The powerful and sophisticated twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 offers the power of a naturally aspirated V8 with V6 fuel economy. The sophisticated all-wheel drive system enhances capability in a variety of weather conditions, using an advanced array of internal electromechanical clutches to efficiently distribute torque between front and rear wheels as needed.
The new Lincoln MKT continues to offer luxury utility shoppers Lincoln’s signature design in an inviting three-row configuration with intuitive technologies designed to make customers’ lives easier. MKT buyers can choose between six and seven-passenger models with two different second-row seating configurations. A standard 60/40 split folding rear bench seat features heated outboard seating positions. Power “fold and tumble” second-row bucket or captain’s seats, with heating, cooling and power-assisted lumbar adjustments are available as well.
