How do you like the 2019 MKZ Hybrid?

Recommended Posts

Looking to possibly lease a 2019 MKZ Hybrid with all the trimmings including the Revel 20 speaker audio system.

Anyone have this vehicle and want to comment on the ride?

I will probably lease it if I can put $7k down total (includes destination charges) and about $430 a month ($12k miles a year)

Hi NJRonbo. While I can not speak directly for the 2019 Hybrid, I do have a 2018 MKZ 3.0T AWD Reserve. All options except a moonroof.  We love it. The 2018 and 2019 MKZ's are identical.

I have found the Revel Ultima audio system to be excellent, especially for high quality audio sources/files.  As with all audio systems, the sound quality is only as good as the audio source.  Sirius Radio is lower quality sound, but that is due to the low bit broadcast by Sirius. HD Radio and flash drive sound sources are excellent.

The ride is great and has several settings.  Comfort, Normal and Sport.  So you can set the ride for separate use in Drive or Sport transmission modes. I have it set for Comfort while in Drive and Sport when in Sport.

I would highly recommend the 2018-2019 MKZ. Good luck with your shopping.

Just finalized a lease on a 2019 MKZ, fully loaded.  Hybrid.

 

Does this have a digital speedometer?  I am just remembering that the 2016 MKX did not and that was a huge disappointment.,

Hi NJRonbo.  The non-hybrid 2018 MKZ does.  I am not 100% sure about the hybrid models, but I would safely assume they do to.  It is accessed on my 2018 MKZ Reserve 3.0T AWD, through the Drivers Information Center buttons on the right side of the steering wheel. I am assuming the 2019 models are the same.

Good luck with your new MKZ!

If you have time could you post steps to find it?

it may be a fruitless effort as I have looked through every driver info setting and there is no digital speedometer 

thanks

Hi NJRonbo.  Congratualtions! Looks great. Magnetic Gray Metallic? Same color as my 2018. In fact, I almost purchased from George Wall, but was eventually able to negotiate a better final price from another Dealership. 

Concerning the digital speedometer reading, here is how I access it on my non-hybrid 2018:

Using the touchpad on the right side of the steering wheel do the following (realizing mine is a non-hybrid)-

- Press the left arrow on the right touchpad to access the menu.

- Press the down arrow on the touchpad to highlight "Speedometer".

- Press the "OK" button in the middle of the touchpad.

Voila! A digital speedometer in the middle of the dash display!

And in addition to reading the Owners Manual, I would also recommend scrolling through, experimenting and playing with all the different settings in the Drivers Information Center and Infotainment/Navigation/SYNC screen. There is quite a bit there, and now that you have your new MKZ, it is much more fun to do than reading the manual alone.

Best of luck with your new MKZ!

Concerning the digital speedometer reading...hoping it is similar on a 2019 MKZ Hybrid, here is how I access it on my non-hybrid 2018:

If my instructions do not work for your 2019 Hybrid, navigate around the Driver Information Center settings in your car to find where the Digital Speedometer is hiding.

And in addition to reading the Owners Manual, I would also recommend scrolling through, experimenting and playing with all the different settings in the Drivers Information Center and Infotainment/Navigation/SYNC screen. There is quite a bit there, and now that you have your new MKZ, it is much more fun to do than reading the manual alone. And there are likely many more driver configurable settings available on a Hybrid.

Best of luck with your new MKZ!

Stupid system here on Blue Oval does not allow editing after a very short time, so I am left to quoting myself above to add to my previous comments...lolololol.

Unfortunately, no speedometer in the Hybrid version.  Just a compass with road sign speed limit.

Best of luck with it.  It looks good even when wet, these constant rainy days in Jersey are getting old.  t111015.gif

 

See ya on the MKZ forum...

Great news!

 

I finally found the Speedometer!  It is in the hybrid!

It's on the LEFT side of the screen and you have to use the up/down buttons under driver display settings to find it.

So happy!
