    Detroit 2012: Lincoln To Show MKZ Concept

    Alongside the new Ford Fusion, Lincoln will be showing off a thinly-disguised concept car version of its next-generation MKZ sedan at next week's Detroit Auto Show.

    “This is the biggest statement Lincoln has ever made at an auto show. Our NAIAS display represents more than a vehicle debut. It represents the reinvention of Lincoln,” said Lincoln design director Max Wolff.

    The MKZ marks the next step in Lincoln's revitalization plans. Last year Lincoln started to put the plan in motion by showing the refreshed MKS and MKT.

    Not much is known about the new MKZ besides retaining the Fusion’s front-biased architecture. Lincoln says the next MKZ will be much more distinct than the previous model.

    The dealership that got our franchise has since given it up, reportedly in response to Ford's demands for Lincoln stores going forward. Now there is no Lincoln outlet in Lancaster County. A lot of our loyal service and bodyshop Lincoln customers are very upset and angry. Rebuffing existing customer base before attracting a new one seems like suicide.

    Unless the new MKZ is rear drive with the 5.0 liter V8 from the Mustang GT, this is a snooze car, and we can all move along, there is nothing to see here.
