The LINCOLN MKS offer customers the choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Power comes from a 273-hp 3.7-liter V6 engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission featuring Select-Shift with paddle activation. Optional on the all-wheel drive is a 355-hp 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine; this engine incorporates twin turbochargers and direct fuel injection, resulting in V8 power while maintaining the fuel efficiency of a V6. Standard features include LED tail lamps, premium heated/cooled seats, heated rear seats, HID headlamps, and SYNC hands-free communications and entertainment system. Standard safety features include six airbags, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, brake assist, traction control, stability control, and a post crash alert system. The 2011 LINCOLN MKS carries over unchanged from 2010, with the exception of four new paint colors.
