The Lincoln Continental, the four-door sedan that was once the preferred car of US presidents and celebrities like Elvis Presley, Jackie Kennedy and Clark Gable, will be no more.
Ford said the declining sales of full-size premium sedans and the rising popularity of SUVs persuaded it to kill off the Continental for good.
The Ford Motor Company confirmed on Thursday that it is halting all production of the Lincoln Continental. A 2020 model of the Lincoln Continental is seen in the above file photo
Ford will instead focus its manufacturing on models that have higher profit margins, including its crossovers and SUVs. A 2020 Lincoln Continental is seen above

‘It will end for both China and the US at the end of the year,’ Lincoln spokesperson Angie Kozleski told the Detroit Free Press.
