Lincoln isn't inspiring many purchase decisions these days, as the luxury make sits in dead last in sales. That could change with the introduction of a few key products, starting with the 2013 Lincoln MKZ.

Ford marketing boss Jim Farley introduced the MKZ Concept in Detroit Auto Show, and we very much like what we see. The concept, which should look a whole lot like the production model that goes on sale later this year, really pops on the elevated turn table. The rakish, full-length glass roof retracts so all four passengers can enjoy open air. We heard the word "bespoke" a few too many times during the presentation, but Lincoln promises a more individualized purchase and ownership experience.

Lead designer Maxx Wolf poured over the details of the luxurious interior, including unique stitching, individualized seating for four, push-button gear selector and a floating center stack that was inspired by modern suspension bridges. Wolf also pointed out that future Lincoln models will be designed at the automaker's new design studio in Detroit, which employs 180 dedicated designers and engineers.

We don't have any information on powertrains, but we're expecting the production car to be released with all the info at the New York Auto Show. Hit the jump to read over the Lincoln press release, and feel free to peruse the high-resolution images from the Detroit Auto Show.Continue reading Lincoln MKZ Concept looks to kickstart brand renaissance

The only thing I thought of was a kick in the balls. OLD TIMER SPECIAL here. Welcome to the 65+ demographic. They love driving giant wedges with 1950 grills.

Caddy turned it around with the CTS-V, which gives you M5 performance and comfort for just over Evo cost. I'd like to see more domestics bring it to the Germans. This looks a little too Hyundai for me, but its a start. Being a concept, I'm sure it'll get toned down a bit.

I could buy two EVO's for the price of one CTS-V.
