“can be decked out with…an automated parallel-park feature, a navigation system, the Sirius Travel Link Service” and “a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system.”
We're fans of the Ford Flex, but when it comes to standard luxury and entertainment features—rightly so—the MKT elbows it aside with a huge package of e-gear.
Aside from the usual power features and the MKT's flexible seating features, it also boasts a big fixed-panel glass sunroof; dual-zone climate control; Lincoln SYNC, their flavor of Ford's Bluetooth-and-voice-controlled entertainment interface; a keyless entry pad on the door frame; high-intensity discharge headlamps with automatic high beams; and push-button start with MyKey features that allow drivers to set preferences for speed controls, radio functions, and seat/mirror memory positions.
The under-$50,000 MKT quickly rises to nearly $55,000 when you opt for the EcoBoost engine. That version dollops on a power panoramic sunroof; 20-inch polished aluminum wheels; active parking assist and adaptive cruise control; a rear-seat DVD entertainment system; and a navigation system with a music hard drive and THX II-certified speakers. The only option we can think of that's found in competitive vehicles and not in the MKT is some kind of mobile TV, like Chrysler's FLO TV and Sirius BackseatTV options.
Still not enough for your needs? You can order a five-quart refrigerator that wedges neatly between the middle seats. Between the fridge and cadres of cup holders, you'll never be more than arm's reach from a Red Bull. That's a good thing, right?
DVD players, panoramic sunroofs, plug-ins for game boys—the MKT’s toys and gadgets add up to one big mute button for kids and cranky spouses. We like.
