Outer beauty. Inner strength. The Lincoln Motor Company has gone to extraordinary lengths to give the exterior of the 2018 MKZ an exceptional level of grace and elegance. An equal amount of effort has been applied to develop and harness the capabilities of an available Twin-Turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine. This engine delivers 400 horsepower and 400 lb.- ft. of torque,* making the 2018 Lincoln MKZ one of the most powerful and compelling Lincoln vehicles to ever take to the road. *When equipped with available AWD. Horsepower and torque ratings achieved with 93-octane fuel.
The similarities are surprising. The shared features between the MKZ Hybrid and its gas counterpart go well beyond the exterior. Designers and engineers worked hand in hand to deliver a hybrid powertrain that has an EPA-estimated 41 miles to the gallon in the city,* while keeping almost every surface, button, knob and interior finish exactly the same. Plus, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is the only hybrid in its class with the same starting price as its gas-powered counterpart.** *EPA-estimated rating of 41 city/38 hwy/40 combined mpg. Actual mileage may vary. **Class is Luxury Midsize Hybrid Sedans based on Lincoln segmentation.

with stop-and-go capability offers an enjoyable and confident drive. When the MKZ is in adaptive cruise mode, a radar scans the road ahead and detects slower traffic ahead. The MKZ can then automatically brake and accelerate to keep you at your set speed or follow at a preset distance with the pace of traffic when speeds are below your set speed. With the addition of stop-and-go, the feature can bring your vehicle to a complete stop in stopped traffic and restart it as traffic begins to move.*...less

LINCOLN DRIVE CONTROL
ACTIVE NOISE CONTROL (ANC)
Active Noise Control (ANC) heightens overall cabin sound quality by reducing unwanted noise while enhancing sound that is desired. Microphones monitor the sound profile of the cabin, which is then inverted by a signal processor to create an opposing acoustic wave through the speakers. When the opposing wave meets the original sound wave, they cancel each other out, providing a more pleasant driving experience.
The adaptive suspension in the Lincoln MKZ uses an available suite of sensors to monitor and adjust the suspension. Plus, you can select the operating mode—Comfort, Normal or Sport—that suits the driving experience you prefer, from exceptional ride quality to a spirited, sporty feel.
ELECTRIC POWER-ASSISTED STEERING (EPAS)
Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) provides an easy, fluid steering feel at low speeds and a firmer, more controlled feel at higher speeds. It also continuously adapts to changing road conditions and compensates for surface irregularities.
