Jul. 17, 2015 – A Michigan assembly plant will build the revived Lincoln Continental sedan.
Earlier this week, Ford Motor Co. announced Flat Rock Assembly in Detroit, Mich., will build the Continental, which goes on sale sometime next year. The company hasn’t announced when production will begin.
The 28-year-old Flat Rock plant currently builds the Ford Mustang sports car and the Ford Fusion sedan. According to The Associated Press, it has 3,000 factory workers on two shifts.
Ford announced in April that the Continental would return next year after a 14-year hiatus. Continentals were made at Michigan’s Wixom Assembly Plant from 1958 to 2002. That plant closed in 2007.
