Its not as bad as you think in person. It fits very well with the overall style of the vehicle and flows very well into the fender arches and then across the belt line. The MKZs design is quite subtle and it looses its nuances in photographs...My point was that I don't think that the signature grille is wholly bad, it is just the particular version of it on the MKZ. That is why I was talking about previous models and the difference in the direction of the slats etc. Lincoln can stick with their design language and grille design while still changing, and editing it so that is looks a bit better. There is potential there, I just think that they need to bring in an editing eye.
