Lincoln is the luxury/premium division of Ford, making more upscale versions based on Ford model platforms. There is also plenty of crossover between the two brands when it comes to technology; Lincoln cars feature versions of Sync and MyLincoln Touch.
The MKZ sedan is also available as the MKZ Hybrid for those looking for greater fuel efficiency. Both the MKZ and the MKZ Hybrid were redesigned alongside the Ford Fusion on which they are based om 2013. There are two available engines, one a 240-hp turbocharged four-cylinder that focuses on efficiency, or a 300-hp V-6 which is geared more towards performance. There are plenty of standard features to go around in the MKZ, including Sync and MyLincoln Touch, leather upholstery, and a 10.1-inch LCD instrument cluster.
The MKZ Hybrid combines efficiency and luxury, with a 141-hp four-cylinder under the hood that works with a 47-hp electric motor.
The flagship MKS is unchanged for 2015. Under the hood is a 300-hp V-6 that returns pretty good fuel economy (19/28 mpg city/highway) for a car of this size.
Lincoln also offers a quartet of crossovers and SUVs for those who are looking for more utility from their vehicle, starting with the brand-new MKC.
The MKC is a compact crossover that features one of two EcoBoost four-cylinder engines under the hood, modern exterior styling, and gobs of technology in the cabin. It features the latest version of MyLincoln Touch which removes some of the touch capacitive controls of the previous system for physical knobs, a step back that is actually a big step forward in terms of usability.
The five-seat MKX is a close relative of the Ford Edge, and the midsize crossover seats five passengers across two rows. For more seating, you’ll have to look to the MKT which seats six- or seven-passengers across three-rows of seats.
Finishing things up is the full-size Navigator SUV, which comes in a long-wheelbase version as well (Navigator L). The Navigator and its powerful V-8 also comes with plenty of convenience features like a power liftgate, power-folding third row, heated and cooled front seats, and a navigation system all as standard equipment.
