We all know the fact that the Lincoln Motor Company presents a vital part of the Ford Motor Company that has, over the years, specialized in making and selling quite lavish and luxury being equipped vehicles. The vehicles, designed by this prestige luxury brand, have been sold, primarily, in North America and the Middle East.
Anyway, the title of this review is a novelty that is coming out from this firm. It is, in fact, only a slightly refreshed variant, but still is worth of our attention. Its name is the 2016 Lincoln MKZ and it has more than a few similarities with its closest sibling- Ford Fusion, although underwent minor changes and now, features somehow sleek, distinctive and highly attractive styling. But, now, the real question is whether that’s will be enough to raise the status of the brand, although we find newly MKZ as a truly quite desirable luxury been equipped sedan. In order to get all of the relevant facts about this lovable sedan, we strongly advise you to read this quite honestly been written review, till its end.
2016 Lincoln MKZ Interior, Exterior ,Appearance
When this slightly refreshed variant finally hit the car markets throughout the Globe, it will come along available in two trim levels: Base and Black Label variant. Both are planned to be available for the MKZ Hybrid, too.
One of the most notable features will be 2016 Lincoln MKZ’s flowing center stack and console. Designed in a highly modern and future-oriented way without any excessive details, such as buttons or knobs. Although, you will definitely find to be highly attractive, you will, the most probably, be utterly disappointed by the quality of materials being used, which won’t go much beyond what you get in the related Fusion. On the other hand, we suppose that you will be quite satisfactory with the dash-mounted selector buttons for the transmission rather than a steering-wheel- or console-mounted gear selector. We find it pretty handle as well as ultra-fashionable.
However, perhaps, the biggest disadvantage, when it comes to slightly refreshed 2016 Lincoln MKZ, is it, somehow, confined space main cabin. That’s the case, mainly because MKZ’s pretty high positioned center console, limited the front seating area and additional lack of space will produce the coupe like roof, which line in a way will narrow the headroom of taller rear-seat passengers, while, on the other hand, the rear-seat legroom we find more than a generous.
When it comes to the high-technology features, which this vehicle will be, literary, stuffed with, the following ones you will, definitely, find as the most relevant ones: somehow standard My Lincoln Touch (a.k.a. MyFord Touch) system that will handle audio, Bluetooth, navigation and a bunch of other vehicle functions that will be displayed via its crisp 8-inch touchscreen. Further, if you opt to buy 2016 Lincoln MKZ , you will be able to throughout advanced Sync voice command system to control the vast majority of the car’s functions. To be quite honest, although it sounds terrific, in reality, you will find the touchscreen’s processing speeds to be somehow sluggish during infill certain tasks, and the center stack’s touch-based controls you will, the most probably, find a bit confusing and/or frustrating to use.
2016 Lincoln MKZ Engine
It is planned that the 2016 Lincoln MKZ will come available with a different three powerplant options. The first will be a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will present a base one, and it will be able to pump about a 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission and adjusted on a front-drive mode, although 4-wheel drive mode will come as an optional one. The second one is planned to be a 3.7-liter V6 engine that will be more than enough capable to accelerate about a 300 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. While, the last powerplant option will be a hybrid one, which will pair a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor. It is estimated that their combined power will be able to produce a total output of 188 hp.
