Introducing the 2010 Lincoln MKZ

The battle for supremacy on entry level sedan continues with the 2010 Lincoln MKZ. The model, in terms of specs and design, is aimed to compete directly with Mercury Milan and Fusion with a few upgrades to offer. The model comes in two versions: the front-wheel drive which will cost you no less than $34,900 and the four-wheel drive which bumps the price to $36,800. If you’ve been following the prices offered on the model, the latest MKZ is $2,000 higher than its predecessor.

Although the price is a little bit steep for an entry level sedan, the manufacturer tries to justify its pricing with its design, performance and accessories. The 2010 Lincoln MKZ is definitely sleeker with its redesigned front and rear. Sleeker contours complement the extended tail lamps which make the car appear longer. It’s a standard business model sedan but with finesse because of those contours and redesigned front.

Under the hood, the 2010 Lincoln MKZ is no pushover. Featuring the V6 Duratec engine, the car is set to provide 263 horsepower. With this engine, your car can go from 0-60mph in seven seconds. Control and power has been dramatically improved because of the “select shift” auto transmission. This feature upgrades the control and power of the front wheel. In the case of four-wheel drives, the select shift feature pushes power to all its wheels.

The additional feature of 2010 Lincoln MKZ is the BLIS or Blind Spot Information System offering alerts and guide when backing up. The Cross Traffic Alert or CTA will help drivers to safely navigate the car in traffic. The car is basically a “user friendly” sedan with relatively powerful engine.
