2013 Lincoln MKZ photos leaked, is the brand ready to take on BMW and Audi?

Here we are – another leak before the 2012 New York Auto Show. This time, we have leaked images of the new 2013 Lincoln MKZ sedan what’s interesting here is that the leak is coming form a European site Autoforum.cz.

The debut of the new 2013 Lincoln MKZ is a very important one for the brand. Ford is hoping that the new 2013 MKZ will help distinguish Lincoln as a respectable luxury brand that will be considered by costumers that are shopping for BMWs, Cadillacs and Audis. While Lincoln’s history and level of luxury is outstanding, I’m not sure if those are the brands it should be targeting. I feel like Lincoln should be gunning after Lexus, Buick, Acura as its main target.

I’m not sure if I – or even Lincoln buyers – care whether their car can kill a 5-Series, CTS or A6 in a drag strip. They just care about luxury and smooth rides.

Either way, we’ll have all the technical specs and other details for you from New York later this week. Stay tuned.
