2013 Lincoln MKS
2013 Lincoln MKS

New For 2013

Significant mechanical upgrades give the MKS more power, better fuel economy, and a much more composed ride over a variety of road surfaces. The Sync system is upgraded to include operator assist and in-car Wi-Fi hot-spot capability for passengers. A revised interior offers new color combinations and higher-quality materials.

Overview

Lincoln has been floundering without a true flagship for years. Although the 2013 MKS still uses an aging platform, there are a number of mechanical changes that make it more competitive. Lincoln Drive Control offers three driver-selectable modes—Comfort, Normal, and Sport—affecting the steering, suspension, throttle, transmission, and active noise control. The biggest difference in the three modes comes from the adaptive dampers that noticeably change ride quality with each setting. Lincoln isn’t offering any new engines for 2013, but the standard 3.7-liter V-6 now offers 304 hp and up to a 2-mpg improvement over the 2012 EPA highway rating. Braking upgrades give the MKS much larger rotors front and rear, as well as better brake cooling, which should reduce brake fade during aggressive driving. Lincoln didn’t ignore the design of the MKS in order to make the mechanical changes. The grille, the hood, the front fenders, and the front and rear fascias are all-new for 2013, but they don’t give the car a significant visual change. In other words, it’ll look different from a 2012 model if you park next to one, but we wouldn’t go so far as to call it beautiful on its own.

Safety

ABS; front, side, and side curtain air bags; and traction and stability control are standard. Blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, parallel-parking assistance, programmable MyKey, lane-keep assist, collision warning, and adaptive headlamps are optional.

You'll like:

  • Much better handling
  • More powerful

You won't like:

  • Still not attractive
  • MyLincoln Touch has a steep learning curve

2013 Chevrolet Spark Front Three Quarter
The Big Three American automakers have been on a roll lately, releasing a slew of great new products. However, Consumer Reports suggests the latest sedans from Dodge, Lincoln, Cadillac, and Chevrolet may not be so great after all. The shopping guide announced today it will not recommend the 2013 Dodge Dart, 2013 Lincoln MKS, 2013 Cadillac XTS, and 2013 Chevrolet Spark after testing the four cars.

With the departure, finally, of the Town Car, the vehicle that has defined Lincoln for years, Ford's luxury brand is now in the process of building a new identity. It won't be that of a European-style luxury carmaker, as Ford won't devote the necessary resources to develop a rear-wheel-drive chassis. Instead, Lincoln will continue to adapt front-wheel-drive/all-wheel-drive Ford platforms. Other than styling -- which also is in flux, at least until the arrival of the new MKZ -- Lincoln is relying on technology to give it the premium imprimatur the brand too often has lacked.
2013 Ford Taurus SHO Performance Package Front Three Quarter
Add three more cars to the list of five-star NCAP winners: the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has just bestowed the 2013 Ford Taurus, Explorer, and Lincoln MKS with a five-star overall crash rating. In NHTSA's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), all three cars earned an overall vehicle score of five stars. The score factors in frontal and side-impact testing with the vehicle’s ability to resist rolling over. They are the only Ford and Lincoln products to achieve the top rating at this point in time. It's not too surprising that all three vehicles earned the five-star rating – after all, they’re all built on the same D3 platform. Along with sharing platforms and powertrains, the Explorer, Taurus, and MKS also share a number of safety equipment that the Ford believes helped them earn a five-star rating. For 2013, Ford redesigned the passenger airbag and restraint systems in all three cars, and added a passenger-side knee airbag on the Explorer. All Tauruses, Explorers, and MKS models come standard with dual-stage driver and front passenger airbags, side impact airbags for front-seat passengers, and side curtain airbags for all rows of seating. Electronic stability control is standard on the Taurus and MKS; traction control with roll stability control is standard on the Explorer. Additional safety equipment like forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, and rear inflatable seatbelts (Explorer only) are also available as options. The 2013 Ford Taurus, Explorer, and Lincoln MKS are all on sale now. Pricing starts at $27,395 for the Taurus, $29,695 for the Explorer, and $43,685 for the MKS. (All prices include destination charges.) Source: Ford

Ford is getting serious about reinventing its floundering luxury brand. For the first time since the 1970s, Lincoln has its own physical space in the Blue Oval corporate offices. To head up that dedicated design studio, the company recently poached a respected designer from Cadillac. And that new hire, Max Wolff, is just one of more than 200 Ford Motor Company employees now devoted to Lincoln.

Lincoln has unveiled a thorough refresh of its two large passenger car models, the 2013 MKT crossover and 2013 MKS sedan, at the 2011 LA auto show. The new Lincoln grille serves as a showcase of the design direction of the brand moving forward, while enhancements to the suspension, powertrain, and interior aim to improve overall refinement and performance.

In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention circlip may not have been properly installed, and as a result, the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving and without prior warning.
Consequences
If the halfshaft and linkshaft become disengaged while driving, power will no longer be transmitted to the wheels, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, if the parking brake is not applied before exiting the vehicle, the vehicle may roll away despite the transmission being placed in 'Park', increasing the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
Remedy
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage, free of charge. The recall began on August 4, 2014. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S10.
