Lincoln MKZ Is A Premium Version Of Fusion


Having survived the planned restyling, Lincoln MKZ got not only a stylish body and salon with a rich finish, but also a new 400-horsepower turbocharged 3.0 GTDI V6 engine, which gives the sedan the performance of a sports car.

The price of the updated Lincoln MKZ in North America is from 35,170 dollars for a car in a basic configuration with a 245-horsepower 2.0L GTDI I-4 engine to $59,750 for a sedan in the maximum configuration, all-wheel drive and a 400-horsepower turbo engine.

Almost Like Continental

The exterior design of the Lincoln MKZ of 2017 model year is akin to the model with the flagship of the American company Lincoln Continental and will not leave indifferent, perhaps even far from the world of human vehicles.

The American sedan looks stunningly stylish and spectacular from any angle. Particularly successful for Lincoln designers was the front part of the body, which was decided in the style of the British Jaguar models (neat LED headlights, a hood with characteristic relief, a grille covered with a patterned net) and a chic full-width LED lights.

Almost Executive

The five-seater saloon is positioned by the manufacturer, as premium… of course, with an eye on the American sales market. Indeed, in front of us in the photo is a slightly more stylish and ennobled with the Lincoln logo Ford Fusion interior with the same steering wheel and digital instrument panel, slightly modified central console and new door cards, as well as identical front seats and rear seats.
