2010 Lincoln MKZ Sedan

2010 Lincoln MKZ Review

(3 Stars)  Lincoln finally holds its own

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Based on the same platform as the Ford Fusion, the MKZ is Lincolns entry into the entry level luxury sedan segment. This is a category already stuffed with models from all of the top auto makers from the US, Germany, and Japan. Any car would have a tough time in such company and the MKZ manages to stay above water, even in such company.

This model, once known as the Zephyr, isn't' the fastest car in its class. Though it won't be at the back of the pack either. The fusion chassis it rides on was rated Motor Trends car of the year for 2010, so the MKZ is already doing pretty well for itself. Power comes from a 263 HP, 249 Ft. Lbs of Torque, 3.5 liter V-6 engine feeding its power through a 6 speed automatic. Standard is front wheel drive, but an all wheel drive option, controlled electronically to transfer power side to side and front to back, is available as well.

New for 2010 is a Sport appearance package. This finally offers 18 inch alloy wheels to this model. The package also included sport tuned suspension and a host of other options.
