Can't remember which episode exactly but, it was mentioned that they were going to put a stronger Ecoboost engine in the MKZ. I thought it was with Matt VanDyke but, it's a different interview with a Lincoln exec. I'll try to find it and post it.

What engine combo has been the most popular so far with the new MKZ? Also, who has been placing orders from other Brands or is it too early to tell?

sorry dunno, TurboS40, but
I certainly EXPECT it can accommodate ANY Nano-v6EB = upto 400ish HP
and
believe with CD4+3 that it ought to handle the 490hp 3.5gen2 EB


as for a supercharger, don't think so = EB is "the way forward" afaik
+
wondering about EB-Hybrids......

Based on rumors I picked up on GM inside news, the XTS will get this engine with an AWD-option but less power.

Lincoln is the Flagship Brand of the Ford Motor Comapny. There shouldn't be any holding back for Lincoln.

I would rather them not do it at all, than do it half-hearted.
That's what Cadillac started about 12 years ago. There was some stumbling, but seems to be really paying off for them lately. If Lincoln had kept the LS, and refining it, they might be in a better market position today.

That's why I'm hoping the new Mustang platform will spawn a few other vehicles as well.
