The 2010 Lincoln MKT may be based on the Ford Edge crossover, but the Lincoln far exceeds its corporate cousin on the features front. Some consumers might initially face sticker shock, but once they realize the quality and number of features inside the 2010 Lincoln MKT, they'll likely find that the crossover is a relative bargain.

The MKT Lincoln enters the marketplace with a base price of $44,995 for a base model, while the turbocharged 2010 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost bows with a sticker of $49,995. The base MSRP is high, especially given the current state of the economy, but Lincoln tries to deliver value by packing the MKT Lincoln with standard features. ConsumerGuide reviewers report that "leather upholstery, heated and cool[ed] front seats, a power tilt and telescopic steering wheel, and power-adjustable pedals are standard" on all 2010 Lincoln MKTs, but other reviews read by TheCarConnection.com highlight some of the more exciting standard features. Cars.com, for example, points out that "standard features include adaptive xenon headlights with an automatic high-beam feature and keypad entry," while Edmunds simply raves about the "long list of standard features." Chief among the standard features is Ford's SYNC system, which ConsumerGuide says allows for "voice-activated control for cell phones and MP3 players." A 10-speaker sound system with a 10-gigabyte hard drive provides the entertainment on both versions of the 2010 Lincoln MKT.

For consumers who still have cash to burn after matching the MSRP, Lincoln offers a number of tremendous options that Edmunds appropriately deems "cutting-edge." Car and Driver reports that "adaptive cruise control with collision warning and brake assist ($1295) is one of the few major options" on the MKT Lincoln, while Cars.com references the available "THX certified 5.1 Surround Audio System with 14 speakers." Edmunds heads straight for the big-ticket items, noting that the MKT Lincoln "can be decked out with...an automated parallel-park feature, a navigation system, the Sirius Travel Link Service" and "a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system." Among the major remaining options, the available "second-row center console with a built-in refrigerator/freezer" is probably the most noteworthy, according to Edmunds.

Conclusion

The 2010 Lincoln MKT steps up to the plate in the tech department, equaling or exceeding any of its major competitors.

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.
