Ford today unleashed its new hybrid system on the 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, which includes a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that pumps out a combined output of 191 horsepower. The new 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is expected to be most fuel-efficient luxury sedan in America. Small hybrid powertrain is theme of this year for fuel economy cars.

The 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid uses Ford’s second-generation hybrid technology – the 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle I-4 hybrid engine, named one of Ward’s 2010 “10 Best Engines.” It will be Lincoln’s first hybrid model to deliver a staggering 41 miles per gallon in the city. On pure electric alone, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid can reach steady speeds of up to 47 mph. Compared with Lexus HS 250h, which delivers 35 mpg in the city with top speed of 25 mph in pure electric mode.
