After just one model year, Lincoln has renamed its Zephyr sedan MKZ. The mid-sized MKZ is Lincoln's entry-level model. It is intended to draw first-time (younger) buyers to the Lincoln brand. The MKZ offers clean exterior styling with modern lighting, a highly styled interior with a standard power leather seats, and other upscale interior trim appointements like aluminum and wood. For customization, optional features include a DVD-based navigation system and the unique THX-II certified audio system. Offered in both FWD and AWD versions, the MKZ is powered by 250 hp V6. A six-speed automatic transmission and 50-series Z-rated tires are notable standard features.
After just one model year, Ford changes the name of Zephyr to MKZ. The change is due to Lincoln's adoption of a 3-letter naming scheme. The MKZ also features an upgraded powertrain with a 3.5L Duratec 35 V6 and available AWD. The front fascia is subtly updated with a new grille.
