    SYNC 3 Version 3.0 (North America)

    I took my 2017 mkz hybrid to the dealer for a power trunk issue...would not close sometimes... and i asked them to check my self upgraded sync 2.3 install. I couldn't get it to report the upgrade to Lincoln. When i got my car back I checked the Sync version and it is now 3.0. They upgraded it without me asking. No charge of course!

    Thanks a Lot.....the MKZ will get slightly worse fuel economy due to the additional weight and wider tires for sure. I was mainly concerned about the so called tweak for this..."The new software, Layden suggests, has the "engine speed harmonized with the [pedal] tip-in," producing a car that "feels connected, feels engaging, more like a driver's car." The engine response, he said, now feels "intuitive" to the driver"....this was posted on Greencarreports.com.
  7. I want to know if anyone has test driven a 2017 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid vs a 2013 thru 2016 MKZ Hybrid....To report any driving differences with the new software improvements that Ford/Lincoln were supposed to install on the new models?

    2017 hybrid software tweaks

    I apologize i did indeed miss the Moderators below your name. I'm well aware of the programming tools needed to program or re-program a PCM. i was referring to the SYNC updates that we performed ourselves in the past few years...3.6 3.7 3.8 etc. Some of these updates allowed our hybrid vehicles to perform better..MPG Reduction..although higher speed EV mode operation...etc.My last vehicle was a 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid in which i performed both the 3.7 and 3.8 updates Myself. I believe that if you are indeed a Moderator...My Original question has been answered. Thank You for your Enlightenment!!

    2017 hybrid software tweaks

    I wasn't referring to OTA updates....First of all i was making people aware that software tweaks were made on the 17 models...Second i was creating a topic to discuss...Maybe a moderator or two might actually read these discussions...Finally...I could have easily contacted Lincoln but then you wouldn't have known the answer....P.S,,,I was referring to the update via usb through my Lincoln Touch. Thanks for the reply!
  10. Will lincoln send these updates to 2013 thru 2016 mkz hybrid vehicles?.http://www.greencarreports.com/news/1101362_2017-ford-fusion-hybrid-energi-software-tweaks-for-drivability-improvements

    mkz hybrid suspension

    i understand the hybrid economics..its my second hybrid.but the display indicates that a change has been applied when i select each setting. i would never use the sport setting...but i was really looking forward to a nice softer ride...my last vehicle was a 2014 fusion hybrid and the ride seems pretty much the same.
  12. i have a 2016 mkz hybrid...I've tried the different settings...sport...normal...and comfort but i don't notice any difference. anyone else?
