There are two Lincoln MKZ trims, the Standard MKZ, and the Reserve MKZ. As standard, both are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’s paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox, both trims are equipped with front-wheel drive systems with all-wheel-drive systems available. A more powerful 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 is available for the Reserve MKZ only. Features are plentiful in even the Standard MKZ, though, to the extent expected from a luxury vehicle, there’s a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, 12-way power-adjustable heated front seats with driver-side memory settings, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Upgrading to the Reserve MKZ sees features such as a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, 14-way power-adjustable heated front seats, and a power moonroof with rear-window power sunshade. Both trims also come standard with Lincoln’s Co-Pilot360 suite of driver assists, which includes auto high-beam headlights, blind-spot detection with cross-traffic alert, a lane keep system, rearview camera, and pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, and dynamic brake support.
