The 2017 Continental has three different options when it comes to engine size. It comes standard with a 3.7-liter V6 engine in its base model. This more than enough power to get through any driving situation, especially situations encountered when it primarily used as a daily driver. If you do want a little more power in your Continental, there are two other engine options available in the upper trim packages, a 2.7-liter V6 that is turbocharged and a 3.0-liter V6. The biggest engine has 400 horsepower.
