The Zephyr, which debuted in 2006, officially became the MKZ in 2007. Inside, this family-friendly sedan provided plenty of space for long commutes and road trips. Its upscale style offered major appeal. The original MKZ's 3.0-liter V6 engine generated 211 horses and 205 pound-feet of torque - plenty of power for a swift performance.
In 2010, these models got a makeover, which included a sleek, modern exterior. Inside, the cabin sported a retro design and handsome wood trim. Under the hood, a 3.5-liter V6 increased output to 263 horsepower and 249 pound-feet of torque, creating a smoother, more refined ride.
As you shop these models, be on the lookout for a few alterations. In 2011, the MKZ Hybrid debuted, giving shoppers an eco-friendly option. Beginning in 2010, the MKZ offered quite a long list of comfort and convenience features. Still, all models from this generation make a great option for used buyers.
