The Lincoln version of the Ford Flex has a very roomy interior and offers many luxury amenities, but visibility is compromised. Base models are powered by a 3.7-liter V6, while the uplevel engine is a turbocharged V6. The ride is comfortable but stiffer than that of the Flex, and handling lacks agility. The MKT is cumbersome at its cornering limits.

Do Not Miss This One! by The Raminator, Palm Springs on 06/19/2012. Trim: 2013 Lincoln MKT 3.5L with EcoBoost AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I have combed the professional reviews of the MKT - both before and after buying it, and find that I get irritated by the niggling comments made by the reviewers. I have driven BMW 5 series, Lexus RX series, Jeep Grand Cherokees and a Porsche Cayenne Turbo. What comes closest to the MKT is either the Porsche or the BMW sportwagon. The sheer joy of driving in either is equalled if not exceeded by the driving experience of the MKT. It is a big car, there is no doubt about that, but it handles like a BMW and accelerates like a Porsche or a BMW. It is a sheer delight to drive. The technology and the Sync system work as advertised. I think this car is at the top of the list.
Cons: gas mileage and the fact that if you like to accelerate at all you can quickly be in red light territory
Overall review: I think this is a great car if you're in the market for a BIG hauler. I know it isn't for everyone, but I also think it is way underrated, and in the large crossover segment of the market, for sheer fun to drive, as well as luxury and features is has been sorely underrated. This is a great car.
