The 2018 Lincoln Continental tackles modern luxury from a traditional point of view.
The Cadillac CT6 is the opposite: it's subdued to a fault, though it has more pedigree competing against the Germans.
The Lexus LS is new this year with a more interesting silhouette.
It still delivers sublime performance and hybrid power for those still interested, but dynamically it's from another era.
The Acura RLX takes the same mechanical approach—it's spun off the mechanicals of mid-size Acuras—but isn't finished as interestingly as any of its rivals.
In comfort and ease of use, the Lincoln stacks up most closely against the Genesis G90 and Volvo S90.
They're both fighting the same uber-luxury rivals with counterprogramming—the G90 with South Korean chauffeured-car realness, the Volvo with high Scandinavian style.
