ABS and ESC standard. Side and head protection air bags standard.
This three-row SUV is based on the Ford Flex, with a similarly roomy interior and a more stylized shape. 2019 models are equipped with a standard 3.5-liter turbo V6 engine, six-speed automatic, and all-wheel drive. The ride is comfortable but stiffer than that of the Flex, and the MKT is cumbersome at its cornering limits. The interior is very roomy, plush, and quiet. But visibility and the driving position are compromised, and the third-row seats are best suited for kids. A wide turning circle and overall length hamper maneuverability. The 2019 model year is the MKT's swan song; it will be replaced by the 2020 Aviator, which goes on sale this summer.
