Lincoln MKZ

Lincoln MKZ 2017 sedan Trim Shown: 2017 Reserve sedan FWD Automatic
Based on the engaging Ford Fusion, the upscale Lincoln MKZ is updated for the 2017 model year with new engines, a plusher ride, simplified controls, and a more conveniently located trunk release. Base models get a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that provides ample power. In our tests the hybrid got 34 mpg overall. For more punch, the available 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 puts out 400 hp when paired with all-wheel drive, and 350 hp on front-drive versions. The MKZ delivers a comfortable ride. Inside is a quiet, luxurious cabin with comfortable seats, but it's a long reach to the push-button gear selector and the rear seat is snug. Available automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection bolster the Lincoln's safety credentials.

2013 Redesign Year
Lincoln MKZ 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Hybrid
The 2013 redesign brought a whole new car with a far more luxurious interior, along with turbocharged four-cylinder, V6 and hybrid powertrains. We considered it to be the most appealing and well-executed Lincoln in memory, though the MyLincoln Touch infotainment system is cumbersome to use. We'd opt for the fuel-sipping hybrid, which, unlike many other hybrids, does not carry a price premium. The Reserve Equipment Group includes blind spot monitoring to help with visibility. A rearview camera was added for 2015.

2007 Redesign Year
Lincoln MKZ 2012
The front-drive Zephyr sedan arrived for 2006, with secure, though not sporty handling. Ride quality is firm, supple, and controlled; but the turning circle is wide. The mid-sized Lincoln’s interior is trimmed in leather and wood, with styling reminiscent of that of past Lincolns. For 2007, an all-wheel-drive version was introduced and the car was renamed MKZ. Stability control was added for 2009. A 2010 freshening saw improvements to the turning circle, better interior materials, and a quieter cabin. The ride is also more supple and controlled. Handling is remarkably responsive. A hybrid arrived in 2011, priced identically to the standard model.
