Exclamation Lincoln MKZ Headlights Are UGLY!

Ever since seeing the new MKZ, I always disliked it's headlight design and finally I found a way Lincoln can make the new MKZ look better, that is by using the MKC concept headlight design for it's mid-cycle refresh!

I agree with you but the square type projector headlamp from them still remain just a concept like for most vehicles. I still have yet to see a square projector out at the moment.

I don't see anything wrong with i like how the head light flow with the lincoln signature grille. i don't see it staying for long but in time maybe who knows they will eventually go with the square set up.

we can usually see the trends happening with the concepts. so I guess for the new refresh models of lincoln will probably have headlights closer to the MKC set up.

I don't see a huge difference between the two. The shape is largely the same and the look is defined much more by the grill shape than the actual shape of the headlights. I think I even prefer the MKZ headlight shape. It looks more sleek, which seems more appropriate for a sedan.

even if the headlamp was square in design with a round projector i bet people will be happy with it.

I would like the transition going to LED since they have longer life than the HID bulbs. The should be cheaper to replace when they do go out.

Is this the LED projectors that you speak of I can't even see anything but the reflectors inside the head lamp but this is just the concept.

Acura's RLX will be using their signature and very first Jewel eye LED projectors. Not sure if Lincoln would start implementing these in the MKZ. The MKX would see these before the MKZ does.
