    Expert Rating

    4.5 (Excellent)
    17 City / 24 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2014 Lincoln MKT OVERVIEW

    Beneath the Lincoln MKT's somewhat controversial exterior styling, you'll find a highly accommodating and luxurious people mover. The interior seats six or seven in a three-row cocoon of supreme comfort. You'll find a choice of two well-regarded V6 engines and available all-wheel drive.

    What's New for 2014

    On the heels of styling tweaks to the 2013 model that included a redesigned grille and fascia, the only changes for 2014 models are new exterior colors and some rearranging of package options.

    Choosing Your Lincoln MKT

    The Lincoln MKT comes loaded with features including leather seating in the first and second rows, tri-zone climate control, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, a rearview camera, and a power tailgate.

    With a power-operated tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and adjustable pedals, it's easy for drivers to find a good fit. Audio entertainment is provided by a 10-speaker AM/FM/CD/aux system controlled via the touch-based Sync system and 8-inch screen.

    The immediate choice for buyers is between two trim levels defined by their engine of choice:


    A naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6 powers the base MKT. With 300 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque, the base engine supplies ample power and fuel economy numbers of 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. It's mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode. All Base models are front-wheel drive.


    The EcoBoost uses a smaller but more powerful twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 with 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. It can hustle the MKT from zero to 60 mph in less than seven seconds. It earns EPA ratings of 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway. All EcoBoost models come with all-wheel drive.

    Although luxuriously outfitted even in base form, an MKT can get even more luxurious with options like a heated steering wheel, refrigerated console, navigation, THX II audio, a dual-screen DVD rear-seat entertainment system, second-row bucket seats, and power-folding third-row seats.

    Safety and driving-oriented options include adaptive cruise control, active park assist, lane-keeping assist, a blind-spot monitoring system, and inflatable seat belts in the second row.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The EcoBoost isn't much more expensive than the Base MKT, so we'll take its performance enhancements even if it does cost us one or two mpg at the gas pump.
