2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid

We've told you about the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid awaiting an on-sale date later this year. Now, Ford's confirming that its ritzy cousin to the Ford Fusion Hybrid will hit the same 41-mpg city fuel economy rating.

The MKZ Hybrid's EPA fuel economy will be 41/36 mpg when it goes on sale later this year, which makes it the most gas-miserly luxury sedan on sale in America. Ford says the MKZ Hybrid will top the Lexus HS 250h by a good 6 mpg.

Ford says the MKZ Hybrid will also seat an extra passenger; the Lexus is rated as a four-passenger vehicle.

Like the Fusion Hybrid, the MKZ Hybrid combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine running a lean combustion cycle, and teams it to electric batteries and motors, for a power equivalence of 191 horsepower. The MKZ Hybrid can run on battery alone up to 47 mph, and the gauges train drivers to see when they're sipping fuel--and when they're not.

Other standard features on the MKZ Hybrid will include leather seats; power front seats with heating and ventilation; wood trim; parking sensors; MyKey, which allows drivers to set speed limits and warnings; and memory functions for the seating, along with Ford's unique keyless entry system.
