“Enabling our military and their families the ability to experience the premium aspects of the MKZ is an honor,” said Matt VanDyke, director, global Lincoln. “We are so encouraged the attributes of the Lincoln MKZ are resonating with our customers as we continue to reinvent our brand by providing the highest level of quality, design and personal service.”

For the second time, the MKZ takes top honors for the highly efficient 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine, its abundant standard and available safety features, and its standing as an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+.

The 2014 MKZ gets an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. Standard and optional safety features include Active Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning, Lane-Keeping System, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Cross-Traffic Alert, and Inflatable rear safety belts.
