Edmunds' Expert Review

An extra dose of horsepower puts the 2007 Lincoln MKZ on more equal footing with its entry-luxury sedan peers, but it still faces a difficult battle as competitors offer sharper handling dynamics, higher-quality interiors and greater overall refinement.

vehicle overview

In an unusual twist, Lincoln has renamed one of its vehicles after just one year on the market. In order to more closely align its vehicles with a new naming structure, Lincoln has renamed last year's Zephyr sedan the 2007 MKZ. As was the case with the Zephyr, the MKZ midsize sedan is very similar to the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan. As you'd expect from Lincoln, the MKZ comes with plenty of luxury features. But this year Lincoln has made a renewed effort to emphasize the differences between its car and its lower-priced brethren.

Most noticeable is the MKZ's exclusive new engine. Under the hood is a larger, more powerful 3.5-liter V6. The bigger engine makes 263 horsepower, 42 more than last year's 3.0-liter V6. It also develops more torque (249 pound-feet this year) and is available with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. This is the only engine available, and there's no base four-cylinder model as with the Fusion and Milan.

The Lincoln MKZ is a distinctly American take on the entry luxury sedan. The interior is suitably roomy and comfortable, and although the materials aren't class-leading, they're a noticeable step up from the Lincoln's lower-line siblings. And with peppy acceleration from the new V6 and a plush ride, the MKZ is pleasant to drive. Overall, it stacks up well with other premium and luxury-brand choices like the Acura TL, Chrysler 300, Lexus ES 350, Nissan Maxima and Volkswagen Passat, but many of these cars offer sportier handling dynamics and/or more upscale cabin furnishings. Then there's the matter of the MKZ's styling, which although unusual, doesn't seem likely to resonate well with the younger customers Lincoln hopes to attract. Still, for buyers seeking an entry-level luxury sedan with a little more interior space and a fairly reasonable price, the 2007 Lincoln MKZ is worth a look.

2007 Lincoln MKZ configurations

A midsize premium sedan, the 2007 Lincoln MKZ comes in a single trim with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The MKZ comes nicely equipped with such standard features as 17-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, wood trim, power seats with memory, dual-zone automatic climate control and a seven-speaker CD stereo with an MP3 player input jack. Notable options include chrome wheels, xenon HID headlights, a sunroof, an upgraded THX-certified sound system, satellite radio, a navigation system, and heated and cooled front seats.

2007 Highlights

In order to more closely align its vehicles with a new naming structure, Lincoln has renamed last year's Zephyr the MKZ. There are also a number of updates to the vehicle as well. Foremost is a larger, more powerful 3.5-liter V6. The bigger engine makes 263 horsepower, 42 more ponies than last year. Other changes include the availability of all-wheel drive, altered front-end styling and optional satellite radio. Finally, drivetrain warranty coverage now spans six years/70,000 miles.

Performance & mpg

All Lincoln MKZs come with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. It's good for 263 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. The optional electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system can transfer power from side to side as well as front to rear.

Safety

Standard safety features include front-seat side impact airbags as well as full-length head curtain airbags. Those head airbags include a "roll-fold" feature that helps to keep the airbag against the glass even if the occupant is out of position. All MKZs include disc brakes with ABS. Traction control is also standard, but oddly, stability control is not available. In NHTSA crash tests, the 2007 Lincoln MKZ received four out of five stars for driver and front passenger safety. In the IIHS' frontal-offset test, the Lincoln MKZ received a rating of "Acceptable," the institute's second highest rating. It also earned an "Acceptable" rating in IIHS side-impact testing.

Driving

With 42 extra hp compared to last year's Zephyr, the MKZ offers the brisk acceleration expected of a $30,000 car. Additionally, the new 3.5-liter engine has a smooth power delivery. Like the Zephyr before it, the MKZ is capable around turns, but doesn't offer handling dynamics on par with its more athletic competitors in this price range. Steering feedback, in particular, is unimpressive. On the flip side, the MKZ offers a typical Lincoln "big car" ride on the highway, making it an excellent candidate for road trips.

Interior

Inside, there's plenty of chrome, wood trim and bold lines. The materials are solid in quality, and the leather seats look plush but can be a little firm for long trips. Also, the MKZ is a little bigger than other entry luxury sedans, making it a good bet for buyers needing a fully usable backseat. Trunk capacity measures 15.8 cubic feet.

Dave T,10/27/2006
Most any magazine review of this car gives it a bland or no endorsement. Ignore them all! Besides that cool, unique interior, this car has great specs - 6 speed trans, 263 horses - better than most BMW's which will cost you thousands more. Riding in the class of a Lincoln for under $30K?? I don't see much to criticize about it whatsoever. It has great acceleration, especially in the middle gears and a tight feel in general. It's roomy, agile and stylish - I highly recommend it. Also, the dealer experience was very pleasant. One salesperson from start to finish and no pressure at any time. So far so good. Did I mention that the price was only $28K??
puts the Japanese in the dirt.
stuart adams,11/12/2006
This is a beautiful car. It has a great ride, classy styling and will get up and go. The navigation and stereo system are easy to use. It is the most comfortable car, I have driven. I looked at Japanese and German cars, and this was by far the best value. This car is worth a look, and to all you German, Japanese yuppies this is a high performance luxury car at 2/3 the price. I think it has a better ride and is better engineered than most cars in its class. Ford/Lincoln did well on this one. I traded in my 2005 Subaru Legacy and was very impressed by ride, luxury, performance of this vehicle.
07 AWD
Dustin,11/04/2015
I sold my 392 Challenger and bought a used 07 MKZ AWD with roughly 90k miles. Turning 120k now and only an a/c clutch had to be replaced. I was ran off the road at an intersection by someone that blew a red light, forcing me to jump a curb. Surprisingly, no damage other than an alignment and wheel balancing. The power is very adequate (this coming from someone that had a hopped up (525hp) car. I get 25-28mpg, depending on the highway speed, typically 75mph. Pretty good mpg for an awd. Looks good, drives good, what else can you want?
Fast and Luxurious
MKZluver,12/17/2006
Love the looks i receive and the compliments about it. most people say they didn't know it was even a lincoln! plenty of room. sound system is incredible and like i've never heard in a car. i always find excuses to go places with it. drives very comfortably when cruising but when pushed hard she moves very quick and sometimes scary! The new 3.5 liter is a huge improvement over the 3.0L. I like the new front fascia over last years zephyr. Lincoln didn't take any short cuts with any cheap materials here. everything is top quality and soft to the touch. don't base your decision by pictures or reviews go out there and test drive one yourself and you will be amazed. Choose over comp. like Lexus Es350

Should I lease or buy a 2007 Lincoln MKZ?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
