Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The three updated mid-size sedans of Ford shown last year at the LA Auto Show is completed by the latest Lincoln MKZ which has received a facelift, new interior, and more standard elements for 2010 just like its Ford Fusion and Mercury Mila brothers. The price for the midsize sedan has been made available by Ford with the basic FWD version fetching a $34,965 tag inclusive of destination and delivery fees.

The AWD version comes with a $36,885 base price. The optional Sport Appearance Package, which comes with rigid springs and bigger stabilizers, 18 inch "Euroflange" polished rims, darkened grill and headlights and an interior with contrast piping, cost an additional $1,295.Available also on the car are segment-exclusive elements consisting of blind sport monitoring system and cross traffic reverse sensors.

The featured blind spot system employs two multiple-beam radar modules mounted on the fenders at the rear.The driver is warned when the car enters the defined blind-spot zone via indicator lights fitted into both the rear-view mirrors.

The blind-spot zone extends from the side mirror to 10 feet behind and 10 feet away car. The featured cross traffic employs the same radar sensors to warn the driver of approaching vehicles while the car is in reverse, such as backing out of a or parking spot, driveway or garage.

The system tracks up to a range of 65 feet on either side of the car and provides both audible and visual warnings. Besides these amazing technologies, the MKZ also carries over Ford's SYNC interface technology, voice-activated satellite navigation, keyless access and adjustable HID headlights. Included in the styling revisions are a new-split wing grill and thinner wraparound headlights for broader and more sportive appearance.

At the back section the car comes with a new trunk cover with broader LED taillights highlighting its width. In the interior, the compartment is embellished with genuine aluminum and wood trim contingent on the package, and also comes with a brand-new instrument panel, surround lighting, and Bridge of Weir leather. The car is propelled by the 3.5-liter V6 Duratec unit that produces 263hp and 249lb-ft of torque.

For maximum potency and smooth operation at high engine speeds, the engine utilizes a compact, lightweight dual-overhead cam valvetrain. For a smooth idle and a wider torque curve, the engine integrates intake variable cam timing to optimize valve timing.

Standard in the new saloon is the 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with either FWD or the optional AWD. Consequently, the updated powertrain is equipped with faster acceleration of 7.1 seconds from standstill to 60mph, an improvement of 0.6 seconds from the current version. The car will be built in the company's Hermosillo factory in Mexico and will be hitting showrooms very soon.
