2017 Lincoln MKZ Black Label FWD Review
says:
I recently purchased a 2017 Lincoln MKZ Black Label Vineyard Edition I looked at both automobiles the ES350 and the MKZ is which I narrowed my choices down to Im glad I went with the MKZ as far as Interiors go it takes a backseat to No One Lincoln has definitely stepped up their game with the Venetian leathers and the suede black headliner with the most spacious moonroof that any automobile on the road today has compared to the ES 350 which I looked at black with black interior when I open the door what a surprise I was in for a white headliner a complete joke watch the kids fingers LOL its definitely an old persons car there isnt anything cool or sporty about it now the MKZ on the other hand is not only cool and luxurious but its also sporty I have the front wheel drive 350 horse twin turbo and believe me theres not much that can keep up with me on the road especially that Japanese piece of crap ES 350 so anybody looking for a luxury comfort looks and sporty go look at the MKZ oh and by the way I looked at the GS 350 also not impressive not like the MKZ Big Lou out

MKZ looks 100% more classy expensive - tail lights tail end of continental looks like the rear of a cheap truck navigator with all the white tail light glass/plastic looks cheap! I chose mkz over continental because it’s just more classy - I had been considering my choice jag xj8l will probably return to jag in 2020 If you’re going to have a continental - make it special, build it unique - suicide doors come to mind - everyone loves the suicide doors on a classy sedan! Something to think about!

2017 Lincoln MKZ Reserve AWD Review
says:
The ride is quiet and composed but when you hit the gas on the twin turbo 400 HP V6, seance the torque kick in and get that grin of satisfaction and enjoyment from the power. The ability to move quickly is but one part of that feeling the other is seeing the faces of the faces of those drivers in the sports cars you just blew away.The handling is Ford anemic but still an improvement over the previous versions of this car, Lincoln says its all about the luxury experience and that they are interested in chasing the Germans in the area of sports car handling. I say if you are not super hung up on feedback the likes of Audi, BMW or even Cadillac and you are OK with good enough, this car will suit your power/torque needs just fine. This car really lives on the highway not the racetrack and that is the reason i was interested in it and eventually bought it.

2017 Lincoln MKZ Review
says:
I test drove many vehicles. When it came down to it I liked the interior, ride and comfort better in the MKZ. For $55k it is hard to find a creamy smooth 400HP engine. With a few key features i.e. 400HP V6, AWD & driver’s package, other midsized luxury vehicles felt inferior. As if the Lincoln had a higher-end quality interior and better total package. The seats are very well thought out & comfortable. Leather & padded surfaces feel soft and supple. It’s as if the Lincoln brand is trying harder since they have to thwart off the sport of American brand bashing that is constantly read in publications such as Consumer Reports. Furthermore the Drivers Package adds AWD w/dynamic torque vectoring which intelligently applies power to the rear wheels when driving aggressively. With the package torque steer under normal driving is gone along with much of the understeer typically associated with FWD and some AWD vehicles. In my opinion road isolation & ride are better in the Lincoln than say a Caddy, Mercedes or BMW. Cornering Gs is extremely ample with the all-weather 19” tires standard with the driver’s package. I would not opt for the summer only tires which hurt the ride. So if there is some impact from having AWD vs RWD it will most likely only be noticed at the track or with very aggressive drivers. Yes when you apply the full 400HP most torque goes to the rear but even the 30-40% going to the front can cause a slight pull. It’s nice they provide a per wheel instantaneous power read out so you know the rear wheels do their share intelligently (when you stomp on the accelerator). That said 99.999999% of the audience buying these vehicles today are not going to the race track and won’t notice the cons and most likely will appreciate the pros to this AWD setup. Drivers looking for a stable good grip on a variety of road conditions along with easy control and a sure footed steering feel will appreciate the Lincoln because it delivers. The MKZ is rock solid on the highway in cross winds on washboard pavement, etc. It doesn’t wobble across highway crowns because it’s a high performance sedan. That’s what the average Joe wants. The AWD with torque vectoring does its job and keeps torque steer under control and steering feel is precise; easy to thread the car through a needle. It is snow worthy to boot. BTW, I am not an ignorant just looking to be the expert and to hear myself speak. I know the difference between the Lincoln and a true sport sedan and opted for the Lincoln. My other vehicles are; a Corvette, Pontiac G8 GT (RWD 6 liter), F150 and Road Glide. The only cons besides the Lincoln name: scant rear head room, smaller rear seat than some, and weight distribution with AWD (not 50-50% front and rear like a RWD sedan). One more comment. Consumer Reports issue with the push button gear selector is really a joke. Anyone that is off the baby bottle will not mind the change. I actually think it makes a lot of sense to free up the console. Hope other brands do the same. A common solution amongst brands through committee would be best.
