When redesigning the new 2017 MKZ, Lincoln set out to make it your new favorite place to be. It’s a car for those who want a unique kind of luxury transportation. You won’t find some of these features anywhere else: push-button gear shift, floating center console, active noise control, the most powerful engine ever in a Lincoln, fully retractable panoramic glass roof, and doors designed to position the 20-speaker sound system just right.
Lincoln is the only brand to offer you the Black Label treatment, with a personal in-home design consultation to make your car more exclusive. For those who are more keen on choosing performance levels, there are new options this year. In addition to the 2.0-liter turbo with front-wheel drive, there’s a hybrid model that offers the best blend of performance and economy. At the top of the range is a new 400 hp engine paired with all-wheel drive.
400. That’s the level of horsepower and torque that will be provided by the 2017 MKZ’s available 3.0-liter GTDI engine. When that power is routed to all four wheels with dynamic torque vectoring, the result is a true driver’s car. It’s the most powerful Lincoln ever.
The sleek new look and signature grille will be your first impression of the 2017 MKZ. But inside is where most of the attention to detail resides. Everything has the touch of premium quality, from the leather in the seats to the aluminum in the dash, down to the sound and feel of the switches.
The 2017 MKZ puts down big numbers in the technology department as well. Things like an optional 20-speaker sound system and four high-speed USB charging ports. Lincoln just gives you more. There’s even a hybrid version for fans of green technology.
The new MKZ makes driving easier, safer and more enjoyable. The adaptive cruise control now has full stop-and-go ability to help you navigate traffic jams and go with the flow. It will stop the car for you if you don’t apply the brakes in time, and it prevents you having to hold the brake down when the car isn’t moving. Park assistance can get you into, and out of, any standard or parallel parking situation. And pre-collision assistance with pedestrian detection will help avoid crashes, or minimize their severity.
When you see the new one-piece signature grille flanked by adaptive LED headlights, you’ll know you’re in the presence of the new MKZ. Even better is the view from inside, under the largest open-air roof of any sedan. Lidtke Motors of Beaver Dam, WI, is ready to put you in that driver’s seat starting in summer 2016.
