Vignale seems like a trim level not a separate brand, its exactly equal to Lincolns black label. and the Mondeo is just a different name for the North American Fusion, actually where do you think our Fusion came from? It was a Mondeo first!Ford has unveiled the Mondeo Vignale Concept today. The Mondeo Vignale is basically a Ford Fusion, but it comes with a Vignale badge, extra chrome, upgraded materials, 20" wheels, all the latest technologies, leather seats, and a new paint color called Nocciola.
So it is Lincoln Black Label on a Ford Fussion that has a different badge. Wait, that actually sounds better than a Lincoln MKZ with Black Label trim! That must be why it will only be sold in Europe.
On top of the actual car, you also get free lifetime car washes with the package, and that I woudn't complain about.
Not much other info, but you can read a bit more here.
Maybe one day Lincoln will die and they will bring over Vignale from Europe to be the luxury division. Doesn't seem like a bad back up plan to me.
Lincoln is not going anywhere, ford is not killing a 70 year old brand to begin building an all new brand based off a trim level. Lincoln will stay, Lincoln will save itself.
The Lincoln Mustang is going to do that
