I'm wondering by selecting S Drive in my MKZ how does it affect the performance of my MKZ. Will it change any performance versus D drive selection. Any quicker when accelerating from a standstill? (Too lazy to read manual)

The short answer is it changes the shift points keeping the RPM higher for better performance.

On my 6 speed Fusion it also enables the paddle shifters and locks out 6th gear unless I manually upshift with the paddles.  I usually end up driving around town in S and then switching to D at freeway cruising speeds to take advantage of the overdrive gear.

You can actually downshift using the paddles in D as well, but it resumes auto operation within a few seconds.  It's good for pre-downshifting when passing another car without having to put it in S and then go back to D.
