2016 Lincoln MKZ Chicago IL

It's been a long time since the first time Lincoln became a nameplate that was highly sought-after. Since then, the company has only improved, turning the brand into something far better that can stand as far out from the competition as possible, not to mention from their very own Ford vehicles. One such example of this would be the 2016 Lincoln MKZ, which doesn't look like a carbon copy of the Ford Fusion mold it came from. Instead, it has its own brand new styling that gives it a distinct look. Beneath that great exterior is yet another pleasant surprise. Although it is still reminiscent of the Ford Fusion, there's nothing bad to say about it. Be sure to stop by your local Chicago Lincoln MKZ dealer to request 2016 Lincoln MKZ specials from Fox Lincoln Chicago or Chicagoland 2016 Lincoln MKZ Internet specials and discounts.


2016 Lincoln MKZ Interior Inside the 2016 Lincoln MKZ Chicago IL is a somewhat futuristic look thanks to the console and center stack featuring no knobs or buttons at all. Although this is a distinctive aesthetic that sets it out, the materials are otherwise reminiscent of what you would find in the Fusion. Of course, that's not a bad thing; the silver-colored plastic look like beautifully brushed metal, and drivers can enjoy transmission selector buttons on the dashboard rather than on the console or the steering wheel. To take it a step further, the MKZ provides 15.4 cubic feet with the standard options, but opting for the hybrid reduces it to 11.1 cubic feet to accommodate the battery.

A midsize luxury sedan, the 2016 Lincoln MKZ Chicago IL features two choices of trim: the base and the Black Label. Both of these are also choices for those who want the MKZ Hybrid.

2016 Lincoln MKZ Powertrain

As previously stated, there are three engine choices for the 2016 Lincoln MKZ Chicago IL. The base is the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which generates 240 horses and 270 lb-ft when equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is an option, but front-wheel drive is the standard setup. An MKZ with all-wheel drive sporting the base engine can hit 60 miles per hour in 7.2 seconds, which is slightly slower than the average class time, but not too far behind. With the hybrid equipped with the base engine, an electric motor is added to include 188 horses. The power goes to the front two wheels via CVT, and it reaches 60 in 8.9 seconds.

Depending on your configuration, you will either get a four-cylinder turbocharged engine or a V6 engine, both of which come with all-wheel drive as an available choice. Alternatively, drivers can also opt for the hybrid powertrain instead. The quality of ride is much like what you would expect from a sedan, complete with active noise cancellation as well as an adaptive suspension. Those who opt for the Select and Reserve package can get their choice of 19-inch wheels, surround-sound stereo, inflatable rear seatbelts and either a standard or panoramic sunroof. In either case, you can also opt for the Technology package to include forward collision warning, lane departure warning and intervention, automated parallel parking, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beam control. With the Reserve, you can get the Summer Tire Handling package for 19-inch wheels and a sport-tuned steering and suspension system.

2016 Lincoln MKZ Safety

Safety features on the MKZ are much like you'd find on any other Lincoln: traction control, stability control, front knee airbags, side curtain airbags, front side-impact airbags, antilock disc brakes, rear parking sensors and a rearview camera. Another standard option for parents includes the MyKey system that limits the volume of the radio and the speed of the vehicle for young drivers. Some other equipment that can be added on includes rear cross-traffic alerts, a forward collision system with intervention brakes, inflatable rear seatbelts and a lane departure and intervention system. The all-season tires can bring the vehicle to a halt in 121 feet, whereas the 2016 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid could stop in 120 feet. Both numbers are considered average for the segment.When you're ready to give the 2016 Lincoln MKZ a test drive, feel free to stop by your local Chicago Lincoln MKZ dealer to learn more about Chicagoland 2016 Lincoln MKZ Internet specials or to request 2016 Lincoln MKZ specials from Fox Lincoln Chicago. With the all-season 18-inch tires, this MKZ is a compliant and comfortably quiet ride that will carry you through all kinds of terrain. That's exactly what you'd expect from a Lincoln. Best of all, any of the three engines are a great choice since they're all quite similar to one another.
