* Eye-catching design; high fuel economy from available hybrid model; many standard features. Source: Edmunds * The 2014 Lincoln MKZ is simply breathtaking from front to back. Its classic split-wing grille and beautiful flowing curves, inspired by a waterfall, are merely an indication of its unique inner workings. If fewer fill-ups appeals to you, choose the standard 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 turbocharged direct-injection engine. It offers up to 33 mpg hwy with 240 hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque - the performance you would expect from a 6-cylinder (FWD: 22 mpg city/33 hwy. - AWD: 22 mpg city/31 hwy). For more of a rush, opt for the 3.7L Ti-VCT 24-valve aluminum V6. It increases output to 300 hp and 277 lb.-ft. of torque, and still offers impressive economy, thanks in part to shutters in the front grille that automatically close at speed to help you slip through the air with less resistance (FWD: 19 mpg city and 28 hwy. - AWD: 18 mpg city and 26 hwy). The Lincoln MKZ also provides a Hybrid option, which gets 38 mpg city and 37 hwy. The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid uses a state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery for more power and less weight. In electric mode, it can run up to 62 mph. The 2.0L Atkinson-cycle I-4 engine and electric traction motor recharge the battery while you drive. New for 2014, Lincoln has added daytime running lights to many of the optional packages. The open spaciousness of Lincoln MKZ is a result of what is not there. For instance: no traditional shifter. Lincoln eliminated the intrusive knob to create a thin center console that flows gracefully through the cabin. Step back and soak in the stunning, floating dual-arch design, inspired by the shape of a calla lily. Lift your eyes to the instrument panel, and you will recognize the rhythmic symmetry of a manta ray. Lincoln eschewed conventional design in interior lighting as well. Illuminated front-door sill plates welcome you. Inside, rear passengers 'swipe' dots of light on the ceiling to activate their reading lamps. Even the door locks are subtle, emitting a red LED glow when locked. Source: The Manufacturer Summary

The 2014 Lincoln MKZ makes a statement with an attractive, luxurious package that offers much to like in the competitive mid-level luxury segment.
The MKZ comes standard as a front-wheel-drive 4-door sedan in several available package trims. Base cars are powered by a 2.0L Ecoboost 4-cylinder. The turbocharged engine features direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) and produces 240 horsepower and 270 ft-lb of torque. Available is a 3.7L V6, also with Ti-VCT, which develops an impressive 300 horsepower and 277 ft-lb of torque. A 6-speed automatic with SelectShift paddled shifters is standard. Lincoln's "intelligent" all-wheel drive System is optional with either engine and provides enhanced handling and control by redirecting power to the appropriate wheel for best traction in a variety of conditions. A 2.0L Atkinson-cycle hybrid-electric powertrain comes on the front-wheel-drive MKZ Hybrid, offering a total of 188 horsepower and returning an EPA-estimate 47 mpg in the city and 44 mpg on the highway.
Four equipment groups are offered on the MKZ: Premiere, Select, Reserve and Preferred. Standard features in Premiere include heated leather seating with front row 10-way power adjustability and driver memory, wood trim throughout, SYNC with MyLincoln Touch infotainment system on an 8-inch LCD touch-screen center stack, and an 11-speaker premium CD/MP3 sound system. Moving up to the Select trim adds a wood steering wheel, rearview camera and parking sensors, as well as HD Radio technology. The Reserve trim gets a navigation system with voice recognition, blind spot information system with a cross-traffic alert and a power trunk lid with soft close. Finally, the top-of-the-line Preferred trim comes with 19-inch polished aluminum wheels, heated steering wheel and rear seats and THX II Premium Audio.
Popular standalone options on the MKZ include two different moonroofs. The 'single panel' roof is a traditional remote glass sunroof, while the dual panel moonroof features an opening panel above the seats, with a fixed pane in the ceiling above the rear seats, which includes a power rear sunshade.
Standard safety features on the MKZ include a forward and reverse sensing system, AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control, an SOS Post-Crash Alert System, a bevy of airbags and traction control.
The Lincoln MKZ was totally redesigned last year, leaving relatively little to change for 2014. The only differences will be a few new paint options for this year.
