The full-sized, Ford Taurus-based Lincoln MKS is unchanged for 2016 with the exception of the new Sync3 infotainment system replacing the maligned MyLincoln Touch. The same two engines are available, a 304-hp 3.7L V6 and the upgrade 365-hp 3.5L turbocharged EcoBoost V6. Both are paired with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic.
The base model comes with a power tilt/telescopic steering column with memory, forward and reverse parking sensors, leather-wrapped steering wheel, ambient lighting, perforated leather heated and cooled front seats, dual-zone climate control, intelligent access with push-button start, remote start system, rain-sensing wipers, fog Lights, LED taillights 19-inch aluminum wheels and a rear view camera.
The MKS is available with options like blind spot information system with cross-traffic alert, power-adjustable pedals with memory, a nifty power rear sunshade and navigation. Heated rear seats and steering wheel are also available. A technology package is an option on both engines that adds adaptive cruise with collision warning and braking, lane guidance, and active park assist.
The Ecoboost package comes with 20-inch alloys, the heated rear seats and wheel, and most of the options above. The only other option of note on both models is the $2,200 vista roof sunroof.
The MKS starts at $46,900 ($55,900 for the EcoBoost), and can be optioned up to $62,950 if you tick all the boxes. The Lincoln MKS gets 14.2 L/100 km city, 9.8 L/100 km highway for the 3.7L V6 and 14.7/9.8 for the 3.5L EcoBoost.
While not in the same league as German luxury sedans like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series, the Lincoln MKS still offers a long list of luxury options for a fraction of the cost and plenty of passenger and cargo space for those looking for value and roominess above prestige in their large luxury sedan.
