2010 Lincoln MKS Overview

Appearance-wise, the 2010 Lincoln MKS five-passenger luxury sedan is relatively unchanged from ’09. Performance-wise, however, there’s a world of difference. The much-ballyhooed twin-turbo, direct-injected, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine will be available for the 2010 MKS AWD trim, at least to start with, giving it more power and better fuel economy than the V8-powered Mustang GT. The base engine for the 2010 MKS remains a 270-hp 3.7-liter V6 that gets 16/23 mpg. Both engines will be managed by the six-speed auto-manual transmission from the 2009 MKS. Steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters are expected to help provide a sportier drive in the 2010 MKS.

Another much-heralded feature available on the 2010 Lincoln MKS will be Active Park Assist. This marvel will, in theory, use sensors to not only find a parking space, but to semi-automatically parallel park the MKS without so much as the most minute ding or scratch.

The 2010 Lincoln MKS's ride and handling are average - quiet, reasonably smooth, with little body lean in corners. It doesn’t, however, quite measure up to the market average for an entry-level luxury sedan.

Standard safety features in the 2010 Lincoln MKS are expected to include four-wheel disc ABS, traction and stability control, an anti-skid system, front side-mounted airbags, and front and rear side curtain airbags.

Appearance, comfort, and convenience features for the 2010 MKS include 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery and trim, rear backup sensors, and the usual power accessories, along with the once-optional SYNC hands-free communication and audio system. Options for the 2010 MKS are expected to include - besides the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 and Active Park Assist - DVD voice-activated navigation, and 19- and 20-inch chrome-clad wheels.


Have Laptop. Will Travel. I'm retired and travelling the country in a 34' motor home. I'm really digging meeting people . . and sometimes their cars . . . getting a sense of what makes this nation tick. The plan is to visit all the national parks in the continental US, then cruise to Alaska to visit Denali, and to Hawaii to check out Haleakala and the Hawaii Volcano's national parks. Anyhow, when I'm not horsing the motor home around the roadways, I'm tooting around in the 2012 Ford Focus that we tow behind, or making runs to Home Depot and various malls with the 2004 F-150 that just won't die.
