The new Lincoln MKT Concept revealed

The new Lincoln MKT Concept, as described by Peter Horbury was built to represent a long-distance cruiser with enough amenities to keep four urban adults comfortable and isolated from the world around them. The MTK was largely inspired by the MKZ-inspired cues, especially the krill grille and sharp crease in the hood.

The elements that are completely new and draw your eyes upon are quite few: the Lincoln emblem embedded behind the front wheels that strafes off into a character line, the chunky C-pillar and the steep slope of the hatch. Power is generated by a Ford's EcoBoost 3.5-liter turbocharged and direct-injected V6, producing 415 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. MKT carries some of the exterior's swoop inside, along with the unfortunate addition of Bedazzled sill plates and door handles.

In comparison with the MKX Concept, the MKT might seem quite out of fashion and antiquated. The MKT Concept can not be considered the best concept Lincoln had, but for sure it is a successful combination of power and cruising capabilities.
