2021 Lincoln Zephyr

The Lincoln MKZ and the aging MKT are the only staying models stuck to the old alphanumeric designations, but it’s only a matter of time before the previous will get a correct name. According to a new report published by Car and Chauffeur, it appears Ford’s high-end brand name wishes to dust off the “Zephyr” name for a future sedan bound to replace the MKZ.

They’re making this assumption based upon a trademark filing from 2016, which was a different one instead of simply being an update of an older trademark. It might be a sign Lincoln has plans to utilize “Zephyr,” and it would make good sense for the MKZ successor to get it considering the last Zephyr– sold just for the 2006MY– was a Ford Fusion-based sedan like the current MKZ. The nameplate is much older than that, with a V12-powered four-door sedan bring this name back in the late 1930s.

The report goes on to point out the name change may come along with a significantly different platform. With the Fusion going in the method of the dodo, the MKZ upon which it’s based might be transformed into a rear-wheel-drive car by utilizing the same platform as the Lincoln Aviator.

It’s all speculation at this moment. However, it goes to reveal Lincoln still thinks in sedans while diversifying its SUV lineup with the launch of the entry-level Corsair currently on display at the New York Auto Show. It follows the larger Aviator revealed towards completion of last year.

However, what about the ancient MKT? Although the Aviator is technically its replacement, the 10-year-old crossover is remaining for a while for fleet buyers to use as funeral hearses and hotel cabs, based on a statement made last September by Robert Parker, Lincoln’s marketing manager, in an interview with Automotive News.
