I'm assuming that's the 2.7L EB bored out to 3.0L.

According to the auto show press release from LA, yes it is. And the 3.0L version will be exclusive to Lincoln products.

I'm glad Ford is finally turning Lincoln into an exclusive brand and not just a dressed up Ford product. Ford can't expect Lincoln to compete on the same level as Cadillac with badge engineering alone. Lincoln has much heritage as an exclusive brand.

Agreed, I always thought Lincoln took over the Mercury name plate with how much badge engineering goes into them. Lincoln is what Mercury should be today, and then obviously exclusives and better luxury in the Lincolns should be them.

Bravo!

 

Let us hope that the Lincoln/SHO has a long run and upgrades from this starting point.

 

I have been a proponent of the Fusion platform for the SHO all along. The Taurus platform is just too big to be in the inherent SHO mindset.

There is word of a Fusion ST, that's going to be the SHO replacement.
