Pros

Value Writeup

The LINCOLN MKT is closely related to the boxy Ford Flex but has a completely different, smoother and more carlike profile--along with, of course, more of a traditional luxury-vehicle appearance inside and out. It's one of the roomiest, most comfortable crossover vehicles in its class, and performs well while maintaining a very smooth ride. Meanwhile, with such an extensive array of entertainment and safety features--plus top-notch crash-test ratings--the LINCOLN MKT is one of the best luxury family picks.

It also looks poised to become one of the top vehicles for executive fleets. According to Lincoln, the LINCOLN MKT's higher stance allows easier entry and exit, while all-wheel drive will make it better for all-weather use.


Model Highlights

The 2012 LINCOLN MKT models come with a choice between two different engines: either a front-wheel-drive model, powered by a 268-horsepower, 3.7L V6; or an all-wheel-drive model with Ford's EcoBoost V6, a twin-turbocharged, 3.5L V6 that makes 355 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

In either case, it's hooked up to a 6-speed automatic transmission, and while the EcoBoost version performs significantly better, the base engine is more than adequate. The LINCOLN MKT doesn't drive like a utility vehicle; rather it's more like a heavy station wagon, with a stable, planted feel either on a tight curvy road or the Interstate.

Design-wise, the LINCOLN MKT is a distinctive vehicle, with a large chromed grille, slanted tail, and a beltline that steps up just behind the back door. Inside, the LINCOLN MKT is cavernous and very well-designed for people or cargo. Across the LINCOLN MKT model line, you can get either 6- or 7-passenger layouts--bringing either a 3-person bench or dual captain's chairs in the second row. The latter comes with heating, cooling and power adjustment.

The LINCOLN MKT has been rated an IIHS Top Safety pick, and it comes loaded with safety features, including dual front airbags, front seat-mounted side bags, a Safety Canopy side-curtain system and AdvanceTrac electronic stability control with roll stability control, which aims to help the driver avoid a loss of control that might lead to a rollover.

Standard equipment on all LINCOLN MKT models includes rain-sensing wipers; a rear view camera; Adaptive Headlamps and HID headlights; A SecuriCode keyless entry keypad; and the MyKey programmable vehicle key system. Sync, the hands-free system that allows--through Bluetooth or USB connections--voice control of phones, smartphones and media players, is also included. Options include a DVD entertainment system, Active Park Assist (which automatically measures a parking space and steers into it), and a DVD entertainment system with dual 7-inch screens.

The LINCOLN MKT Elite Package brings a PowerFold third-row bench seat, THX II surround sound, HD radio, the multi-panel Vista Roof, a Blind Spot Information System and voice-activated navigation with Sirius Travel Link, which includes weather forecasts, fuel prices, sports scores, news and movie listings.

The livery-duty Town Car version of the LINCOLN MKT, to go on sale later in the model year, will include a number of passenger-oriented features and upgrades including an extra 110-volt power outlet, an included Wi-Fi hotspot, and a USB port. Rear passengers will get access to audio controls and can adjust the front passenger seat from the second row. To yield even more room the 3-passenger rear seat has been moved rearward 1.5 inches.


Model News

Later in the model year Lincoln will begin offering an Lincoln MKT Town Car to fleets and limo companies. The livery-duty version will be the official replacement for the long-running Lincoln Town Car sedan, which goes out of production this fall.

Summary
Ford Moor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Ford Fusion vehicles without a 3.5L engine and Lincoln MKZ hybrid electric vehicles, 2011 Mercury Milan vehicles, 2011-2012 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with a 3.5L GTDI engine and 2013 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with any available engine. The affected vehicles have electric power steering assist systems that may shut down as a result of a steering motor sensor fault.

Consequence
If the vehicle experiences a loss of power steering assist, extra steering effort will be required at lower speeds, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will check the Power Steering Control Module (PSCM) for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC). If dealers find any loss of steering assist DTCs, the steering gear will be replaced, free of charge. If, no codes are found during the PSCM inspection, the PSCM software will be updated, free of charge. Interim notices were mailed to owners on July 20, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S18.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Rating Dynamic Test Result
No Tip

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
