Lincoln Gets Back to Hot Rod Roots with MKZ Black Label

Underneath all the luxury trappings, Lincoln automobiles also offer their owners very powerful engines. This fact sometimes gets lost in Lincoln’s image as a stately large sedan for the affluent, but the 2017 Lincoln MKZ Black Label provides a powerful reminder of the performance a Lincoln can deliver.

2017 Lincoln MKZ Black Label

There was a time when Lincolns were highly prized for their powerful engines. The 1955 song “Hot Rod Lincoln” celebrates that image, describing a race won by a Ford Model A equipped with a Lincoln-Zephyr V-12 engine.

Now available at Bloomington Lincoln and Lincoln dealerships around the U.S., the new Lincoln MKZ Black Label recaptures that spirit, offering perhaps the fastest-accelerating Lincoln in history in a sexy package that Lincoln enthusiasts will love.

The new Lincoln MKZ Black Label is equipped with a 3.0-liter V-6 that produces 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The vehicle can accelerate from zero to 60 in an impressive 4.8 seconds.

The Black Label version of the MKZ—the most upscale version available—is an amazingly handsome vehicle that projects confidence and cool. The new MKZ shares aesthetic features with the new Continental and an upcoming Lincoln SUV. The new look for Lincoln is helping the automaker shed its image as a manufacturer of staid sedans.

Inside the cabin, new owners will be delighted by premium leather upholstery, attractive stitching, and a gorgeous wood trim. Seats are posh and comfortable, and the cabin offers ample leg and headroom.

As can be expected, the top-level trim of the MKZ has all the technological bells and whistles. The vehicle’s infotainment system is powered by Sync3—Ford’s latest touchscreen interface—and provides a user-friendly experience that makes controlling vehicle functions easy.

The MKZ Black Label’s Revel Ultima stereo provides an awesome experience for music lovers with its 20 speakers. Other tech features such as controlled dampers, electronic power steering assistance, engine and transmission programming, and noise control features also work together to make driving the MKZ a truly enjoyable experience.

The new MKZ is also a very safe vehicle, having earned high marks for its build and electronic safety measures from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the independent Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.

When consumers purchase a Black Label vehicle, they also gain access to some great member service features from Lincoln, including pickup and delivery for maintenance services, free car washes, and special dining privileges at select restaurants.
