Once drivers of Stroudsburg, Lehigh Valley, and Nazareth have a taste for everything this impressive sedan has to offer, you'll be rushing over to get an idea of what life's like behind the wheel.

Serene Handling and a Punchy Performance

 As soon as you turn on the ignition of the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, you'll feel the power of the all-new and optional 3.0L V6 motor waiting to be unleashed. Pushing out 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, this vehicle has all the brawn to handle any sharp turn or quick maneuver.

When you finally see a parting in the sea of traffic, this engine will be ready to fly forward and carry you home.

Even if you opt for this sedan's base motor, you'll be spurred onward thanks to the engine's ability to deliver 188 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque. With those numbers, you'll never have to settle for a mediocre powertrain.

When it comes to taking on the road, the Lincoln MKZ is a well-experienced veteran. The available Dynamic Torque Vectoring makes use of its sport-tuned suspension and continuously controlled dampening to give you one of the most composed drives on the market.

In combination with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, this sedan can actively adapt to road conditions for safety and stability no matter what.

If you're someone who finds themselves on the open road often, having a drive that aligns with your mood is necessary. The feel of a manually controlled speedster is now at your fingertips with the six-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission. Plus, the optional driving modes offer up a choice of comfort, normal, and sport to change the personality of your car in an instant.

2017 Lincoln MKZ: Freshly Redesigned with You in Mind

The moment you see the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, you'll have a hard time taking your eyes off of this sedan's sleek, new look. The updated grille balances the cleanly designed LED headlights and affords an aggressive appearance for this vehicle.

On top of that, the fresh shape of the headlights allows for added visibility at night and allows for potent brightness while also using less energy than standard lightbulbs.

The Lincoln MKZ also uses sensors to detect when you're approaching the vehicle with your keys in hand. In response, the headlamps turns on, the Lincoln welcome mats illuminates the ground below the side mirrors, and light shines behind the door handles for easy access.

An Engaging and Soothing Interior

 When you have a long drive ahead of you, comfort is of the utmost importance. With the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, you'll never be uncomfortable due to the fine materials and accents within its cabin. Both the front and passenger's seats have heating and cooling functions and are trimmed with Bridge of Weir™ leather that keep you satisfied and engaged.

To take things a step further, the optional heated steering wheel and heated rear seating ensure that everyone in your vehicle stays warm and content. After a long day of work, you'll revel in the available Active Motion® front seating that contains rolling motion along the seatback to relax your muscles.

The Lincoln MKZ prides itself on its peaceful interior. To maintain those remarkably tranquil surroundings, Active Noise Control buffers outdoor noises by emitting sound waves through the audio system. That way, you won't be startled by disruptive car horns and other traffic sounds.

Your Entertainment and Technology Haven

Let's face it. It's tough to sit in your vehicle for hours without some of the best tunes and radio shows. Luckily, when you choose the 2017 Lincoln MKZ as your next vehicle, your music will be heard more clearly than ever and the latest technology will be at your finger tips. 

The optional Revel® audio system provides 14 speakers and a 12-channel Class D amplifier with QuantumLogic® surround sound for a thrilling entertainment experience. In addition, audience and on stage listening modes allow you to customize how you hear each song so you can enjoy your favorite artists like never before.

All of these controls can be accessed from the standard and user-friendly SYNC® 3 infotainment system that operates from an eight-inch touchscreen. This setup can also be safely adjusted while driving with its voice-activated technology. That way, you don't have to lift your hands from the wheel to call a friend or change the SiriusXM® station.

As if that weren't enough, the optional navigation display offers pinch-to-zoom functionality so you can easily see your destination. Also, SiriusXM Traffic™ pairs with each map and will update your route based on traffic patterns and road conditions to get you to your friend's dinner party without any hassle.

Even if you take every precaution on the road, that doesn't mean other drivers will do the same. To help keep you and your loved ones out of harm's way, the Lincoln MKZ provides a suite of available driver assistance technologies.

Some of these gadgets include the BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System), the Lane Keeping System, and Pre-Collision Assist. Each one of these tools provides alerts when a dangerous situation is detected and can engage your vehicle to help you avoid an accident.
