The Lincoln MKT 2010 made the world debut in Detroit on the North American International Auto Show. This will very well be the 6th unit in the lineup of Lincoln, slotting between MKX and Navigator.
Ford Flex cousin auto will have a choice of 2 engines: a V6 3.7-liter delivering 268 hp - 6,500 RPM plus 267 ft.-lb. torque - 4,250 RPM; plus a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 making 355 hp - 5,700 RPM, 350 ft.-lb. torque - 3,500 RPM. The EcoBoost engine (upgraded) should provide some similar economy of fuel as the basic 3.7-liter (non-turbo) engine. Both engines are fitted to a 6-speed SelectShift auto-transmission. That 3.5 liter variant is being now offered basic having AWD system; and for the 3.7 variant the AWD is yes... optional.
The MKT has design touches known via the Lincoln family, like the split waterfall grille, large greenhouse area and single piece rear light. The curves from the design are like they all came from exactly the same pen, giving us the amazingly beautiful MKS unit.
“We’re growing Lincoln’s product portfolio with a full-size crossover that offers more of everything luxury buyers want today – including more variety,” affirmed Mark Fields, president of The Americas at Ford. “Lincoln MKT will help us further build momentum for Lincoln, which has been outpacing its luxury competitors and growing market share in recent months.”
“The Lincoln MKT strikes the optimum balance between capable and driver-engaging handling, while simultaneously delivering a smooth quiet ride in all three rows,” said Ron Heiser - Chief Engineer. “It combines a luxury touring experience with an agile ride and available Class III towing strength, as well.”
“The new Lincoln MKT brings together a compelling package of active and passive safety features that work to help protect its passengers,” affirmed Stephen Kozak, the safety engineering chief.
“The Lincoln MKT is all about delivering more for customers – more choice, more premium features and technologies and even more luxury for people in all three rows,” said Fields.
