...Who likes Lincoln’s styling?

I mean we can all agree this (MKS)

and this (MKT) are abominations unto the Lord.

But this (MKC) is pretty great!

The most important change in their styling was the grille. With the verticle slats it looked like the mouth of a baleen whale, but with the slats rotated 90 degrees it took on the appearance of wings flanking the Lincoln logo. The face that it was a vertically bisected grille was another plus. It really added to the uniqueness factor. With the exception of BMW, most car manufacturers are moving to a single trapezoidal shape. And while I think the new MKZ looks great-better than the previous gen even-I’m a little upset that they’re phasing out the wing grille in lieu of something vastly more generic.
