The 2017 Lincoln MKZ is a clear sign that auto-maker Ford is getting more serious about taking its luxury brand higher and technology has a big role to play in the current updates. The 2017 model targets those who want to stand out in the packed and ever growing luxury car market.
Power Trains and Performance
The 2017 MKZ is powered by a V6 twin-turbo 3.0-liter engine. This is the most powerful Lincoln ever with 400 horsepower and a formidable 400 pound-feet of torque in the AWD versions. The front-wheel drive will be detuned to some 350 horsepower to retain it driving refinement. Besides the V6, also available is a 2.0-liter turbo four 245-horsepower, as well as a hybrid model. For the AWD model, a further option is the Driver’s Pack.
The updated MKZ has received lots of technology updates. First, Lincoln has included autonomous emergency braking along with pedestrian detection, and second, you now have all-speed adaptive cruise control. The MyLincoln Mobile app also debuts on the 2017 MKZ with great features like remote start, locking and unlocking from your smartphone app.
The Interior Design
The interior of the 2017 MKZ has been completely revised and upgraded. It has gained several new dials and switches replacing the previous capacitive touch slider controls. It continues to offer the large panoramic retractable glass roof, while the Revel premium sound system has been introduced.
