Some 2014 Car of the Year love could of eased the pain of a botched launch like a whisky lunch eases the pain of waking up Monday, but the MKZ is not eligible for the CoY award...

See remember this time last year when MKZ advertisements were ramping up and Ford was aggressively pushing to have MKZ on the '13 CoY ballot? Well they succeeded but MKZ did not. MKZs botched launch had the car eligible but because of QC and supply issues only a few were sold in December with sales dormant until mid-spring '13.

The rule is that a vehicle may only make the ballot once, no exceptions...

A refresh would help the MKZ out a lot. The front end on the MKZ really bothers me, especially after seeing what they did with the MKC concept front end using the same design language. It's just too ugly and too feminine, I bet it's one of the things killing sales.

MKZ made the long list but not the short list.

A refresh could do wonders for the MKZ. The MKZ could be an amazing vehicle it just needs a bit of editing and some love mainly at the front end. I can't see Lincoln giving up its entire grille design though, so perhaps we are asking for too much.

Exactly. They do that, and they're golden. They basically need to make a mini version of what was seen in the new MKS renderings.

But the MKZ was just remodelled not long ago.

They just need to fix their QC issues to be honest.

Even though it was redesigned not long ago, it's no reason not to make changes now, some car makers do it. Honda did it, and it saved them.
when and what... As far as i know no automaker has given a car a complete refresh after less than a year on sale... Honestly those of you who don't like the front end have you seen MKZ in person? Its actually quite proportionate and the back end is pure SEX when driving behind it...

Most of Lincolns previous cars had a similar front end - maybe not as outstanding but you can see resemblances.

Not sure why people are reacting like this is the first time they've seen a car like this. Just look at the old MKZ..

exactly, and MKS debuted the swooper look of the new MKZ anyways. This was not a radical change, dont like grill, don't buy the car. Don't like her face, don't shack up...
