2013 Lincoln MKZ
2013 Lincoln MKZ

New For 2013

Lincoln completely overhauled the MKZ for 2013, along with the Ford Fusion it’s based on. A turbo in-line four engine featuring 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque is all-new, and the V-6 engine grows from 3.5 liters to 3.7 and now produces 300 hp. The MKZ Hybrid now uses a smaller engine, which could improve fuel economy. Lincoln’s sophisticated Lincoln Drive Control makes its debut.


Luxury automakers must have a strong contender in the entry-level premium segment, and the 2013 MKZ looks like Lincoln’s first real player there. Although the MKZ shares its underpinnings with the 2013 Ford Fusion, it looks very different and packs unique technology such as Lincoln Drive Control, which debuted on the MKS and the MKT earlier this year. Drivers can now select from three distinct modes—Sport, Normal, and Comfort—on most 2013 Lincoln vehicles, and the system will modify steering, suspension, throttle, transmission, and active noise-control systems to fit the desired parameters. We haven’t yet sampled an MKZ with the system, but it made a world of difference for the MKS and the MKT. Huge interior upgrades include real metal and wood trim on the steering wheel, door panels, and edges of the dashboard and an eight-inch screen for the MyLincoln Touch system that has caused us headaches in other vehicles. We aren’t crazy about the split-wing grille that anchors Lincoln’s current design direction, but it looks better on the MKZ than it does elsewhere in the line. At least the new design is ten percent more aerodynamic than the last MKZ’s, and the silhouette is closer to Audi A7 than Town Car.


ABS; front, side, and side curtain air bags; programmable MyKey; active headlights; and traction and stability control are standard. A lane-keep system, adaptive cruise control, collision warning with brake support, blind-spot information with cross-traffic alert, active park assist, and inflatable rear seatbelts are optional.

2015 Lincoln MKZ Black Label Profile
Ford design chief J Mays told The Detroit News that Lincoln is "not true luxury," but said the brand could improve its image within a decade. That's despite a concerted effort from Lincoln to reinvent itself as a worthy competitor to German luxury brands.
2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Front View
The new Lincoln MKZ has struggled through a slow ramp-up of production but in the past two months has finally gotten on track. From the get-go, Lincoln has been offering the MKZ with three powertrains: a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four, a 3.7-liter V-6, and a gas-electric hybrid. Already, the hybrid is looking to be a much more important player for the MKZ than it was with the previous generation, and based on our first encounter with it -- as well as the hybrid's pricing and mpg ratings -- we'd say that the gas-electric's larger role is deserved.

Hoping to avoid the recalls that beset its popular Escape and Fusion models, Ford is sending some Lincoln MKZ luxury sedans from its plant in Hermosillo, Mexico to Flat Rock, Michigan, for final quality validation, before being shipped to dealers, Bloomberg reports. Flat Rock builds some Fusion models, along with Hermosillo, as well as being home to the Ford Mustang. The Lincoln MKZ shares a platform with the Ford Fusion.
Lincoln Town Car SB47 Flamethrower
We've known for some time that the Lincoln Motor Company was working on a Super Bowl ad, but the luxury automaker's announcement this morning is that it's actually working on two advertisements. One of them will be the previously reported ad compiled from thousands of tweets, but the other one may have grabbed our attention more.

The 1920s and '30s were the original glory days for this city by the sea, a playground for well-to-do holidaymakers. Lincoln was a favorite of that same crowd. Both Miami Beach and Lincoln embraced the modern design zeitgeist, Miami Beach with its many Art Deco buildings and Lincoln with its streamlined Zephyr followed by its instant-classic Continental. In the decades that followed, however, both Miami Beach and Lincoln lost their cachet. Each, in its own way, became a warren of the unglamorous elderly.
