Model News

The 2015 Lincoln MKS is essentially the same as the 2014 model.

Model Highlights

The Lincoln MKS offers two different engine options: a 3.7L V6, making 304 horsepower and 275 pound-feet, or a 3.5L turbocharged 'EcoBoost' V6 making 365 hp and 350 pound-feet. The base engine uses Ford's Ti-VCT variable cam timing system for smoothness and efficiency and Lincoln promises V8-caliber performance from the EcoBoost engine. All Lincoln MKS models come with a 6-speed automatic transmission--now featuring a mode for full driver control--and while base V6 models can be had with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, all EcoBoost models have all-wheel drive.

Lincoln claims an advanced all-wheel-drive system for the Lincoln MKS. This computer-controlled system can send more torque to the rear wheels as needed, in as little as 16 milliseconds. Torque vectoring control also helps improve stability when accelerating through corners.

The Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) system in the 2015 Lincoln MKS helps provide a worthy compromise between the bouncy, cushy ride of traditional luxury cars and the often overly firm ride of true sport sedans. With real-time damping, the system can change its damping force 20-times per second to react to changes in the road surface. Sport, Normal and Comfort modes let the driver dial up the desired responsiveness. With Lincoln Drive Control, the system adjusts the response of the power steering system, the firmness of the ride, throttle response, shift feel and even the parameters of the electronic stability control system.

To match the added power and improved dynamics of the 2015 Lincoln MKS, Lincoln utilizes a strong 4-wheel, vented braking system and a quicker-ratio steering system, including electric power assist.

The Lincoln MKS has a traditional luxury-car interior, but the instrument panel layout is dominated by MyLincoln Touch, the screen-driven interface--controlled by touch, voice, or 5-way steering-wheel toggled--that serves as the central interface for entertainment, navigation and climate controls. It controls either the base 210-watt audio system, with 10 speakers, or the premium THX II system, which adds HD Radio and has 16 speakers, including a subwoofer. Auxiliary and USB ports are included, as is satellite radio compatibility and SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link services add both live traffic functionality plus easily accessed information.

The Lincoln MKS comes with virtually all the standard equipment expected in a luxury car, as well as some other extras like standard heated-and-cooled power front seats and adjustable pedals. Options include a multi-contour front seat system that aids adjustability, a heated steering wheel and plush "Bridge of Weir" leather. Interior trim materials include Prussian Burl Wood and Brown Swirl Walnut, in natural grain patterns.

Available Active Park Assist will measure a parking space, then steer the Lincoln MKS into the space, while the driver modulates the brakes and accelerator. A new Lane Keeping System and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) are also available, which together help keep the driver within the lane--with a warning chime and nudge of the steering wheel or, a warning lamp. Other active-safety features available in the Lincoln MKS include a collision warning system, adaptive cruise control, auto high-beam headlamps and Ford's MyKey system, which lets parents or others to program restrictions for some drivers.

Value Writeup

The 2015 Lincoln MKS is a full-size luxury sedan that appeals to those who want an extremely well-equipped, comfort-oriented and technology-loaded sedan. With its continuously damping suspension and Drive Control interface--plus a host of active safety features--it sets its sights on the tech prowess of top German sport sedans if not quite in all-out performance, in features and interior appointments.

Considering all the phenomenal tech features packed into the Lincoln MKS, it is priced about $10k less than comparable German sport sedans like that Audi A6, Mercedes-Benz E-Class or BMW 5-Series.

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
