My Lincoln MKZ + Hybrid Weekend

CarThe folks at Ford are pretty awesome. My relationship with them started back in 2008 when they put me in a Ford Focus for a week, then in 2009 I got a Ford Fusion and last year a Ford Taurus and a Ford Fiesta.

This year, I'm stepping up with a Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. I drove the crap out of it this weekend, and it's both a sweet ride and amazing on gas. It's got this 3.5L Duratec V6 engine that offers 263 horsepower and 7.4L/100 km on the highway. All I know is that it was awesome in today's rain and I'm having trouble draining the tank.

Most of the Ford cars I borrow have Sync technology with Sirius radio, and I've started to look at my summer week or two with Sync as a vacation unto itself. It gets harder and harder to go back to my '99 Mazda Protege.

I've still got this car for a few more days, so I'll check back later. I'm actually unsure what the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid costs, and afraid to Google it and find out. If someone wants to let me know in the comments, I'll let you know how far out of my price range this vehicle is.

Ford is building some really nice vehicles. My dad purchased a fully loaded Fusion AWD last fall and it is unbelievably comfortable, fast, good on fuel and has enough toys that it will take you a year to figure out half of them.
I drive a Prius so I wonder how Fords Hybrid system works compared to Toyota's?

With all the freebies the last couple of years I'm sure you're driving a Ford vehicle of some type??

Must be nice to be a shill for whatever you can get. Obviously, I'm jealous.

@Rick C in Oakville, to answer your question, one word, better.

@anonymous, Ford does still own a very small part of Mazda.
