I finally see a few dealer videos showing 2018 MKZs. One that caught my eye shows it in the new Blue Diamond Metallic color. Gorgeous and if I was in the market for an '18 that would be my color choice.

Just go on YouTube and search "2018 Lincoln MKZ" and a variety of dealer-posted videos will come up. The blue one I saw was at a dealership called " West Point".

Nice. Looks good. So it’s a little lighter in color than the 2017 blue?

Yes it's a lighter shade of blue. Looks great to me!
Now there's a dealer in GA who put up several videos of '18s with the new package (I think it's called the "Magnetic Package") which puts the Driver's Package wheels and grille on the car. Kind of interesting to see the Driver's Package appearance on different color cars.
Now that the '18s are on dealer lots, I wonder when 2018 Build-and-Price will be up on Lincoln's website?

I would love to see the 18 build & price up already, I keep checking for it. 

 

I'd love to get a Rhapsody Blue BL ordered, just like below. 

Or maybe a well equipped Reserve with Drivers Package, since I like those wheels better.

Great pics fusionff! Both of those blues look great!
For 2018 you can get the wheels and dark-painted grille of the Driver's Package by ordering the "MKZ Magnetic Package" on Premiere, Select and Reserve trims. Adds a little flexibility to the packaging.

I saw the Diamond Blue at my dealership on October 9th. It caught my eye as I was entering the lot to have the oil changed on my 16 MKX. Since it was outside, it looked to be a lighter Blue than the above inside photo. It was interesting because my Lincoln only dealer seems to order tons of Black, White, Silver and Dark Gray cars for stock. Out of 23 Continental on the lot, only one was another color...Ruby Red.

This is a better picture of the Blue Diamond Z. 

(Rhapsody Blue on bottom to show the difference)

I hope to see a Blue Diamond on the road someday. I like it!

Yes, with the sun shining on it, that is what I saw and like the Diamond Blue!

Seems strange that with several 2018 MKZ's now on dealer lots that on the Lincoln site, Build and Price has not been updated to the 2018 model.

It's about time, the 2018 MKZ Build & Price is now up!

 

2018 Continental is not.

It's up, but it's not correct at this point. I tried to build a Select 3.0T/AWD and couldn't. I was able to build a Reserve 3.0T/AWD but the price came out less than my 2017 Select so that can't be right either. I'm sure they'll get the bugs worked out soon.

Not surprised.  Lincoln.com has been a mess since I can remember.
