THIIISSSS is a 2016 Lincoln MKT. I've had this vehicle for about 6 months now and feel I can offer a fairly comprehensive review. My model is a 7 passenger EcoBoost with the Elite and Technology packages and 20 inch wheels. First, those wheels - they look great but give you less rubber between you and the road, somewhat defeating the purpose of the 3 suspension modes. It isn't a rough riding vehicle by any means, but the 19 wheels (which are kind of ugly) likely give a better ride. The MKT is very comfortable, the seats are well padded and covered in very nice leather. The power adjustable seats, pedals, and steering wheel guarantee virtually everyone will sit comfortably. I updated the Sync 3 system to the newest version to allow Apple CarPlay functionality which is a must, in my opinion. The Sync system is ok, but feels somewhat outdated. The controls - there are no physical buttons for the heated/cooled seats or heated steering wheel. This isn't a huge deal, but is a minor irritation to always have to cycle through 3 or 4 screens to get to seat/wheel controls. The tri-zone climate control (with rear seat controls) is a nice feature for the family. One minor complaint about the heated steering wheel is that it doesn't heat the top wood grain covered portion. Not a big deal, but heated all over would be better. The adaptive cruise control system works well, however it doesn't work below 12 mph, so keep that in mind. The power up/down third row is phenomenal and gives access to solid cargo room with the seats down. The second row of seating offers very generous leg and head room. Third row access is fairly easy with the one touch button that tumbles the second row seats forward. However, once in the third row you'll find that due to the sloping roof line you won't be able to sit with your hid upright unless you're under about 5' 3", a massive point against the MKT. One of the biggest plusses in favor of the MKT is the power. the twin turbo V6 provides more power than virtually any other vehicle in its class and easily moves the hefty MKT quickly whenever called upon. Handling is good for a vehicle of its size, however maneuverability in tight spots is fairly poor due to the length of this vehicle. Speaking of, if you have a smaller garage, the MKT may not fit. I'm not kidding, it fits in my garage (barely), but doesn't fit in the garages of several friends and family, so take some measurements first. Overall, the 2016 MKT is a great vehicle for the family, although the third row is not as practical as one would hope. You get good technology, comfort, quietness, and power in a polarizing, but in my opinion, beautiful package. And, for better or worse, it doesn't look like every other three row SUV. If you want to stand out a little, have understated power, a comfortable, quiet ride with decent modern tech the MKT is a great option.

This is a great car for American roads. My MKT has every option available. I bought it six months ago with 23,000 miles and have put 10,000 miles on it since (two cross-country trips). My two previous cars were a Jaguar XJR and Genesis G80. The MKT handles nearly as well as the Jaguar (at speed through mountain passes) with nearly the same power, except I have my fat tire bike and golf clubs in the back and my drift boat trailing behind. It's as quiet as the Genesis and has an even better sound system. Driving ten-hour days across the country was a very comfortable pleasure. It's the best long distance car I've ever owned. It tracks beautifully down the road. It will torque-steer to the right under hard acceleration, but it is predictable and easy to correct. No reliability problems at all. If you like the looks (I do), you'll love this car.
