It appears that the CUV program happened, but the former Mercury based Focus was scrapped some time ago, with the death of this brand, and it has yet to be turned into a Lincoln, at least as far as it had been announced.

So unless its secretly been revived as a Lincoln I'm not as sure about the validity of their sourcing on the Lincolnized Focus sedan at the moment.

The original MK-C concept was basically a Volvo C-30 with the 1.6 L ecoboost and a dry dual clutch powershift transmission at least on paper. It was a clay and wood framed glider/ model at thhe time
