2015 LINCOLN MKZ: Marking a key milestone in Lincoln's reinvention is the dramatic 2015 Lincoln MKZ midsize luxury sedan. The MKZ was the first model created by the new Lincoln Design Studio. New for 2015 is available connectivity to the MyLincoln Mobile app. Connectivity is made possible through an available 3G embedded modem. There are four new exterior colors: Luxe, Magnetic, Bronze Fire and Guard. The exterior wears a sweeping roofline, steeply raked windshield, classic split-wing grille (first used on 1938 Lincoln-Zephyr), crafted LED headlights in sync with the steering wheel, and thin, full-width LED taillight graphic. Complementing the sophisticated body lines, the MKZ offers three distinct powertrains. Standard equipment includes 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost delivering 240 horsepower and a 20-percent increase in highway fuel economy. Next, the optional 3.7L V-6 produces 300hp that is 37hp more than the previous MKZ V-6 while improving fuel economy five-percent. When equipped for a trailer, the V-6 has a 2,000 pound tow capacity. Both of those engines utilize a push-button shift that replaces traditional mechanical transmission shift lever with a contemporary five-button interface, and can be match to models with either the front-wheel or all-wheel drive configurations. Innovation and technology abound inside all '14 MKZ, starting with MyLincoln Touch driver connect technology, push-button shift, remote start and a retractable panoramic roof that utilizes a 15.2-square-foot glass panel. The new MKZ is the only sedan in its class to offer inflatable second-row outboard seat belts, and the available THX II car audio system is a Lincoln-exclusive that contains 700 watts, 14 channels and 14 speakers. Finally, the well-tailored truck provides an ample 15.4 cu. ft. of luggage room. (The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is covered separately).
