Lincoln can get rid of the MKZ sedan this year?

February 1, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

According to representatives of the American automaker, the mass production of the prestigious sedan will end in 2020, and from 2021 the car will not be sold at all.

As part of updating the entire lineup, the prestigious Lincoln brand, which in turn is owned by the auto giant Ford Motor Company, has confirmed its plans to discontinue production of the MKZ sedan this year. The assembly of this car is adjusted at the company’s factory in Mexico. According to official figures, the production of the MKZ sedan will be discontinued in mid-2020, but in 2021, its sales will officially stop.

¬†Rumors about the upcoming “demise” of the MKZ have been around for quite some years. It was previously assumed that the 2019 model year will be the last for this sedan. Later information suggested that the brand is considering a new rear-wheel drive sedan as a replacement for the model – the new product could be called Zephyr.

Lincoln’s announcement of the cessation of further production of the MKZ suggests that the assembly plant in Mexico will release capacity for the production of new Ford cars. However, the company did not offer any details about its future models. Given the strategy of the automaker, do not be surprised if these models turn out to be crossovers.

 With the demise of the MKZ, the Continental was the only traditional car in the Lincoln lineup. In addition, this may be the last sedan for the brand.
