Lincoln is desperate for one hot new model in its lineup, just not this hot. At the reveal of the new MKZ Concept at the Detroit Auto Show this week the car in question began to smoke. Embarrassed Lincoln reps ushered giggling journalists away with jokes aplenty. Reception of the new Lincoln wasn’t mixed, it was decidedly negative and the only more appropriate fate for the MKZ concept would have been if it had blown up. You know… because it bombed.

    Your comments are rude and unfounded. The buzz on the car has been VERY positive. This was really unnecessary to even post this useless article.

    Autoguide earned more credit from me today. The only outlet I know of to report on this. I tip my hat.

    If it had been a Cadillac smoking, the press would have had a field day and, it’s just a guess but, I bet mmb777e would be making comments like “typical Government Motors junk.”

    Well, look at the bright side…..the car was a concept and not parked in someone’s garage overnight to burst into flames like my Lincoln Mark VIII did due to the notorious brake deactivation switch which Ford NEVER compensated me and denied the problem…and others suffered worse fates!

    Karma will get you, and it’s a bitch! :)

    I bet you really enjoyed watching that video then. It’s not just a car smoking, it’s a whole brand. What a PR disaster.
