Thoughts: 2013 Lincoln MKZ

*Update (3/30/12): The 2013 MKZ will come equipped with a sliding glass roof. Lincoln chose this design to differentiate the MKZ from the Ford Fusion. I think this a great feature that many MKZ buyers will enjoy. I'm really excited about this vehicle!

(1/11/12) I have to say that the 2013 Lincoln MKZ concept car is HOT!!! This is the design language that I expect from Ford's  luxury brand. The MKZ concept looks like a true luxury vehicle. After seeing the MKZ concept, I wished Lincoln would have held off on the changes to the MKS and MKT. But like everyone else has been saying, it's still front-wheel drive. While the MKZ concept looks vastly different from the Fusion concept will that change in design make someone buy an MKZ or a Fusion? I'm quite not sure. I really like the Fusion concept and think it looks great but I also like the MKZ concept. Still when it comes down to money I don't think I would shell out extra for the MKZ.

The Lincoln brand still has a long way to go! By looking at the MKZ concept they are going in the right design direction but there's a lot still missing. I don't know what they're doing over their at Lincoln but there needs to be a rear-wheel drive vehicle in their lineup. If Hyundai made the effort to ave rear-wheel drive vehicles in their lineup, Lincoln needs to make that same effort. I personally think more changes need to be made at Lincoln.

What are your thoughts on the Lincoln MKZ concept?
