2016 Lincoln MKZ changes
The upcoming 2016 Lincoln MKZ will be based on the Ford Fusion. This might be kind of weird because the vehicles are completely different in terms of the exterior design. We must admit that the company has done a great job when it comes to the look of the car and most of the broader-market siblings won’t have what the new MKZ has. The newcomer will have newly designed headlights and taillights. Both the headlights and taillights will come with LED technology. The bumper will also be revised, together with door handles. As you can notice, the company paid attention to details and no wonder the vehicle looks so great. There will also be newly designed, winged grille to fulfill the appealing look of the car. The thing we like the most about the vehicle is a capless-fuel-filler system that enables a user to refill without getting hands dirty. When it comes to the exterior design of the 2016 Lincoln MKZ, we don’t have an objection
