About Lincoln MKT

Providing that the 2017 Lincoln MKT luxury SUV’s bulbous proportions, old-style Lincoln winged grille and unique rear styling aren’t turnoffs, you might actually find quite a bit to like in this 7-passenger crossover SUV. There’s plenty of room inside the MKT’s well-appointed cabin, although the 3rd-row seat can be a bit snug for adults. Under the hood Lincoln offers a choice of two V6 powertrains, one of which includes the lauded 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine. All-wheel drive is available and though not a serious threat to true off-road-capable SUVs like the Land Rover Discovery or Lexus GX, this big Lincoln compares well when stacked up against such competitors as the Acura MDX, Infiniti QX60 and Buick Enclave.

"2013 bought new - AWD 3.5L twin turbo very responsive. 6th gear comes in a little late at about 62mph. Fit and quality interior/exterior good except mine had a bad right rear door weatherstrip (mostly cosmetic and very easily fixed.) All electrical from Sirius to power doors, locks, windows, 3rd row seat, lift gate, moon roof. Put on 5000 miles in first three weeks - drove from Houston to Cleveland, via Virginia, down to Biloxi, back to Houston. Averaged 23 mpg. Tested all functions including parallel park. On curvy, mountain rods where 18-wheelers are going slow, the adaptive cruise control radar tends to pick up the slower moving trucks on the curves and to brake accordingly - this is described in the manual - would recommend dialing gap down to one bar or turning off."
