The Lincoln MKZ is currently offered as a FWD and AWD option. Would any of you guys buy a RWD version. How much more would you be willing to pay for it?

Most people say RWD is better than FWD. I agree, but I think the question of if it is necessary also plays a factor. For a performance coupe, I say absolutely. For a luxury sedan like the MKZ, it's not so important.

RWD with the V6 model for sure, it's a big V6 so why not. Plus Lincoln is the type of brand that always had RWd vehicles and a RWD setup on it's smallest sedan would make it a ton of fun.

not liking the FWD and FWD bias AWD system on it currently

Yah I'll agree with that. The V6 aligned with a RWD would be much more preferable. But I don't think I would be willing to spend too any higher.

Lincoln needs a FWD vehicle, the MKZ is one of their best selling sedans and if they want to keep up with the times, having at least one FWD vehicle is what they have to do. Also it's a great setup to start thinking of turning into an EV

MKZ hardtop EV = WANT

Going EV could be successful but there is also a bit of risk. There is not many luxury cars that are EV right now, so the market could be wide open if there is a demand for it.

Well to begin with Lincoln has only a few cars. Unlike other brands that have so many lines consumers get confused to decide on which one is best suitable for them.

This plays well for Lincoln in a way if you think about it. They only have a few vehicles to perfect. Now if they offered three different drive trains within the same vehicle that might now be a bad idea. This will reach out to a number of consumers with different needs whether if it safety, a sports sedan or just a piece of mind for the winter. Having different drivetrains would help.

I'd say if you have that idea i mind and interest for an EV then just wait till there are more than just one manufacturer implementing luxury EVs.

it is a competitive segment as it is. If that is the solution I think they need to get on it ASAP. What other things do you think would help?

true, it would help especially being in a competitive segment. I always thought an MKZ EV would be great, if they add that it will create even more brand uniqueness.

An MKZ EV would be interesting but the cost of one will keep it at the bottom. Just imagine how much it will end up costing. With that price consumers would be looking else where.

i think there would still be a market for an electric model.
all the other electric vehicles aren't as nicely equipped as the mkz is.
it might end up costing $50k before rebates but worth it if you want luxury in an electric car

Lincoln needs to do something to stand out. Cadillac has the ELR EV Coupe which already helps with showing a side of Cadillac never seen before, it's time Lincoln does it's part. Moving with where the industry is going an ELR EV rival or something close will make the luxury EV battle very fun.

lincoln needs to bring back a coupe
a 2015+ mustang based coupe.
2015 continental coupe?

That would bring them back in to the mix. This is what Lincoln needs in there artillery. A sport coupe would do their brand good and get them the right exposure. what do you guys think?

YES! Once they have established that they can finally go ahead and fight head to head with cadillac but even if they were to do this now they would have some catching up to do.

Some one should write a letter with the coupe idea get a good lengthy discussion going and get some signatures backing it up and send it off to Lincoln headquarters.
