The first production Lincoln to debut the brand’s new face, the 2017 Lincoln MkZ is expected to reach showrooms within the next few months. Like the Continental a few days ago, Lincoln has priced their new midsize sedan as well.
The 2017 MkZ will start at $35,010, which is actually $180 cheaper than the outgoing model. Like the price since its inception, the MkZ Hybrid will be priced the same as the base engine model. The MkZ comes standard with 2.0 I-4 GTDI, but the more interesting option is the new “Nano” 3.0 V-6 GTDI making up to 400 horsepower when selected with all-wheel-drive. The price for a 3.0-liter will set you back $39,510, $42,650 with AWD.
By comparison, the larger Lincoln Continental starts at $45,485 with the 3.0 V-6 GTDI costing around $65,000 with AWD. MkZ pricing still keeps it cheaper than the Lexus ES, though the ES does not offer up to 400 hp. Pricing for Lincoln’s top-tier “Black Label” MKZ has not yet been announced.
The luxury midsize sedan will come standard or available with a panoramic glass roof, Revel audio system, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and more technology features.
The 2017 Lincoln MKZ will begin rolling into showrooms later this summer.
