Lincoln Zephyr 2006
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.
