2010 LINCOLN MKZ:Features and Speciifcation Review

MUCH OF the Lexus ES's sales success(64,000 sold in 2008 versus 30,000 for the Lincoln MKZ) can be attributed to a tranquil driving experience—its smooth ride, coddling accoutrements, and pin-drop-quiet cabin. According to Lincoln, though, the significantly freshened 2010 MKZ betters the ES in those lespecvs and, at $34,965 to start, does so for S180 less.
To improve ride and handling,Lincoln retimed the springs and dampers, tweaked the reat-suspension geometry, and,for enthusiasts, added a sport package that includes firmer springs, larger anti-roll bars, andI8-inch alloys. New variable-assist power steering system and largerbrakes round out the chassis upgrades, while a revised AWD system remains an $1890 option.
Lincoln's signature split-wing grille highlights the list of exterior mods, among which are fresh sheet metal for the A-pillar, aredesigned decklid, and larger LED tail lamps. Inside, the changesate anything but subtle. Gone are the square, retro gauges, passableleather and plastic trim, and tali,boxy dash. In are modern, rounddials, supple Bridge of Weir hidesfrom Scotland, aluminum or wood trim, and an elegant, flowing dash,The (VIKZ received myriad noise mufflers, notably ain acoustic laminated windshield and a thicket back window, which make it a mote serene transporter than the ES, On the safety side, the MKZ now boasts an available Blind Spot Information System withi CrossTraffic Alert, which warns when another vehicle resides in a blindspot or when there is laterally approaching traffic while reversing.
Lincoln massaged the' 3.5-liter,263-horseV-6, recalibrating the ECU and incorpotati ng new induction. Asa result, the engine note is deeper and more euphonious, and the O-10-6O time is said to be quicker, dtopping about a half-second. Further,the MKZ gets a Select Shift six-speedauto, which not only offers a manual mode but also Lays it outcorrectly—forward for downshifts,backward for upshifts.
