2017 Lincoln MKC Review
Few people know that this is Ford’s premium division was the best-selling in the class until the mid-1990s, when he followed a big drop caused by excessive dividing mechanics and design line with Ford. Earlier this year, Lincoln introduced the Continental concept at the Auto Show in New York, whose production model is expected in 2016, and now is launching the refreshed MKZ. Presented to the last annual auto show in Los Angeles, the MKZ is a product with a new Lincoln design school and a new powerful engine.
In this way, Lincoln hopes to make a bigger difference compared to the Ford Fusion, the MKZ, which shares a platform and a good part of the mechanics, but also attack the popular Germans, Cadillac and Lexus with a completely different strategy. Lincoln does not want his product to be as sporty German rivals, but to be quiet and comfortable ride for longer.
While the last part and did not suffer major changes, the front is inspired by the concept of Continental, while the interior is almost identical to the predecessor. The refreshed model provides a high number of security measures which establishes certain to get maximum marks in crash tests. In many ways 2017 MKZ is a very important model for Lincoln and he should start a new era for the company. The initial results are very promising and give us hope that Lincoln can be returned to its former glory.
But that does not mean he does not have the power and the new 2017 Lincoln MKC 3.0L EcoBoost (turbocharged) V6 engine will be one of the most powerful in its class. It develops 400 hp with drive to all four wheels, and 50 hp less with a front-wheel drive, while torque is 542 Nm in both cases. This engine is exclusive to Lincoln and will not be offered in any Ford, and also not to use the EcoBoost label but will be known as the 3.0T. For those who need it too, the standard engine is still 2.0L EcoBoost I4 with 245 hp, also with uzbor front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Somewhat later, the offer will be extended with a hybrid, for whom Lincoln says that accounts for about 30% of total sales MKZ. Other mechanical changes related to a modified suspension, and for which many elements borrowed from the Ford Focus RS, and therefore MKZ could also have good results on the track. MKZ still shares a platform with the Ford Fusion, but thanks to a new design that certainly will not notice.
