The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
A riper, more mature Chrysler 300 renews our faith in restrained American styling--and in big V-8, rear-drive fun. The 2011 Lincoln MKZ has a foot in both luxury worlds, with buttery leather and wood for traditionalists, and hybrid power with flower petals for the high-minded greens.
