Lincoln MKS Overview

This large, Ford Taurus-based sedan is outdated, cramped for its size, and not very competitive. The base nonturbo 3.7-liter V6 engine lacks refinement. An optional turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 is more pleasant and more powerful, with little sacrifice in fuel economy. It's the only engine available with AWD. The ride lacks the plushness expected of a luxury sedan. 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 reduces visibility. The MyLincoln Touch system is distracting. Reliability has been below average.
