2008 Lincoln MKZ Trims

AWD

Avg. Price: $14,229

Drivers seeking a stylish sports sedan with enhanced handling and traction can opt for the 2008 Lincoln MKZ AWD, which comes with an Intelligent All Wheel Drive system that quickly delivers power to the wheels with the most traction if others are experiencing slippage. This enhances the car's grip on the road in even the worst conditions, according to Lincoln.

The MKZ AWD model includes a number of new standard features for 2008, such as premium leather seats that are power-adjustable and heated in the front, as well as cooled (available as an option the previous year). Other standard features for 2008 include a tire pressure monitoring system, Sirius satellite radio, and a Reverse Sensing System that assists drivers with rear audible alerts when parking.

Later in the 2008 model year, Lincoln will also add the new Sync system as standard equipment. Developed by Ford/Lincoln in conjunction with Microsoft, it provides a hand's-free, voice-activated communication system for mobile phones and the audio system, as well as the optional navigation system.

A 263-horsepower Duratec V6 engine provides plenty of power for the MKZ AWD model. The engine links to a six-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth, barely perceptible shifting to help improve fuel efficiency.

Safety features include six standard airbags, with first- and second-row side-curtain airbags that help protect passengers' heads in the event of an accident. Other safety features include antilock brakes and a durable safety cage that diverts impact energy away from the passenger cabin.
