2018 Lincoln MKZ


Lincoln MKZ marries powerful inner strength to stunning form. The standard 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 engine delivers 400 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque while achieving an EPA-estimated rating of 21 city/31 hwy mpg. The Lincoln MKZ offers features that allow drivers to connect with the road. Continuously Controlled Damping - with three operating modes (Comfort, Normal or Sport) - monitors and adjusts the suspension depending upon your preferences. Electronic Power Assisted Steering provides a fluid steering feel at low speeds and a firmer, more controlled feel at higher speeds. Adaptive cruise control knows when changes are coming up ahead and brakes or accelerates to adjust to your set speed or the pace of traffic. The Lincoln MKZ transports drivers and passengers with grace and dynamism, no matter where they are headed.


The Lincoln MKZ invites drivers to experience luxury from the very first. When you near your vehicle key in hand, approach detection technology triggers an elegant sequence of warm lighting and projects a welcome mat at your feet. Once inside, customizable ambient lighting sets the stage for your drive. The MKZ is designed to be luxurious from the ground up. Lincoln's available wheel line-up for the MKZ allows drivers to choose their perfect brand of luxury with each vehicle, a signature star-motif grille exudes confidence and a retractable panoramic glass roof opens passengers to new possiblities at the push of a button. Passengers are supported all the while by Bridge of Weir™ leather-trimmed seating.


Lincoln MKZ harnesses technology to improve the safety of drivers and their passengers while offering luxury entertainment. The voice-activated SYNC 3 system allows users to make music choices, phone calls and text messages hands-free. The SYNC Applink feature lets you enjoy certain apps from your phone without taking your hands off the wheel. A state-of-the-art Revel Audio System plays music as it was meant to be heard. Other integral features - such as the available lane-keeping system, adaptive headlamps and available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection - assist drivers in tight spots, providing added security to passengers and pedestrians alike.

COMPARISON: 2017 Lincoln MKZ to 2016 Lexus ES 350

The Lexus ES 350 benefits from a reputation for reliability and resale value but falls short in terms of driving dynamics. Changes for 2016 are focused on styling updates to the front and rear; new wheels; and new safety, connectivity and multimedia technology. See the advantages Lincoln MKZ offers luxury clients.

Competitive Perceptions

Lincoln Reality

Selling Luxury

The Lexus ES 350 is positioned as defining the entry luxury segment.

Lincoln MKZ offers a much broader menu of standard and optional equipment, and many features that are not available at any price on the ES 350, including all-wheel drive, push-button shift, inflatable rear safety belts and heated rear outboard seats.

"Any way you measure it, Lincoln MKZ is a better value, with more standard equipment, a broader array of available options and a lower starting price. It also offers more engine choices and the sure-footedness of available all-wheel drive."

The ES 350 offers numerous safety features.

The standard and optional safety features on Lincoln MKZ are equally impressive and include some, such as inflatable rear safety belts, that are not available at any cost on the ES 350.

"Lincoln MKZ takes a holistic approach to passenger safety, providing a wealth of standard and optional equipment to help mitigate injury in the event the unavoidable occurs, and provide assistance after."

Like nearly all Lexus vehicles, the ES 350 is focused on delivering a refined driving experience.

Lincoln builds cars that reward the driver while providing sophistication and comfort through:

  • Lincoln Drive Control: Continuously controlled damping (CCD) with driver-selectable modes (Comfort, Normal or Sport); electric power-assisted steering (EPAS); active noise control.
  • Available all-wheel drive
  • Dynamic Torque Vectoring (included with the Driver's Package)
  • Three engine choices, including a twin-turbo 3.0L GTDI V6

"Lincoln MKZ gives the driver choices, with multiple driving modes that can be selected based on preference or road conditions. It also offers a choice of three powertrains, including a highly sophisticated, 400-horsepower(2) (AWD) twin-turbo 3.0L GTDI V6. The additional performance of all-wheel drive isn't available at any cost on the ES 350."

COMPARISON: 2017 Lincoln MKZ to 2016 Acura TLX

Introduced for the 2015 model year, Acura TLX has done well for the brand, garnering a number of accolades and positive press reviews. Featuring a starting price of $32,615, TLX offers two engine choices, two transmission choices (8- and 9-speed automatics), and FWD and AWD configurations. There are no significant changes for 2016. See the advantages Lincoln MKZ offers.

Competitive Perceptions

Lincoln Reality

Selling Luxury

Acura TLX delivers nimble performance - no matter the configuration - and offers a choice of two drivetrains: the 2.4L DOHC I-4 and the 3.5L SOHC V6.

Lincoln MKZ offers an updated standard single-turbocharged, twin-scroll 2.0L GTDI I-4 and the newly introduced, available twin-turbo 3.0L GTDI V6(2) for optimal choice. Both are significantly more powerful than their Acura counterparts.

MKZ also offers a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle I-4 hybrid engine for those who are more focused on fuel economy.

All-wheel drive is available on all Lincoln MKZ trim levels with either gas engine. On TLX, all-wheel drive is available only with the V6 engine.

"Lincoln MKZ offers more configurations than TLX, such as available all-wheel drive with either the 2.0L or 3.0L engine. Further, you can opt for the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, which is not available on the TLX. All the way around, Lincoln MKZ gives you more choices."

Acura TLX offers a higher value for first-time luxury buyers.

Take a closer look and you'll find that Lincoln MKZ delivers some important advantages that are not available at any cost on TLX, including:

  • Standard 18-inch aluminum wheels on base models
  • Available 19-inch aluminum wheels
  • Available heated outboard rear seats
  • Available inflatable rear safety belts
  • Available panoramic retractable Vista Roof®

"Lincoln MKZ delivers more standard content than TLX and a number of features that are not available at any cost on TLX."

TLX promises to deliver on its "Synergy Between Man and Machine" product direction, characterized as, "at the will of the driver with intuitive, exhilarating and confidence-inspiring driving dynamics."


  • 2.4L I-4 engine: 206 horsepower; 24 city/35 hwy mpg; premium 91-octane fuel
  • 17-inch wheels
  • Precision All-wheel Steer (P-AWS)
  • Integrated Dynamics System: Driver-selectable ECON, Sport, Sport+ or Normal modes

Lincoln MKZ more than measures up when it comes to spirited driving experiences, plus features not available on Acura TLX.


  • Updated 2.0L GTDI I-4: 245 horsepower (using 93-octane fuel); 275 lb.-ft. of torque (using 93-octane fuel); 21 city/31 hwy mpg.
  • 18-inch aluminum wheels
  • Lincoln Drive Control: Active noise control; Continuously controlled damping (CCD); Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS); Driver-selectable Sport, Comfort, Normal modes

"When it comes to advanced driving dynamics, Lincoln MKZ provides it as standard equipment with the enjoyment of the driver-selectable Lincoln Drive Control, electric power-assisted steering and 18-inch aluminum wheels."
