Lincoln was founded by the same man that helped form Cadillac. Henry Leland, in 1917, created Lincoln with the aspiration of manufacturing Liberty aircraft engines for World War I. After their efforts were completed, at the end of the war Leland went on the create automobiles. He had the idea of luxury in mind, but a small amount of sales sent the company under and forced Leland to sell. In 1922, Ford became the official owner of Lincoln, an interesting acquisition since Ford had been ousted from his early company which its remnants later resulted in the formation of Cadillac.
With Lincoln, Ford could finally establish a reputation as an owner of a stylish luxury line. The advancements made to the brand have created many firsts for the auto industry. Some of these improvements include a golf club compartment, a one-piece windshield, electronic air suspension, and a full-size luxury SUV. But apart from the influential advancements, Lincoln was also the creator of the ubiquitous Town Car and the venerable Continental. It has also been the vehicle of choice for several U.S. presidents. Today, Lincoln represents its original intention as a luxurious car with attractive style capable of high-performance. It has represented Ford’s top line since its inception, and has since renamed itself the Lincoln Motor Company to reconnect with its heritage.
