Hi,

 

I am currently looking around for a used 2020 MKZ Hybrid with lowish miles.

 

I test drove a 2019 Reserve version and was wondering:

 

What is the top trim for the 2020 MKZ Hybrid? Does it only have 14 speakers? Or is there a trim with 20?

 

Does the 2020 MKZ Hybrid have a panoramic roof? Or is that only on a certain trim? And which?

 

How much should I expect to spend on a MKZ Hybrid w/ around 30-40k miles, panoramic roof, 20-speaker Revel system, year 2019-2020?

 

Anything else I should be on the look out for?

 

Thanks!!

Hi PD and welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum. I attached the 2019 and 2020 Lincoln MKZ Order Guides. You can find the answer to all your equipment questions in those Order Guides.

 

Concerning pricing: First...Yes you can get the Panoramic Roof and Revel Ultima Audio System in the Hybrid, according to trim levels.

For the 2020 model year, there are two trim levels. The base "MKZ Hybrid" and the "MKZ Hybrid Reserve". I am not sure at the moment what the 2019 trim levels were.

 

However, there are far too many variables to give any sort of accurate pricing information. Just for a few examples...Would you be purchasing from a Dealer or a Private Party? Which model year, 2019 or 2020, matters a lot. Condition, mileage, trim level etc. Even where you live matters.

 

Therefore, the best way to get a beginning idea on pricing would be to go to sites such as KBB.com, NADA.com, Edmunds.com etc., and work up pricing for exactly what you are looking for and looking at, from where you will be purchasing etc.

 

Feel free to ask any other questions you may have, let us know how you make out and good luck.

Thank you so much, this is exactly what I'm looking for!

 

Are there any major mechanical problems to be wary of for a MKZ Hybrid Reserve (500A) w/ FWD (L5L) and the Luxury Package (47B) or Magnetic Package (47D)? It's based off the Ford Fusion, right?

 

I plan on keeping the car for 20 years, if not longer. Riding around with my Dad in his Lincoln MK IV, then he had a Coffee Cream colored Town Car -- my childhood! Also I don't drive often, around 6-10k miles a year.

Hi PD. You are very welcome.

 

No major or unusual mechanical problems special to the MKZ Hybrid to be wary of. The same possible problems and areas to check when purchasing any used Hybrid.

 

Before buying, I would recommend downloading the MKZ Hybrid Owners Manuals from here:  https://www.fleet.ford.com/parts-service/resources/owner-manuals/

 

If you skim the important parts of the manuals, you can obtain a basic knowledge of the various electronics and computer systems in the car, in order to be able to check them for proper operation before buying.

 

Yes, the MKZ is based off the same basic underpinnings as the Fusion. So are the Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX/Nautilus. However, the MKZ  is a more luxury oriented vehicle with more features, a better ride, higher quality materials etc. etc.

 

Let us know how you make out and good luck.

I was/am in the market for a 2020 hybrid.  Unfortunately, the only ones that I had found were with a pano roof.  Don't want that cause there is no rear window shade available with the pano.

The other thing I've found is they are almost as much as a new car.  But, then, it's been a while since I last looked so prices may have changed.

Are there any problems, year 7-20 with the 2.0L GTDI I-4 Engine compared to the Turbo or v6 turbo? If driven say 6-12k miles/yearly, not racing just grocery, errands, etc.

 

What are the major components that could fail? And their prices to repair?

 

I'm trying to see if the hybrid engine is worth it compared to the other engines, because v4 non turbo, afaik, will fail less often then a turbo charged v4/6 through normal use. Also the hybrid cuts a quarter of the trunk space because of the battery, not sure if that makes a big difference.

 

The biggest feature I am looking for is the Panoramic roof. Second biggest is the Revel Ultima audio system. Everything else kind of falls by the way side if those two conditions are matched.

Hi PD. Is it safe to assume you meant to type "...year 17-20" , instead of "...year-7-20"?

 

If yes, there are several things to point out: First...It seems you have the engine descriptions confused. A "GTDI" engine (Gas Turbocharged Direct Injection) refers to turbocharged engines. By definition, a "GTDI" engine is a turbocharged engine.

Other than the Hybrid, there is no non-turbo 4 cylinder engine in the 2017-2020 MKZ.

In other words, the 2017-2020 MKZ 's are equipped with either a 2.0T GTDI (turbocharged) I-4 engine. A 3.0T GTDI (turbocharged) V-6. Or the 2.0L I-4 Hybrid.

 

Next...The 4 cylinder engines in the MKZ are all I-4 engines (Inline). There is no "V-4".

 

Next...Major components that "can" fail are anything, just as with any vehicle. However, major components rarely fail in an MKZ, just as with any vehicle.

 

Next...There are far too many variables to begin listing repair costs for multiple systems and components.

 

In my opinion, if your main feature concerns are the Panoramic roof and Revel Ultima audio system, and you don't need the high power of the 3.0T V-6 engine for "grocery, errands, etc.", you should stick to the MKZ Hybrid or the MKZ 2.0T engines. Then...If you care about getting the best mpg's, find a suitable MKZ Hybrid. If fuel mileage is not a top concern, then find a suitable MKZ 2.0T.

 

Keep us updated and good luck.

Yeah I was getting confused by acronyms and numbers. The goal was to get a hybrid and was concerned about engine failures, battery failures, poorly designed etc. Seems like everything I've been reading and seeing it's a very reliable car that for some reason deprecated hard over the years. (I'm guessing because they stopped making sedans? or the popularity of suvs etc.)

 

I think I'm getting close to finding the right one, now I have to deal with shipping the car, making sure if it has a poor service record, if its in good shape, etc. etc. And possibly trading-in my hybrid suv and whatnot.

 

Thanks!
