2012 lincoln mkz Reviews and News

2012 Lincoln MKZ
2012 Lincoln MKZ
Lincoln's mid-size MKZ sedan, which shares a platform with the Ford Fusion, was given a makeover two years ago and was first offered as a hybrid in 2011. The MKZ Hybrid features a 2.5- liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine mated to an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission, the same technology used in the Ford Escape and Fusion hybrids. The 40-hp electric motor will take you as fast as 47 mph before gasoline assistance kicks in. The MKZ Hybrid comes with the usual bells and whistles, such as SmartGauge with EcoGuide to monitor how green your driving behavior is. It is rated at 41 mpg in city driving and 36 mpg on the highway, making it the most fuel efficient luxury sedan on the market, handily beating the Lexus HS250h (although it can't quite match the efficiency of the Lexus CT200h hatchback). If a hybrid just isn't your thing, there is an available gasoline V-6 powerplant that produces a more-than-adequate 263 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque. With the V-6, buyers can choose either front- or all-wheel-drive propulsion. Options include Sync AppLink voice-activated navigation, a rearview camera, a blind-spot information system, and adaptive HID headlamps. The luxurious cabin features upgraded materials and is trimmed in aluminum or wood (depending on which package you order). As before, a host of safety and high-tech features is available.
2013 Lincoln MKZ Front Three Quarter1
Press conference at the auto show? Forget it. To unveil the 2013 MKZ, Lincoln hosted a dinner at a swanky building in New York's Chelsea district, with a live band providing ambiance. There's a reason for this sort of presentation: it demonstrates Lincoln's dedication to elevating the brand.
Lincoln MKZ Concept Profile 2
This elegant luxury car on display at Lincoln’s Detroit auto show stand looks little like the current squared-off MKZ midsize sedan -- but this show car is indeed the concept version of the next MKZ. Despite the “concept” designation, Lincoln says this car “provides a strong hint” at the production version of the next-generation MKZ.
