We just could not wait to get this review up and going for two reasons – one, as the 2019 Lincoln MKZ is expected to be launched anytime soon and the other being that it is expected that this model will be launched with a fresh look. Naturally, the news of another car going under a makeover was enough to get us searching for all information on the new model and even checking in with a few experts. Soon, we had enough to prep this review and so, let’s get to it right away, shall we?
2019 Lincoln MKZ, an overview:
The good news is that the 2019 Lincoln MKZ comes with a fresh and bolder design and from what we have seen so far, from pouring over all the leaked images, it does look good. That being said, ever since the car was first released just a few years earlier, it certainly seems to have gone from strength to strength. Marketed as a luxury sedan, it seems that the new Lincoln won’t be sold right away in the US which is more the pity but we expect it to make a comeback into the US market by the end of 2018 or the start of next year.
2019 Lincoln MKZ, under the hood:
The 2019 Lincoln MKZ comes with a refreshed look, and a bolder, newer front fascia, with more clearance under the wheels. It comes with the same grille but only enhanced better along with chrome accents, as well as LED headlights, LED, daytime running lights, cornering and fog lamps for the higher trims. As a luxury sedan, it certainly looks the part with sheet metal all wrapped around with slightly larger wheelbase.
This can only mean that the interior is also spacious, moving on, it comes with sleek and well-contoured side panels and a gently sloping roof which only enhances the effect on the rear end. The whole package certainly looks great from start to finish. As mentioned earlier, it comes with a larger clearance than before but there are no plans as of yet to introduce an off the road trim.
The detailing is as great as ever, and it also comes with retuned front and rear end bumpers which incidentally are also body colored. And of course, the higher trims also come with chrome accents for the air intake valves as well as exhaust, making the car stand out for all the right reasons.
2019 Lincoln MKZ, interior:
The 2019 Lincoln MKZ comes with more than few changes on the interior; it comes with a well-contoured dashboard with the instrument panel, right front, and center. It also comes with soft leather covered and cushioned seats, with climate control and all the requisite bells and whistles that set a luxury sedan apart from the rest.
It also comes with a large touchscreen infotainment panel that streams both Android Auto as well as Apple Play. And yes, it features more than a few safety features which are all the more essential these days.
ENGINE, RELEASE DATE, AND PRICE
The 2019 Lincoln MKZ comes with a hybrid powertrain, 1.5 liters turbocharged with 4 hose engine which should rate around 200 HP. It indeed is offered at many rates with the double-clutch system automatic transmission. It is expected to perform quite well as it gets launched later this year with the base price all set to be around $50000 for the top trim.
The car is certainly one for the books for it comes with a classy look and one that should help this luxury sedan sit apart from the rest of the competition.
