Lincoln is shooting for full luxury status with the MKZ’s recent redesign, and features carried over from the concept will help buyers take notice. These are most evident in back, where stylish LED taillights run the width of the rear and exhaust outlets with classy-looking bezels accent the bumper.
I was leery of a push-button gear selector from the company that makes MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch, since gear selection is an important step to get right the first time. The buttons, located on the driver’s side of the center dashboard, look to be traditional types that depress into the panel. We’ll have to report back once we get behind the wheel because we weren’t allowed to sit in the MKZ on the show floor or touch anything inside.
