Chris Haywood 5pts I agree. However, the MKS is not based on the Fusion, it shares a platform with the Taurus. The MKZ is based on the Fusion. Lincoln needs a Rear-Wheel-Drive car with a V-8 engine to be even remotely competitive with the likes of Cadillac, Lexus, Infiniti, BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. As Lincoln stands now with nothing but sideways engine, wrong-wheel-drive junk, they will never even come close to going up against the big dogs.
