Video: All-New 2013 Lincoln MKZ Launched in NYC

Video

Ford’s luxury arm was reborn this month with the launch of the completely redesigned MKZ.

Lincoln has released exclusive footage from the 2013 Lincoln MKZ launch event, which took place at the New York Auto Show last month. Based on the same platform as the also redesigned 2013 Fusion/Mondeo, the MKZ will begin a new direction for the brand in their attempt to appeal to younger buyers. In order to satisfy those customers, Lincoln will be offering three different engines options.

It comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost with 240hp and 270lb-ft of torque and the 3.7-liter V6 with 300hp and 277lb-ft. AWD is optional for both gasoline engines mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Looking inside and it's immediately apparent that Lincoln invested lots of time and money into the beautiful interior. It has a full LCD instrument panel featuring the latest version of the Ford SYNC infotainment system along with MyLincoln Touch. In terms of safety features, the automaker is particularly proud of their Lincoln Drive Control.

It basically delivers a refined ride and engaging driving dynamics by integrating multiple systems such as the engine, transmission, body and chassis, throughout any sort of driving condition. Its goal is to continuously monitor these factors in order to deliver the best ride possible. Other interior features include a push button start gear selector, standard Active Noise Control, wood trim, and heated seats. There are also camera- and radar-based driving aids such as a lane check system, adaptive cruise control, and a collision warning system. But what Lincoln is particularly keen on is their new wide open panoramic roof system.
