Equipped and optioned identically to its front-wheel-drive (FWD) sibling (the 3.7L), the Taurus-inspired 2011 Lincoln MKS 3.7L AWD five-passenger sedan has the added attraction of full-time all-wheel-drive (AWD) traction and safety. A center-mounted mechanical limited-slip differential provides constant power to all four wheels.

Again like its FWD kin, the 2011 MKS 3.7L AWD is delivered with a standard 3.7-liter V6 and six-speed auto-manual transmission for 273 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Despite variable valve timing, mileage is a somewhat tepid 16/23 mpg.

The flagship 2011 Lincoln MKS 3.5L AWD has the distinction of carrying Ford’s much-ballyhooed EcoBoost 3.5-liter turbocharged V6. This ground-pounder, when matched with the standard six-speed auto-manual transmission, puts out 355 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque and actually betters the 3.7-liter V6, mileage-wise, to the tune of 17/25 mpg.

Standard comfort and safety equipment in the 2011 MKS 3.5L AWD mirrors that of the lesser MKS trims, with the exception being the MKS 3.5 AWD’s standard 19-inch wheels. Furthermore, Active Park Assist, for those whose parallel parking skills may be a bit rusty, is an extra option offered with this top-shelf trim.

Adds to 3.7L:
Enhanced Powertrain: 3.5L 355 hp V6 Engine, AWD
