hated the previous lincoln grils...
I think there is a pretty broad consensus that the new Lincoln grille is much better than the old Lincoln grille. That sh*t is ugly. The new grille doesn't appeal to everyone though, and I think that it looks better on some models than others.
For example, I think that the Lincoln grille looks better on the MKC than it does on the MKZ. I think it might be a matter of proportions.
