when the Ford Five Hundred and Mercury Montego came out in 2005, mags
said a Lincoln version was to follow.
3 years later, I'm now seeing tv commercials for it..........went to
Lincoln.com and there's no mention of it.
But there are several independent sites that have details and pricing.
was interested until I noticed that the engine requires premium
gas.......good job guys.
That is true, but the Lincoln he was referencing was the 2008 MKZ not the
2009 MKS, that is just coming to market. My 2008 MKZ has the 3.5 and it
uses 87 octane as did my previous Zephyr that had the 3.0 V

The MKS uses a 3.7L version of the 3.5L from the new Taurus/Sable.
I had no problems finding the official site:

As for premium, it's not as 'expensive' as it used to be. At $2.00/gal,
the typical $0.20 extra was a 10% increase. Now at $4.00/gal, it's only
a 5% increase.

Mike, read the whole thread. I said that Ford didn't even come out with
2009 Ford trucks yet. And you responded that you had a 2009 Ford. I
asked if it were a Ford car or truck.
Get a clue man.
You don't need to be an asshole.

Wow! Ford didn't even come out with its 2009
trucks yet, and it has a 2205 car out already.
Ooooh!! Ooooh!! Ooooh!! Caught Mike in
a mistake again!! It's so satisfying when
one's life work is rewarded.
Now, that's looking to the future.
I wonder if any of the manufacture who are currently selling vehicles in the
US, would be HAPPY to be selling a high profit one that is still selling at
the rate of 500,000 a year as annual sales fall from 16,000,000 to
14,500,000? Wanna bet Toyota would love to selling ONLY 500,000 Tondras
