The Lincoln MKZ is an unqualified success, leading Lincoln’s product resurgence by providing a true American mid-size luxury sedan that’s appealing to entry-level luxury buyers. Posting continued year-over-year sales growth, the Lincoln MKZ has drawn new customers to the Lincoln brand by offering sophisticated American design, an award-winning premium interior and a long list of innovative and exclusive features at a value unheard of in the luxury segment.
In February 2006 at the Chicago Auto Show ,the 2007 MKZ was first shown.
Lincoln is changing the name of its new Zephyr sedan to MKZ (pronounced Mark Zee).
Since its debut last year, Zephyr has paved the way for the Lincoln MKZ with a solid foundation in customer satisfaction and quality.
It brings this entry-level sedan under Lincoln’s new alphanumeric naming system,but has the potential to confuse consumers.
Following the strong sales launch of the Lincoln Zephyr in the autumn of 2005, the entry-level luxury sedan is reborn for the 2007 model year with a new, more powerful 3.5-liter V-6 engine, a newly designed front end, more traction with available all-wheel drive (AWD) and a new name - Lincoln MKZ.
