New Car Review: 2010 Lincoln MKS with EcoBoost

Share |

By Bob Plunkett

 

 
When you plant your foot hard on the go-pedal of the new 2010 Lincoln MKS this sleek machine races down long straights and seems like it's about to fly off the runway.

 

Lincoln And the new optional twin-turbo V6 -- promising the fuel economy of a V6 but pumping the power and torque of a big V8 -- is labeled the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6.

   

That's quite a kick for a plush luxury sedan stuffed with high-tech controls and fancy cabin appointments. MKS measures up as a four-door sedan with a generous passenger compartment that's large enough to carry five adult riders in luxurious comfort. The 2010 Lincoln MKS looks elegant and classy in a bold design for the body.

EPA fuel economy estimates for the V6 come in at 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway for MKS FWD and 16/23 mpg city/highway for MKS AWD.

The spec sheet for MKS 10 lists lots of active and passive safety equipment. Passive devices include smart dual-stage frontal air bags for front riders, plus seat-mounted side air bags up front and curtain-style side air bags front and rear.

The price points for the 2010 MKS begin at $40,870.

I like your blog. It is straight to the point and i found it very interesting. It is also suited to all readers. Thank you so much for posting.

The MKS looks very classy. I like the fact that Lincoln gives buyers the option of choosing Ecoboost without having to sacrifice power.
