Discover Your Passions With The Lincoln Motor Company
This week Lincoln Motor Company pulled out the red carpet for several Influential Bloggers here in Atlanta. We were all invited to a private lunch at the chic Optimist-ATL which was closed exclusively for Lincoln’s Discover Your Passions Event. We were greeted by the amazing Juanita Davis, Director or Public Relations and representative from Lincoln that included but not limited to: LaKara, PR Account Executive; Rob Rosenbach, Marketing Manager of Lincoln MKZ; Solomon Song, Exterior Design Manager of MKZ and Tom Ozog, Chief Program Engineer of MKZ.
The afternoon started with both formal introductions with the amazing Lincoln Team and informal greeting amongst the Atlanta Influencers in attendance. As we entered the dining area we were greeted with tantalizing food that can only be described as deliciously amazing.
As the afternoon progressed we were educated on the all new 2017 Lincoln MKZ by both Rob and Solomon. Rob guided us through the process they undergo to ensure that their marketing is spot on for each vehicle that they create under the MKZ/ Black Label Brand.
What was so intriguing during our intimate lunch with Lincoln was the manner in which each representative displayed their love for their contributions towards creating the perfect Luxury vehicle. As Solomon took the floor you could see the excitement and dedication that he puts into each MKZ before it hits the assembly line and the life that he personally puts into each design vision that he creates.
Solomon created an individual design of the vehicle on their signature napkins for every influencer un attendance. And when I say design I literally mean that he freestyle drew a unique one for us all. It was quite EPIC! Take a look at the one presented to me:
Did I mention that this totally cool design started off with the two arrows above the image? A long and short arrow can turn into awesomeness.
Just when we thought that our amazing date with Lincoln was coming to an end we were each assigned a MKZ according to our brand. I was assigned the 2017 Midnight Sapphire Blue Lincoln MKZ Reserve HEV AWD which was categorized as the “Fashion Experience”. When I say “Fashion Experience” that’s the experience that Lincoln chose for me to experience for the latter portion of my day.
Let me start by saying she was indeed A BEAUTY from the exterior to the interior. This particular model came with the following Luxury highlights:
- 2.0 Atkinson-Cycle I-4 Hybrid Engine
- DOHC, four valves per cylinder, independent variable camshaft timing
- Horse power: 2.0 liter I-4 Hybrid
- Torque: 20. liter I-4 Hybrid
- Electric Motor Permanent magnet AC synchronous motor Power / 88kW
- 1.4 kWh lithium ion High Voltage Battery
- Cappuccino Leather Interior
Keep in mind that everything about the MKZ is a step above the rest. The redesigned grille makes this vehicle show off a fresh styling statement above the rest with its Lincoln Mesh, flanked by clean, modern LED headlamps for both form and function. You can make a statement with their unique body hugging Ebony-leather trimmed multicontour front seats, carbon fiber accents on the steering wheel, instrument panel and doors plus aluminum-topped race-inspired pedals showcase that the MKZ has the soul of a sports vehicle – and the finesse of a luxury sedan.
The Revel® by Harman listening experience allows you to experience music the way it was meant to be enjoyed. Their specialized listening modes will transport you in the “Audience” or right up “On Stage.” The amazing Revel® Waveguides seamlessly blend the output of tweeter and midrange speakers for a natural listening experience.
The next stop was the Atlier Shops nestled in the heart of Buckhead, my final destination for my “Fashion Experience”. Atlier Shops is a one of a kind boutique showcasing the talents of known and aspiring artist, designers and trendsetter. We immediately greeted by Middleman Fresh who gave an exclusive insider on his amazing journey as a Celebrity Designer. He has designed thousands of celebrities in his upscale boutique. We had the opportunity to tour his luxury boutique which ties right into Lincoln’s Luxury Vehicles. Who says that Luxury can’t meet Luxury? It just happened!
