2017 Lincoln MKT
Posted on June 22, 2017
I saw a 2017 Lincoln MKT for the first time in the flesh the other day and I was surprised that I hadn’t seen one earlier. Featuring EcoBoost technology and a futuristic design, this Lincoln has a lot going for it but doesn’t seem to get the attention or plaudits it deserves.
The 2017 Lincoln MKT is a midsize luxury cruiser that has three rows of seats, lots of features and technology and a very unique design. It stands out from the crowd of other crossover marques for all the right reasons.
2017 Lincoln MKT design
The design of the 2017 Lincoln MKT is definitely Lincoln. While not as accomplished as the Continental, the MKT flows smoothly from one end to the other. The signature Lincoln split grille is up front that flows effortlessly into angled headlights. A sculpted front end and front fenders offer more interest and turn into a nice waistline that traces below the windows all the way down the side.
A raked windshield flows across a slightly rounded roofline into a nice rear end with single light bar running across the entire width of the car.
On the inside, luxury is everywhere. From the quality soft touch materials, soft leather interior, supportive seats, modern well-designed dashboard and overall feel of quality. Considering the number of features, the dashboard is surprisingly uncluttered. The benefit of having a third row cannot be overstated either.
2017 Lincoln MKT engines
The base model 2017 Lincoln MKT has a 3.7-litre V6 engine that produces 303 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. There is also a newer 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine that produces 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Both offer a lot of power that is delivered smoothly and steadily throughout the rev range.
Both engines use a six speed automatic transmission to send power to the rear wheels.
Safety features are plentiful with the 2017 Lincoln MKT. They can include rearview camera, six airbags, rear park assist, Ford’s MyKey system, active parking assistance, lane-keep assist, forward collision warnings, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, adaptive headlamps and a seatbelt airbag system.
Non-safety features of the 2017 Lincoln MKT can include climate control, Ford Sync 3 with 8 inch touchscreen, premium audio, keyless entry and ignition, power front seats, adjustable controls and pedals, ambient lighting, power liftgate, automatic lighting, panoramic sunroof and a whole list of other features. One thing about Lincoln is that they are always feature packed!
