Choosing Eco-Friendly Lincoln Cars

So, you want a new Lincoln? Oakville drivers that want to make an eco-friendly choice have several options available as far as new and used Lincoln cars go. For example, you could buy a Lincoln that uses EcoBoost technology, opt for a hybrid model, or consider a used Lincoln.

A Look at EcoBoost Technology

What is EcoBoost? Currently offered on Lincoln MKS and MKT models, EcoBoost provides the car with better performance, more power, and reduced C02 emissions. According to Lincoln Canada, it blends twin-turbo performance with direct injection for low-end torque without the turbo lag. EcoBoost is also more fuel efficient thanks to its direct injection system which delivers fuel in a fine mist directly into each cylinder. In short, Lincoln cars equipped with EcoBoost have the horsepower of cars with bigger motors and the fuel efficiency of cars with smaller motors.

A Look at Hybrid Technology

Prefer to drive a hybrid model? Currently, one hybrid is available, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. What makes a hybrid a hybrid? The combination of a gasoline engine and an electric motor. The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid uses a regenerative braking system which captures and stores the energy generated during braking. When driving at low speeds or for short distances, the car is typically powered by the electric motor. As you brake, that energy is captured and stored for later use. If you need to drive at a faster speed or as the electricity runs low, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid's gasoline powered engine kicks in. Since the car often uses the electric motor exclusively, the hybrid model is a fuel efficient choice. According to Lincoln Canada, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid achieves a fuel efficiency rating of 4.6L/100 km city.

To squeeze even more fuel efficiency out of the car, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid also features a "SmartGauge" that helps you learn to drive more efficiently by providing you with visual cues (leaves and apple blossoms) that represent your driving efficiency.

Can Buying a Used Lincoln Be an Eco-Friendly Choice?

With only a few Lincoln cars offered with EcoBoost or Hybrid technology, some used Lincoln Oakville buyers are making eco-friendly choices by focusing on the used car market. Buying a used Lincoln Navigator or used Ford cars can be part of the "reduce, reuse, recycle" philosophy. By buying a used car, you are part of the recycling movement. In addition, many used Lincoln and Ford cars feature fuel efficient engines, hybrid engines, or low emission features. Buying a used model with eco-friendly features is an excellent choice.
