2014 Lincoln MKT vs. Its Competition

2014 Lincoln MKT
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The 2014 Lincoln MKT is a showboat in many ways.

While there are plenty of competitors, all strong in their own ways, none of them are quite as distinctive.

The Ford Flex is closely related to the MKT and might warrant some consideration; even some luxury shoppers are going to find its boxy shape and MINI or Range Rover references to be a bit more handsome.

The new Acura MDX has a big eight-passenger interior and glints of personality, improved in most ways over its previous version.

The Audi Q7 is all about being tasteful, but it's quite expensive the way you'd really want to own it (as a diesel).

The Buick Enclave is more graceful, almost polite, but it's missing some of the tech features and the turbocharger from the big Lincoln, and simply doesn't drive was well.
