2017 Lincoln MKZ unveiled at LA Auto Show
  • Ford upgrades the Lincoln 2017 MKZ for the LA Auto Show!

It will be the first Lincoln sedan featuring the latest design of the brand.

The 2017 Lincoln MKZ mid-size sedan was unveiled at the LA auto show today. The display showed the new sedan has been upgraded in many ways for the LA auto show. The sedan will be available for sale by next summer and comes with three upgrades.

The interior, the trims and the engine of the sedan have all been upgraded. The Lincoln MKZ includes a freshened interior and additional sporty trim level. The engine of the Lincoln MKZ is a 3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. The 3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine generates 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.

Gone are the horizontal split-wing grilles from the Lincoln MKZ. Instead a new Lincoln logo mesh grille has been inserted in the Lincoln MKZ 2017. The new grilles were first shown on the Lincoln Continental flagship concept at the New York auto show.

The grille design will be featured in the entire upcoming line up of Lincoln vehicles. The grilles will become the new signature look of the Lincoln brand. 

For years Lincoln had the traditional waterfall grille. Then in 2013 the split grille with horizontal lines were introduced. However the grilles were further tweaked in each subsequent model. Finally Lincoln believes the design can have a signature look. 

“Our customers are looking for three attributes in a luxury midsize sedan – technologies that ease their everyday experience, a beautiful design that is crafted with attention to detail, and a vehicle with impressive power that makes it a pleasure to drive,” said Kumar Galhotra, president of Lincoln.

“The new Lincoln MKZ elevates all of these attributes – and many more – to create a compelling entry in this large and highly competitive portion of the luxury market.”
