Black Label updated on Lincoln's site

Just pointing it out for those curious on new Black Label interior designs. Can view the MKZ's Vineyard and Chalet interiors!

Also got my VIN number for my own BL Vineyard MKZ. It's on the way!


Vineyard: http://www.lincoln.com/blacklabel/vineyard/


Chalet: http://www.lincoln.com/blacklabel/chalet/

Throughbred while used before, is new for the MKZ.

Re: Black Label updated on Lincoln's site

I will sincerely miss the Indulgence theme and hope they eventually bring it back. But Chalet and Vineyard are absolutely gorgeous as well.

Also, looks like they'll start adding a "Black Label" badge as well:


My biggest gripe about building out the Lincolns is that you can't choose any exterior paint. I understand they're trying to simplify things, but if I want the Chalet theme with the new Burgundy exterior available on the regular MKZ, I should get it!

^ I agree Indulgence was probably my favorite for the Z

The red interior looks a lot darker from the shots we saw earlier. Interesting. Wonder if its a camera trick or if that was pre-production.

Yeah, paint and wheel choices I feel should be completely universal especially if you are willing to factory reserve an order. Chroma Cabernet Red is a deeper richer tone of Burgundy Velet but understandable of wanting other colors. I'm lucky Diamond Black Metallic is universal as it was the exterior paint I wanted.

Perhaps customers can express that more strongly to them for future models!

these are actually the first real photos/pix of Vineyard afaik

...not sure I wouldn't de-badge that new add-on -- really like the subtly of just blackening one Letter

Vineyard...I think I have a new favorite I love the richness of the colors and how the different materials work together.

Re: Black Label updated on Lincoln's site

Then there is Chalet. Really like the contrasting colors on the upper and lower dash area, and all the detail work in the seats. The metal center stack really pops. Is it just me or is there a nice bit of a retro thing going on with the new center stack dials and switches.

Funny that you mention the retro thing because when I first saw this I immediately thought about the 2006 LS interior.

Re: Black Label updated on Lincoln's site

^ notice a while back

&
here's a review (supposed to be on AutoGuide too but it doesn't load for me)

First Drive: 2017 Lincoln MKZ
driving.ca

By Derek McNaughton
9 hours ago

Lincoln's revamped MKZ gets a new look inside and out to go with the new fire in its belly
...for 2017, the Lincoln MKZ eschews the drama outside for a calm new face replete with optional LED headlamps to go with some new fire in its belly. Plus, an upgraded interior brings new driving aids and safety features. It’s almost as if the yawns of the last MKZ have floated away.

That’s not to say Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz need to immediately circle the wagons, having already entrenched such deep levels of luxury. But Lincoln is revealing with its revamped MKZ that it’s not merely intent to watch the heavy hitters in the premium midsize sedan segment, but to be part of the game as well...

... Lincoln has nailed the quiet part. Flatten the throttle, and precious little engine noise leaks into the cabin, thanks in part to active noise control and copious insulation. On the highway, even at high speed, there’s not much more than some wind walloping the windscreen. It’s relaxing and can belie the speed at which the car is travelling, especially with “active motion” seats providing a rolling massage for the driver and front passenger...

...Unfortunately, no 3.0-litre models were available on our drive across Nova Scotia.

But here’s the thing: As much as I craved to sample the powerhouse V6, the MKZ’s standard engine — a carryover but retuned 2.0L turbo — behaved so well and spooled out so much fun that few will go pining for more. Lag from the four-cylinder is negligible thanks to the twin-scroll turbo and the torque curve is so broad there’s good power at every step — 275 lb.-ft. as early as 3,000 rpm. At times, it felt just like a V6... ...all the way to 100 km/h there’s a delightful symphony of fire going on under that sculpted hood. It’s surprisingly smooth and averaged about 9.0L/100 kilometres under some heavy feet...
