The  antenna on the non-panoramic roof version has the antenna imbedded in the rear window. They couldn't do that with the panoramic roof.

Hi joebrown,

I have a 2016 Black Label with a panoramic roof it it doesn't have the eantenna on the quarter pannel. I'm not sure when they stopped putting it there.

Really!? This brought tears of joy to my eyes. LOL. Then I wonder where they're embedding the antenna? Maybe they finally did develop a way to put it into the rear glass somehow...even with the panoramic roof. Hmmm...

I do have the adaptive cruise control .. Had it on my 13 and now on my 15... It is amazing living in So Calif with all the traffic on the freeway I just set it at 65 and it will slow down to a crawl  I don't have to do a thing just steer.. I think it disengages at 10 MPH.. So I don't know how much more they can improve on it

That's exactly what I mean. There are some cars that don't disengage at 10 mph, but are able to use adaptive cruise all the way down to a complete stop. However, I believe these cars all have autonomous braking as a feature.

bobhamb,

 

Do you happen to have a picture of your MKZ with a panoramic roof--but no antenna? I asked Lincoln if it was true that they stopped putting it there on 2016 models, and if so, where they were able to embed the antenna. The people I talked to had no clue about this change, so they couldn't help me.

Wow, I guess it's not consistent as to when/why they do or don't add that antenna. Maybe we'll get the real answer some day. And you get pretty good AM, FM, and XM reception?

I'll take a picture without the entenna when I get home from work (if I remember).

Mine is a 2015 with the panoramic roof.  The AM and FM work just fine.

Here's a picture of my 2016 with no antenna. Sirius uses its own antenna, but AM, FM and HD work fine.

No antenna on my car

Wow...I'm wondering why Lincoln couldn't figure this out in 2013-14!? Awesome.
