Utterly forgettable, the Zephyr went on sale in 2006 aimed at young luxury buyers as a replacement to the rear-wheel drive LS.
Generally uninspiring, the 3.5-liter version equipped with all-wheel drive can be had for cheap. That’s probably because sales turned out to be a bigger flop than Stephen Feck’s failed dive at the London Olympics.
Further ensuring the Zephyr won’t be remembered, Lincoln then made the switch away from proper names, changing the car to the MKZ. As a result the Zephyr was sold only for the 2006 model year.
