For 2019, the Lincoln MKT eliminates last year's base V6 engine, optional rear entertainment system and inflatable rear safety belts. In return, all models now come standard with an adaptive suspension, a panoramic sunroof, premium audio and advanced safety features. The Premiere trim name has also been dropped.
