Thank you for this update.  It came in handy at the dealership last week.  I put in my order this morning so hopefully it goes through and I will get one this year.

The 2019 Lincoln MKZ Order Guide has still not been released via the Ford Fleet site. As to why is anyone's guess. Maybe they're trying to decide whether they should reintroduce it with a traditional model name instead of the ridiculous MKZXYZ alphabet model designation that is so confusing! Actually, renaming the MKZ would give them more media opportunities.

Ford lists the USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) as having opened on 05/21/2018 but still has not released the 2019MY Lincoln MKZ Order Guide.

Although we've seen zero evidence of this, it would be interesting if the MKZ was due to still receive the cancelled Fusion facelift alongside the Mondeo.  I guess it depends on China if they want to keep MKZ around and rename it, but production has to be moved to China I would think.  Reportedly the MKZ is a big money looser for Lincoln in the US so it's possible it will be dropped from this market alongside Fusion.  Right now everything at Lincoln is very much up in the air as I imagine they need to make some decisions soon if it is not a financially viable business.  

 

Regardless, all of this isn't happening in the next couple of months unless Lincoln plans to immediately halt MKZ production.

No way is the Ford family going to abandon Lincoln. Alan Mulally wanted to kill off Lincoln and have the company concentrate only on the Ford Division but it was the Ford family and their controlling interest in the company that saved Lincoln and agreed to reinvest and rebuild the Lincoln brand. They may decide to kill off the MKZ but it's not likely before the end of the 2019 Model Year. And don't forget the potential sales in China as the Lincoln models get updated and expanded.
