The Lexus GS was the bogie for Lincoln, and the 2009 Lincoln MKS certainly hits the mark in terms of quietness.
Lincoln claims to be even quieter than the Lexus in certain important frequency ranges.
The Lincoln MKS is also on the mark in terms of performance.
Like the Lexus GS and the Acura RL, the MKS is powered by a six-cylinder (in addition, Lexus offers a V-8 and a hybrid).
The car targets a more luxury- and technology-minded audience with its myriad of features.
The rear-wheel-drive Cadillac CTS and STS have a more sporting demeanor, and you could shop either against the MKS, depending on how much room you're looking for.
The Cadillac STS offers a V-8 for those who want more power.
