2010 Lincoln MKS Review

Old-fashioned luxury with new EcoBoost and high tech

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Lincoln MKS is a full-size luxury sedan available as the Base Sedan or the new EcoBoost Sedan. With a choice of front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, the Lincoln MKS is equipped with a 3.7-liter V6 engine matched to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control and paddle shifters. However, the all-wheel-drive EcoBoost trim comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that is more powerful than the base engine without compromising fuel consumption.

The Lincoln MKS has a distinctive style, an elegant interior, and plenty of luxury touches. In addition, it offers superb comfort and outstanding cruising features. The MKS has earned great safety ratings and gas mileage ratings in the 16 mpg city / 23 mpg highway range.

New for 2010

For 2010, the Lincoln MKS introduces the EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V-6 engine, equipped with an electric power steering system, which boasts the power of a V-8 engine but the fuel economy of a V-6. Adaptive xenon headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, keyless entry/ignition, paddle shifters, interior ambient lighting, and a power sunshade for the rear window are added as new standard features.

Essentials

Engines: 3.7L V-6, 3.5L turbocharged V-6

On the Outside

The exterior of the Lincoln MKS can be identified by its front split-wing grille, inspired by the classic 1941 Lincoln Continental, but chrome accents and fender badges help to update the look at bit.

From the Inside

High-quality interior materials and high-technology systems, including the SYNC system and a high-resolution navigation screen, characterize the interior of the Lincoln MKS.

Driving Performance

The Lincoln MKS Base Sedan's 3.7-liter V-6 engine generates 273 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, which is really quite adequate.

Standard safety features on the Lincoln MKS includes seatbelt pre-tensioners, a vast array of airbags, adaptive cruise control, a blind-spot warning system, and stability control with gyroscopic sensors.
