I’ll be honest, when I checked out the Lincoln MKZ at the 2012 New York Auto Show last month – I totally missed this cool new feature.

Replacing the boring and mundane automatic gear-shifter of our days, Lincoln has come with a new way to present the gear-selector by placing it on the side-strip of the center stack.

I think it’s pretty creative and innovative.

Check out our post on the 2013 Lincoln MKZ.

Refresher: The base 2013 Lincoln MKZ will be offered with a FWD/AWD and a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost making 240-hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can also opt for a 3.7 liter V6 making 300-hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. The 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder mated to an electric-motor – together they make 188-hp and 129 lb-ft of torque.

    Novel idea for those whom want to just use a car as a means to get to point A to B.
    For those whom truly love to drive a car “SAVE THE MANUAL”.

    Hah, my mother had a 1951 (if I remember correctly) Packard that had a push button electronic shift.

    This car looks like its been castrated. The cockpit doesn’t have one…

    Exactly, “Push Button Shifters” are nothing new. That said, there was some very good reasons why the late 1950’s was the last time we saw them. Plus, even luxury automatics have the ability to change to 1,2,3,4,5 gears because in the mountains that ability to select a gear is VERY helpful. Guess they made a nicer looking granny mobile.
