Expert Quotes:

2011 Lincoln MKT: 17/23 mpg (FWD); 16/22 mpg (AWD)
EPA

2011 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost: 16/21 mpg
EPA




Normally aspirated and turbocharged V-6 engines are the norm, which is why the 2012 Lincoln MKT isn't the most fuel-sipping crossover on the market.

However, the big, bold MKT is rated fairly highly, among vehicles with third-row seats. The EPA gives the MKT with the normally aspirated V-6 a rating of 17/23 mpg, when it's outfitted with front-wheel drive. With all-wheel drive factored in, the numbers fall to 16/22 mpg.

The EcoBoost MKT, with its turbocharger, drops another mile per gallon, checking in at 16/21 mpg.

Ford will not offer hybrid or diesel powerplants in the MKT. The big crossover is already one of the most expensive Lincolns, and adding on those high-tech fuel savers would send its sticker price soaring.

Conclusion

Gas mileage is low in the 2012 Lincoln MKT, but before you judge, factor in its seven-passenger seating.

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.
