Lincoln MKS

Lincoln MKS

In 2006, the Lincoln MKS made its first debut as a concept car during the North American Auto Show. It was not until May of 2008 that production of the MKS began and sales started one month after that. The MKS was preceded by three other of Lincoln's new models, the MKZ, the MKT, and the MKX. It is a good vehicle for those looking for a full-size sedan that has style and function, especially those with families.

Model Overview

Ford's D3 platform is what the MKS is based upon, which is also shared by other vehicles including the Ford Taurus. The MKS has the option of being an all-wheel drive, but comes standard as front-wheel drive. The Lincoln MKS contains a 3.7 Liter Duratec V6, which mates well with its automatic transmission featuring six speeds. Drivers can opt for the EcoBoost 3.5 Liter twin-turbo, direct injection V6 engine as another alternative.

The MKS will seat up to five people comfortably. During its original release, the MKS had an MSRP of $38,465, and could have cost consumers upwards of $48,835 if they chose to stock it with all the options. Each Lincoln MKS was built on the production line at Ford's Chicago Assembly plant in the United States. It has a spacious interior that is great for those who travel and need space for luggage, or for those who use their car for business.

The company stands firm that within the Lincoln MKS, there is the largest amount of comfort, convenience, and technologies compared to all others within its class. There are three different equipment packages consumers can choose from when purchasing the MKS: the Navigation Package, the Technology Package, and the Aluminum Applique Package. Each are designed to meet the consumer's specific needs.
