Lincoln MKZ Could Be Replaced With All-New Zephyr RWD Sedan

Fresh from revealing the Corsair in New York as the replacement for the MKC, the Lincoln Motor Company could replace the MKZ with the Zephyr in 2021. As opposed to the current generation and the Continental, the CD6 vehicle architecture would allow rear- and all-wheel drive.
Car & Driver found a trademark of the Zephyr from 2016, filed anew instead of being renewed from earlier trademarks. The last time Lincoln used this name was in 2005, then switched to MKZ two years later. According to the motoring publication, “Lincoln may show a concept version of the Zephyr at some point in 2020.”
As you’re well aware, there’s no solid proof the Zephyr will come back. As a matter of fact, the Black Label has been discontinued for the 2019 model year and the MKZ is one of the two “value destroyers” in the lineup. The other one is the slow-selling Continental.
