About Lincoln MKZ

Previously marketed as Lincoln Zephyr, Lincoln MKZ has been built by the Lincoln Motor Company, which is a division of the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company that sells luxury vehicles under the Lincoln brand, since August 1, 2005, as a mid-size luxury car. Originally introduced as the successor to Lincoln LS, MKZ was one of the five finalists for the 2011 Green Car of the Year award by the Green Car Journal. Competing against the Lexus ES, Buick LaCrosse, and Infiniti Q50, MKZ now is in its second generation.
The first-generation Lincoln MKZ was produced from August 1, 2005, to 2012 based on the Ford CD3 platform. It was unveiled at the 2004 New York International Auto Show as a new entry-level luxury sedan called as Lincoln Zephyr. Mechanically similar to the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, MKZ was offered a Hybrid version and it came with 3.0 L V6 rated at 221 hp and 205 lb-ft of torque, 3.5 L V6 cranking out 263 horsepower and 249 pound-feet of torque and a 2.5 L I4 producing 191 hp. And these engines sent power through the 6-speed automatic transmission to front wheels or four wheels. Current MKZ debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show as a concept model and was unveiled at the 2012 New York Auto Show as a production version. It now comes in three trim levels: Premiere, Select and Reverse. It now gets power from 2.0 L turbocharged I4 rated at 240 hp and 270 pound-feet of torque, 3.7 l V6 producing 300 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque and 3.0 L V6 making 350-400 hp. And power is sent through 6-speed and E-CVT automatic transmissions.
