2014 Lincoln MKS What's new for 2014? 
2014 Lincoln MKS

Changes to the 2014 Lincoln MKS are minor, the most notable of which is the addition of a standard rear-view camera. An aggressive new pricing strategy lowers the price of a 2014 model by about $2,000 compared to the 2013 car.

The 2013 Lincoln MKS gets a major overhaul, with new styling both in and out, a more powerful 3.7-liter V6 engine and a host of new electronic driver aids. These include Lincoln Drive Control, which changes the way the car drives and handles depending on transmission setting, and a continuously controlled damping system that constantly adapts to varying road conditions.

For 2010, Lincoln offers the twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 in the MKS. Good for 355 horsepower, the EcoBoost engine delivers V8-like power with V6 fuel economy. New standard features include MyKey programmable speed and radio volume system, a power rear sunshade, rain sensing wipers, the Forward Sensing System, adaptive HID head lamps and intelligent access with push button start. New options include Active Park Assist for one-touch parallel parking and a number of appearance and convenience packages.

About Lincoln MKS

A thorough overhaul last year brought a new look to the somewhat stoic MKS, but whether it will be enough to compete with sleeker designs from Cadillac, Lexus and even Hyundai is yet to be seen. Because it is based on the Taurus platform, there are still plenty of thinly veiled crossover parts from the Ford sedan, and no V8 engine or rear drive platform. However, for those not bothered by such trivialities, the MKS for 2014 has plenty to offer. From its standard continually-adaptive suspension and available all-wheel drive (AWD), to its 365-horsepower EcoBoost V6 engine and myriad of cool electronic interfaces such as climate controls that operate at the swipe of a finger, the MKS is luxury done Lincoln-style.

"I needed a full size car that was good looking with some performance and loaded with features. I got that with the Lincoln MKS with Ecoboost. The feature that I like the most and find not available on other cars is the ability to remotely open and close the windows. It is so handy during the summer storm season. The handling is very good with the AWD. The GPS/radio works very well and sincs well with my IPhone playing the tunes or pandora via bluetooth through a very good set of speakers. The minuses are the trunk entry is a bit tight and I would like a bit better MPG. Otherwise is nearly perfect."

"Considered Acura, BMW, Cadillac, and Infinity. The MKS twin-turbo is much faster than all the others and feels incredibly tight, even more so than the BMW 5 series. It's a great deal and a blast to drive!"

"Was in market for Taurus SHO; MKS is same car but with better interior. Rides like a champ. Not a corner carver but competent nevertheless."
