LINCOLN MKZ OFFERS DISTINCTIVE LUXURY LOOK WITH 'MIDNIGHT BLACK' PACKAGE FOR 2009
Lincoln continues setting new standards for entry-level luxury sedans by offering a new interior design treatment that smartly blends basic black wîth MKZ's sophisticated Lincoln look and richly appointed interior.
The new 'Midnight Black' MKZ special-edition package includes the following:
The Midnight Black package adds even more luxury and refinement to Lincoln MKZ's interior.
Hailed by critics for helping redefine Lincoln as a serious contender in the luxury car market, Lincoln MKZ boasts a number of best in-class interiors features and award-winning technologies that treat customers to levels of comfort and convenience at a value unheard of in the luxury §egmènt, including:
|Engine : 3.5 L., 6-cylinder|
Power: 265 hp
Torque: 250 ft-lbs
Named the ‘Best Audio (Stereo) System' by PC Magazine in their 2007 Digital Drive Awards, the Lincoln MKZ's THX II system uses the latest in patented THX technologies to bring the home theater surround sound experience to the open road. The system uses a 12-channel amplifier to deliver 600 watts of power to a total of 14 speakers, including two subwoofers, strategically placed in the cabin.
The system's processor analyzes bandwidth, peak audio levels and coverage uniformity to deliver a smooth spectral balance and wide dynamic range. Multi-channel equalization and digital signal processing match the speaker placement to the cabin acoustics to assure this level of performance.
With the push of a button, the system can be configured for three specific listening modes – Driver, Front Seats and All Seats – ensuring that all passengers enjoy optimal sound.
The system also features a fast-loading six-disc changer that reads CDs in normal audio, MP3 compressed or text formats. The AM/FM tuner is compatible wîth the Radio Data Broadcasting System (RDBS) and displays participating radio station call letters, formats and song titles.
Ford's Duratec 35 V-6 engine delivers 263 horsepower and 249 pound-feet of torque results in smooth power and a confident, comfortable ride.
The Lincoln MKZ is able to respond readily to its driver's demands, thanks to the premium six-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) A torque-based electronic throttle control works wîth the electronically controlled transmission by adjusting throttle plate movement to tailor torque to the timing of each shift. In this way, the transmission is able to deliver smooth, barely perceptible gear changes.
The Lincoln MKZ possesses an engaging, performance driving character thanks to the careful engineering and calibration on the chassis, §teering boost curve, spring rates, anti-roll bars and damping force.
The standard 17-inch tires were selected to complement the suspension tuning and for their quiet tread design. The rack-and-pinion §teering system was tuned to be in harmony wîth the suspension and tires. Útilizing the car's stiff structure, the Lincoln MKZ mounts the §teering gear to the front perimeter subframe for reduced noise and vibration. This allows the driver to better experience the car's relationship to the road via the §teering wheel, whether it's a parking maneuver or a high-speed lane change.
Lincoln MKZ offers standard front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive (AWD). The intelligent AWD system is tuned wîth an emphasis on luxury performance and confident all-weather driving. The system actively and seamlessly delivers torque to all four wheels, even before wheel slippage occurs. An active on-demand coupler delivers the precise amount of torque needed to the rear wheels. Paired wîth standard traction control, intelligent AWD can transfer torque front-to-rear and side-to-side.
Safety Brings Peace of Mind
The Lincoln MKZ features a number of highly advanced safety technologies, including standard AdvanceTrac® electronic stability control. AdvanceTrac® can predict the vehicle's intentions using a sensor to detect and measure oversteer and understeer by monitoring the vehicle's §teering wheel angle versus actual yaw. When the system senses wheel side slip – the difference between the driver's intended and the actual path – engine torque is reduced and braking is applied at individual wheels – something even the best drivers in the world can't do – to help keep the car tracking safely on its intended path.
Additional standard safety features on the Lincoln MKZ include:
The Lincoln MKZ is built at Ford's Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly Plant in Mexico.Source - Lincoln
