AutoBlog and others have articles stating that Lincoln will start using alpha-numeric names for future models. For example the new Aviator Crossover will now be called the MKX. This is an attempt to mimic the Acura and Mercedes models. MKX vs MDX for crossovers.
Now this is just stupid. Lincoln should not look to copy others so blatantly. Naming schemes at FoMoCo have just gotten lamer over the years, with Ford going to F for cars and E for SUVs, and Mercury going for M names. Lincoln going to L names would have been retarded, but this is just as bad. I liked the Aviaotr/Navigator names. Town Car is a name that evokes the days of Lincoln's glory. And of course Continental is the gem in Lincoln's crown.
This is a dumb trend. But Ford seems to be driving Lincoln to the junk heap anyway.
