So September was actually a really good month for Lincoln and its MKZ. The MKZ sold 12% more vehicles this September than last September. That is 2874 MKZs sold for the month. And, overall, MKZ sales are up 1% from last year at this point. I take that as a win for Lincoln. Hopefully things continue in the right direction.

not a direct comparison, this MKZ didnt go on sale until Feb/March '13. The MKZ from August '12 is this...

At the time this MKZ didnt seem to bad for stying and all but after seeing the 2013 model it just puts this one in shame. Very dated...

It doesn't look like a hearse, but it does look like a car that a funeral home director would drive. Or what the hearse driver drives in when he isn't driving the hearse. It makes it slightly less impressive having numbers like that when you consider what you are comparing it to. Obviously the redesign was needed and has been somewhat effective.

funeral homes use Cadillac actually. Just saying. LOL a 1% increase over last years MKZ is quite pitiful, although for now I will chalk it up to the 2013 MKZ not having a full sales year as its launch was delayed...

If you look at the data the '13 MKZ sold like a kinghellfreak in April and May compared to the '12 MKZ. But has not managed to put up impressive numbers over its predecessor in the rest of the months. sales are pretty much the same.

its still only a 1% increase over last year. it might be a boost compared to last month in total sales.

But Lincoln still has a long way to go.

It's not bad news, but it is as close to bad news as possible without being bad news. I think that Lincoln is starting to figure out what it needs to do in order to get out of its slump in the future. More models that people actually want to buy!

Like Infiniti, Lincoln should plan to put out plenty of new and improved models over the next little while.

That and they should look into partnering up with some other successful car maker, something Infiniti is doing with Mercedes as we speak. But who can they partner up with?

Yeah I agree it just has a dark look too it almost freaky now you mention it. All it needs is a purple siren light and it passes as a funeral service vehicle.

Infiniti was making good cars before they partnered with Benz though, and its only to develop a cheesy FWD platform for Infinitis Q30 and Mercedes CLA and GLA. If people harp on the MKZ for not being luxury they should definitely lynch the CLA for not being a real Mercedes...

How about Lincoln partners with Ford... I heard they're doing pretty well :cool:

The MKZ sales are likely still hurting a bit due to a few negative reviews and some owners complaining about poor QC.

If they can fix those problems I think sales will improve.

2014 models should start to roll out any time soon, hopefully they did make the changes needed on those models so we can have some better MKZ's.
Did anyone receive their 2014 MKZ yet?
