The all-new Lincoln MKZ makes its debut at the New York International Auto Show, the company said Monday.
“The new Lincoln MKZ represents the future of Lincoln in both style and substance,” said Jim Farley, group VP, Global Marketing, Sales and Service.
The 2013 Lincoln MKZ enters the midsize luxury segment later this year. It is stated to be the first Lincoln created by a dedicated team in its new Lincoln Design Studio. With a sweeping profile, MKZ incorporates one of the world’s widest-opening retractable glass roofs, says the company.
Among its other features, Lincoln Drive Control is an intelligent system that delivers a refined ride and engaging driving dynamics. Standard Lincoln Drive Control intuitively integrates multiple systems (engine, transmission, body and chassis) to deliver totally new Lincoln driving quality.
It comes with a distinct Push Button Shift gear selector that enables flowing and architectural center console design. A quiet, well-appointed interior is enhanced by standard Active Noise Control, genuine wood trim, full LCD instrumentation, heated front seats and SYNC with MyLincoln Touch.
MKZ is offered with a choice of three powertrains, including a next-generation hybrid.
Lincoln is the luxury automotive brand for Ford Motor Company.
