2010 Lincoln MKS Sedan

2010 Lincoln MKS Review

(3 Stars)  Old-school luxury, modern technology

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Lincoln MKS has replaced the ubiquitous Town Car in the Ford/Lincoln lineup. It's a full size sedan, even though it rides on a Taurus chassis. It's not quite the canyon carver of some of its' competition, softly sprung, with standard front wheel drive. Rather, the MKS is most at home during long drives along the freeway. This is where the MKS comes into it's own. With plenty of amenities, long distance cruising ability, and an overall high level of comfort, it's perfectly suited to that task.

Its power comes from a 3.7 V-6 making 273 Hp, but most buyers will opt for the Twin Turbo 3.5 liter Ecoboost V-6, which makes a solid 350 hp and 350 ft-lbs. torque. The optional all wheel drive will find itself useful in the colder climates. Interestingly, the Ecoboost with all wheel drive, makes virtually the same fuel economy as the lower powered, front wheel drive model, with the exception that it requires Premium fuel. Regardless of the engine, power is transmitted through a 6-speed automatic transmission to standard 18 wheels. Both 19 and 20" rims are available as options on this model.
