no MKZ is not the flagship, that would be MKS if anything, the large saloon. @golfball clearly you didnt hear me out, this was not about what does MKC mean, but what MKC stands for to Lincoln. They need that cash flow to come streaming in to finance future models. The only way Lincoln can become truely competitive again is if they begin funding their own operations.
Sharing costs with Ford i feel is actually detrimental. When the big company wants to cut costs they simply plug and play Ford characteristics into lincolns. Now thats not inherently a bad thing but it does take a certain luster away from Lincoln products..
