Is Ford’s Lincoln Developing A Bentley Bentayga Killer?

By  | 

About a month ago, Ford’s luxury arm Lincoln was caught patenting the name Zephyr. It got many claiming that the name Zephyr will be applied on a brand new SUV which Lincoln is developing.

The word is that Lincoln is building a new ultra luxurious SUV that is going to rival the Bentley Bentayga. Lincoln believes that the Bentayga is the vehicle to beat in the luxury SUV market since other cars have derailed from the lavish lifestyle due to their sporty ventures.

Lincoln wants to stay true to luxury and the Zephyr will be an icon for it. The Zephyr will utilize a twin-turbo V6 EcoBoost engine that will ensure a smooth and pleasurable driving experience.

While it all sounds exciting, the above is based on rumours and they should be taken with a grain of salt. For some, the name Zephyr is nothing more than an iconic name from the past which Ford is preserving so that other carmakers can’t take it away from them. Will the luxury SUV happen?
