Lincoln is the premium division of Ford, making more upscale vehicles based on Ford model platforms. There is also plenty of crossover between the two brands when it comes to technology; Lincoln cars feature versions of Sync and MyLincoln Touch. This year, Lincoln is starting to move away from its alphabetic naming conventions by bringing back the Lincoln Continental.
Lincoln has two sedans in the lineup.
Let’s start with the mid-size MKZ luxury sedan. This year, the MKZ has been given a restyled front-end with a more understated appearance. It has a singular front grille with a unique ogee-mesh pattern. The headlights are squared-off and separated from the grille. Four trims are now available: the Premiere 100A, Select 200A, Reserve 300A, and Black Label 800A.
The MKZ has two engine options: a turbocharged 4-cylinder and a twin-turbocharged V-6. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. The V-6/AWD model is tuned to produce 400-hp, which is 50-hp more than its FWD counterpart.
Moving up a size, the all-new Continental is the modern resurrection of its full-size luxury sedan. The Continental is styled similarly to the MKZ as part of Lincoln’s new aesthetic design language. Inside, it features new “Perfect Position Seats” with 30-way adjustability, heating, ventilation, and massage functionality. It is powered by a standard 304-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes standard, while all-wheel drive (AWD) is optional.
Lincoln also builds a full lineup of premium SUVs.
The MKC is its smallest, compact SUV that seats 5 passengers. It has a maximum 53.1 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seat folded down. Powering the MKC is a standard 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. A more powerful 285-hp, turbocharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder is also available. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic.
Next is the mid-size MKX luxury crossover. Last year, the MKX was redesigned with more refined looks. Most noticeably, the dual-kidney grille is sized more proportionally and blends into the headlights. It has a larger smile that is sporty and modern. The body creases are sharp and angular, giving it a lean, aerodynamic look. Inside, the MKX features a push-button gear selector for park, reverse, drive, etc. Premium leatherette seating and active noise control come standard.
The MKX has two engine options: a standard 300-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 and a more fuel-efficient 335-hp, 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6. Both are mated to a 6-speed automatic and standard FWD or optional AWD.
The full-size MKT luxury crossover seats up to 7 passengers across 3 rows. Inside, the center stack features a standard SYNC 3 touch multimedia system. Under the hood reveals a standard 303-hp, 3.7-liter V-6. A more powerful 365-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost is also available. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic and FWD or AWD.
The Navigator and the longer Navigator L are powered by a 380-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a 6-speed automatic and standard RWD or optional 4-wheel drive (4WD). They seat up to 8 passengers.
The MKS sedan has been discontinued.
