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.

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.

It appears the MKZ is not getting the 360 view like the '19 Fusion, disappointing . No Drivers pkg for '19 either, don't know if dynamic torque vectoring is standard with the 3.0 or just dropped for good.

MKZ is getting the 360 view, or the 360 Co-Pilot Protect which includes BLIS, LKAS, and rain-sensing wipers.

In fact, the adaptive cruise control is also standard in MKZ while it is optional in the Fusion as you have to get 360 Co-Pilot Assist.

 

I see in Page 8 that selecting the 3.0L AWD will also come with torque vectoring and sport-tuned suspension which is what the Driver package was.
