2015 Lincoln MKZ Huntsville AL
For years, the mission to combine all-world luxury with iconic American performance has been, to be generous, tough to achieve convincingly. Automakers have found that you can’t simply put leather seats on a ho-hum performance platform and call it a day. “Just putting lipstick on a pig,” or some similar argument, was pretty common.
The 2015 Lincoln MKZ near Huntsville AL is changing all of that. Offered in both a hybrid or in a standard gas-powered configuration, the MKZ is the rare vehicle that boasts a performance profile as noteworthy as its design, and the result is something that has been a game-changer for luxury-minded Alabama drivers. The standard offering is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine rated for 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, which translates up to 33 highway mpg and a zero-to-sixty sprint of roughly seven seconds. Those looking for a greater degree of performance, meanwhile, might enjoy the muscle afforded by the 3.7L V6 configuration, which boosts the power numbers to 300 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque, even as it achieves up to 28 highway mpg.
Coming soon to the MKZ lineup is the MKZ hybrid, which pairs a 2.0L four-cylinder engine with an electric motor to produce a total of 188 hp. It also employs a continuously variable transmission (CVT), resulting in an overall output of 38 combined mpg.
Whether in the standard engine configuration or in the available hybrid, the 2015 Lincoln MKZ is a savvy mix of performance and refinement that is not to be ignored.
