Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

With the EcoBoost V6 underhood, power delivery is smooth and eager, even emitting a slightly sporty engine sound. Though not as potent as the EcoBoost, the base 3.7-liter V6 is stronger than might be expected.

Ride and handling capabilities are appealing, creating a nicely controlled road experience, even when the driver turns off the Interstate and heads down some rural two-lane roads. With its impressively capable suspension complementing the muscular engine, an Lincoln MKT can cope with considerable harshness, as found on any sort of imperfect pavement surface.

Still, the Lincoln MKT is undeniably a large and long vehicle. That means certain corners, urban or otherwise, are sure to be a bit too tight for comfort. In this area, the EcoBoost model may be a wiser choice, simply because it includes three-mode damping control for the suspension. When used effectively, the suspension can react swiftly as road-surface conditions change.

No one is likely to expect great fuel economy from a vehicle with the Lincoln MKT’s dimensions and weight. With the base 3.7-liter V6, the Lincoln MKT is EPA-rated at 16/24 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined. Picking the EcoBoost engine with all-wheel drive drops the EPA’s estimate to 15/21 mpg City/Highway, or 17 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

From the rear, it’s easy to spot an Lincoln MKT, which flaunts a bulbous, heavy-looking tail end.

Up front, squinting your eyes might reveal a hint of the cowcatcher on an antique steam locomotive. Several design elements are reminiscent of Lincoln’s lavish, stretched-out sedans from the 1960s.

Even though seven years have passed since the Lincoln MKT’s debut, its styling stills seems audacious. Beneath the surface, on the other hand, lies a foundation based upon the strictly boxy Ford Flex crossover model.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Peek inside an Lincoln MKT and you might experience a sense of darkness, but supremely supportive seats await. Two seating configurations are available: seven-passenger, with a bench in the second row; or six-passenger, which substitutes a pair of bucket-style captain’s chairs in that row. Both versions include a two-place bench in the third row.

Passengers in either the front or second row can expect remarkable support, as well as open space in all directions. Front seats, in particular, promise a pleasant experience on long Interstate journeys. Even though those seats feel as soft as pillows, that gentleness conceals a substantial level of firmness within the cushion structure. A broad range of adjustments helps the occupant find an ideal driving position.

Rear doors open wide, and adults in the second row can expect abundant leg space. Getting into the third row, on the other hand, presents quite a challenge, at least for grown-ups.

Lincoln’s SYNC3 infotainment system dominates the center of the instrument panel, where capacitive-touch controls substitute for traditional switches and knobs. A configurable gauge cluster ahead of the driver displays a variety of data, including navigation details.

Cargo volume is about equivalent to the volume of a big sedan’s trunk. Folding down the second-row seats creates a load floor that’s nearly flat, while providing about 76 cubic feet of space, a bit small for a vehicle in this category.


New Car Test Drive

Even though its heritage dates back to an early era of luxury motoring, the Lincoln MKT comes with quite a collection of contemporary features. This big, versatile crossover is loaded with technology and capable of surprisingly stirring performance. Sure, it looks like an odd duck; but look past the profile, and Lincoln MKT is a capable contender in the luxury crossover league.
