The 2013 Lincoln MKS is a big luxury sedan, and despite the introduction of a few more fuel-saving technologies this year it doesn't offer gas mileage that's any better than the norm for a vehicle this size.

Active Grille Shutters, now included in 3.7-liter versions of the MKS, smartly open only when more cooling is needed, reducing aerodynamic drag and improving fuel economy on the highway. Also new for the MKS is a smart battery management system that puts a higher priority on battery charging when coasting or decelerating.

Base versions of the MKS earn EPA ratings of 18/27 mpg--2 mpg better on the highway than last year. That's still quite low figure for a modern V-6-powered sedan. EcoBoost turbo versions with all-wheel drive are rated 17/25, while AWD 3.7-liter versions get 18/26 mpg.

Conclusion

Fuel economy is improved for 2013, but the MKS is still no efficiency leader.

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.
