2017 Lincoln MKZ Review and Price
Posted on by
The new 2017 Lincoln MKZ is maybe the sign of the modernization of designing and preparing the new lines of the car for the future. Even the Lincoln has been known as the manufacturer with fewer changes on the markets; it seems that they’ve made a turnaround in term of design and engine performances. After summer 2016 when the expected to start sales of this car are it will be the completely new car with still unseen features in this class of the car.
Even this is the car which is sharing the CD4 platform with the Ford Fusion; together with other Blue Oval mid-size vehicles we surely expect the new approach from the Lincoln due to make an original vehicle with a unique look. Maybe the biggest eye catcher is single-frame grille, which we used to see on the Continental cars from Lincoln as the replace of the not much accepted and loved split-wing grille. Now, the new 2017 Lincoln MKZ will have the new, cute and handsome face, even still not original, nice enough to announce as the best part of the new car. Some knowers complain that the new body shape is becomes uglier to look passes from front to back of the car, with the strange expansion of the car last gear.
Thewords like “buttons and knobs” prevail in describing of interior look. Aside the new Sync 3 interface, there are a lot of buttons for the audio and climate systems, there are a new soft and sensitive buttons and sliders with specific wiper and turn signal stalks. Still, there are no so much tech innovations as we may have expected. Even the existing buttons are a little slower (like for cruise control) the forward-collision-warning systems which detect the risk of collision apply the brakes on time. There is a self-parking assistance and more.
For 2017 Lincoln MKZ is planned a new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 which is made just for Lincoln. It’s have 400 horsepower of strength and 400 pound-feet of torque, but front wheel drive option will be able to make only 350 horsepower. Even that, the basic model will be equipped with a smaller 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for much less, 245 horsepower with both all and front wheel driving system.

Even the engineers are confident in the success of the 2017 Lincoln MKZ and with the price $36,000 plan to win the market, the real test is expecting in the middle of 2016 when is expected a release date for this car.
