2011 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost: 16/21 mpg
With a choice of supercharged or normally aspirated V-6 engines, the 2011 Lincoln MKT isn't the most fuel-efficient crossover on the market.
However, it's rated fairly well for vehicles with third-row seats. The EPA rates the MKT with the base V-6 at 17/23 mpg when equipped with front-wheel drive. When all-wheel drive is optioned in, the numbers drop to 16/22 mpg.
The EcoBoosted, supercharged MKT loses another mile per gallon, checking in at 16/21 mpg.
Ford has not announced any plans to offer hybrids or diesels in the MKT--instead, the crossover is taking the place of its Town Car as a livery vehicle, subbing in for the old body-on-frame sedan in limousine duty, even as a hearse.
The 2011 Lincoln MKT has low fuel economy--but you have to factor in its seven-passenger carrying capability.
