Driven To Give at Planet Lincoln in Spring, TX

Randall Reed’s Planet Lincoln believes in supporting causes that can make a big difference in someone’s life. Our Driven To Give Event Saturday, August 31st, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Chick-Fil-A is benefiting the Living Water Campaign for Haiti.

Imagine believing you would die before your community could drink clean water—burdened by an entire life of suffering. But just when you’ve given up hope, clean water changes your entire reality. Your community receives a safe well, sanitation and hygiene support to keep the water clean, and training to develop local leaders who will keep the solutions sustainable. The goal of the Living Water Campaign is to develop and build sustainable infrastructure, and that begins on a community level.

You’re invited to test drive a new Lincoln and help those in need when you do. For each test drive, Lincoln Motor Company will donate $20 and Randall Reed’s Planet Lincoln will match it. Everyone who participates will also receive a Chick-fil-A sandwich. Help make a difference and support the Living Water project at Planet Lincoln in Spring, TX.

New vehicles are an expensive investment and with the trend of cars getting more expensive, certified pre-owned vehicles are a great option.

You can get a 6 year 100,000 mile warranty that includes road side assistance, engine, interior, electrical systems, etc.. To get a 6 year 100,000 mile warranty protection is impressive for a used car.

Lincoln Houston

2013 Lincoln MKZ

At Randall Reed’s Planet Lincoln we know there are several items to consider when purchasing your next luxury vehicle. That is why we compared the class leading competitors in the mid-size luxury vehicle class including the 2013 Lincoln MKZ, 2013 Lexus ES 350, and 2013 Cadillac ATS.These vehicles compete for the top spot in engine performance, interior, technology, and safety.

Check out our comparison video below…

Engine Performance

The Lincoln MKZ has two available engines including the 3.7L V-6 engine producing 300 Horsepower and 278 foot-pounds of torque.The Lexus ES-350, comes in second, with 268 horsepower and 248 foot-pounds of torque. Coming in last place was the Cadillac ATS with 202 horsepower and 190 foot-pounds of torque.

Interior Features

The MKZ has more front leg, shoulder, and hip room than both of its competitors. U.S. News & World Report says “The Cadillac ATS is a comfortable ride but has cramped second row seats.”Car reviewers also commented that  the Lexus ES-350 interior was spacious, it had fewer standard features than the 2012 model.

Technology

When you purchase a luxury vehicle you expect to get the latest and greatest technology.The MKZ has available My Lincoln Touch that allows you to stream music, audible turn-by-turn directions, change climate control, and more. U.S. News & World Report writes that the Lexus’ infotainment system Enform on the ES-350 is too clunky.The Cadillac ATS has the available Cue system, however there is no navigation available for this model.

Safety

So how do they stack up in safety?  According to the Insurance Institute The 2013 Lincoln is a TOP Safety Pick for midsize luxury vehicles. The 2013 Lexus ES-350 also made the list but not in the plus category and the Cadillac ATS wasn’t tested by the IIHS.

A final quote from Autoweek “If the Lexus ES is the target, we’d guess drivers will prefer the MKZ by a good margin.
