Expert Quotes:

Five stars, front- and side-impact protection
NHTSA

Top Safety Pick
IIHS

“Available safety features include ABS, traction control”
ConsumerGuide

“’Cross Traffic Alert’ system…uses sensors to warn the driver of approaching vehicles when backing out of a parking space with limited availability.”
Edmunds

to the rear, “the driver’s view out is restricted”
The New York Times

The MKT earns top safety rankings from both of the major crash-test groups, and piles on more safety technology to earn the highest score we can give in any category.

It's simply loaded with just about every safety feature imaginable and some that you might have never realized you needed. Ford installs front, side,and curtain airbags (which extend three rows of protection); stability and traction control; anti-lock brakes; a rearview camera; a blind-spot alert system; and adaptive headlamps.

The MKT has earned a five-star rating from the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) for front- and side-impact tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) also gives the Lincoln its top "good" scores, and since it also has standard stability control, it earns their Top Safety Pick award.

Beyond the norm, Lincoln tops off the safety package with features like Active Park Assist, which helps drivers guide the MKT into parking spaces through sensors and cameras. Pull next to a spot, dial up the assist, and the MKT steers into place, with your help on the gas and brake.

Conclusion

Safe and sound, the 2011 Lincoln MKT is one of the most protective rides you’ll find.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
