Great Designs in Steel 2016 Presentations: A Closer Look - 2016 Lincoln Continental D544

In case you missed it Shawn Morgans from Ford Motor Company presented “AHSS Technologies in the 2016 Lincoln Continental D544” at Great Designs in Steel 2016.

After 14 years, the Lincoln Continental rides again. With its comeback, the continental now sports an aluminum hood and decklid instead of the SMC components it once had. Along with the introduction of the aluminum parts, Ford has also increased the strength and types of UHSS usage. Not to be left out, the front bumper reinforcement was redesigned to help manage crash energy in the small overlap crash test.
