The entry-level sedan in the Ford's premium car brand lineup, the 2011 Lincoln MKZ continues to assert itself as an effective introduction to the pleasures of American luxury. Exterior look and even overall performance can benefit from the 2011 MKZ sedan's Sport Appearance Package. Featuring prominent 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, the Lincoln MKZ suspension is specially tuned for aggression. Every 2011 Lincoln MKZ includes standard Lincoln SYNC, power windows, reverse-sensing system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a 9-speaker, 360-watt sound system. A 14-speaker THX II 5.1 surround sound and a Sirius-guided navigation unit are optional on the 2011 Lincoln MKZ sedan. Available as either front-wheel or all-wheel drive configurations, the 2011 MKZ models are powered through a 3.5 liter V-6 engine. Producing 263 horsepower, this engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission for average fuel economy of over 22 miles per gallon with front-wheel drive or over 20 miles per gallon fitted to all-wheel drive. Combining a 2.5 liter Atkinson cycle inline-4 engine to a 275-volt electric motor for 191 horsepower altogether, the 2011 Lincoln MKZ hybrid is projected to deliver 41 miles per gallon city or 36 miles per gallon through highway driving.
