So what is this MKC? I have seen pictures shown on the other threads and at this point I am still confused. Is it a Suv or is it a sedan type. How does it work with the MKZ if its an suv.

I really hope this happens I have always played with the idea of Lincoln coming out with a coupe. And now with an announcement like this formal or not this is exciting stuff.

The MKC headlights and grill would work on the MKZ since it's not all that different but why? Is the coupe model going to be wider at the front or the rear.

Was there any projected date on when this coupe could possibly make it to production?

And what do you guys think the cost would be like? More or less expensive than the sedan MKZ?

I don't see why the MKZ coupe should cost more but in most cases even with other manufacturers coupes do cost a bit more than the sedan counterpart.

LOL look how massive the render is, but im curious how you know the MKZ is lighter considering there has been no official position from Lincoln on this, let alone specs or protos ;)
I looked up the specs and it appears you're correct actually...Lincolns have always been heavy cars though.

2013 Lincoln MKZ sedan weight (AWD V6): 4148 lb

2013 Audi S5 weight: 3895 lb

2014 BMW 435i : 3527 lb

lopping off two doors should at least bring the MKZ under 4000 lbs

I would hate it if they called the new Lincoln 2 door an MKZ Coupe, it needs a name of it's own without any sedan version related to it.

If the coupe were to basically be the MKZ sedan, just in coupe form, I think that calling it the MKZ Coupe would make perfect sense. It would be the MKZ for people who want a coupe. I think that changing the name from that would confuse consumers, and make them expect something that is a bigger departure from the MKZ sedan.

What would be really nice is if Lincoln created a coupe built on the mustang platform, Call it the Mark something

Big cars need lovin too.

I agree with the diet, I mean weighing in at that much might hurt the bank when you consider the wight it has to haul around and how much gas it burns. Can't believe it's over 4,000 lbs.

I remember hearing back in the day that the more heavier the car is the more stable the car is to the ground making it comfortable inside the cabin for the passengers. Boy were they wrong, did they not think about what the suspension does and how the different spring rates can drastically change the feel of the ride.

Yes. One thing they should consider is for next years MKZ is to give it a diet and same goes for the rumored coupe variant if it were to happen some day.

haha that old folk talk. My uncle had said something along the same lines.

The MKZ needs an improvement before they even decide to make a coupe. I don't think it should be that simple to just slap on two doors than four. Parts should be changed like different suspension, less weight, a different look. what do you think?

Well in that case they have so many letters to add to the end of MK. :rolleyes:

What about MKV? unless you guys could think of something better...

The miles and miles of wires for all the gizmos inside add up quick. The glass roof doesn't help either. You almost need the extra torque from the MKZ Hyb if you want anything out of the hole
