Lincoln has dropped a bit of a surprise with the pricing of the 2011 Lincoln MKZ hybrid. Unlike most other hybrid vehicles, there will be no price premium compared to the cheapest conventional model. The MKZ hybrid will start at $35,180, including destination and delivery, the same price as the front wheel drive 3.5-liter V6 model.
That puts the price at about $350 under the base Lexus HS250h. With city fuel economy that is six miles per gallon better than the Lexus and, arguably, much more attractive styling, the Lincoln hybrid may well find itself with quite a following in the marketplace.
