Crisp fall days and chilly winter nights by the fire are great reasons to love this scenic region, but that doesn’t mean you want to brave the elements for every little thing. One of the many sweet perks of Lincoln ownership is convenience across the full line of vehicles. Whether it’s time for scheduled maintenance, or the purchase of your new vehicle, specialists are a call away with door-to-door service.
Picture this: it’s deepest winter. You’ve had a long day and the forecast calls for snow. Says Kyle Welsh of Bayfield Lincoln, “You can have Alexa switch on your fireplace at home from your Lincoln, or activate other smart features in your home.” It’s a warm welcome only your family dog can match.
And conversely, when you’re snug indoors but the outside world beckons, you can make sure your vehicle is warmed to a custom temperature, with seats, mirrors and driver-assist functions adjusted, and your favourite radio station playing as you slide into the driver’s seat. Up to three key fobs can be custom programmed with unique settings to accommodate different drivers in the family.
It’s impossible to mention fall and winter in Ontario without also giving road conditions some thought.
“Lincolns are built to put your mind at ease when it comes to ice and snow,” says Kyle. “With distinct drive modes like Deep Conditions, Conserve, Slippery, and Slow Climb, there’s enhanced confidence and control, no matter what Mother Nature serves up.”
Changeable driving situations become easier to handle with Adaptive Pixel Projector headlamps that provide fully adaptive illumination. Lights shine farther into the distance at highway speed, then adjust to create a wider beam at slower speeds. And glare-free lighting lets you see the road without creating an unsafe glare for other drivers.
Save all that time we once wasted searching for car keys. Through the Lincoln Way app, you can program your smartphone to act as the key. Enter, start the car, and drive away. If you lose your phone or your phone battery dies, a backup start passcode lets you use an access PIN to enter the car and start the engine.
The Lincoln Way app also gives you access to a personal concierge, and helps you find parking, check local fuel prices, and operate your vehicle remotely. You can also stay connected to the dealership for specialized pick up and delivery service, maintenance appointments, and technology questions.
“Lincoln offers a winning combination of cozy at-home convenience, time saved, and reassuring road safety features,” says Kyle. “It lets you embrace the best of fall and winter.”
