Lincoln has officially fired up the configurator for the 2013 MKZ, keeping the option sheet fairly simple with a total of five trim packages. The party gets started with Premiere trim, which includes SYNC with MyLincoln Touch, a huge 10.1-inch LCD information screen and leather seating. Stepping up to Select trim will throw in a rear-view camera, wood steering wheel and new LED accent lighting outside for an additional $1,100. Throw an extra $2,050 at the MKZ and you'll be rewarded with Reserve trim. At $39,450 including destination, the third-most expensive option package includes navigation with voice recognition, a blind-spot information system with cross-traffic awareness and cooled front seats.

Interestingly enough, the MKZ is available with two sunroof options. At $43,330, Preferred trim includes a single-panel sunroof alongside niceties like 19-inch wheels, a heated steering wheel and a THX stereo system with 14 speakers. If you want that fancy retractable panoramic roof we saw when the sedan debuted, you'll have to plunk down an extra $1,795 for the pleasure.

The MKZ offers buyers a total of five drivetrain options, from a 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder or a 3.7-liter V6 in either front- or all-wheel drive configuration to a 2.0-liter hybrid. Interestingly enough, choosing the gas-electric powertrain doesn't add anything to the price, as it's the exact same price as the base engine, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost, for all trim levels. Head over to the configurator to have a look for yourself.

      A luxury hybrid from Ford? Let's not kid ourselves. Ford can't even make a decent conventional powered vehicle let alone a more complex hybrid. Lincoln, Ford's luxury brand, ranks even lower than GM's Cadillac. Consequently, Mercedes, BMW and Lexus have been eating Ford's and GM's lunch for several decades. The demise of the two domestic luxury brands are the direct result of mismanagement from Detroit and Dearborn .And to charge over $53k for this Johnny-Come-Lately is why arrogant Ford is going nowhere.

        Happy happy joy joy happy happy joy joy... Is being happy such an ordeal? If things make you sad or angry, just ignore them.

        Are you kidding me dude? Ford and GM make great cars (now)... stop perpetuating an old paradigm, unless you are talking about Chrysler...

        Ummm... You act as though Lincoln's MKZ hybrid is something new? Lincoln's MKZ Hybrid has been mopping the floor with Lexus for years now. Lexus even discontinued the HS 250h they built to take on the MKZ hybrid.

        Since when did Cadillac die and go away? Caddy is alive and well, and making strides in sales and product. Lincoln is the one on life support here.

      Can't find on their web site if the rear seats fold down on the hybrid. That was the main thing that kept me from considering a MKZ/Fusion before. Also, wasn't the hybrid the same price on the previous MKZ? I seem to remember so. Yep, just checked their site again. The current hybrid is the same price as the non-hybrid. However, I didn't check to see if the equipment levels are the same.

      Hybrid at no extra cost? It will be really interesting to see what percentage are sold as hybrid.

      If you need Nav or GPS to show you where to go, you shouldn't be driving. Use a taxi or ride the bus.

      It doesn't get any uglier than this car.

        Nope, completely disagree. This car is a national disgrace. It has been designed by braind damaged children with crayons. The interior looks plas-tastic and dated.

        I think it looks great! Inside and out. Much better looking than the last MKZ.

      Yes, the rear looks very nice. Did I type that?

      Interesting model selections. I'd like to see the Nav system available with the "base" model, you have to go up two levels to get the nav.

        Fordfuture, when do you actually use Nav? I have a GPS and almost never use it, so Nav seems like an odd thing to want in a car. I have a phone that will get me to the odd place I have never been, but having my car do the same thing never seemed important. I would bet that you like the idea of having it much more than you actually use it. And I think the MKZ looks pretty good at 39 mpg combined.

      I'm sorry, but 53K for a Ford Fusion is just crazy.

      Expensive Fusion Lincoln MKZ $39,450 Ford Fusion hybrid $28,775 MMmm tough choice? Only folk with "Mug" tattooed on their heads will pay the extra £10,675 for a Lincoln badge.

      I agree. Factory nav systems are the first thing to be obsoleted. Most phones handle it better, and are replaced more frequently.

      I like a NAV system, because it's always on. I use it to find 3 or 4 different ways home from work. And when driving to a new location, I like to find 3 or 4 ways to get there. I like the voice warning of upcoming turns, and the big screen, with street names. I find the phone is too small to handle, changing directions, while driving. I the phone doesn't recalculate your route on a missed turn.
