The Chinese demand for stretched cars is spreading from the German brands to the French brands to the American brands, according to reports from, Ford are planning to put four Lincoln models into production in the Chinese market and with one model gaining an extended wheelbase.

In 2012 Ford CEOs Alan Mulally announced that the Lincoln brand would be heading to China, first with imported vehicles and then later with Chinese produced cars with exteriors and interiors modified to further suit Chinese consumer tastes. The first Lincoln to be produced in China is expected to be the new MKZ with other models such as the Ford Edge following behind it.

Fords CD4 platform has has already been put into production as part of the Ford Mondeo platform, but that is expected to be stretched for a Chinese made Lincoln MKZ to help Lincoln push into the all important business/executive market that has so far been controlled by Audi, BMW and to an extent Mercedes.
