Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

2019 Lincoln MKZ review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Lincoln MKZ?

The Lincoln MKZ is a mid-size entry-luxury sedan that seats five. Power comes from a 245-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 rated at 350 or 400 hp. Both engines team with a six-speed automatic transmission, and the MKZ offers front- or all-wheel drive. A front-wheel-drive gas-electric MKZ Hybrid is also offered. Competitors include the Acura TLX, Lexus ES and Volvo S60.

What’s New on the 2019 Lincoln MKZ?

New standard active safety features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high-beam headlights. Rain-sensing windshield wipers are also now standard, and the MKZ Hybrid gets standard adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability.

What Features in the 2019 Lincoln MKZ Are Most Important?

Standard features include an adaptive suspension, 18-inch aluminum wheels, rear parking sensors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, remote start, a push-button gear selector, a touchscreen multimedia system, heated front seats and a split-folding backseat. Available features include a power-adjustable steering column, a power trunk lid, a heated steering wheel, navigation, a choice of two Revel premium stereos, leather-trimmed seats, heated rear seats and inflatable rear seat belts.

Should I Buy the 2019 Lincoln MKZ?

The extra standard safety features are a welcome addition, and the MKZ has easy-to-use tech features, too. We like how the fuel-efficient MKZ Hybrid has the same starting price as the regular MKZ. There are some questionable design choices, however, like the car’s push-button gear selector.

Lincoln lowest quality of car

My vehicle was a certified pre owned. A dealershop called Orisman Ford and Lincoln of alexandria sold me this bad car with a broken rooftop as a teqard for being a loyal customer after paying of my first car within less than 2 years and biying the next car at their dealership. Ever since i only have problems that can not be tesopbed by dealership that sold it to me no by manufactirer tjat certifies a broken var with broken rooftop in the first place.what they did to me both was to expect from street level rootless gangsters that dont have good sense of how far they could go due to brain limitations. They sold me the worst car for the highest lrice! I have at least 30 unsolved issues be it mechanical, transmission, cosmetically the car is a mess. The paint is falling off the buttons that i used. I had a honda accord more than 20 years old. The paint was like new. Who has ever seen paintfalling off???, electrical etc etc. i wish there was a way to upload at least pics of paint falling off!!!


A+ Rating

just purchase an extremely low miles off lease 2019 MKZ from a local dealer. This car is extremly comfortable and has excellent handling and comfortable ride. Sound system is one of the best i have heard.The 2.0 turbo is powerful and quite. I am normally partial to GM, but this Ford product tops the list. Very satisisfied with this vehicle.


Love-love-love this car - it’s my 4th

Car has exceeded my expectations - comfort & performance - lots of leg room - smooth ride - great audio system - user friendly navigation system
