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

Look beyond its styling and you’ll find that the 2018 Lincoln MKT makes a great passenger-hauler. Limo services nationwide know that.The 2018 Lincoln MKT is a three-row luxury crossover SUV that's bound to be your next black-car ride.

Pros
Roomy interior
Comfortable seats
Comfortable seats
Top-tier infotainment

Cons
Ungainly, to put it bluntly
Frustrating controls inside
Very thirsty
Did we mention it’s ugly?

Pros
Outstanding off-road capability

There are only a few minor changes in available features for the 2018 Lexus GX 460.If you're seriously considering the GX 460, you probably want to venture off-road in it. But if that's the case, you'll want the added ground clearance the Luxury trim's adaptive air suspension provides. Without it, the GX 460's ground clearance is worse than some crossovers.

PROS
Impressive off-road capability in a segment largely without it
High view out
Easy-to-use interior controls

CONS
Rough ride on broken pavement
Poor fuel economy and acceleration
Seats are uncomfortable
Compromised cargo space and third-row seat

By: 
edmunds.com

The Lexus GX 460 pairs scads of off-road hardware with lots of luxury trim, but most drivers will be better off with a crossover.

Pros
Solid truck feel
Strong, smooth V-8
Smothering ride
Comfortable cabin
Lots of off-road tech

Cons
Tailgate opens sideways
Light steering
Poor fuel economy
Brake feel
Shallow, narrow cargo area
