2017 Lincoln MKZ Sedan for Sale
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.
