What’s New for 2022: Lincoln

One hundred years ago today, Lincoln became Ford. Purchased for $8 million from Henry Leland, who had shifted from building aircraft engines for WWI to cars, Henry Ford proceeded to make Lincoln the premium marque of the Ford brand. Its centennial ushers in a new era, with Lincoln rolling out four new electric vehicles on its way to having a fully electrified lineup by 2030. It starts in 2022. 

Lincoln has not disclosed which models will be riding on one of two electric platforms built by Ford, but an electric version of the Lincoln Aviator three-row SUV will start production late in 2024. What else is known is the build-out of more plug-in hybrids, as well as changes across Lincoln’s lineup of crossover SUVs for the 2022 model year.
