Lincoln is on a mission to carve out its own niche in the luxury car market. Yes, rather than follow in the footsteps of rivals and fill the lineup with rear-wheel-drive sports sedans and coupes, Lincoln is more focused on quality, comfort, user-friendly technology and an uncomplicated buying process.

So far the strategy appears to be working as Lincoln's sales grew by 10 percent in the United States in 2016, its best result in nine years. The brand is also doing well in China where it was launched in 2014. Sales there grew almost threefold in 2016.

Part of the reason for the boost is the renewal of some key products. Here’s what you can expect when walking into one of Lincoln’s showrooms in 2017.
