2013 Lincoln MKT
2013 Lincoln MKT

New For 2013

Lincoln focused on upgrading the MKT’s ride and handling for 2013. The new Lincoln Drive Control system comes standard on EcoBoost-equipped MKTs and offers Sport, Comfort, and Normal drive modes. We prefer the Sport mode as it noticeably tightens handling, a historical weakness for the big crossover. Larger brakes with improved cooling now give the MKT more-confident braking.

Overview

How did the Lincoln MKT go from worst-in-class ride and handling to surpassing Lexus in only a year? Lincoln Drive Control, which debuted on the MKS sedan this year as well, comes standard on the EcoBoost model. This new system allows the driver to alter steering, suspension, throttle, transmission, and active noise control settings according to his or her mood. Although the system doesn’t make the MKT as enjoyable to drive as a BMW X5, it should be more than enough for the average consumer looking for three rows of seating and a premium interior. Unfortunately, Lincoln’s exterior design changes for 2013 don’t help an overall shape best described as ungainly and ill proportioned. If you don’t mind the exterior styling, the interior is quite nice. Lincoln uses quality materials throughout the cabin, and the optional MyLincoln Touch takes center stage for 2013. We’ve found this infotainment system to be fussy and overly frustrating for basic functions like controlling the temperature, but it looks sharp, and there are redundant voice controls for most functions through the Sync system. Physical controls for climate regulation would make for a slightly more cluttered center stack, but they’d work each time—a compromise we’d happily make in the name of function.

Safety

ABS; front, side, and side curtain air bags; and traction and stability control are standard. A blind-spot monitoring system, adaptive cruise control, parallel-parking assistance, a collision-warning system with brake support, a head-up display, inflatable second-row seatbelts, lane-keep assist, collision warning, and adaptive headlamps are optional.

You'll like:

  • Very nice interior
  • Finally handles well

You won't like:

  • Ungainly face
  • Cramped third row

2013 Lincoln MKT Ecoboost Front Left View 5
Open the doors and the rear liftgate and you immediately see evidence of the old Ford D3 platform that underpins this vehicle: the protruding lips that preclude a smooth floor transition at the rocker panels; the huge depth for liftover at the liftgate. That said, Ford has done a superb job of packaging seating into the interior space, and the third-row seats fold cleverly and neatly into the cargo cavity to create a flat load floor that's even with the bumper height. Love the electric operation.

The decision to purchase a minivan is a pragmatic one. Drive a minivan and you admit to the world that you have children and a Costco membership, and that you want one vehicle that can transport your offspring and multi-packs of toilet paper.
2013 Lincoln MKS Frornt Three Quarters 2
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.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles manufactured September 2, 2010, to November 30, 2013; 2013-2014 Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS vehicles manufactured August 25, 2011, to November 30, 2013; and 2013-2014 Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT vehicles manufactured September 12, 2011, to November 30, 2013. 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.
