2017 Lincoln MKZ

When you’re shopping in the luxury sedan segment, chances are you want a model that blends opulence with ultimate performance—and finding a vehicle that maximizes efficiency and space wouldn’t hurt, either. The 2017 Jaguar XF checks off all of these boxes and more, especially as compared with the 2017 Lincoln MKZ. See how the Jaguar luxury model excels over the competition.

Performance and MPG

Both the 2017 Jaguar XF and the 2017 Lincoln MKZ offer two engine choices, but either way, the Jaguar model bests its competition:

  • 2017 Jaguar XF: You’ll have a supercharged 3.0L V6 at your disposal with the XF, which generates 380 hp on the S trim at the top of the lineup. There’s also a turbodiesel 2.0L 4-cylinder that makes a confident 318 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2017 Lincoln MKZ: The Lincoln model’s comparable powertrains hardly stand up to those of the XF. It starts with a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder that musters just 275 lb-ft of torque, and there’s also a turbocharged 3.0L V6 generating only 350 hp.

There’s also fuel economy to consider. The MKZ’s V6 machine allows for only 21 mpg combined city/highway, whereas the XF accomplishes 24 mpg combined city/highway with its V6, according to EPA estimates. Meanwhile, the turbodiesel engine under the hood of the Jaguar vehicle wins outright, with up to an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city and 42 mpg highway.

Cargo Space

For a customizable cabin and cavernous cargo space, you’ll be better served by the 2017 Jaguar XF. That’s because it boasts 19.1 cubic feet in its trunk, and you’ll also have 40/20/40-split folding rear seats to arrange your cabin for the optimal passenger/cargo setup. The 2017 Lincoln MKZ, on the other hand, has a trunk that measures only 15.4 cubic feet, and the backseat bench can only be split 60/40, limiting the ways you can arrange passengers and cargo.
