Lincoln MKS Overview

This large, Ford Taurus-based sedan is not very competitive. A turbo V6 with AWD is offered in lieu of a V8. It has plenty of power, with little loss in fuel economy. However, the base engine lacks refinement. The suspension has three modes, none of which is ideal. Comfort mode results in some floating on undulations, but is otherwise mostly comfortable, whereas Sport mode is just stiff. Handling, while secure, lacks agility. The interior is well-finished, but the driving position and foot-well are narrow. A small opening limits the usefulness of the trunk, and a high rear deck limits visibility. The MyLincoln Touch system is distracting. Reliability has dropped to below average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
