2017 Lincoln MKZ vs. Ford Fusion

If you’re in the market for a sedan you can rely on, there are plenty of options available. Since that’s the case, a vast amount of research needs to go into the process. To alleviate some of the grunt work that goes into finding the perfect vehicle, we’ve decided to compare two sedan models from the same family. One is the 2017 Lincoln MKZ - a luxury model under the Ford umbrella. The other is the 2017 Ford Fusion - one of Ford’s recently-popular models.

Both vehicles offer efficient base engines. The new Lincoln MKZ offers a 2.0-liter Inline 4, which is capable of outputting a healthy 21 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the highway. The 2017 Ford Fusion offers drivers a 2.5-liter Inline 4, which can reach up to 21 miles per gallon in the city and 32 on the highway. While both of these models are efficient, the real difference shows up in the features. Read on to find out more about what each model offers.

Differences between the new MKZ and Fusion

Because the Lincoln MKZ is a luxury model, it offers more standard luxury than the Fusion. If you’re after features like Bluetooth, navigation and keyless ignition, either model will suit you just fine. But if you’re looking for a little bit more - like heated/cooled seating and parking assistance features - then you’ll want to go with the Lincoln MKZ.


Both models offer reasonable pricing in their categories. The 2017 Lincoln MKZ begins at $36,095 (MSRP/Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price), and the new Ford Fusion begins at $23,485.
