I generally agree that the weight will be in the 3400-3500 lbs range...

But exactly what Lincoln is this supposedly based off of? Lincoln doesn't have any platforms. At this point it is more of a trim level of every Ford than its own brand (kinda like Mercury was 5 years ago). And no Lincoln is RWD, except for the Navigator.
