The 2013 Lincoln MKS receives major updates this year, including new standard equipment, exterior and interior styling changes, engine upgrades, fuel economy improvements and suspension enhancements.
The 2013 Lincoln MKS comes with a number of styling changes, more standard and optional equipment, and a thorough upgrade to the car's performance and ride comfort. All of these individual adjustments add up to create an improved MKS that should make it easier for those shopping in the luxury sedan segment to feel better about choosing a Lincoln for a better reason than simply "buy American."
Visually, the 2013 MKS is more elegant, with subtly yet significantly revised sheet metal that provides this large sedan with a more elegant, premium flair all its own. The dramatic-looking grille is still there, and it's been narrowed and swept back for a sleeker, more dramatic look. Inside, the MKS now features a newly crafted instrument panel, the latest MyLincoln Touch infotainment system and upgraded materials.
Powertrains remain fundamentally familiar, yet both available engines have increased output and efficiency. The base 3.7-liter V6 now makes 300 horsepower, a rise from last year's 273, while the turbocharged V6 gets another 10 hp for a total of 365 hp. Accompanying this are improved brakes, steering and an all-new adaptive suspension system that uses computer-controlled dampers to advance both ride and handling to an appropriately sophisticated level. The standard equipment level has also been enhanced to now include formerly optional or even previously unavailable features. Lincoln also worked extensively to make the MKS quieter.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2013 Lincoln MKS sedan comes in three trim levels: FWD, AWD and EcoBoost. The FWD and AWD models come with standard 19-inch alloy wheels, adaptive suspension dampers, rear parking sensors, adaptive xenon headlamps, automatic high beams, foglamps, keyless ignition/entry, exterior keypad entry and heated mirrors with driver-side auto-dimming. Inside you'll find leather upholstery, heated and ventilated eight-way power front seats with driver memory settings and four-way lumbar adjustment, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, Sync voice control, the MyLincoln Touch electronics interface, mobile WiFi and a 10-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio and a USB/iPod interface.
The MKS EcoBoost is similarly equipped but comes with a twin-turbocharged engine, standard all-wheel drive and 20-inch wheels.
There are two optional packages. The Premium package includes blind-spot and cross-traffic warning systems, a heated steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals, a power rear sunshade, a rearview camera, a premium 16-speaker surround-sound audio system and a navigation system. The Elite package includes everything in the Premium package plus front "multicontour" seats, automated parallel-parking assist, heated rear seats, lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist and a premium wood package.
Stand-alone options include a dual-panel sunroof and adaptive cruise control with collision warning and brake support.
Powertrains and Performance
Both FWD (front-wheel-drive) and AWD (all-wheel-drive) trim levels share the same powertrain: a 3.7-liter V6 matched to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift control. This engine generates 300 hp and 280 pound-feet of torque. EPA estimated fuel economy is 18 mpg city/27 highway mpg and 21 mpg combined, 1 mpg better combined than last year's MKS. With AWD, those numbers drop slightly to 18/26/21.
The all-wheel-drive EcoBoost model is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that makes 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is estimated at 17 mpg city/25 mpg highway and 20 mpg combined.
The 2013 Lincoln MKS comes standard with stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and antilock brakes. Adaptive cruise control with collision warning and brake support is available as an option, as are blind-spot and cross-traffic warning systems, lane-departure and lane-keeping assist, and a rearview camera.
In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing, the MKS earned a top rating of "Good" for its safety in frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength testing.
Interior Design and Special Features
The 2013 MKS features an all-new interior design. Sweeping lines replace straight ones and a subtle ambient lighting system adds to the interior's luxurious environment. Lincoln says it has also improved the quality of the leather upholstery and the overall fit and finish. The premium feel that was missing from the MKS clearly has found its way into the 2013 model.
Improvements to the MyLincoln Touch interface are also noteworthy. It consists of multiple display screens and the ability to input commands for various audio, phone and navigation functions via voice, touch controls or buttons on the steering wheel. The previous version was cluttered with far too many buttons and was slow to react, but the latest update is marginally easier to read, with significantly quicker reactions to inputs.
Being a large sedan, the 2013 MKS offers plenty of interior and cargo space, with generous head- and legroom. Rear passenger room and comfort are particularly impressive. The trunk is one of the bigger ones you'll find, with an 18.4-cubic-foot capacity.
The MKS is utterly transformed. Where it once felt dull and overly soft, it feels alert and responsive over a variety of surfaces. Similarly, the highway ride is improved, feeling more controlled and settled rather than vague and heavy. Clearly, the EcoBoost engine will be the preferred choice, but the base 3.7-liter V6 should now be a viable choice for most shoppers.
For 2013 all four disc brakes have been increased in size, bringing the total brake pad and swept area up to levels that should improve brake effectiveness and brake fade characteristics, as well as brake feel in general
