The Dominant Poise of the 2017 Lincoln MKZ
In terms of luxury accommodation, the 2017 Lincoln MKZ in has a lot to offer. As much promise as it shows in this area, when you’re in downtown it’s obvious how important fuel economy is.
A Lincoln MKZ hybrid is ideal in this area. However, there’s no reason you should have to compromise performance if it’s more important to you. We’re going to break down what the 2017 Lincoln MKZ delivers in terms of these qualities. Let’s begin.
Engine Variety and Leading Edge Fuel Economy
We have to gas powered options. First, a turbocharged 2L GTDI inline 4 featuring direct injection as a standard option. It’s capable of delivering 245 horsepower at 5,500 RPM, and 275 pounds per foot of torque, tested on 93 octane fuel.
In terms of fuel mileage, when looking for tourist sites, you’ll achieve an estimated EPA fuel consumption rating of 21 MPG in the city. It’s significantly higher on the highways, at 31 MPG.
The second is a 3L twin-turbocharged V6 with similar features, but also rated at 350 horsepower and 400 pounds per foot of torque. Obviously, there is a big performance difference, with 3 less MPG for fuel consumption, than the standard model.
There’s also a 2L Atkinson-Cycle inline 4 hybrid option. The reason this is more significant today than earlier years, as that we’d thought we’d reach the pinnacle for hybrid engines. However, this engine’s combined EPA rating of 40 MPG tells a completely different story. With 188 net system horsepower and 129 pounds per foot, it’s a bit of a trade of. In any case, the difference is remarkably positive.
All three options come with FWD technology as standard equipment. The two gas powered engines also feature AWD, which achieves 1 less MPG, but smoother acceleration and better traction help explain that.
Classy Exterior with Advanced Safety Options
Outside, we see a refined vision of luxury car appearance. The 2017 Lincoln MKZ features the signature and iconic grille and an assortment of original rims, ranging from 19-20” in size. Premium 19” 10-spoke rims with an elegant satin finish are also included in the specially crafted Driver’s package.
Other technologies like adaptive HID headlamps and a panoramic glass roof are signature features as well. Lincoln has also included their proprietary Approach Detection technology, which displays their logo on the ground as it senses your keys, and also illuminates the door handles.
In terms of safety features, there is a plethora available to you. To begin with, continuously controlled damping and electric power assisted steering are included as part of the 2017 Lincoln MKZ in Line Drive Control technology. These automatically correct suspension and vehicle control, even actively cancelling noise.
There’s also adaptive cruise control. This essentially allows you to set your cruise control, and your vehicle will automatically sense and avoid objects, even applying brakes in heavy traffic. This is significant in avoiding collisions.
Interior and Entertainment – Ultimate Comfort
SYNC 3 is a great place to start. This allows you to wirelessly sync all of your smart software to the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, including voice recognition software for hands free calls, texts and navigation services.
In terms of audio, you’ll have a 20-speaker Revel Ultima System as an optional part, however you’ll still have access to a 14-speaker Revel Audio System as well.
Features like ambient lighting with custom colors and themes is a nice touch. However, nothing could replace the genuine craftsmanship of the Bridge of Weir leather-trimmed seats and signature steering wheel.
The 2017 Lincoln MKZ truly makes a commanding statement!
While we haven’t had time to cover all of the advanced features available, it’s clear that the 2017 Lincoln MKZ in has a lot of quality behind it. You’ll also have access to the exclusive Lincoln Black Label club, which provides enormous benefits.
