The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Lincoln MKS doesn't fly in the same business class with the best German luxosedans, but it's a quiet, capable alternative in the second tier of big, upscale sedans. The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up.
