2011 Lincoln MKZ hybrid
The 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid costs $34,330 — the same as the standard MKZ. That is important because "there is somebody in the marketplace saying you don't have to pay more for a hybrid," said James Bell, executive market analyst with Kelley Blue Book.
The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is rated at 41 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. Opt for the standard, front-wheel-drive MKZ, and the mileage estimate is 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
