The 2014 Lincoln MKZ is simply breathtaking from front to back. Its classic split-wing grille and beautiful flowing curves| inspired by a waterfall| are merely an indication of its unique inner workings. If fewer fill-ups appeals to you| choose the standard 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 turbocharged direct-injection engine. It offers up to 33 mpg hwy with 240 hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque - the performance you would expect from a 6-cylinder (FWD: 22 mpg city/33 hwy. - AWD: 22 mpg city/31 hwy). For more of a rush| opt for the 3.7L Ti-VCT 24-valve aluminum V6. It increases output to 300 hp and 277 lb.-ft. of torque| and still offers impressive economy| thanks in part to shutters in the front grille that automatically close at speed to help you slip through the air with less resistance (FWD: 19 mpg city and 28 hwy. - AWD: 18 mpg city and 26 hwy). The Lincoln MKZ also provides a Hybrid option| which gets 45 mpg city and 45 hwy. The 2014 MKZ Hybrid uses a state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery for more power and less weight. In electric mode| it can run up to 62 mph. The 2.0L Atkinson-cycle I-4 engine and electric traction motor recharge the battery while you drive. New for 2014| Lincoln has added daytime running lights to many of the optional packages. The open spaciousness of Lincoln MKZ is a result of what is not there. For instance: no traditional shifter. Lincoln eliminated the intrusive knob to create a thin center console that flows gracefully through the cabin. Step back and soak in the stunning| floating dual-arch design| inspired by the shape of a calla lily. Lift your eyes to the instrument panel| and you will recognize the rhythmic symmetry of a manta ray. Lincoln eschewed conventional design in interior lighting as well. Illuminated front-door sill plates welcome you. Inside| rear passengers 'swipe' dots of light on the ceiling to activate their reading lamps. Even the door locks are subtle| emitting a red LED glow when locked.
