Lincoln debuts the ninth and final generation of the long-lived Continental in 1995. First introduced in 1939, this popular high-end sedan has long enjoyed its status as Lincoln’s flagship vehicle, and the 1995 model is no exception in terms of quality and luxury. Offered in only one base model, the 1995 Continental sticks with its highly regarded, powerful engine and long list of features. Enthusiasts claim that nothing rides like a Lincoln, and this adage certainly holds true with the Continental.

The 1995 Lincoln Continental enjoys a complete overhaul for 1995 with a more rounded, youthful silhouette, and updated interior design.

Inside, a new memory seat system provides programmable seating preferences for two different people.
The 1995 Lincoln Continental features a more sweeping, streamlined look than previous models, while still maintaining that classic Lincoln personality.
