The 2013 Lincoln MKT is not a very fuel-efficient vehicle; although when you consider its spacious interior and three useful rows of seating, it's easier to leave this calculation on a more positive note.
The EPA gives the EcoBoost MKT with the turbocharged V-6 and all-wheel drive a rating of 16/23 mpg. With only front-wheel drive and the normally aspirated V-6, it achieves a better 17 mpg city, 25 highway.
We haven't yet driven these revised 2013 versions to verify whether real-world mileage is in the range of EPA ratings, but our previous experiences with the MKT showed that the highway ratings especially may be a bit optimistic.
Lincoln is offering a special 235-hp EcoBoost four-cylinder Livery Edition of the MKT Town Car; it achieves 20 mpg in the city, 28 highway, and it has just front-wheel drive. But the brand has no plans to offer it to the public.
The 2013 Lincoln MKT gets slightly better gas mileage this year, and if you plan to use its three roomy rows of seating it's not so bad.
