My Lincoln MKZ + Hybrid Weekend


The 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.
