I t kind of looks more what a Bentley SUV should look like than the actual Bentley Bentyaga does.

The question still remains, why does Lincoln hate us?

Lincoln is still doing this wrong. Yes, it has all the right bells and whistles, but boy is it a bland looking chunk of metal. It lacks so much appeal. On the outside, there is not one feature about the car that stands out in a good way or is memorable in any way.

The weird thing is, it doesn't. The adaptive cruise control isn't any more sophisticated than what you find on a typical midsize sedan, and it entirely lacks any form of Lane-keeping Assist--something a lot of cheaper vehicles have. Considering most luxury brands are at least paying some lip service to autonomous features, and with Cadillac rolling out Super Cruise, Lincoln seems behind the 8-ball here.

I continue to hate the button shifter that is no more differentiated than a radio control button and seems annoying in parallel parking situations. Headlights also remind me of the Atlas, which is not a good thing, but overall it will keep the blingy cool factor and probably boost sales.

Indeed it's "unique".

I'm not a fan of the push-button transmission either, but it's a retro thing--I think--like the Mopars from the early 60s. Everything at the push of a button was the height of luxury. And even that is a dubious explanation. If that is NOT the explanation, then the fascination with transmission buttons is just Lincoln trying to be different for the sake of being different. Bottom line...it's a bit silly.

My first two Fusions had a stick for the gear selector. The 2017 in the driveway has a knob. Why? It's not automatistic like a stick but it is different for the sake of being different.

It's an age thing. If the Navigator (or Escalade for that matter) was too non-traditional, the traditional, older, monied, American buyers would shun it. I think it has a quiet, attractive presence. It's definitely a massive leap in the right direction.

The interior has sort of a cool, concept-car vibe. I think the floating screen is also done better here than it is on cars from other makes.

The exterior already looks dated to me.

Ferrari and Maserati (and Alfa and the new Alpine) have had buttons for transmission.
