The 2010 Lincoln MKZ comes fully equipped for its $35,000 base price. Car and Driver asserts "for the money, it offers an impressive list of standard equipment."
The 2010 MKZ sports standard SYNC. This "hands-free communication and entertainment system integrates mobile phones and media players using Bluetooth and USB technology," according to Cars.com. "If there's one thing Ford products show mastery in, it's the electronic gadgetry," Jalopnik observes, because of SYNC, "Sirius TravelLink, aux inputs, MP3 integration, hands-free phone operation, heated and cooled front seats and other various goodies."
An AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with Sirius Satellite Radio is also standard on the MKZ, along with 17-inch wheels; leather upholstery; and heated and ventilated power front seats. Edmunds adds "driver-side memory" and "an auxiliary audio jack" to that list of standard equipment. The standard "leather seating comes in everything from a sedate black to a snazzy white-on-black contrasting mix which looks extremely nice," Jalopnik observes.
MKZ options include a voice-activated navigation system; Sirius Travel Link, which offers on-the-fly data, such as traffic info, weather, movie times, and sports scores; ambient lighting; adaptive headlamps; THX-certified surround sound ("Kudos to the body-vibrating THX II audio system!" AutoWeek declares); remote start; and a moonroof. For 2010, an Executive Appearance Package gets its own paint colors and special leather-trimmed seats, walnut trim, and thicker floor mats.
