The Lincoln Motor Company is owned by Ford, but it has a strong connection to Illinois as Lincoln Motor Company founder, Henry Leland, named the company after Abraham Lincoln when it was formed in 1917. Lincoln was purchased by Ford in 1922, but continued to operate as a separate entity selling luxury vehicles.

In 2012 Ford made this differentiation of brands official and changed the name of Lincoln to the Lincoln Motor Company. In conjunction with the name change, the Lincoln Motor Company will produce several new vehicles in the future with unique designs, product development, and a sales team to further the separate identity of Lincoln from Ford.

The first of these new vehicles is the second generation MKZ. These went on sale in early 2013 and will be on hand at hand-picked Chicago Restaurants this weekend.

Come experience the rebirth of an iconic brand named after Illinois’ favorite son and enjoy some fabulous food at the same time.
