New Reveal At Detroit: 2009 Lincoln C Concept

Lincoln today dropped a brand new concept at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. The Lincoln C Concept is a study that offers big luxury in C-sized package for the upscale urban consumer - basically a rival to the Mini Cooper, BMW 1-Series and the upcoming Mercedes-Benz A and B-Class. If the C rolls out in production, it'll be the smallest Lincoln yet. So think of the Lincoln C as Lincoln’s version of the Ford Focus.
The new 2009 Lincoln C Concept would be a good market for Lincoln to venture into since none of its rivals have aggressively attacked that demographic. The Lincoln C Concept is designed with contemporary consumer in mind. The muscular lines and the big wheels, that's what we want.
Power for the Lincoln C Concept comes from a 1.6L EcoBoost inline 4-cylinder engine that makes a total of 180hp and 180lb-ft of torque. Mated to a dual-clutch PowerShift 6-speed transmission, the Lincoln C returns a projected 43 mpg on the highway.
Ford is also displaying its latest Eva HMI-technology in the Lincoln C. Production plans have yet to be revealed
