Model News

The Lincoln MKT carries over into 2015 unchanged. Models ordered with the Elite package now come with a 6-year subscription to SiriusXM Satellite radio.


Model Highlights

The 2015 Lincoln Lincoln MKT is offered in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive form. Opt for the front-wheel-drive model, the base engine is a 300-horsepower, 3.7L V6, making 275 lb-feet of torque. This engine benefits from Ford's Ti-VCT (variable cam timing) system, for improved torque and efficiency through most of the rev range, and it returns an EPA-rated 17 mpg city, 25 highway. Go with all-wheel drive, and it's the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 which utilizes both turbocharging and direct injection to make 365 horsepower and 350 lb-feet of torque.

In either case, the Lincoln MKT comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission, including a SelectShift full-manual mode and steering-wheel paddle-shifters. The all-wheel drive system sends power only to the front wheels during most driving, yet in as little as 16 milliseconds it can send power as needed to the rear wheels.

A standout handling feature of the Lincoln MKT is Continuously Controlled Damping, a system that employs computer controls and a special damper design to adjust damper force in as little as 11 milliseconds -- for a change in surface, or for a more substantial upheaval like a pothole or railroad tracks. The system also provides more confident handling, firming up when needed and helping moderate body roll.

That system functions hand-in-hand with Lincoln Drive Control, a system that lets the driver choose--through Normal, Comfort or Sport modes--the way in which the steering responds, how sensitive the throttle response is, ride firmness and other aspects. In addition, the steering ratio has been quickened, both to make the Lincoln MKT feel more nimble and match the benefits of the system.

The Lincoln MKT maintains its car-based underpinnings, giving it a drive that is more sedan than SUV. With three rows of seating -- in 6- or 7-passenger configurations -- the Lincoln MKT provides top-notch accommodations for those in the front two rows, along with a third row that's great for kids. Second-row heated-and-cooled seats are available and a long Panoramic Vista Roof brightens the interior for all. Plus, thanks to long rear doors, it's relatively easy to get back to the third row.

MyLincoln Touch is a screen-based interface that can be controlled through touch, voice, or steering-wheel toggles. Its centerpiece is a huge 8-inch display top and center on the dash -- providing a go-to operating center for entertainment, navigation and climate control. The standard audio system is a 210-watt, 8-speaker unit but the optional upgrade is a 700-watt, 14-speaker THX II system. This system adds a USB port, DVD player capability and HD Radio. With the navigation system equipped, SiriusXM Traffic services add live-traffic information.

The Lincoln MKT comes with a vast list of standard features, and it comes equipped better than many other luxury-brand vehicles. Power-adjustable pedals, power front seats, HID headlamps, LED taillights, rain-sensor wipers, fog lamps, remote start, tri-zone climate control, a universal garage-door opener and SecuriCode entry are all included. Options are limited to a Technology Package with more of those active-safety extras like adaptive cruise control and active park assist; a trailer-towing package; the Vista roof; heated-and-cooled second-row seats; and a rear DVD entertainment system, a second-row refrigerator console. Second-row inflatable seatbelts are a new option for 2015.


Value Writeup

The 2015 Lincoln MKT is a 3-row crossover utility vehicle, aimed at those who want a high level of luxury, as well as plenty of active safety and infotainment technology. According to Lincoln, the Lincoln MKT has more standard horsepower than the Audi Q7 and Acura MDX, while returning significantly better mileage than both.

The Lincoln MKT appeals to a wide range of family shoppers, including some who are looking for more of a performance feel, as well as others who are merely looking for a more luxurious minivan substitute, so with a Continuously Controlled Damping and Drive Control systems introduced last year, drivers should be able to simply 'tune in' the attitude they want--Normal, Comfort or Sport.

For those who plan to use all three rows, the Lincoln MKT remains one of the better picks on the market, with generous space for adults in the front two rows and a third row that even adults can access (and be okay with) for a trip across town.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2015 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, and Lincoln MKS vehicles manufactured May 4, 2015, to May 23, 2015, Lincoln MKT vehicles manufactured May 4, 2015, to May 21, 2015, and 2015-2016 Ford Explorer vehicles manufactured May 4, 2015, to May 23, 2015. The affected vehicles have a parking brake that may not fully engage when applied. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 135, "Light Vehicle Brake Systems."

Consequence
If the parking brake does not fully engage and the transmission is left in a gear other than 'Park' while on a slope, the vehicle may roll away, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will test the operation of the parking brake system, and if necessary, replace the parking brake control assembly, free of charge. The recall began on September 4, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15C07.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2015 Lincoln MKT Town Car vehicles equipped with the livery package manufactured February 4, 2015, to June 23, 2015. The vehicles were intended to seat five passengers, but were delivered without the second row seating. Accordingly, the vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 110.

Consequence
The vehicles do not have the seats and restraints that they were intended to have. Unrestrained or improperly restrained occupants are at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Dealers will inspect and install second row seating if it is missing. The recall began on July 28, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15C08.
