For close to a century, the name Lincoln has been synonymous with luxury, comfort and design. The company was founded in August 1917 by Henry M. Leland, one of the founders of Cadillac (originally the Henry Ford Company). He left the Cadillac division of General Motors during World War I and formed the Lincoln Motor Company to build Liberty aircraft engines with his son Wilfred. After the war, the company’s factories were retooled to manufacture luxury automobiles. The vehicle has been a subsidiary of Ford since 1922. The current Lincoln model range in North America consists of two sedans (MKS and MKZ), three crossover utility vehicles (MKC, MKT and MKX), and two sport utility vehicles (Navigator/Navigator L). It also sells two vehicles specifically for limousine/livery use, both based on the MKT.
