Recognizing that the Zephyr was shy on horsepower and a little sloppy at the controls, the engineering team upped the V-6 powertrain to 263 hp (from 221), kept the six-speed automatic transmission, offered all wheel drive as an option and firmed up the ride and handling. Even without these improvements, the Zephyr has sold surprisingly well for Lincoln, so the brand rightly expects even better results from the MKZ. And while the car will never be compared with a BMW Three Series or an Acura TL in the handling department, it is certainly a match for the likes of the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima.Yay! Lincoln is as good as the Accord (which starts at $18,600). Way to go, Lincoln!
That's a snap of the '06 Lincoln Zephyr with some big-ass wheels. We wonder if you can really get wheels that big from Lincoln.
