It wouldn't be deceptive if Lincoln had pointed out to the reviewers that the press cars have tires that are not available from the factory. But they chose not to do that.
Instead they installed the tires, and it took a phone call to the manufacturer to find out that they are not even available as an option. Lincoln went out of their way to alter the press cars, and instead of mentioning the modifications, they forced reviewers to investigate on their own.
The lack of disclosure is what tells me they were trying to pull a fast one.
