2014 Lincoln MKS Overview
- Updated styling and mechanical improvements in 2013
- All-wheel drive is available
- Adaptive suspension offers three driving modes
Returning after an extensive update last year, the flagship 2014 Lincoln MKS offers a sterling combination of technology and luxury.
Updates from last year included big changes to the styling of the MKS; everything in the front was basically replaced and the new look now incorporates the sedan into the rest of the Lincoln lineup. The large split-wing front grille leads the way. 19-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust pipes, and fog lights all come standard with larger 20-inch wheels and a power moonroof optional.
Under the hood there are two V-6 engine options, each offering more than enough power. The base engine is a 304-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 while those who are seeking more performance can upgrade to a 365-hp, twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. Front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters are standard. Befitting a large luxury sedan, all-wheel drive is also available. The suspension is adaptive; drivers can select between three different modes depending on mood and road conditions.
Inside, the MKS opts for a technology-rich environment that uses the latest creations coming out of Dearborn. Instead of physical control in the center console, there are touch-sensitive buttons that are part of the standard MyLincoln Touch interface. Lincoln says that usability and processing improvements have made the system easier to use than ever before, a welcome change. Automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, and SYNC multimedia with voice commands comes standard. A navigation system and massaging seats are also available as options.
Standard safety features include six airbags, antilock brakes, a rearview camera, and electronic stability control. There are also several driver aids available, including lane departure warning and a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alerts.
