2011 Lincoln MKZ Values

The entry-level sedan in the Ford's premium car brand lineup, the 2011 Lincoln MKZ continues to assert itself as an effective introduction to the pleasures of American luxury. Exterior look and even overall performance can benefit from the 2011 MKZ sedan's Sport Appearance Package. Featuring prominent 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, the Lincoln MKZ suspension is specially tuned for aggression. Every 2011 Lincoln MKZ includes standard Lincoln SYNC, power windows, reverse-sensing system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a 9-speaker, 360-watt sound system. A 14-speaker THX II 5.1 surround sound and a Sirius-guided navigation unit are optional on the 2011 Lincoln MKZ sedan.

Lincoln's entry-level sedan is still a great luxury value. With a powerful 3.5L V6 engine, LED taillights, the innovative SYNC entertainment system, 10-way power front leather seats and a strong safety-feature set, the LINCOLN MKZ is a lot of luxury for just over $35,000. The addition of an available hybrid powertrain in 2011 means the luxury value just got a lot stronger. Lincoln's first hybrid model debuts in 2011 and brings fuel efficiency and environmental consciousness to the luxury brand. The LINCOLN MKZ hybrid is estimated to achieve an impressive 41 mpg in the city, while generating 191 horsepower out of its 2.5L engine/electric motor powertrain. With a similar base price to the base LINCOLN MKZ, there's little to be sacrificed for such efficiency.
