Benefits of Driving a 2013 Lincoln MKS Sedan

The 2013 Lincoln MKS is a full-size luxury sedan that appeals to those who want an extremely well-equipped, comfort-oriented and technology-loaded sedan. Before its 2013 redesign it was already a formidable rival to the likes of the Volvo S80, Lexus ES 350 and Acura TL, but with its new 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.

What's new for 2013?

The Lincoln MKS has been extensively refreshed for 2013, with an updated exterior design, more engine power, improved fuel economy, a quieter interior, a new instrument panel and newly available accident avoidance systems. Additionally, the Lincoln MKS gets much-improved ride-and-handling sophistication, thanks to a new Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) system and Lincoln Drive Control interface, with modes that let the driver fine-tune aspects like ride firmness, steering feel and throttle response.

Model Strengths

  • Softer exterior
  • more luxury features
  • accident avoidance technology
  • strong EcoBoost V6
  • available all-wheel drive
  • plush interior
  • Drive Control allows a choice between luxury and sport

Model Review

The Lincoln MKS is now offered with two different engines: a 3.7L V6, making 300 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.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
