Automobile

Pricing starts at around $42,000 for a front-wheel-drive MKS without any fancy options-but every MKS includes an AM/FM/CD changer with Sirius Satellite Radio and Ford's SYNC voice-activated entertainment controller. Also standard are cruise control; automatic climate control; ventilated front seats; heated front and rear seats; and HID headlamps. An all-wheel-drive edition is a few thousand dollars more.

Automobile sums up the impressive equipment list on the 2010 Lincoln MKS: "Every modern telematics feature is either standard or optional, including a state-of-the-art navigation system with traffic reports supplied by Sirius Satellite Radio." Car and Driver observes that "this is the most advanced and easy-to-use information-technology package on the market, at least for now."

Automobile also notes the "push-button-entry feature that debuted years ago on Lincolns? It returns here...heat-sensitive, backlit numerals integrated into the B-pillar, and they become visible only after you run your hand over them."

The $48,000 MKS with EcoBoost adds 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. That's "about ten grand more than the base MKS," Jalopnik says, "but only about $4,000 more than an equivalently-optioned non-EcoBoost MKS."

MKS options include a dual-pane sunroof, DVD navigation, wood trim, an EcoBoost appearance package, adaptive cruise control, THX-certified audio, and 20-inch wheels. Motor Trend believes "the optional nav system may be the best on the market." Automobile observes "the optional, 600-watt, sixteen-speaker THX II 5.1 surround sound stereo is absolutely superb, and the interface for controlling it through the high-resolution navigation screen is top-notch."

Conclusion

The 2010 Lincoln MKS may have the best entertainment and navigation features of any car on sale today.

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.
