2010 Lincoln MKZ Trims

AWD

Avg. Price: $18,644

Flush with nearly all the standard toys modern automobile technology can provide, the 2010 Lincoln MKZ AWD additionally delivers standard full-time all-wheel drive (AWD) security. The toys, meanwhile, include leather upholstery, multi-level heated and power-adjustable front bucket seats, power accessories including heated power mirrors and keypad power door locks, telescoping tilt-wheel steering, dual-zone climate control, Ford’s state-of-the-art SYNC infotainment with Bluetooth technology, 6-CD changer, satellite radio, and a USB connection. Options include a power moonroof, stand-alone DVD navigation and audio/video capability, THX-certified premium audio, and the new-for-2010 Sport Appearance Package, with upgraded exterior and interior trim, cashmere leather upholstery, 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, and a sport-tuned suspension.

Safety features for the 2010 MKZ AWD include standard four-wheel ABS, traction and stability control, side-mounted airbags, front and rear head airbags, remote anti-theft alarm, front fog/driving lights, SYNC safety messaging system, rear parking sensors, and a post-collision safety system. Available safety equipment includes the BLIS blind-spot warning system, daytime running lights, a rearview camera, and xenon HID cornering headlights.

Powering the 2010 MKZ AWD is a 263-hp 3.5-liter V6 that, with its accompanying six-speed auto-manual transmission, is able to lay down 249 lb-ft of torque. Variable valve timing helps this competent powerplant deliver an EPA-estimated 17/24 mpg, while a center-mounted, viscous, limited-slip differential ensures AWD traction all the time.

Base

Avg. Price: $18,279

Equipped identically to its all-wheel-drive sibling, the 2010 Lincoln MKZ Base is a front-wheel-drive (FWD), five-passenger sedan that’s long on plush refinement and ride comfort, while its refreshed styling both inside and out is apt to turn a head or two. Leather, aluminum, and wood predominate inside, while standard 17-inch alloys and an available new Sport Appearance Package with sport-tuned suspension and 18-inch polished aluminum wheels add to this automobile’s facile charm.

Again mirroring its traction-dominant AWD sibling, the 2010 MKZ Base sports a standard (and only) 3.5-liter variable-valve-timed V6 engine and six-speed auto-manual transmission that’ll net some 263 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque. The MKZ Base shines a bit brighter mileage-wise, however, getting an estimated 18/27 mpg.
