Lincoln MKT - Consumer Reports

2013-2019
2013 Redesign Year
The 2013 update brought the addition of variable cam timing to the 3.5-liter V6. This bumps horsepower from 262 to 287.
A self-parking system is offered as an option. Overall, MKT rides well, is commendably quiet and second-row legroom is abundant. Though the third-row seat is modest, cargo space is generous. A by-product of the Lincoln's size and soft ride, handling is clumsy.  For the 2016 model year, Sync 3 replaced the much-maligned MyLincoln Touch. The 2019 model year was the MKT's swan song; it was replaced by the 2020 Aviator.

2010-2012
2010 Redesign Year
This big three-row vehicle has a very roomy, plush, and quiet interior, along with many luxury amenities. However, the view out and the driving position are compromised by its styling.
Its third-row seats are best suited for kids. Base models are powered by a 3.7-liter V6. The up-level engine is a turbocharged V6, making it quick, while returning 18 mpg overall. The ride is comfortable, but handling lacks agility, and the MKT is cumbersome at its cornering limits. A wide turning circle hampers maneuverability.
