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

Infiniti updates the 2021 QX50 lineup with some minor alterations. Every model now comes with a Wi-Fi hotspot, laminated front side glass, and side-mounted airbags in the rear seat. Mineral Black joins the list of optional paint colors, too. Along with heated front seats, the Luxe model now comes standard with more driver assists, as well as a blackout package.

Pros
One of the better-looking crossovers,
quiet and refined manners,
pretty and roomy interior.

Cons
Unrefined engine sounds during acceleration,
underwhelming fuel economy,
annoying infotainment details.
