The exterior is updated with new grille, hood, front fender and deck lid designs, as well as restyled headlamps and taillamps.
A larger master cylinder and recalibrated power boost provide shorter pedal travel and improved “feel” on all models.
Standard Torque Vectoring Control utilizes a small amount of brake pressure on the inside front wheel to improve handling dynamics while accelerating through a curve.
Also standard, Curve Control technology automatically slows the car if it determines the driver has inadvertently entered a curve to fast to maintain control.
Lincoln Drive Control includes an active suspension system that provides a smoother ride and consistent handling characteristics over all road conditions.
