2017 Lincoln MKZ Priced At $43,575 With 3.0L Turbo, AWD

The new 2017 Lincoln MKZ, unveiled at last year’s LA Auto Show, has been officially priced at $43,575 with all-wheel drive and the exciting new 400 horsepower 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6. That price includes destination fee.

The Lincoln MKZ’s hot new 3.0T replaces the current range-topping, normally-aspirated 3.7-liter V6, which is retiring this year. According to CarsDirect, the engine will only be available on Select, Reserve, and Black Label models, and can’t be ordered on entry-level Premier cars. When selected with all-wheel drive, it represents a $4,000 premium over the base 2.0-liter turbo engine, and a $2,335 premium over a 2016 Lincoln MKZ with the outgoing 3.7L mill.

The 3.0T can be optioned with front-wheel drive, at a cost of $2,750 over the base engine, but power will be limited in such cars to just 350 horsepower.

This 3.0-liter twin-turbo in the new Lincoln MKZ will also grace the 2017 Lincoln Continental, tying both models for the title of “most powerful Lincoln ever built.” It promises to deliver quite a lot of power for the money; CarsDirect points out that the 365 horsepower, 3.5L EcoBoost-powered Ford Taurus SHO costs nearly as much, with a base MSRP of $41,150. That car, too, comes with all-wheel drive.
