I’ve owned my fair share of luxury automobiles and, if I had to list one thing that’s absolutely the same about all of them, it would be the terrible gas mileage. Luxury vehicles are just that – luxurious in every sense of the word. They’re usually bigger, roomier on the interior with leather everything, and with strong, powerful engines. Those engines are what usually take the gas mileage down to a place we don’t like to be with our wallets, but hey, you have to give a little to get a little, right?
Well, when I was talking with the team at Glenn Ford Lincoln here in Lexington the other day, they let me know that the 2016 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid features take care of all of that – it’s a luxury vehicle that boasts a 2.0L I-4 Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine delivering 188 net horsepower with remarkable hybrid performance. This means that you get beautiful interior along with best-in-class 41 city MPG for your Lexington commute and Kentucky road trips! Nice! Let’s see how they do it:
A lithium Ion battery means that it can be recharged, again and again. The 2016 MKZ Hybrid features a state-of-the-art 1.4kWh lithium-ion battery that offers more power with less weight than its predecessor. Through advanced hybrid architecture, the MKZ can travel up to 85 miles per hour in all-electric mode. How’s that for high-tech!
2.0L Atkinson-Cycle Engine
Let’s talk about this engine a bit more… besides being fast, and great on gas mileage, it helps you when you need it the most – the MKZ Hybrid gas engine kicks in extra power when needed, such as when passing or merging. Efficient and exhilarating, indeed!
The cost of the 2016 MKZ Hybrid is exactly the same as the gasoline-only version. If you’ve always wanted to go green, now is the best time to do it! Add the extra benefit of saving cash on Lexington gas prices, to boot, and it’s a win all around!
If you’ve been wanting to make the move towards luxury, now’s the time to come down to the top Lincoln dealership in Kentucky, Glenn Ford Lincoln, and take a test drive of the fuel-efficient 2016 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid! Make sure you ask for the best Lexington new vehicle specials, and get pre-approved to buy a car before heading over – you may just want to drive one home today!
