How Much For The Lincoln MKZ?

Lincoln MKZ Pricing 2013

Today, Lincoln announced pricing for the 2013 MKZ. The MKZ starts at $35,925 (excluding $875 in destination fees), which nets you a 2.0L EcoBoost four-cylinder producing 240 HP and 270 lb-ft of torque, push-button shift, LED headlights, a 10.1-inch LCD instrument panel, an 8-inch touch screen display in the center stack, remote start, and Active Noise Control.

For the same base price, you can order a MKZ Hybrid which replaces the 2.0L EcoBoost for an 2.0L Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder and a 70-kilowatt electric motor, for a combined 188 HP. Fuel economy is rated at 41 MPG City and 36 MPG Highway.

Wanting a bit more power, you can step up to a 3.7L V6 which gets you 300 HP and 277 lb-ft of torque which will cost you $37,155. The 2.0L EcoBoost and 3.7L V6 come with option of AWD.

Four trim lines will be offered on the MKZ: Premiere, Select, Reserve, and Preferred. Premiere is the starting point, with the Select adding on a rear-view camera, wood steering wheel, rear parking sensors, HD Radio, and more. Reserve installs voice-recognition navigation, blind-spot detection with cross-traffic alert, a power decklid, cooled seats, and a power tilt/telescopting steering wheel. Finally, we get to the Preferred which adds 19-inch polished/painted wheels, premium floor mats, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, a 110-volt powerpoint (included on MKZ Hybrid), and a THX II certified audio system.

The MKZ goes on sale later this fall.

Inflatable seat belts is a nice feature for a car in that class.

It has a unique look, but I am not really a fan of it. They put a lot of features on this car, but at the end of the day, this is still a Fusion. Although the 2013 Fusion looks better.

Speaking of the MKZ, I saw a Zephyr in traffic today..forgot about that car (the 1st model year of the MKZ was called Zephyr).

Like the push button tranny, reminds me of old Chyrsler cars. Feature rich, but design language ugly.

Not a fan and I think it is over priced for the type of engine you get.

Pass on wanting to buy one.

they should have done the shifter maybe like the jag, just a dial in the same spot...i think that is how Jag does it. there is nothing ergonomic or intuitive about random shift buttons on the dash. what happens if those buttons crap out?

The old Chrysler push buttons were manual and never failed in the cars I came across or when family had one. But here, I do wonder if some electronic fails does it just lock up or go into a limp home mode?
