I would consider a new CRV for my girlfriend, but the powertrain isn't up to the task. A 6 speed auto and a V6 is really needed.

My only beef is that it shares the same engine with a Ford. Lincoln should have an exclusive higher performance version of Ford's V6 EcoBoost engine.

You don't understand Lincoln's design. The new MKX, MKT, etc. are Lincoln's new DNA. In the past, Lincoln's were a refreshed Ford model but they've gotten away from that.

I watched the video last night and my opinion was that the Panamera was ugly. I happened to see a new Panamera today and it doesn't look bad in person.

I'd love an IRS rear, but it's not happening anytime soon. We are finally getting competent brakes for the V6 and GT. The GT will have optional 14" Brembos.
