2010 Lincoln MKT SUV

2010 Lincoln MKT Review

(3 Stars)  Lord Vader, Your Minivan Is Here

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
While the MKT shares its chassis with the Ford Flex, a different body helps keep it separated from its production line cousin. The MKT is a larger vehicle, one of Lincolns largest in fact.

As with many vehicles in the crowded, mid-size crossover market, the MKT uses its wealth of technology to separate it from the pack. Standard exterior equipment includes a fixed panoramic sunroof, adaptive xenon headlights, Keyless ignition/entry, and rear parking sensor. Inside, you'll find 12 way heated and ventilated power front seats, three zone HVAC. It offers a 8 inch touch screen for audio and climate displays as well as offering a view of the rearview camera. The options list is just as extensive. The ride quality is also often lauded as excellent. The only real downside besides the love it or hate it styling is the rather high pricetag for this model.

The MKT is available in either its base model, or with the ecoboost V-6. The standard model makes 270hp and the ecoboost makes 350 hp. Both models send their power through a 6 speed transmission to 19" wheels for the base model and 20" wheels for the Ecoboost model.
