2012 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost: 16/23 mpg
EPA




Big luxury sedans often disappoint in gas mileage, and the Lincoln MKS isn't any stranger to the fill-up.

The base versions of the MKS earn EPA ratings of 17/25 mpg. That's a low figure for a modern V-6-powered sedan, with even the bigger six-cylinder Buicks and Chryslers getting up to 30 mpg on the highway. Add on all-wheel drive, and fuel economy dips to 16/23 mpg.

Adding on turbocharging in EcoBoost models doesn't cut down fuel economy, however. The very quick MKS EcoBoost checks in with gas mileage of 17/25 mpg, about what you might find in a full-size, V-8-powered sedan. Ford does say the EcoBoost's performance rivals that of V-8 competitors, and in that context, it's more competitive--while still low.

Conclusion

Fuel economy is disappointing in the 2012 Lincoln MKS, and all-wheel drive takes a greater toll.

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.
