Quiet Lux­ury: New 2017 Lin­coln MKZ

In­tu­itive tech­nol­ogy, ef­fort­less per­for­mance and dis­tinc­tive de­sign

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

DUBAI: Dis­cover your new fa­vorite space. The new 2017 Lin­coln MKZ com­bines in­tu­itive tech­nol­ogy, ef­fort­less per­for­mance and dis­tinc­tive de­sign to de­liver an en­hanced driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence Lin­coln calls quiet lux­ury.

Lin­coln this week re­vealed the newly de­signed MKZ, fo­cus­ing on ar­eas most de­sired by to­day’s lux­ury mid­size sedan cus­tomer - qual­ity, per­for­mance and style. The new model is ex­pected to come to Lin­coln show­rooms in the Mid­dle East late next year.

“Our cus­tomers are look­ing for three at­tributes in a lux­ury mid­size sedan - tech­nolo­gies that ease their ev­ery­day ex­pe­ri­ence, a beau­ti­ful de­sign that is crafted with at­ten­tion to de­tail, and a ve­hi­cle with im­pres­sive power that makes it a plea­sure to drive,” said Ku­mar Gal­ho­tra, pres­i­dent of Lin­coln. “The new Lin­coln MKZ el­e­vates all of th­ese at­tributes - and many more - to cre­ate a com­pelling en­try in this large and highly com­pet­i­tive por­tion of the lux­ury mar­ket.”

The new Lin­coln MKZ is de­signed to ap­peal to those who are look­ing for some­thing dif­fer­ent in the lux­ury mar­ket. From the place­ment of tech­nol­ogy fea­tures such as the push-but­ton gear shift to reimag­ined in­te­rior spa­ces in­clud­ing the float­ing cen­tre con­sole, driv­ers can rel­ish in dis­cov­er­ing an un­ex­pected ex­pe­ri­ence based on in­tel­li­gent func­tion and beau­ti­ful form that of­fers, above all, an en­joy­able drive.

The Lin­coln Ex­pe­ri­ence is brought to life through the avail­able Lin­coln-ex­clu­sive 3.0-litre GTDI V6 en­gine, as well as in­tan­gi­ble el­e­ments like the quiet cabin pro­vided by the Ac­tive Noise Con­trol sys­tem.

Fea­tures that make the new Lin­coln MKZ a haven of re­fined com­fort in­clude cu­rated spa­ces for stor­age, fully re­tractable panoramic glass roof, and con­cert-qual­ity Revel au­dio with spe­cially de­signed doors for op­ti­mal po­si­tion­ing of the speak­ers.

In­tu­itive tech­nol­ogy

The new Lin­coln MKZ is de­signed to make the drive ride eas­ier and more en­joy­able. Avail­able adap­tive cruise con­trol with stop-and-go func­tion­al­ity can au­to­mat­i­cally slow the car, re­sum­ing higher speeds when traf­fic clears. The sys­tem ac­ti­vates the brakes au­to­mat­i­cally to bring the car to a com­plete stop if the driver fails to ap­ply brakes in time.

An auto hold fea­ture keeps the car at a com­plete stop with­out the driver hav­ing to press and hold the brake pedal - making bumper-to-bumper driv­ing more re­lax­ing for MKZ own­ers.

Avail­able en­hanced park as­sist uses ul­tra­sonic sen­sors to help Lin­coln MKZ seam­lessly steer it­self into a par­al­lel or per­pen­dic­u­lar park­ing spot. The car can as­sist with park-out as needed.

Pre-Col­li­sion As­sist with Pedes­trian De­tec­tion is an avail­able tech­nol­ogy that can help avoid some frontal crashes1, or lessen the sever­ity of such events.

Lin­coln-ex­clu­sive en­gine pro­vides

ef­fort­less per­for­mance

An all-new, Lin­coln-ex­clu­sive 3.0-litre GTDI V6 leads avail­able en­gine choices for the new Lin­coln MKZ. When paired with an in­tel­li­gent all-wheel-drive sys­tem, the twin-tur­bocharged en­gine pro­duces 406 PS and 542 Nm of torque2,3 for ef­fort­less per­for­mance and re­fine­ment.

Dy­namic Torque Vec­tor­ing4, part of an avail­able Driver’s Pack­age for MKZ with the 3.0-litre en­gine, en­hances cor­ner­ing agility with­out com­pro­mis­ing ride com­fort, help­ing driv­ers enjoy a smooth, seam­less ex­pe­ri­ence.

The new Lin­coln MKZ pro­vides a 2.0-litre GTDI, 248-PS2 four-cylin­der en­gine with front-wheel drive.

Avail­able Lin­coln Drive Con­trol al­lows driv­ers to ad­just among three drive ride modes - com­fort, nor­mal and sport. The sys­tem in­cludes con­tin­u­ously con­trolled damp­ing, and elec­tric power-as­sisted steer­ing to pro­vide com­fort­able, con­fi­dent han­dling.

The Driver’s Pack­age for Lin­coln MKZ with 3.0litre V6 also in­cludes 19-inch wheels, Ebony-painted calipers, light Mag­netic-painted grille, Ebony in­te­rior with car­bon fi­bre ap­pliquÈs, cus­tomis­able mul­ti­con­tour seats and alu­minium pedal cov­ers. In ad­di­tion, the pack­age fea­tures re­tuned con­tin­u­ously con­trolled damp­ing and sus­pen­sion for en­hanced driv­ing dy­nam­ics.

Dis­tinc­tive de­sign

The new face of Lin­coln is high­lighted by avail­able adap­tive LED head­lamps that help de­liver cleaner, clearer light­ing for driv­ers, com­ple­mented by the all-new one-piece Lin­coln sig­na­ture grille.

In­side, en­gi­neers paid par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to the sound and feel of new switches and di­als that re­place slider ad­just­ments for eas­ier con­trol of ven­ti­la­tion and au­dio func­tions for new Lin­coln MKZ cus­tomers. Com­monly used but­tons and USB ports are now even eas­ier to ac­cess.

Lin­coln MKZ’s avail­able fully re­tractable panoramic glass roof of­fers the largest open-air roof among sedans.

“The in­tro­duc­tion of the new MKZ will help us com­pete in the sec­ond largest seg­ment in the Mid­dle East lux­ury in­dus­try; the mid-size lux­ury sedan seg­ment. Th­ese are ex­cit­ing times for Lin­coln in the re­gion, as our sales in­crease of 17 per­cent YTD clearly show,” said Alex Scha­ef­fer, head of Lin­coln Mid­dle East,” un­veil­ing our Lin­coln Con­ti­nen­tal at the re­cent Dubai In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show to huge crit­i­cal ac­claim adds to our grow­ing port­fo­lio of com­pelling prod­ucts.”
