Lincoln MKZ concept surfaces in Detroit

The North American International Auto Show is going right now in Detroit bringing with it the first glimpses at new car models and concept vehicles that may make it to showrooms in the future. Lincoln showed off its new MKZ concept in Detroit, and the car doesn't look much like the concepts you would expect. In fact, the MKZ Concept car looks like a refreshed version of the existing car and completely showroom ready to my eyes.

The car will hit dealers later this year. It has a more refined version of the split-wing grill that was introduced in 1938 on the Lincoln-Zephyr. The car has a roofline that is supposed to be a move away from the traditional sedan style. It also has a panoramic glass sunroof that spans from the windshield to the top of the backlight and is integrated into the sedans superstructure.

That is cool, but a similar glass roof on Ford Mustangs lets in an insane amount of heat in warm climates. Inside the car is room for four people. The transmission has a push button gear selector, and a LCD screen in front of the driver measures 10.1-inches and runs MyLincoln Touch. The concept also has an 8-inch center LCD touchscreen.
