The 2019 Lincoln MKZ has a quiet, dignified disposition, but when you take it out on the road, it truly shines through as the luxury vehicle it has. As a mid-size luxury sedan, there are high expectations placed on the MKZ in 2019, and Lincoln made sure that the MKZ lived up to every one of those standards. It boasts a powertrain that can kick things up to 400 horsepower handily and without breaking a sweat on the way to tea. This is luxury and civility all the way around, in car form.
What’s New for 2019?
Standard features will be more available throughout the 2019 lineup - base, Reserve I, and Reserve II - while the V6 engine disappears as standard on all except the Reserve II. Safety features like automatic emergency braking that were once only found on the Black Label trim - defunct in 2019 - can now be purchased in an optional package with an trim, and that's convenient for folks who place a premium on safety.
2019 Lincoln MKZ Trims and Options
The base model 2019 Lincoln MKZ comes with an already impressive list of features that will appease even the pickiest of luxury car drivers. You get a 10.1" digital gauge cluster and a host of other tech goodies that get you in touch with the connected world, as well as interior delights like automatic climate control and 10-way adjustable heated front seats, for those cold days when it's chilly. Additional trims have much to offer in the way of advanced features.
- Hybrid with 2.0L engine features an impressive 245 horsepower 2.0L engine, but the fun isn't limited to this
- A twin-turbocharged 3.0L engine is capable of 400 horsepower and one of the most thrilling driving experiences on the road
- The Reserve and Reserve II sport real leather seating inside and increase the luxury handily
- Reserve II features impressive wood and metal trim on the interior, a welcome addition
- Available as a hybrid but only combined horsepower on that for 188, so if you need speed and performance, go with the base model and 3.0L engine
The exterior of the 2019 Lincoln MKZ has been heartily cheered by luxury car enthusiasts, but to get its impressive value and relatively lower price tag, something had to give, and that something was the interior. Granted, few people would consider an 8" color touchscreen with all modern apps and entertainment, adjustable driver's seats, heated seats, and 11-speaker audio system to be all that "shabby" on the interior, but if you want the leather interior of the luxury car, you have to upgrade to the Reserve I or II, and that's something that folks who have their eye on the base model might not be too pleased about.
The exterior more than makes up for the interior, though, with big, bold 18" wheels and a sloping roof that truly looks as distinguished as you'd expect of a vehicle of this class. It truly looks like a luxury car, and for folks that value appearances, the exterior alone makes it one of the finest looking cars of 2019.
Driving the MKZ
The twin-turbocharged engine makes for an exciting ride in the 2019 Lincoln MKZ. Performance is also enhanced by Lincoln Co-Pilot360, a driver assisted tech system that helps keep you in the right lane and cope with pesky stop and go driving in the city thanks to its adaptive cruise control with stop and go. This system alone makes for a thrilling drive out there on the road, a silky smooth burst of power that even some high-end sports cars would be envious of. Whenever you have 400 horsepower under the hood, you're going to find that driving suddenly becomes just a touch more fun.
Fuel economy is a huge deal these days, and Lincoln addressed that. The hybrid model can help with that, and that's certainly something to be pleased about. You get combined MPG of between 23 and 24 MPG, a number that will conform to most modern standards and vehicles of this size. Thanks to superior styling, a handsome sloping roof, interior materials that can be upgraded with higher trims, and a respectable fuel economy, the 2019 Lincoln MKZ is a solid choice for value among the luxury cars of the world today. It features a powerful performance-based engine with big results and gives drivers the powerful Lincoln Co-Pilot360 technology to bolster the driving experience. In general, anyone who is behind the wheel of the 2019 Lincoln MKZ is going to feel like a million bucks. It's recommended for anyone on the hunt for a solid mid-size luxury sedan with a lot of features and a smaller price tag.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Lincoln MKZ invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Lincoln MKZ MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
