Lincoln plans to develop a luxury coupe similar to the MKKZ

In the last few years, Lincoln is actually a brand that has received a lot of bad treatment for being, according to some, too similar to products developed by Ford in terms of design. No matter what is the reason, critics have been rather vocal and have offered a lot of solutions in terms of future strategies and development. The thing is that there is no way of knowing for sure weather they were heading somewhere or not. The ones to blame are actually the people from Premier Auto group directors who through acquiring European prestige brands would yield great benefits. Carmakers like Volvo, Jaguar, Range Rover and Aston Martin were the ones that received all resources and in the meantime, Lincoln was left with almost nothing. Ford is now very careful and offered all its attention, determination and resources, just to make sure the brand will reach the surface again. Actually, the new MKZ mid-size luxury sedan is one of the first models to distance itself from any of the Ford siblings and has a great design in comparison to the competition. For now, the specialists only have to offer a sedan version and are wondering about the demand for a MKZ coupe. They question about the form it would take and about its place on the market. In the photo gallery you can see several images of an option. The front end, as you can see has been raised and it comes with a frontal grill and wider headlights. To emphasize the coupe stance, the engineers have shortened the mid-section and this is why it will not look like a yacht. The new model will come with a 2.0-liter GTDI I-4 EcoBoost unit, with a 3.7-liter TI-VCT V6, but also with a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine in terms of options. All will send the output to the wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. This is all we have on the future model. Source: carsoops
