The studio is Lincoln's first new, fully dedicated design center in four decades.

Lincoln on Oct. 19 formally opened a new design studio in Dearborn, MI. It is the brand's first new, fully dedicated design center in four decades. Located on the campus of Ford Motor Co.'s Product Development Center, the studio is home to a skilled, co-located global team of designers, sculptors, math sculptors, and modelers representing a dozen nationalities. The siting of the studio in the nerve center of Lincoln vehicle development allows engineers and designers to be co-located. Approximately 150 design team members who work exclusively for Lincoln are also in the center. The first vehicle to emerge from the new studio, the 2013 MKZ, will go on sale late this year.
