Great ride
My Lincoln dealer got his first 2017 with the driver's package option. Not cheap at $3300 but oh so worth it. With the 400hp engine and AWD this thing is an Audi/BMW clone for tens of thousands less. Spent over an hour test driving it. Came back to the dealership and ordered my own. Left out the luxury package ($4400) and some other stuff. MSRP came in at just under $50K. Not an Audi or a BMW but certainly close enough especially when factoring in the MSRP differential. Service costs will be dramatically less than with the Germans cars (I had 4 Audis over the course of 30 years). For 2017 Lincoln is offering to pick up your car at your home or place of business for service and return it to you. A nice touch. Nothing I will take advantage of as my local dealer is less than 4 miles from my house. My local Audi dealer was 30 miles away. The car is fast, quiet, comfortable, well put together, no wind noise, etc. Seems to be a great alternative to its German and Japanese counterparts.
400 HP AWD 2017 MKZ
Great little muscle car . Throaty sound and impressive acceleration . Gas mileage not that bad for 400 horses . Surprisingly comfortable driving position and a pretty nice ride . Maybe could be a little softer . Electronics work well and are intuitive . Easy car to learn to use . Fun to drive . Lots of nice features , including lights up on approach with the key in your pocket .
My First Lincoln in 62 Years
I've driven many cars during that time including Acuras, BMWs and Mercedes' recently. Their prices have risen too high for what you get, and the styling is nothing to cheer about (2017 MB has an IPAD glued to the dashboard). When I saw the 2017 Lincoln MKZ I was curious because the styling was fresh and the price was right. No undesired extras that were built into my choice, keeping the price reasonable. And the salesman I used was completely knowledgeable about the models and accessories so he could answer every question I raised, and the sales discounts happened to be available during the negotiation. The car is just what I wanted, although with a few negatives. It is spacious front and back with good seating quality (I don't use leather seats). The trunk is large and holds my golf clubs easily, or several large suitcases. The turbo-charged 4-cylinder engine (245 HP) has adequate acceleration and highway comfort, but feels a bit strained somewhat when trying to accelerate at high speeds. The fuel recommended is regular (87), but I use mid-grade (89) for better performance. The car has Ford SYNC for music and other electronic adjustments, which works well. It has several USB and 12-volt ports for the smart phone users, as well as Sirius if desired. One issue with me is the small buttons on the bottom of the steering wheel for answering phones using Bluetooth and setting the cruise control. Hard to select and use when driving. Uses a smart key fob remote for starting, entering and leaving, and pushbutton gear selectors (P,D,N,R). This car is not a sports car, so don't expect that. The 400 HP V6 may satisfy the power, but handling might not be there. I hope this description helps with your decision to buy or not.

The 2017 Lincoln MKZ may not be the quickest entry-level luxury sedan on the market, but it comes out of the gate with a surprisingly long list of standard features that could entice luxury buyers to give it a second look.

For 2017 the Lincoln MKZ received a bit of an exterior face-lift with a new grille and headlights, foregoing the split-wing grille of the previous generation. On the interior, the MKZ improved functionality by upgrading to Ford/Lincoln's latest Sync 3 interface — a vast improvement from its challenging MyLincoln Touch climate and infotainment interface of the past. Passengers of this four-door sedan will enjoy solid comfort in the front seats and ample legroom in the rear. Taller rear-seat passengers, however, may not appreciate the sloping rear roofline limiting their headroom.

Lincoln offers the MKZ in three powertrains for 2017, including the standard engine, hybrid and new turbocharged V6. The standard engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, with 245 horsepower and a six-speed automatic transmission. It feels surprisingly sporty, even if its handling leaves a little to be desired. The 188-hp MKZ Hybrid, offered at no additional cost, is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder mated to an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. It drives similarly to the gasoline version in terms of ride and handling, but it needs work when it comes to the unnatural brake pedal feel of the regenerative braking system. The new turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 is available in two versions: front-wheel drive with an output of 350 hp and all-wheel drive with an impressive 400 hp. Combined fuel economy ranges from 21 mpg for the front-wheel-drive V6 to 40 mpg for the hybrid.

The 2017 MKZ is offered in three trim levels: Premiere, Select and Reserve. The Premiere base model is well equipped with an extensive list of standard features that would easily cost extra on competitors. A special Black Label version is also available, which arrives similarly equipped to the Reserve with an upgraded interior and a choice of three unique themes.

Most options for the MKZ are grouped into packages, including the Climate package and the Technology package. The Reserve model also has the additional options of a Luxury package and a Driver's package. Major stand-alone options on all models include a power sunroof or panoramic moonroof, a power rear sunshade and inflatable rear safety belts.

If you're in the market for an entry-level luxury sedan, the MKZ has a great deal to offer. Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2017 Lincoln MKZ for you.
