Check out the upscale interior. Lincoln better step it up or there is no place for the MKZ

So is this a facelift/refresh? Or a totally brand new gen?

^ I get the feeling it's like a 4.5LS refresh so major/minor

Interesting gear shift selector. Knobs are in and pushbuttons are out?

i wonder how long will it take for media to call it Camry beater... all those articles from 2012 and 2013 look really funny these days.

Well to be fair, some of the Camry's competitors outclass it in several areas. Enough the point where they should be Camry-beaters. But as you know the Camry's reliability and reputation keep that from happening.

it is not just reputation... it is combination of all the factors that make it a good family sedan, not just one thing.... from pricing to reliability to easy usage to ergonomics to comfort, etc, etc, etc. Both Camry and Corolla drop sales significantly when customers feel they are not up to par.


I like the interior changes in Fusion facelift... buttons are back.

Interior looks very refined from a design standpoint. Don't know about material quality. They are saying the Aston Martin-esque front will also be more tailored. Again this is not good for the MKZ or maybe just what they need to make the MKZ better
