For 2013, Lincoln has cut out the matte-metallics and given the interior an understated makeover, also subbing in the MyLincoln Touch infotainment system and a new reconfigurable gauge cluster. Barring the capacitive-slider controls that this system brings, it's MyLincoln Touch and all the included luxury and tech features that make the MKS so tempting.
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.
Standard equipment includes ventilated front seats; heated front and rear seats; adaptive HID headlamps; rear parking sensors; automatic climate control; and an exterior keypad entry system. With a Premium Package, you get a heated steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals, navigation, premium audio, a power rear sunshade, and blind-spot and cross traffic alert systems; while the Elite Package adds Active Park Assist, Lane Keeping, premium wood trim, and a few other extras. Altogether, you can load an EcoBoost MKS just past the $50k mark--but then you get quite the collection of luxury and tech features, at what might also buy a rather basic German sport sedan.
