What’s New with the 2016 Lincoln MKZ?
First seen in 2006, Lincoln’s MKZ line has seen many changes. The 2016 model includes some wonderful features that would justify buying it. Lincoln is ditching the wings and Weber-grade grilles and trading them for a scaled-down grille, stylish contouring around the back, and an overall upscale appearance.
Good news for those who like the capless-fuel filler system; it’s here to stay! Inside, you will notice a stark lack of shift lever but it’s nothing to be alarmed about. You’ll get a shiny, new tech upgrade with an all-electronic push-button transmission selector.
Luxury cars aren’t exactly known for fuel efficiency, but the 2016 Lincoln MKZ aims to change the game. Right now, it’s one of the most fuel-friendly luxury cars out there, a Boston.com article says, scoring an impressive EPA-rated city/highway fuel economy of 22/33 mpg.
Meanwhile, its hybrid version got a 41 mpg in the city and a 39 mpg in the highway for a combined fuel efficiency of 40 mpg. The standard 2.0 liter turbocharged inline-4 engine gives it a good performance, but those who are looking for more power might find more satisfaction with the 3.7 liter V6.
If you’re looking for your first luxury sedan, the 2016 Lincoln MKZ is well worth the wait. Watch out for it at local Lincoln dealerships near Hammond, LA.
