What You Will Like

The 2017 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.

Introduction

In a world of similar-looking crossover vehicles, the Lincoln MKT stands apart, courtesy of its controversial appearance. A large, three-row crossover SUV that seats six or seven depending on configuration, the design of the MKT was inspired by the now-defunct Town Car.

Part of Lincoln’s lineup since 2010, the MKT continues into the 2017 model year with little change.

The MKT might look strange from the rear, but it’s spacious and comfortable, capable of providing luxury travel for a family group (or placed into livery service).

All-wheel drive and front-wheel drive are available. With a choice of two V6 engines, the MKT is a stronger performer than one might assume.

The standard engine is a 3.7-liter V6 with front-wheel drive. The 3.7-liter engine makes 303 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque, working with a 6-speed automatic transmission. It gets an EPA-rated 16/24 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined.

An optional 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6 comes with all-wheel drive, a 6-speed automatic, and an upgraded suspension with continuous damping control. The EcoBoost V6 develops 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet, with paddle shifters at the steering wheel that can control the transmission. It gets an EPA-estimated 15/21 mpg City/Highway, or 17 mpg Combined.

MKT comes in one trim level, abundantly equipped with leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, 10-speaker audio, a power tilt/telescopic steering column, remote start, and adjustable pedals. SYNC 3 infotainment includes an 8.0-inch screen. Heated and cooled front seats are 12-way power-adjustable. High-intensity-discharge headlights incorporate automatic high-beams.

Safety equipment includes a rearview camera and rear parking assistance. A number of active-safety features are available at extra cost, including forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and active parking assistance. Lincoln offers a MyKey system, which can let parents restrict the on-road behavior of teenage drivers. A seatbelt airbag system also is available for outboard occupants in the second row.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave MKT Good ratings in each completed test. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave a four-star score for rollover avoidance (a calculated figure).

Lineup

The 2017 Lincoln MKT 3.7 ($43,530) has the 3.7-liter V6 engine and front-wheel drive. Standard equipment includes leather upholstery, automatic climate control (three zones), fixed-panel panoramic sunroof, second-row sunshades, ambient cabin lighting, keyless start, foglamps, power liftgate, rear spoiler, and 19-inch alloy wheels. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

MKT 3.5 AWD ($49,025) substitutes all-wheel drive and the more powerful EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 engine. An Elite Package for the EcoBoost model includes a power-folding third-row seat, HD radio, a THX II-certified audio system, heated steering wheel, and voice-activated navigation. A Technology Package (which requires the Elite Package) adds adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation, active park assist, and active lane control. You can also specify a second-row refrigerator console, rear-seat entertainment package, 20-inch wheels, and a towing package.

Walkaround

From the rear, it’s easy to spot an MKT, which flaunts a bulbous, heavy-looking tail end.

Up front, squinting your eyes might reveal a hint of the cowcatcher on an antique steam locomotive. Several design elements are reminiscent of Lincoln’s lavish, stretched-out sedans from the 1960s.

Even though seven years have passed since the MKT’s debut, its styling stills seems audacious. Beneath the surface, on the other hand, lies a foundation based upon the strictly boxy Ford Flex crossover model.

Interior

Peek inside an MKT and you might experience a sense of darkness, but supremely supportive seats await. Two seating configurations are available: seven-passenger, with a bench in the second row; or six-passenger, which substitutes a pair of bucket-style captain’s chairs in that row. Both versions include a two-place bench in the third row.

Passengers in either the front or second row can expect remarkable support, as well as open space in all directions. Front seats, in particular, promise a pleasant experience on long Interstate journeys. Even though those seats feel as soft as pillows, that gentleness conceals a substantial level of firmness within the cushion structure. A broad range of adjustments helps the occupant find an ideal driving position.

Rear doors open wide, and adults in the second row can expect abundant leg space. Getting into the third row, on the other hand, presents quite a challenge, at least for grown-ups.

Lincoln’s SYNC3 infotainment system dominates the center of the instrument panel, where capacitive-touch controls substitute for traditional switches and knobs. A configurable gauge cluster ahead of the driver displays a variety of data, including navigation details.

Cargo volume is about equivalent to the volume of a big sedan’s trunk. Folding down the second-row seats creates a load floor that’s nearly flat, while providing about 76 cubic feet of space, a bit small for a vehicle in this category.

Driving Impressions

With the EcoBoost V6 underhood, power delivery is smooth and eager, even emitting a slightly sporty engine sound. Though not as potent as the EcoBoost, the base 3.7-liter V6 is stronger than might be expected.

Ride and handling capabilities are appealing, creating a nicely controlled road experience, even when the driver turns off the Interstate and heads down some rural two-lane roads. With its impressively capable suspension complementing the muscular engine, an MKT can cope with considerable harshness, as found on any sort of imperfect pavement surface.

Still, the MKT is undeniably a large and long vehicle. That means certain corners, urban or otherwise, are sure to be a bit too tight for comfort. In this area, the EcoBoost model may be a wiser choice, simply because it includes three-mode damping control for the suspension. When used effectively, the suspension can react swiftly as road-surface conditions change.

No one is likely to expect great fuel economy from a vehicle with the MKT’s dimensions and weight. With the base 3.7-liter V6, the MKT is EPA-rated at 16/24 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined. Picking the EcoBoost engine with all-wheel drive drops the EPA’s estimate to 15/21 mpg City/Highway, or 17 mpg Combined.

Summary

Even though its heritage dates back to an early era of luxury motoring, the MKT comes with quite a collection of contemporary features. This big, versatile crossover is loaded with technology and capable of surprisingly stirring performance. Sure, it looks like an odd duck; but look past the profile, and MKT is a capable contender in the luxury crossover league.

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.
