If there's one thing Ford products show mastery in, it's the electronic gadgetry

...an impressive list of standard equipment
Car and Driver



The 2011 Lincoln MKZ comes fully equipped, whether the gas-only or the Hybrid option is chosen--though the base price remains the same, at just under $36,000.

Standard features on the V-6 MKZ include Bluetooth and the linked-in SYNC system, which uses voice-activated commands to control phones and audio systems. The MKZ also sports a touchscreen LCD for navigation and other functions. The audio system in the MKZ is an AM/FM/CD/MP3 unit with Sirius Satellite Radio and a few months of free service. The MKZ also includes standard leather upholstery; heated and ventilated power front seats; and 17-inch wheels.

On the options list for the six-cylinder Lincoln are Sirius Travel Link, which streams real-time data for traffic, weather, even sports scores to the car; there's also an available voice-activated navigation system; ambient lighting; adaptive headlamps; remote start; THX-certified surround sound; and a moonroof.

On the MKZ Hybrid, all the same features are standard, along with the Hybrid's unique Smart Gauge displays.

A little more time spent with Ford's SYNC system before driving, will pay out benefits to any driver. SYNC uses Bluetooth and voice commands to relieve the driver from having to look at buttons to change radio stations, set up destinations, or take calls. Last year Ford fitted the system with a new voice-command structure and a much bigger vocabulary, which makes the system eminently more usable. 

The MKZ doesn't yet have Ford's trick MyLincoln Touch system, which adds voice control to many more functions, but we expect it's coming when the sedan is replaced in the 2013 model year.

 

Conclusion

SYNC, a good navigation system and THX audio make the 2011 Lincoln MKZ a standout in the entry-luxury niche.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
