2013 Lincoln MKT Review

Reviewed by Automotive on

Vehicle Overview

Based on the Ford Flex, the 2013 Lincoln MKT brings the same responsive V-6 engine, quiet interior, and enough tech to make your teenager think you're cool. That all sounds good, right? Well, there's a problem, and it can easily be seen when you look at a Ford Flex. The Flex contains all of these same features, but costs $15,000 less, and you get the reputation of the Blue Oval, instead of an automaker currently on a spiritual journey to find itself again. With all that said, the 2013 Lincoln MKT now makes 300 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This combo is good for 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. If you opt for the EcoBoost engine instead, this 3.5-liter V-6 is rated at 355 horsepower, and is hooked to a six-speed automatic transmission. The EPA estimates this drivetrain configuration is rated at 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. All-wheel drive is standard when you opt for the EcoBoost engine.

The navigation and infotainment system Ford (Lincoln's parent company) uses is rebranded as MyLincoln Touch and is a new addition to the 2013 Lincoln MKT. Other new features for the 2013 Lincoln MKT include lane departure warning, adaptive suspension with the EcoBoost engine, rear seat belts that inflate, and a heated steering wheel. Perhaps the most obvious changes to the 2013 Lincoln MKT have to be the redesigned front-end and grille.

New for 2013

There's a lot of new features added to the 2013 Lincoln MKT like the redesigned seats, steering wheel, and instrument cluster. The non-EcoBoost V-6 engine also sees a bump in power, up 32 to 300 horsepower.
