2017 Lincoln MKZ Starting Price

The 2017 Lincoln MKZ originally debuted at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Hitting dealerships this summer, the luxury sedan packs more power, more features, and a new starting price. Making a name for itself as the most powerful Lincoln ever built, the 2017 MKZ is bound to make waves in the premium market.

With a starting price at $43,575, the 2017 Lincoln MKZ lands right in the middle of its class.

The sedan boasts a new, more powerful 3.0-liter V6 engine capable of producing 400 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with the V6 engine, it’s the most powerful Lincoln to ever hit roadways. The V6 engine comes with all-wheel drive, providing a sportier ride with better handling.

Only a handful of luxury sedans offer 400 hp, and none of them offer the same luxury and value as the Lincoln MKZ. Available with 20 Revel speakers and all the premium materials you could ask for, this sedan is in a class of its own.

Not interested in power? No problem. The Lincoln MKZ also offers a smaller, more fuel-efficient 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 245 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.

We here at Mountaineer Lincoln can’t wait for the arrival of the MKZ!

Lincoln Company Revival Plans Focus on Core Segments

For the past few years, Ford’s luxury sub-brand Lincoln has been in the process of recreating itself for the sake of attracting new customers to the brand’s model lineup. Lincoln company revival plans stretch all the way until 2020, giving the company plenty of time to strategize and develop innovative new designs, models, and nameplates.

 

The first step in Lincoln’s plans appears to be removing the horizontal split-wing grille and replacing it with a more classically attractive mesh grille with a Lincoln star pattern. The 2017 MKZ will be the first vehicle to sport this new face and is planned for a mid-summer 2016 debut, followed by the Continental that fall. In addition, Lincoln plans to introduce two all-new models to the lineup, with the new nameplates focusing on core segments instead of luxury coupes or sports cars.

 

So far, Lincoln company revival plans appear to be working, as the company is preparing to register two consecutive years of growth. Sales skyrocketed by 16 percent in 2014, and this year has seen a 7.5 percent increase, placing the brand in one of its best positions within the industry since 1998.
