Detroit (Michigan / USA), 13. January 2012 – The Ford subsidiary Lincoln shows on the Detroit Motor Show 2012 (still up to 22. January 2012) with the MKZ a noble-made limousine on Ford-Mondeo base. The MKZ is still declared as a study, but the production model was allowed to have rough similarities with the concept car. The platform for the clake offers Ford Fusion, as the Mondeo in the US market is called.
The Ford designers have set to a clear and parorkllosis line carrying in the design of the MKZ. A strongly contoured edge on Turgriffhohe extends from the front spoiler to the rear of the Lincoln and let him look a bullyfish. In the bonnet of the sedan, a fold is insulated in the middle. The most distinctive feature of the MKZ is the typical double-flyer Kuhlerbill, which already carried the Lincoln Zephyr from 1938 on the nose. From the narrow A-soule, a panoramic glass roof is stretched to the rear, where the LED jerk lights extend over the entire vehicle width.
Inside like dear: good
The comfortable and functional interior should appeal mainly to young, sophisticated customers. The stages of the automatic transmission are loaded at the study over keys. In the center console, a 10 inch gross touchscreen is integrated, which can also be operated by voice control. Elegant wood, matt aluminum and champagne-colored leather seats make the car to the small strain yacht. Under the hood of the MKZ, Ecoboost engines from Ford are used. Hybrid variants are also conceivable. As with the Group Brother Mondeo, the drives are optionally transferred to the front or all four wheels. In the course of 2012, the Lincoln MKZ should roll to US handlers. The opportunities for a European variant, however, seem low.
