There are few luxury four-doors that come with some of the Lincoln MKS’ standout technology and entertainment features. More likely, you’ll have to pay twice as much for a car that includes as many as the full-featured, $50,000 EcoBoost MKS.

The base MKS carries a lower sticker price, from about $42,000, and sports its own impressive standard-features list. It comes with an AM/FM/Sirius/CD changer stereo; Ford’s SYNC voice-activated entertainment controller; cruise control; ventilated front seats; heated front and rear seats; automatic climate control; and HID headlamps. Adding all-wheel drive boosts the price a few thousand dollars.

Step up to the almost $50,000 EcoBoost MKS, and Lincoln fits 19-inch wheels; MyKey (which sets top speed and seatbelt reminders for younger drivers); a power rear sunshade; push-button start; active park assist; ambient lighting; and automatic high beams.

It’s not simply that the MKS has these features—it’s that they work as well as they do, far better in some cases than the wonky roller-controller systems from BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz. Give us a touchscreen over any of these—and we’ll also take SYNC’s clear Bluetooth connections, though we recommend you test out your phone’s pairing with SYNC, just to make sure you’re able to connect to all its features.

The MKS has a few options to tempt. There’s a big dual-pane sunroof; handsome wood trim; an EcoBoost appearance package; adaptive cruise control; a simple, easy-to-use SYNC or touchscreen DVD navigation system; awesome THX-certified audio; and snazzy 20-inch wheels. For the 2011 model year, SYNC adds the ability to dispense turn-by-turn navigation with real-time traffic and personalized directions. And this year, the MKS adds HD radio to its substantial entertainment portfolio.

Conclusion

The 2010 Lincoln MKS tops the entertainment index with easy-to-use tech features like SYNC and GPS.

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.
