What You Will Like

The 2016 Lincoln MKT is a 3-row crossover utility vehicle aimed at those who want a high level of luxury, as well as plenty of active safety and infotainment technology. According to Lincoln, the MKT has more standard horsepower than the Audi Q7 and Acura MDX, while returning significantly better mileage than both.

The MKT appeals to a variety of family shoppers, including some who are looking for more of a performance feel, as well as others who are merely looking for a more luxurious minivan substitute, so with a Continuously Controlled Damping and Drive Control systems introduced last year, drivers should be able to simply "tune in" the attitude they want -- Normal, Comfort or Sport.

For those who plan to use all three rows, the MKT remains one of the better picks on the market, with generous space for adults in the front two rows and a third row that even adults can access (and be okay with) for a trip across town.

What's New For 2016

Introduction

The Lincoln MKT does not look like the crossover SUVs that have been rolling out of the design studios of every major and many minor automaker. The Lincoln MKT is a large crossover wagon with a polarizing design. Its upswept front end and its bulbous rear draws widely divergent opinions about its visual presence.

Whether that’s good or bad depends upon the point of view. Sales success for a design some love and some hate is often greater than that for a bland design that neither pleases nor offends anyone.

Introduced for the 2010 model year, the Lincoln MKT hails from a different era in the history of Ford Motor Company’s luxury brand. The MKT was a trendsetter when it first appeared, and even today the design looks audaciously daring. Though not a look that appeals to everyone’s taste, it is one that can easily be recognized a block away. Developing such a vehicle helped demonstrate the value of a big crossover wagon at a time when most were midsize or smaller. It also showed that the Lincoln name shouldn’t be taken for granted or defined too rigorously.

Updating for 2013 slimmed the bright vertical-bar grille and headlight configuration. Sales have remained sluggish, however, suggesting that not every shopper for a model in this league has taken a close look. There are no significant changes for the 2016 model year.

While the exterior is polarizing, far less arguable is this three-row crossover’s vast interior space, as well as its comfortable accommodations for a large group.

Brawny powertrains round out the picture, led by a particularly strong twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that whips up 365 horsepower. The standard engine is a naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6.

All-wheel drive is available, front-wheel drive is standard.

Buyers can choose either a six-passenger MKT with bucket seats in the first two rows and a two-seat bench at the rear, or a seven-passenger version with a middle-row bench. Seats in the front two rows are uncommonly supportive, and occupants get plenty of space all around. Not unlike the seats in Volvo vehicles, those in the MKT blend basic firmness with almost pillow-like comfort, ideal for a long day’s drive without minimal stress.

Access to the third row isn’t as pleasing.

A new Sync 3 infotainment interface, which is significantly easier to learn and use replaces the previous MyLincoln Touch system.

Lineup

The 2016 Lincoln MKT ($43,370) comes standard with a 3.7-liter V6 and front-wheel drive, plus leather upholstery, seven-passenger seating, Sync 3 interface, heated/ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, wood interior trim, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a rearview camera. Also standard are a fixed-panel panoramic sunroof, keyless entry pad, remote start, power liftgate, and rear parking sensors. The 10-speaker audio system includes satellite radio.

MKT 3.5 AWD EcoBoost Twin Turbo ($45,365) has all-wheel drive and the turbocharged 3.5-liter engine. Heated/cooled, powered second-row seats are optional, for six-passenger capacity. An Elite Package for the EcoBoost model adds a power-folding third-row seat, HD radio, THX II-certified audio, heated steering wheel, and voice-activated navigation

Safety features include a rearview camera, blind-spot alert, and adaptive headlights. Curtain airbags extend through all three rows. Safety options include collision warning, adaptive cruise control, active park assist, lane-keeping assist, and the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS). An available MyKey system lets parents program vehicle settings to restrain teenage drivers. Inflatable seatbelts for outboard second-row occupants also are available.

Walkaround

Even though its design is so distinctive, and its underpinnings so contemporary, a few hints of Lincoln’s more glorious years can be discerned. That would be the Sixties, when Continental convertible sedans held court. Appearances aside, the 2016 Lincoln MKT has a foundation that’s kin, surprisingly, to the defiantly boxy Ford Flex.

Observers who look with disfavor upon the MKT seem to be especially bothered by its tail, which definitely has a heavy look. It is reminiscent of Lincoln Continentals from the Sixties. Featuring a slim ribbon of taillights, it can also convey the impression of being somehow not quite finished. A few critics have even suggested that the rear end vaguely resembles a hearse, while the front end, viewed through fuzzy eyes, is reminiscent of the cowcatcher on an old steam locomotive.

Interior

When Lincoln freshened the MKT for 2013, special attention was paid to interior materials. What had been a veritable sea of metallic and matte-metallic surfaces turned into a cabin with a darker theme. That’s when the dashboard added the MyLincoln Touch infotainment interface, right in the center. At the same time, real knobs and switches were replaced by capacitive-touch controls for climate and audio settings. Fortunately, Sync 3 has now edged aside the troublesome MyLincoln Touch.

A broad range of adjustments for seat and steering-wheel positions helps provide a satisfying driving position. Second-row occupants enjoy plentiful legroom, while wide-opening doors make it easy to climb aboard. Despite power-folding second-row seats, reaching the third is a battle, especially for larger adults.

Cargo space approximates that of a large sedan. Folding seats down gives access to nearly 76 cubic feet of space, with a cargo floor that’s practically flat.

Driving Impressions

Performance with the 3.7-liter V6 engine, generating 303 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque, is sufficiently strong if not stimulating. The base model comes only with front-wheel drive.

All-wheel drive is standard with the optional EcoBoost 3.5-liter turbocharged V6. Developing 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet, that’s the logical choice for drivers who like to extract the most vigorous responses from a large vehicle. Acceleration is surprisingly lusty, yet smooth, and the EcoBoost emits a slightly sporty sound. More important, it mates neatly with the 6-speed automatic transmission, which includes paddle shifters.

Ride and handling are well-balanced and appealing. In fact, the MKT is among the best large crossover vehicles for confident travel down twisting rural byways. Because of its body length, switchback turns can be challenging. On the other hand, the highly capable suspension can cope with plenty of activity on harsher pavement. EcoBoost models incorporate a three-mode, continuously controlled damping suspension, which responds rapidly to variable pavement conditions.

Fuel economy, as expected, lags behind the MKT’s merits, EPA-rated at 16/24 mpg City/Highway with the base engine and 15/21 mpg in EcoBoost guise.

Summary

Particularly suitable as executive transportation, like the Town Car of old, the MKT can also serve as a spacious, notably luxurious wagon for the family. Most buyers have been selecting the EcoBoost engine, which adds all-wheel drive as well as a better-composed suspension.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
