2010 Lincoln MKZ - Click above for a high-res image gallery

If you have many leather-bound books and your apartment smells of rich mahogany, then you might be interested in the new Executive Appearance Package option for the 2010 Lincoln MKZ. Available in late summer, the new trim package offers "more traditional luxury appointments" for Lincoln's base sedan, a result of early sales showing buyers preferring well-equipped models. The package comes in Dark Charcoal or Cashmere colors and includes unique stitching on the door trim, an insert on the console armrest, a genuine Swirl Walnut wood console and instrument panel accents, along with premium floor mats with the Lincoln star. Full details are available in the press release after the jump.

      Can I get this on a Fusion?

        I believe Remusrm said it best:

        "Is not just the message, but in any case, I would take a salary cut then be on the unemployment line... some people can not see the pros and cons of such things. "

        Hey why not ask for it in the Fiesta. What is it about people and idiotic questions that just pees me off?

      Change the badge and the comments would be 90% positive 10% negative, instead of the other way around!

      I just love the grill on the font, looks like a monster awaiting its prey.

      Good design

      Take a look at that silver plastic trim that is begging to be pulled out...

      Either it's not seated properly or some engineer didn't perform a tolerance stack-up.

        Actually the interior is not bad at all. My biggest complaint is the way the NAV display doesn't line up with the rest of the center stack. Everything else is of comparable quality with everything else in the 30-40K range.

        As mentioned for that type of money I would rather have a SHO, but having said that this vehicle is meant and exists to appeal to the ES350 crowd (a vehicle that has done very well for Lexus). That said it doesn't drive all that bad, it just doesn't inspire you to carve corners. And that's fine because not everyone wants a BMW. It's safe, comptent, packed with enough tech features, reliable, solidly built and roomy.

      This car is a joke. It harlde competes with the OLD Lacrosse...

      Nothing more than a (horribly) rebadged Fusion...that is (surprisingly) uglier than the Fusion...and it is way pverpriced. This Lincoln Fusion has MKTaurus pricing.

      see it good!
      • 5 Years Ago
      This could give a great option for those who don't want to drive the monster Town Car. Could boost already impressive sales.
      • 5 Years Ago
      WHY!!!! .... is it really that difficult for American cars to be appealing. There has to be a designer sitting there, quiet, not speaking up, silently vomiting during his/her break when crap like this is created.

      Autoblog, offer a contest in which auto design students can "Help Save American Cars." I am sure the designs that will be submitted from STUDENTS will be far more superior then anything created by these corporate rejects.

      Is the walnut trim real? I doubt it's faked plastic.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Says "genuine." That would mean it's real.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Reminds me of a sales pitch made by Mr. Hainey to Mr. Douglas in the 60's TV show Green Acres: "Feel that. Why, that's real genuine imitation leather."

      Where are the pictures of this rich walnut trim? Am I missing something here?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Those are autoblog's pics of the regular model that they test drove a while back. There don't appear to be any pictures of the new appointments....

      those have to be the largest tail lights in history. yuk
        • 5 Years Ago
        No, Lincoln has that record already. Mark VIII LSC...

      A Fusion with walnut is better than a Fusion without, that's called a Milan.
