Lincoln is taking another step into the luxury eco-friendly vehicle segment. The American premium carmaker has joined together with Rivian to create an all-new electric vehicle, which was previously announced as part of Ford Motor Company’s original investment in Rivian.

 

This first-ever Lincoln all-electric vehicle will add to the brand’s current eco-friendly lineup, which consists of the Aviator and Corsair Grand Touring plug-in hybrid vehicles. It will be a zero-emissions vehicle that will also offer connected and intuitive technologies to help Lincoln customers enjoy a premium driving experience while reducing their carbon footprint.

 

“Working with Rivian marks a pivotal point for Lincoln as we move toward a future that includes fully electric vehicles,” said Joy Falotico, president of The Lincoln Motor Company. “This vehicle will take Quiet Flight to a new place — zero emissions, effortless performance, and connected and intuitive technology. It’s going to be stunning.”

 

The Lincoln battery-electric vehicle will use Rivian’s flexible skateboard platform. It will also be part of the Ford Motor Company’s plan to invest more than $11.5 billion into electrification.

 

Stay tuned for more information about this exciting new Lincoln model. Here at Downtown Lincoln, we’ll be sure to keep you updated on when you can expect to see it in our showroom.

Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Car

spring cleaning tips - toronto, on

Spring has sprung, which means it’s time for a fresh start. If you’re looking to kick off the season the right way, why not give your car a good cleaning? Here are some spring cleaning tips for your car that will leave it looking and smelling like new.

 

Scrub, scrub, scrub. Road salt and general winter grime can really do a number on your car’s exterior. Start with the outside of your car and give it a scrub. Make sure you clean your tires with a tire-cleaning spray and firm brush — and don’t forget to clean your car’s undercarriage. Dry it with a clean microfiber towel for a spot-free shine.

 

Get rid of your litter. Throughout the winter months, it’s likely you’ve accumulated some litter in your car. Whether it’s empty coffee cups in the cupholders or potato chip bags in the footwell, empty out everything that needs to go into the trash and see how your vehicle automatically looks tidier.

 

Don’t forget your floor mats. Whether it’s dried mud from your last camping trip or road salt scuffs, it’s likely your floor mats have taken a beating this winter. Take the mats out of your car and use carpet cleaner if they’re carpet. If they’re rubber, then scrub them clean with some warm soapy water.

 

Embrace spring the right way by thoroughly cleansing your car. And for an even better start to the season, bring your ride in to our service department at Downtown Lincoln to get up to date on scheduled maintenance.

Summer Road Trip Safety Tips to Keep Your Trip Fun

Summer Road Trip Safety Tips to Keep Your Trip Fun | Toronto, ON

If you’re heading out on the open road this summer, you’re not alone. Throughout Canada, many people will be doing just that. Here at Downtown Lincoln, to ensure that your road trip is both fun and safe, we’ve put together a few summer road trip safety tips for you to keep in mind.

Understand the terrain.

Throughout the country, there are a range of terrain types, from mountains to prairies. Depending on where you’re driving, make sure you know how to best drive your car in those terrains. Stay alert on flat prairies, which can cause fatigue easily, and try to avoid overheating your engine and brakes when you’re driving through the mountains.

Look out for wildlife.

Canada teems with wonderful wildlife, from caribou and moose to racoons and wolves. During the summer, these animals tend to be quite active, especially at dawn and dusk. Continually check the sides of the road for any wildlife to avoid a potential animal-vehicle collision.

Don’t forget an emergency kit.

You never know when you might find yourself stranded on the side of the road, so it’s best to be prepared for anything. Create an emergency kit with items like a first aid kit, flashlight, flares, jumper cables, nonperishable food items, blankets, water, and a cellphone and phone charger.
