Yeah, I'm very quick when it comes to new info..

So I guess we will see detailed information in about a month or so. I wasn't aware that it usually takes that long because I was under the impression that Lincoln would basically tell their potential customers what they would get when placing an order. On the other hand, it could also be that demand will be high enough already - even without that info.

yup - that's what they do
except
you can't place a real order yet

the OrderBook opening & OrderGuide coming out & Job1 are pretty much simultaneous

I didn't know that orders couldn't be placed yet. I just recall several articles stating "dealers taking orders" and have seen several order-guides online. That's where I discovered the available Aluminum-trim (which is not mentioned at all on Lincoln's homepage) and the sad fact that pano-roof and rear-sunshade couldn't be combined.......sooo I was under the impression that dealers would already be accepting orders.

But in the end, it's only a matter of a few weeks until production starts and I really don't know why they don't show more of the MKZ's interior and features.

dealers can take a customer's money for a "pre-order" but that doesn't really mean anything afaik, except to lock-in the customer emotionally...

This is the one I posted about a month ago in the "2013 Lincoln MkZ Officially Priced"-thread:

http://www.lotpro.com/cars/2013/lincoln/mkz/options/

Here are some additional configurators:

http://www.automobilemag.com/am/2013...s_options.html
http://buyersguide.caranddriver.com/...price#features

I haven't seen any .pdf yet, but based on the several sources I found online, options (including option-codes and pricing) have already been published. It's interesting that these configurators are more detailed than what Lincoln has on their own website.

You're welcome, 2b2!

I also thought they would just copy the info from the configurator - but the Aluminium-Trim option tells me that they must have a different source because they aren't mentioned on the Lincoln-configurator. Same applies to the specific order-codes (XXX) some of them show.

Hey Y'all!
I'm still looking for the MY2013 MKX, MKZ or Navigator Order Guides.
Anyone have a heads up on when those should be out?
Thanks!

Did you mean 2014? If not, you can go to Lincoln.com to build and price the model(s) you want.

The order guides are already out. I'm not the one who posts them on the site, though.
