2016 Lincoln MKZ Order Guide / Model Year Changes


Best Answer heatherfeather , 29 May 2015 - 05:39 PM

I have had my car two months and like the MyLincoln Touch. It has never been slow to respond or anything. Maybe other manufacturers have better systems. I really have nothing to compare it to as my previous car I had ten years so it lacked that technology. Go to the full post

 Is there really a difference between these 2 Black Velvet replaces Tuxedo Black?

What is Ecoselect and what does the hazelnut line item mean, that anything black in the hazelnut interior turns to the hazelnut?  You'd think they'd be a little more clear but I guess these are for dealers, not customers.

This explains EcoSelect - basically reduced acceleration and energy dedicated to A/C/heat etc.  I think that's basically EV mode in a Prius - not too familiar with those hideous things.

Is that a typo on the "6-years" prepaid Sirius traffic link? The entertainment side of the Sirius is only a "6-month" prepaid.

My dealer said that it was 6 years for Sirius Traffic Link. I asked the same question when I purchased my 2016. I hope he's right.

I notice they didn't change to the new Sync 3 system.  Too bad.  I guess the stuff I have read about all 2016 models receiving Sync 3 was bogus.  Grrrr.  :(

Darn it :(. I thought all Lincoln's 2016 lineup would get Lincoln's version of Ford SYNC 3. So, what about the availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto?. The 2016 Hyundai Sonata will be the first car to get Android Auto  which will be available late 2015.

http://www.autoblog....a-android-auto/

 

And, all 2016 Chevrolet models will get both.

 

http://www.pcmag.com...,2484743,00.asp

 

One more question for all the 2013-2016 MKZ owners, how would describe your experience with MyLincoln Touch so far?. Is it really that bad as described by most auto publications?.

Maybe it's just me but I have no complaints about MyLincoln Touch. It is not a speed demon but works just fine for me.

 

Just to qualify my statement, I'm a retired IT Professional so maybe my expectations are more realistic than others.

I really don't have an issue with MLT.  I do however want the advantages and options available with Sync 3 and Android Auto.  :)

Steve I hear what you're saying. Technology moves so fast it can't be retrofitted. Unfortunately it is what it is. :)

If you did not have this kind of technology in your previous car it will take time to learn how to use all the different windows. I just sat in the car while not driving , and went through the touch screens and what they did , after awhile it is like anything else the more you use it the easier it gets.   Jim

What about additional knobs and notched buttons/sliders to make the instrument panel more like the MKC? I thought that was supposed to happen.

 

Honestly, I'm feeling really deflated about holding off on purchasing a MKZ. They dropped a black color to add a black color that looks the same to me. Everything else seems practically the same as the 2013 iteration. After saving my money for years and telling myself that MKZ is the only car for me, I find myself looking at other cars because MKZ is lacking any big changes.

Thrakkkk if you like the car enough to purchase it now, do it. It's only four years with this design. Who knows, when they do make changes you may not like it. :)

 

Many other brands do not make much of a change model year to model year. BMW, Mercedes Benz, Lexus, Accura and the list goes on. If you don't own one of them you have no idea what model year it is. My Lincoln LS was also in that category.

 

Even though there are "under the cover" changes and features, I like the idea that my 2014 looks the same as the 2013 AND 2016 model. I like seeing other MKZs like mine on the road.

 

PS. A black car is a black car is a black car.............. :doh:

I traded my 13 MKZh for a 15 3.7....One reason was that there were no major changes.. It is a great looking car.. They made some slight changes.. Folding side mirrors,illuminated power trunk button inside the trunk and i noticed that the voice commands work better than the 13.. These are just a few off the top of my head..If its not broke don't fix it

Just to qualify my statement, I'm a retired IT Professional so maybe my expectations are more realistic than others.

 

True, MLT is not very fast.  I've had it in my 2009 MKS, 2012 MKZ, and in my current 2015 MKZ.  One of my main beefs is that using Voice Controls you are basically navigating the menus with voice, which can be very slow.  It's often faster to just touch the screen to get where you need to be.

 

My own view is that overall, car manufacturers are terrible about developing user interfaces for the infotainment systems.  Forget Sync entirely.  What needs to happen is for Apple's CarPlay and whatever the Android system is to be implemented in the vehicles ASAP.  Apple et al. have the best user interfaces, and if that can be mirrored on the car, the customer will be very happy.   Customer is already familiar with the interface and knows how to use it.  Car manufacturer costs will go down as they will not need complicated electronics to support the system.  Win-Win for everybody.
