Better Fuel Economy. More Power.
An Ecoboost® engine allows the performance of a V8
with the fuel economy of a V6.
EcoBoost combines two technologies: direct injection (DI) and twin turbocharging. DI produces a cooler, denser charge that generates more power per drop of fuel, while the two small engine-cooled turbochargers spool up more quickly than a single large turbo.
Energy from the engine’s exhaust, which would otherwise be wasted, rotates the turbine wheels. Each turbine is coupled to a compressor that pressurizes incoming air, significantly increasing output per liter. You experience instantaneous low-end torque responsiveness with virtually no turbo lag.
The class-exclusive Easy Fuel capless fuel filler is a spring-loaded flap that eliminates the need for a separate gas cap.
Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is the perfect choice for drivers looking to combine the luxury of a premium midsize sedan with excellent fuel efficiency. The following features distinguish the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid:
The Lincoln MKZ hybrid features the next-generation SmartGauge™ with EcoGuide. It helps coach owners to drive more efficiently, while creating a visual reward for the driver’s efforts to operate the car in a fuel-efficient manner on a long-term, day-to-day basis.
Atkinson-cycle engines are utilized in hybrid systems because they offer superior efficiency with a minimal reduction in power. The trade-off in power is offset by the instantaneous torque available from the electric traction motor. The marriage of gasoline and electric power sources delivered through the Powersplit eCVT, combined with re-generative braking, is what delivers the exceptional efficiency and performance.
The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid’s regenerative braking system can capture over 90% of brake energy that is normally lost during braking and turn it into electricity that is then stored in the vehicle’s battery pack for later use.
