The typical car buyer wants a vehicle that’s fast and flashy. But the discerning luxury car owner prefers a vehicle with a style all its own. For those who fit the latter category, Lincoln has just the vehicle: the all-new 2017 Lincoln MKZ.
Lincoln refers to the MKZ driving experience as “quiet luxury,” and it’s easy to see why. This redesigned luxury midsize sedan has all the creature comforts one could want, including a sleek exterior design, plush interiors and a panoply of user-friendly technologies. Observers say that the 2017 MKZ most closely resembles the Lincoln Continental concept that recently debuted at the Detroit Auto Show, which is great news for drivers who enjoy American-made cars with a bit of old-school charm.
In terms of stylistic and technological features, the Lincoln MKZ stands alone in terms of uniqueness. Here’s just a brief listing of its highlights:
• radar-guided cruise control
• automatic parking assist
• push-button gear shift
• floating center console
• Active Nose Control system
• three Lincoln Black Label personalized interior packages
• fully retractable panoramic glass roof
• Revel door-mounted audio speakers
Lincoln emphasizes three factors that make the 2017 MKZ especially unique: intuitive technology, effortless performance and distinctive design. With that in mind, here are a few details about each.
The MKZ’s adaptive cruise control allows drivers to stop and start as needed. When approaching a stop point such as a red light, the system automatically deploys the brakes without having to hold the pedal. Afterwards, the MKZ can resume its normal high speeds while lessening the severity of potential frontal crashes with the Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. Once the vehicle has reached its destination, the park assist feature can help maneuver in and out of a particular parking space.
The Lincoln MKZ is available in two engine options. The first is an exclusive, 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engine that can generate 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The second is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder AWD engine that churns out 245 horsepower. Additionally, the 3.0-liter GTDI engine works in concert with the vehicle’s Dynamic Torque Vectoring feature to deliver smooth, precise cornering. Finally, MKZ drivers have three Lincoln Drive Control options that allow them to travel the streets in style.
The MKZ’s unique features include adaptive LED headlamps that lights the way for drivers in all conditions. Moreover, the vehicle is available in two all-new Black Label themes, Chalet and Vineyard, which, in addition to Thoroughbred, gives Lincoln drivers a customized driving experience.
The all-new Lincoln MKZ is on display now at the Los Angeles Auto Show from November 20-29. The MKZ is scheduled to go on sale in summer 2016. You can purchase a current-model-year Lincoln MKZ today when you visit West Point Lincoln, your new Lincoln dealership for the greater Houston area!
