2017 Lincoln MKZ redesign, concept
With the revelation of the basic prototype of 2017 Lincoln MKZ on the streets not so long ago, there is now an increased interest among auto enthusiasts about what features are likely to be included in this new sedan. While they have only recently released the first look of their new Continental model, it is believed that they have been also working on their new 2017 Lincoln MKZ model for quite some time. Experts believe that it is likely to come with an all new fresh look that renovates the body structure. So have a look at what this new design has in store for you and keep yourself updated.
2017 Lincoln MKZ: Redesign Exterior and Interior
While this super model 2017 Lincoln MKZ model on the roads is still somewhat under wraps, we have come to know some key details about its engineering. The front end of this sedan has been completely redesigned from its previous versions. It features bigger headlights and a well fitted grille. Its grille outline is somewhat subtle and curved, but its front end is significantly prominent which gives it a suave feeling.
The structure and shape of headlights is similar to those of MKC I, even though they come with distinctly different detailing. Unlike some other popular sedans, its headlights are positioned somewhat lower. The headlights also come with turn signals. The rear portion of this vehicle is a reflection of previous Lincoln sedans but comes with a new lower bumper and a bigger exhaust tip.
Unlike the parts of exterior, 2017 Lincoln MKZ did not get any major modification when it comes to its interiors. Its cabin is ideally suited for 5 passengers and most interior features are same as the current models. There will however be certain key changes in its entertainment and navigation equipment features.
2017 Lincoln MKZ: Engine Specs
The Lincoln MKZ is going to feature Ford’s Eco Boost engine with a likely displacement of 2.3 liters. Its engine will offer 285 HP of maximum power. At present, the sedan comes with a turbo 2.0 liter 4-cylinder Eco Boost engine along with a 4 cylinder-based hybrid setup. The new car will feature hybrid setup but it is the 285 HP 2.3 liters turbocharged four that will serve as a major fuel saver. It will also have fine tuned 9 speeds and 10 speed transmission for front-wheel drive.
2017 Lincoln MKZ: Release Date, Price, Competitors
The 2017 Lincoln MKZ will not hit stores before the Continental, which means that one can expect it somewhere around late 2016 or the first half of the year 2017. The base version price for this new sedan will be somewhat higher than that of the current model. We can expect the new Lincoln MKZ to be available at around $ 35 000 – $ 36 000.
While 2017 Lincoln MKZ is going to be thoroughly packed with some cool features, it will still face market competition from some of the products created by other automobile brands. Some of these competing models include BMW 3-series, Audi A4, Acura TLX, the Mercedes-Benz C-class and Lexus ES350.
