What is Lincoln Black Label?

2019 Lincoln Nautilus Black Label | Mike Raisor Lincoln

Choosing the right luxury vehicle is a step in the right direction, but for the ultimate premium package, there’s no better option than Lincoln Black Label. Currently available with the 2019 Lincoln MKC, Nautilus, Continental, and Navigator, Lincoln Black Label brings an array of premium benefits to the road.

Premium Themes

Each vehicle includes a unique interior theme. The Lincoln Continental, for example, is available with Chalet, Thoroughbred, and Rhapsody designs. The Rhapsody theme focuses on music and sound, while Thoroughbred celebrates horse racing throughout history. The Chalet theme is based on mountain slopes and ski lodges.

Premium Maintenance

Membership in the program means owning a luxury vehicle on your terms. A dedicated concierge and mobile showroom are two perks for members living within 30 miles of a Lincoln dealership. An in-dealership studio with a private fitting room and remote vehicle delivery make owning a Lincoln a lot easier.

All members will enjoy complimentary car washes whenever they want. An annual detailing keeps Lincoln vehicles in top condition. Speaking of keeping your Lincoln in top condition, all Lincoln Black Label vehicles feature a four-year/50,000-mile premium maintenance plan. The plan covers recommended service with complimentary vehicle pick-up and delivery.

Culinary Collection

Members will enjoy more than just perks for their vehicles. A culinary collection that features exquisite restaurants with top chefs provides a top-of-the-line dining experience. Plus, new members can enjoy a complimentary dinner for two.

Benefits of Wireless Charging in Your Vehicle

Many car manufacturers are adding wireless charging to their vehicles, and Lincoln is no exception. The benefits of wireless charging are numerous and can make any drive more enjoyable for occupants. Traditional charging methods, like connecting to a USB port, can’t match the advantages of wireless charging in the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus.

Ready to Use

Thanks to wireless charging, your smartphone device will be ready to use at a moment’s notice. Since you can just set the device on the charging pad in the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus, you can keep it full of charge without watching the battery or using a USB port. Once you arrive at your destination, you can simply lift your phone off the charging pad and be on your way.

Simplicity

Is there anything simpler than putting your phone on a charging pad? If there is, we can’t think of it! Some Lincoln models feature charging pads for larger smart devices, like tablets. There’s truly nothing simpler than wireless charging.

Cut the Cable

Fumbling around with smartphone chargers while driving your Lincoln down the highway can be extremely dangerous. If you’re in a hurry, you might even forget to unplug your phone from the charger while exiting the vehicle. Thanks to wireless charging, you can grab your phone and get to your destination in a moment’s notice.

Introducing the 2020 Lincoln Aviator

2020 Lincoln Aviator | Mike Raisor Lincoln

Lincoln has announced the upcoming 2020 Lincoln Aviator, a brand-new offering for the three-row, seven-passenger SUV segment. Named for the flight-like experience of its ride, the new Lincoln Aviator delivers an effortless balance between large SUV practicality and sports car-like performance.

Powertrains

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator comes with one engine option, a Twin-Turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, plenty of power to make your ride exciting every time.

If you’d like a boost, though, there’s always the Grand Touring trim—which adds a battery-powered electric motor to the standard engine, bringing it up to 450 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque.

Rear-wheel drive

The Lincoln Aviator is unique in its standard rear-wheel drive, which gives this SUV extremely responsive handling and exciting propulsion that echoes the feel of a sports car. If you’d prefer something with more traction, the Lincoln Aviator will also be available with all-wheel drive.

Unique styling

The Lincoln Aviator will offer several unique styles of wheels and two different sizes, letting you pick the wheel that best meets your needs and catches your eye. Each trim also comes with a unique grille design that makes you stand out on the road.

Technology

The luxurious Lincoln Aviator comes with a range of brilliant technologies, like Adaptive Pixel LED Headlights, which change shape and distance depending on your speed and can even read road signs to illuminate the path you need to take when lanes merge or bend sharply.

What To Pack on a Holiday Road Trip

What to Pack for a Holiday Road Trip | Mike Raisor Lincoln

Are you heading out to see your family for the holidays? This guide for packing for a holiday road trip will save you the headache of leaving something crucial behind.

Chargers

Are you planning to bring along your phone? What about the kids’ favorite portable gaming devices, tablets, or laptops? Make sure you pack chargers for all your electronics, not just your phones.

A Cooler and Trash Receptacle

Snacks and water bottles on road trips are an absolute must, so pack a cooler – and remember to bring along a place to put everyone’s trash, too, so that cleanup is easier.

Comfortable Clothing

Yes, it’s important to look nice over the holidays, so pack an outfit or two for the actual holiday dinner. However, the road trip itself will require soft, comfy clothing and a supportive pair of shoes. Make sure to stop and stretch occasionally!

First-Aid Kit

It’s a good idea to bring along a First-Aid Kit anyway, but in case you don’t already have one in your vehicle, pick up a kit for the long drive just in case.

Apps

Your phone is a valuable resource on the open road. There are apps for finding the best gas prices, last-minute hotel rooms, and navigating the best route. Download a music-streaming app, too, so that you can make an awesome driving playlist.

We here at Mike Raisor Lincoln wish you and your crew a happy holiday season.

3 Essential Fall Car Prep Tips

Fall Car Prep Tips | Mike Raisor Lincoln | Lafayette, IN

When it comes to transitioning from summer to fall and then to winter, changing temperatures can have a big impact on the inner workings of your vehicle. Car care is a big deal, so make sure you don’t skip out on these fall car prep tips when it comes to getting ready for the colder months.

Check the Tires

Having healthy tread on your car’s tires is important year-round, but especially in the winter, when damp or icy weather conditions can make roads extra slippery. Rotating tires is important for helping your tires wear more evenly, but check the tread depth with the penny test to ensure that older tires are safe to be driven on the road.

Change the Oil

Changing oil is a fairly routine part of servicing one’s vehicle, but it’s also one that often goes overlooked, or perhaps you are procrastinating on doing it because it feels unnecessary. Changing oil is an important part of preparing for fall because it keeps all the mechanisms in your engine working smoothly and effectively.

Invest in an Emergency Kit

Sometimes, batteries die and cars slide into ditches, no matter how hard to work to avoid such situations. In that case, it’s good to be prepared for emergencies by keeping supplies in your vehicle’s trunk. Ice scrapers and jumper cables are staples, but you should also look out for your personal well-being with blankets, a coat, nonperishable snacks, and bottles of water.

If you need to prepare your car for fall and winter, bring it to Mike Raisor Lincoln. Our service center can check and rotate the tires and change the oil on your car.
