Standard Intelligent AWD uses sensors to constantly monitor traction. It balances torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction—typically before wheelslip can even occur, giving you a more confident ride.
Adaptive cruise control, standard on the MKT Reserve, functions just like traditional cruise control — but with one important difference. When forward sensors detect traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes its set speed. Forward collision warning with brake support can alert you if it senses a possible collision with the car in front of you. A red light flashes to simulate brake lights and provides an audible warning. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and provide full responsiveness when you do apply them.
Active park assist, included in the MKT Reserve’s standard Technology Package, is designed to help make parallel parking a breeze. While driving slowly near parking spots, simply activate this feature and it scans for available spaces. Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance between parked cars. Once a spot is identified, you’re signaled to stop and accept the system’s assistance. All you do is control the shifting, accelerating and braking.
The standard Twin-Turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine provides ample power while managing fuel consumption. The engine produces 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque,* and has an EPA-estimated rating of 15 city/21 hwy/17 combined mpg.
Standard heated and cooled front-row seats and available heated and cooled second-row bucket seats deliver comfort to the driver and passengers.
The available second-row refrigerated console blends seamlessly with the first-row console and offers the luxury of refrigeration anywhere you go. The unit can chill up to seven 12-oz. cans, four half-liter bottles or two 20-oz. bottles to a temperature as low as 41°F, and there is a freeze mode, if desired.
Genuine wood trim adds warmth and character to the MKT. The Charcoal Black interior shown here, comes with rich and dramatic brown swirl walnut, while the Light Dune interior features the intricate patterns of Prussian burl.
The Lincoln MKT has three separate driver memory settings. With the push of a button, side mirrors, seat position, steering wheel and power-adjustable pedals return to their set positions.
The SOS Post-Crash Alert System* activates the horn and emergency flashers in the event of an airbag and/or pretensioner activation. After the system is deployed, you may deactivate it by using your key fob.
It happens on occasion – you come around a curve a bit too fast. That’s why you’ll be glad to know that the Lincoln MKT comes with Curve Control, an enhancement to AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control.* If it detects that you’re entering a curve too quickly, it will apply four-wheel braking, while also employing throttle reduction, to help reduce your speed.
