The Lincoln Motor Company has gone to extraordinary lengths to give the exterior of the 2017 MKZ an exceptional level of grace and elegance. An equal amount of effort has been applied to develop and harness the capabilities of an available 3.0L twin turbocharged V6 engine. This engine, delivers 400 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft of torque, making the 2017 Lincoln MKZ one of the most powerful and compelling Lincoln vehicles to ever take to the road.
The 2017 Lincoln MKZ is a true driver’s car. To make the driving experience even more distinctive, the available Driver’s Package combines Dynamic Torque Vectoring, a sport-tuned suspension and revised continuously controlled damping. A unique grille, 19-inch wheels and painted brake calipers round out the exterior appearance. Inside, an Ebony interior with Touring White accents and multicontour seats make for an interior experience that is unique to the Driver’s Package.
Design that allows for more freedom when it comes to the way we drive. The push-button shifter in the Lincoln MKZ places transmission controls on the center console. These repositioned controls present a fluid and seamless interior design.
The MKZ offers an adaptive suspension powered by continuously controlled damping (CCD) that measures suspension, body movement, steering and braking. Within milliseconds the system adjusts suspension damping to help keep your vehicle smoothly on track. In addition, you can manually select from Comfort, Normal and Sport suspension driving modes.
For the Lincoln MKZ, designers took the notion of “elegant simplicity” as their point of departure – and arrived at a luxury sedan whose integration of lines and curves is simply stunning. Design cues become individual pieces of art, like the pedestal mirrors that add a jewel-like touch of elegance.
Standard full LED taillamps and headlamps beautifully blend elements of style and function. Not only are LEDs sharper and brighter than conventional incandescent bulbs, but they also illuminate faster and use less current.
Comfort in the Lincoln MKZ is luxurious. These premium leather seating surfaces are trimmed in soft, sumptuous leather, with the front seats heated or cooled to suit the season. The front seats adjust at the touch of a button to fine-tune comfort to your individual needs. The driver’s seat memory feature allows you to have your personal seating preferences available anytime.
No matter the time of year, hot or cold, enjoy the comfort of heated and cooled front seats each with three individual temperature settings. A thermal engine, operated independently of the car’s climate control system, heats or cools the air, then circulates it through the seat back and cushion.
No detail has gone unnoticed, or untouched, in creating the exceptionally luxurious interior of the Lincoln MKZ. Craftsmanship is evident in the use of premium materials, soft to the touch and visually appealing, throughout the cabin.
Being greeted by a cold steering wheel is a thing of the past with the available heated wheel, wrapped in hand-stitched leather for exquisite craftsmanship and luxurious comfort. It can heat quickly for a welcome feeling on cold winter mornings and be an elegant touch all year-round.
Available adaptive cruise control functions just like normal cruise control — with one important difference. When the radar sensor detects traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes its set speed. Forward collision warning with brake support can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield and provides an audible warning. If you don’t react quickly enough, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
The available inflatable second-row outboard safety belts help distribute crash force energy across more of the torso than a traditional safety belt. This can help reduce the risk of injury while providing support to the head and neck. In the event of a frontal or side crash, inflatable belts hold the passenger in the appropriate seating position, helping to reduce risk of injury. These safety belts are also compatible with many child safety seats.
