About Lincoln MKT

The 2018 Lincoln MKT still boasts the same odd proportions, overwrought Lincoln winged grille, and peculiar rear-end styling that have proved unappealing to the general public. Yet behind this Lincoln's styling turnoffs is a vehicle that actually offers some advantages in the luxury-crossover-SUV space. It can seat seven passengers comfortably, and there's generous cargo room behind the snug 3rd-row seats. You can order the MKT with the much praised 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine. Unlike the Land Rover Discovery or Lexus GX, the 2018 MKT is not meant to be an off-roader, its available all-wheel drive geared more toward foul-weather situations. Instead, think of this big Lincoln as a competitor to luxury SUVs like the Acura MDX, Infiniti QX60 and Buick Enclave.

"I just rec'd my 2010 MKT in Candy apple red with the Ecoboost engine. Goes and handles better than any other vehicle I've owned in my 45 years of driving including an Audi and 2 navigators. Everywhere I go it gets looks and complements. Lincoln has finally fugured it out."

"Drives like a dream and has features and comforts way beyond the German and especially Japanese counterparts for alot less money. You'd be nuts to buy without a test drive of the MKT first."
