Lincoln has announced pricing for the revised 2017 MKZ, which will start at $35,935.
That is actually about $180 less than the starting price of its predecessor, though once it is fully dressed, the MKZ’s price tag can hit $60,000. Moving on from the base Premiere model, the Select costs $37,685, the Reserve goes for $40,435 and the top-trim Black Label will sell for $48,595.
Two base powertrains are offered: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 240 horsepower or a hybrid powertrain that makes 188 hp and is supposed to get 40 mpg. The turbocharged cars will offer all-wheel drive as an option for $1,890 while hybrid models are all front-wheel drive.
For more grunt, buyers can spend an extra $2,750 on front-drive models or $4,000 on all-wheel drive models to get the new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, which makes 350 hp on those front-drive models while all-wheel drive cars get 400 hp.
Some other option packages are available as well, such as the driver’s package, available on Black Label and Reserve models for $2,395 and $3,395 respectively. It includes chassis tweaks, revised shocks and some punched-up visuals. A set of $595 multi-contour seats is also included in the package.
A technology package is available for $2,395 that brings plenty of active safety technology, a massive panoramic sunroof can be had for between $1,795 and $2,995 depending on trim and a 20-speaker upgraded audio system is also available on all trims and is standard on Black Label cars.
The redesigned 2017 Lincoln MKZ should hit dealers this summer.
