Model Highlights

The 2015 Lincoln MKZ makes a statement with an attractive, luxurious package that offers much to like in the competitive mid-level luxury segment.

The Lincoln MKZ comes standard as a front-wheel-drive 4-door sedan in several available package trims. Base cars are powered by a 2.0L Ecoboost 4-cylinder. The turbocharged engine features direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) and produces 240 horsepower and 270 ft-lb of torque. A 3.7L V6 is also available, also utilizing Ti-VCT, which helps the engine develop an impressive 300 horsepower and 277 ft-lb of torque. A 6-speed automatic with SelectShift paddled shifters is standard. Lincoln's "intelligent" all-wheel drive System is optional with either engine and provides enhanced handling and control by redirecting power to the appropriate wheel for best traction in a variety of conditions. A 2.0L Atkinson-cycle hybrid-electric powertrain comes on the front-wheel-drive Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, offering a total of 188 horsepower and returning an EPA-estimate 47 mpg in the city and 44 mpg on the highway.

Four equipment groups are offered on the Lincoln MKZ: Premiere, Select, Reserve and Preferred. Standard features in Premiere include heated leather seating with front row 10-way power adjustability and driver memory, wood trim throughout, SYNC with MyLincoln Touch infotainment system on an 8-inch LCD touch-screen center stack, and an 11-speaker premium CD/MP3 sound system. Moving up to the Select trim adds a wood steering wheel, rearview camera and parking sensors, as well as HD Radio technology. The Reserve trim gets a navigation system with voice recognition, blind spot information system with a cross-traffic alert and a power trunk lid with soft close. Finally, the top-of-the-line Preferred trim comes with 19-inch polished aluminum wheels, heated steering wheel and rear seats and THX II Premium Audio.

Popular standalone options on the Lincoln MKZ include two different moonroofs. The 'single panel' roof is a traditional remote glass sunroof, while the dual panel moonroof features an opening panel above the seats, with a fixed pane in the ceiling above the rear seats, which includes a power rear sunshade.

Standard safety features on the Lincoln MKZ include a forward and reverse sensing system, AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control, an SOS Post-Crash Alert System, a bevy of airbags and traction control.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured February 3, 2012, to March 20, 2015, and 2015 Ford Edge vehicles manufactured February 26, 2015, to February 28, 2015, and originally sold, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. In the affected vehicles, snow or water containing road salt or other contaminants may corrode the electric power steering gear motor attachment bolts.

Consequence
If the bolts corrode, the steering gear motor may detach from the gear housing resulting in a loss of power steering assist. Loss of power steering assist would require a higher steering effort, especially at lower speeds, which may increase the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will apply sealer and replace the steering gear motor bolts as required. If one or more of the steering gear motor attachment bolts are broken or missing, a new steering gear will be installed in the vehicle. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on June 24, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S14.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Ford Fusion vehicles manufactured November 2, 2012, to July 31, 2014, and 2013-2015 Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured November 14, 2012, to July 31, 2014. In the event of a crash, heat from the deployment of a seat belt pretensioner may cause a front seat belt anchor cable to fail.

Consequence
If the driver or front passenger seatbelt cables cannot properly restrain the front seat occupants, they would be at an increased risk of injury.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will apply a protective coating to the seat belt cable, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Owners will be notified of the safety issue beginning on January 20, 2017. Remedy parts are expected to be available by the second quarter of 2017, and at that time, owners will be mailed a second notice. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16S42.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2015 Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured February 17, 2014, to March 19, 2015, and equipped with daytime running lights (DRL). In the affected vehicles, the parking lights do not reduce their light output from a DRL level when used in conjunction with the headlights. As such, the light output may exceed the the permissable amount allowed by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Consequence
If the light output is excessive, oncoming traffic may be temporarily blinded, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford has notified owners, and dealers will update the lighting control software, free of charge. The recall began on May 8, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for the recall is 15C02.

Dates of Manufacture
