This large sedan, based on the Ford Taurus, has a 3.7-liter V6 that provides good power but isn't particularly refined. Top-level models use a direct-injection, turbocharged V6 rather than a V8. Front- and all-wheel drive are available. The ride is comfortable but not always settled. Handling is secure but lacks agility.

New 2013 Lincoln MKS Ecoboost by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/23/2012. Trim: 2013 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I owned a well equipment 2010 MKS Ecoboost for several years. I just took delivery on the new 2013 MKS Ecoboost and was impressed by the changes to ride quality, materials, transmission and controls. The new car is loaded with all options and thus far it rocks. I could have easily bought the high end models of BMW, AUDI, MERCEDES, LEXUS but why spend an extra 20K-40K when the new MKS gives so much of the same options and quality and it runs on regular gas not to mention that it is very fast!
Cons: The grille is still... well.. a Lincoln grille and I guess the design team should have spent some time out of the box on this particular design element. I hope Ford creates better Lincoln dealerships with the same refinements as the other makes that I mentioned. Sharing the same showrrom and service with Fords is like going for a fast food dinner in a tuxedo!
Overall review: I don't work for Ford or am I in the car business. I do own (not lease) a number of new cars and typical buy a new car or two every year. While I can get bored easily, the MKS is a keeper for the reasons that I mentioned above. Hopefully the high rating on the Taurus SHO will carry thru to Lincoln. My advice is to drive all cars and make your own decision. At the end of the day the only opinion that matters is the person who will be driving the car. Buying a car because you can afford it or because it appears to be trendy is a waste of time and money. Buy something that serves your needs.
