Lincoln has a long history of building luxury vehicles for the American marketplace. A division of the Ford Motor Co., Lincoln differentiates its vehicle lineup, which includes cars and SUVs, from their more pedestrian cousins with unique styling, luxurious interiors and more powerful engines. Henry Leland, the auto parts maker who founded Cadillac, produced the first Lincolns in 1920. Two years later, the company was purchased by Henry and Edsel Ford. In 1945 Lincoln-Mercury was established, and has been a staple in the American-made luxury segment ever since. According to the automaker, it has produced more than 7 million vehicles since 1920.
