About Lincoln Zephyr

    The Lincoln Zephyr debuted for the 2006 model year as a midsize luxury sedan. It would only be referred to as the Zephyr for one year, as Lincoln eventually changed the nameplate to its current moniker, the MKZ, in order to better fit in with the automaker's new naming scheme. When it premiered, the Lincoln Zephyr was outfitted with a hearty V6 engine directed through a standard six-speed automatic transmission. The car was quickly recognized for its smooth performance, upscale comfort, and reasonable price tag compared to its more expensive European competitors. Constructed off of the same platform as the Mercury Milan and Ford Fusion, the Zephyr boasts a front-engine, front-wheel drive layout, keeping in line with most modern domestic brands.

    Only one trim level was offered for the Zephyr. Under the hood was the aforementioned 3.0L V6, which produced up to 221 horsepower. The car was loaded with standard features including 17" alloy wheels, leather upholstery, wood accents, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats (w/memory), cruise control, a split-folding rear seat, remote keyless entry, and full power accessories. Additional options offered up were DVD navigation, a power moonroof, xenon HID headlights, ventilated seats, and a premium THX stereo system with 14 speakers. When the model became the MKZ the next year, the powertrain saw an upgrade to its engine configuration, as a 263-horsepower 3.5L V6 was introduced along with optional all-wheel drive and a restyled front-end.

    Safety features for the Lincoln Zephyr were prevalent inside and out. Standard were front-seat side airbags, head-protecting side-curtain airbags, traction control, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, and B-pillars (located between the front and rear doors), which direct energy from a side-impact away from passengers in the event of a crash. Although the Zephyr name was only in effect for essentially one year, its descendent the MKZ has carried on with its success. The Lincoln Zephyr received critical acclaim from throughout the automotive industry, including being named a contender for Motor Trend magazine's prestigious Car of the Year award (2006).'s 2006 Cars & Trucks Buyer's Guide declared that the Zephyr “successfully combines traditional Lincoln luxury & style in a package that rides on a modern and capable platform."

    Lincoln Zephyr: Pros and Cons
    Lincoln Zephyr: Pros and Cons

    Designed with the mission to attract younger buyers, the 2006 Lincoln Zephyr combines traditional Lincoln style and luxury in a package. The midsize sedan was the company's hope to achieve this goal, as the least expensive model in the lineup. The Zephyr unlike its less upscale twins, Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, has exclusive interior and exterior design elements. Riding on the extended version of the Mazda 6 platform, the model is surely wider and longer than the Mazda 6 and gives a capacious interior space for five adult passengers.

    What helped differentiate the vehicle from its luxurious siblings is the Zephyr's stylish center stack design and upscale interior materials (standard leather upholstery), and aluminum-finish trim. Other features that set it apart from the siblings are the navigation system, ventilated seats, and HID headlights. Carrying a 3.0-liter V6 engine, the model makes 221 hp. Staying the most luxurious in terms of design and features, the Zephyr loses when it comes to acceleration. Even though its performance is sufficient, its accelaration is weaker than the acceleration of the similarly priced Passat and Maxima. Therefore, some buyers would prefer the similar Milan which costs less than the Zephyr.
