2017 Lincoln Continental: Priced from $45.5k to $82k

The new 2017 Lincoln Continental is a several thousand dollars more expensive than the MKS it replaces, but undercuts the Cadillac CT6 and the German competition.

The Continental range starts at US$45,485 for the Premiere, which has a standard 3.7-litre V6. Next up US$48,440 for the Select, which can be upgraded to the more powerful 2.7-liter turbo V6 for US$2,250.

In the middle of the pack is the US$54,840 Reserve which comes with a 2.7-liter turbo V6 as standard. The top dog Black Label begins at US$63,840.

Both the Black Label and Reserve can be optioned up with the 400hp (298kW) 3-liter twin-turbo V6 for an extra US$3,265. On all models, ditching FWD for AWD will cost you US$2,000.

Fully kitted out with the various option packs, a loaded Continental will cost about US$82,000.
