The 2017 Lincoln MKT offers a distinctly American take on the three-row crossover genre. Offering room for up to seven, the MKT sells in small numbers, with limited availability to the general public, despite being a well-equipped premium model with competitive pricing.

What's New for 2017

The Lincoln MKT adds Apple CarPlay compatibility for 2017. The same cannot be said for Android Auto, however.

Choosing Your Lincoln MKT

The 2017 MKT is a four-door SUV with seating for seven, spread across three rows. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available.

Two engine choices are available. A 3.7-liter V6 is standard and produces 303 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. This model returns an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

A twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter V6 with 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque is the MKT's premium engine. This model makes an EPA-estimated 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Lincoln engineers paired paired both engines with a six-speed automatic transmission.

All models come with adaptive HID headlamps, LED taillights, and aluminum wheels. Genuine wood trim and inflatable second-row outboard safety belts are standard.

Despite its age, the MKT is loaded with cutting-edge, active safety equipment, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with brake support, lane departure warning and lane keep assist, and a blind spot information system with rear-cross traffic alert. Ford's new and much improved Sync3 infotainment system is also standard.

The interior is plush and comfortable, although the third-row seat is best reserved for children. Standard cargo space measures 17.9 cubic feet. With the third-row seat folded, cargo volume increases to 39.6. Maximum cargo space measures 75.9 cubic feet behind the first-row seat.

The 2017 Lincoln MKT is available in two trims: standard (base) and EcoBoost.

Lincoln MKT


Outfitted with the standard engine and front-wheel drive, the base model comes well equipped. Standard equipment includes adaptive headlamps, power heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, rain-sensing wipers, and a power liftgate.

Inside, Lincoln used Bridge of Weir leather on the first two rows. Standard features include wood trim, heated and ventilated front seats, heated outboard second-row seats, three-zone climate control, power adjustable pedals, and manual rear door sunshades. Ambient lighting, an overhead front console, and a 110-volt power outlet are also included.

Lincoln MKT


Choosing the EcoBoost model automatically adds all-wheel drive, Lincoln's drive mode select system, and continuously controlled dampers for a smoother ride.

An Elite Equipment Package is available, and adds a heated steering wheel, a navigation function for the Sync system, a THX-certified audio system, a power-fold third-row seat, and a blind-spot information system.

Shoppers can also exchange the three-person middle bench seat for power and tumble bucket seats, reducing overall capacity to six passengers. Available accessories include a second-row refrigerated console.

CarsDirect Tip

Most shoppers opt for the EcoBoost engine. With all-wheel drive, drive mode select, and an adaptable suspension system automatically included, the top-trim model is the complete package.
