Engage and enjoy. The evolution of available adaptive cruise control61 with stop-and-go capability offers an enjoyable and confident drive. When the MKZ is in adaptive cruise mode, a radar scans the road ahead and detects slower traffic ahead. The MKZ can then automatically brake and accelerate to keep you at your set speed or follow at a preset distance with the pace of traffic when speeds are below your set speed. With the addition of stop-and-go, the feature can bring your vehicle to a complete stop in stopped traffic and restart it as traffic begins to move.
Outer beauty. Inner strength. The Lincoln Motor Company has gone to extraordinary lengths to give the exterior of the 2018 MKZ an exceptional level of grace and elegance. An equal amount of effort has been applied to develop and harness the capabilities of an available Twin-Turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine. This engine delivers 400 horsepower and 400 lb.- ft. of torque, making the 2018 Lincoln MKZ one of the most powerful and compelling Lincoln vehicles to ever take to the road.
The similarities are surprising. The shared features between the MKZ Hybrid and its gas counterpart go well beyond the exterior. Designers and engineers worked hand in hand to deliver a hybrid powertrain that has an EPA-estimated 41 miles to the gallon in the city, while keeping almost every surface, button, knob and interior finish exactly the same. Plus, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is the only hybrid in its class with the same starting price as its gas-powered counterpart.
The Lincoln MKZ offers all-wheel drive (AWD) with both the Turbocharged 2.0L I-4 and Twin-Turbocharged 3.0L V6 engines. AWD delivers torque to the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction, typically before wheel slip can even occur. Plus, when AWD is added to the 3.0L engine, it produces 400 horsepower.

Everything in its place. Technology is an ever-present and often intrusive element in our lives. Recognizing this, our designers took a driver-focused approach when creating the central control panel in the 2018 Lincoln MKZ. This exploration resulted in the intuitive placement of mechanical knobs and buttons as well as the repositioning of media ports and electrical outlets for seamless use. By leaving technology overload in the rearview mirror, the 2018 Lincoln MKZ brings the thrill of the drive to the forefront.
For the road ahead. Available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection is our next generation of driver-assist technology. This feature uses radar and camera technology to scan the roadway ahead and, if another vehicle or pedestrian is detected, provides a warning to the driver. If the driver does not respond in time, the system can automatically pre-charge to provide full responsiveness when the driver does brake and can even apply the brakes if the driver takes no action.
The available Lane-Keeping System uses a camera mounted behind the windshield’s rearview mirror to monitor road lane markings and detect unintentional drifting toward the outside of a lane. If the rearview camera detects an impending drift, the system will use the steering system and the instrument cluster display to alert and/or aid you to stay in your lane.
