Wow, that top one is especially bad. They completely changed the side profile of the car so it hardly even looks like a MKZ anymore.

I realize Lincoln has managed to lower the average age of their buyers significantly in recent years, but they're still well above industry average. While I agree with everybody's shock at just how bad these cars look, the reality is there is still a large enough customer base at many Lincoln dealers to make such things justifiable. Lincoln barely moves 2000 MKZs per month, do you really want their dealers to turn some of them away just to avoid giving them what they want?

Besides, isn't Lincoln all about bespoke product?

If they want it done they can go to a custom shop but NOT at a Lincoln dealer.

I know, right? I mean with everything Lincoln is doing to try to be an industry leader in terms of customer relations and they should just tell people with money they want to spend in a Lincoln dealer to pound sand, because they have bad taste. LMAO
