Lincoln reimagines the gear shifter with the new 2013 MKZ

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.

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.
