Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Lincoln MKT has some appeal in its distinctive design, appealing list of features and strong available turbocharged V6 engine. But its dated overall design holds it back from being a truly desirable pick for a luxury crossover.The 2018 Lincoln MKT trims are renamed Premiere and Reserve, replacing the base MKT and EcoBoost, respectively.

Pros
Generous number of standard features
Optional turbocharged V6 provides strong acceleration

Cons
Tight rear headroom and luggage space
Dated interior design and controls
Many safety features are optional
Base MKT isn't particularly rewarding to drive
