2016 Lincoln MKZ

The MKZ is a mid –size luxury four-door sedan produced by Ford’s luxury division Lincoln. This car originally came in August 2005 and it was the company’s first model of new MK series. Later came models like MKX, MKS, MKT etc. First generation was produced until 2012 and it was replaced by redesigned MKZ which came with delay of several months in March 2013 (it was planned to come it late 2012).  This car is also available as hybrid from 2010 and it is also important to mention that it was the first hybrid model with the same price as standard gasoline model in North America. Since 2008, this mid-size luxury sedan is the brand’s best-selling model.

2016 Lincoln MKZ specs

New model came two years ago, so we don’t expect major changes for 2016 Lincoln MKZ. It will use the same CD4 platform that is also used for new Ford Fusion. Beside platform, there are many other mechanical parts that are share with Fusion so practically these two models are related closely. Outside look will remain pretty much unchanged, based on the 2012 Concept. Only possible changes could be some new color options and other minor tweaks. Interior of the 2016 Lincoln MKZ will carry on in the same style, but we expect to see some additional standard features, just it was case with rearview on the 2015 year model. This luxury sedan is also equipped with many safety features. Some of them are parking assist, cruise control, lane departure system etc.

Petrol variants will be 3.7 liter Duratec V6 with 300 horses and 2.0 liter inline-four EcoBoost that outputs 240 horses. Both engines are paired with 6-speed automatic transmission and available in FWD and AWD configurations. The 2016 Lincoln MKZ will be also available in hybrid variant, which will be powered by the same system as current model. This system is based on the same 2.0 liter EcoBoost engine and also adds some electric motor. This hybrid model has the same price as petrol unit.
