The 2019 Lincoln MKT's main flaw is simply that it's past its expiration date. You see, both the MKT and the boxier Ford Flex on which it's based haven't seen a serious update for the better part of a decade, and the two are starting to show their age around the edges.
It's the little things you notice, details that aren't quite up to par with those of the latest luxury models. The interior is comfortable and has a quality feel, but it just doesn't look as posh as what you'll find in more recently redesigned rivals. The all-black trim on the dash is a good example of a material that looks past its prime.
The MKT, which is offered in a six- or a seven-passenger seating configuration, has some practical issues as well. While leg- and headroom in the first two rows of seats are generous, the lack of both makes the third row a place for preteens only. Besides cutting into headroom, that sloping rear roofline also limits cargo-carrying capacity somewhat, especially compared to the more accommodating boxy rear end of the Ford Flex.
Among the MKT's strongest draws is its level of standard equipment, a long list that includes such desirable features as 19-inch alloy wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, automatic wipers, leather upholstery with heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear outboard seats, keyless entry and ignition, the Sync 3 system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, power-folding second- and third-row seats, a navigation system, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
The Reserve trim level includes all of the above as well as 20-inch wheels, an automated parking system, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and lane keeping assist. Stand-alone options in all MKT models include heated and cooled second-row captain's chairs (reducing capacity from seven to six passengers), a second-row refrigerator console between the captain's chairs, and a tow package.
Taking into account the age of the 2019 Lincoln MKT, you'd be well advised to compare it carefully against fresher luxury crossovers before making up your mind. Let Edmunds help you find the right luxury crossover for your needs.
