Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.

Pros
Generous number of standard features
Turbocharged V6 provides strong acceleration

Cons
Many safety features are optional
Dated interior design and controls
Tight rear headroom and luggage space

Ford has made a few tweaks to its mid-size crossover for 2021, such as making heated seats standard on the XLT, offering a heated steering wheel as an optional feature on that model, and including an eight-way power-adjustable front passenger's seat on the Limited, ST, and Platinum models. A Sport Appearance package is now available on the XLT trim, and it includes 20-inch aluminum wheels that are coated in Carbonized Gray paint.

Pros
Smooth and controlled ride,
cargo friendly interior design,
comfortable front seats.

Cons
Third row space is tight,
plasticky interior bits,
most desirable models are pricey.
