Lincoln MKZ Models and MKZ History

In 2007, Lincoln announced the name-change, renaming the Zephyr to the MKZ. They also introduced the new name with some major updates. These included tech updates like satellite radio (optional), a new drivetrain warranty that spanned six years/70,000-miles, and a larger, more powerful engine; a 3.5-liter V6 that could produce 263 horsepower (43 more horsepower than the previous year’s model). The 2008 MKZ offered ventilated and climate-controlled seats as well as satellite radio as standard options. The Synch communication system was introduced as standard gear, too, with new voice-command, and reverse parking sensors were introduced as an optional upgrade. The only notable change for the 2009 model year was the addition of standard electronic stability control. The 2010 MKZ received a lengthy list of updates and updates. Notably, it included better fuel economy, an updated interior and exterior style, a new gauge cluster, and updates to various optional packages and trim levels. While no changes were made for the 2011 model, the 2012 version rolled off the line completely redesigned. The MKZ would carry over to 2014 relatively unchanged.
