    We're getting closer...

    So, here we are. I located that on my local dealer's website:

    Congrats, LincolnFanFl! You should post some pics of it when it arrives and do a mini review.

    Just to make sure: That's not my car - Unfortunately, I won't be getting one until MY15. It was just the first time I saw an actual window-sticker.

    However, I'll certainly have a look and perhaps a test-drive once the first ones reach my local dealer. It seems they ordered quite a few of them.

    Lots of dealers are openly advertising the specifics of models they have on order and are expecting on lots within the next week or two. Just search on Google for 2013 MKZ pages from the last week and lots of dealer advertising on arriving models pops up.

    I'm still somewhat amazed that the models may arrive before any major press push, which I think it a good thing. That's unusual for Detroit makers, who have historically criticized for being way out in front on promotion, even years before the models arrive (like the current gen Camaro).

    That's true. This was just the first time I've seen an official window-sticker of the new MKZ. I really don't know for sure when they were published for the first time.

    Seems that Lincoln is hoping for positive word of mouth from people who have seen and driven this car in person. Not a bad idea considering that the brand has not the best reputation for whatever reason. Some brands can virtually sell everything based on their label - other brands are struggling due to their label. That's the difference between Apple and Lincoln..

    Really? I assumed it was yours since it's in silver, has a black interior, and a moonroof which means a power rear sunshade.
    This could easily be yours.

    Hahaha...

    Actually, this car lacks said power-sunshade.

    No AWD, no Aluminum trim and only a "Reserve" model. I think I deserve better..

    I forgot that it's not standard! How can Lincoln call themselves a luxury brand when something small like a power rear sunshade isn't standard?

    Hopefully, the bespoke program will be ready whenever you get ready to buy.

    Well, let's be fair - I think in that regards, Lincoln is right on track with other (European) luxury brands. At BMW or Mercedes, virtually everything is optional.

    Yeah, that would be nice and some compensation for the long wait..

    If it's optional on a Ford, it should be standard on a Lincoln.
