Reviews Summary

Without a talented chef, the best ingredients from around the world can produce a mediocre meal. Thus, the redesigned 2016 Lincoln MKX comes across as half-baked, a stylish and remarkably well-equipped vehicle that is good rather than great. To better compete in an increasingly crowded segment, this Lincoln requires additional refinement and attention to detail.

Reviews Summary

It’s not easy carving away loyalists from the German/Japanese luxury sedan segment, but a good way to start is with a 400-hp engine and a long list of standards that would cost you more from the competition. The Lincoln MKZ has been with us just 10 years, but has struggled due to its foundational and conceptual relation to the Ford Fusion and, according to Ford, resistance to the split-wing grille that has dominated the Lincoln brand in recent years. But with sales successes coming from the MKX and the Navigator, Lincoln has redesigned the MKZ with a new direction in mind, hoping it can continue the upward swing and finally cement itself as a luxury stalwart. To that end, Lincoln has given the MKZ a new front end, an exclusive new 3.0-liter V6 with class-leading power, and the new Sync 3 infotainment system, a big upgrade over the outgoing version.
