright colors and tactile materials such as wood and metal.
Ambient lighting, jewel-like chrome details, bench seating
and a symmetrical instrument panel which serves both driver
and passengers adds to the feeling of luxury. Light gray
wood veneer made from recycled wood provides
a striking contrast against the white leather on the instrument
panel and door panels. The headliner is white Alcantara
Chrysler's designers took advantage of the extra space
in the interior of the Lincoln C by incorporating bench
seating in the front and back rows. There is a single
headrest on the left and a double headrest on the right
for passengers in both rows. All the headrests automatically
retract without occupants for improved driver vision.
Convenience trays are housed compactly behind the front
bench. In the closed position, they are flush with the
leather and feature chrome release handles.
One of the most eye-catching elements of the seating is
the laser-engraved floral etching on the passenger side
seats and floor and on the back of the driver's seat.
It is a light, airy pattern that is designed to give the
interior a refined, sophisticated appearance.
Powering the Lincoln C Concept is a turbocharged 1.6 litre
EcoBoost engine which develops 180 horsepower and 180
lb-ft of torque, while still offering 43 mph on the highway.
To further increase fuel efficiency the Lincoln C is equipped
with Assisted Direct Start. This system automatically
shuts down the engine when the vehicle is at idle
at a stop light, for example and automatically
restarts the engine when the brake is released or accelerator
pedal is pressed, improving fuel economy by saving idle
