[EcoBoost MKS is] only about $4,000 more than an equivalently-optioned non-EcoBoost MKS

It's hard to beat the level of technology available in the 2014 Lincoln MKS–especially when you look at price, which is drastically lower than the competitive German models on the market.

The MKS has a few options to tempt. With the Premium Package, you get a heated steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals, navigation, premium audio, a power rear sunshade, and blind-spot and cross traffic alert systems; while the Elite Package adds Active Park Assist, Lane Keeping, premium wood trim, and a few other extras. Altogether, you can load an EcoBoost MKS just past the $50k mark--but then you get quite the collection of luxury and tech features, at what might also buy a rather basic German sport sedan.

Even in the base model, for about $42,000, the MKS comes with satellite and HD radio; ventilated front seats; heated front and rear seats; adaptive HID headlamps; rear parking sensors; automatic climate control; and an exterior keypad entry system, among many other features.

Last year, Lincoln updated the dash somewhat, and added a new reconfigurable gauge cluster, plus MyLincoln Touch, which integrates Bluetooth phone connectivity, audio-streaming, media controls, and even climate controls and navigation. While some will love this system, we're still in a love-hate relationship over how heavy-handed it can be, and we do quite despite the capacitive sliders it brings to climate control and audio volume controls.

Go with the turbocharged MKS EcoBoost, and you add larger 20-inch wheels in addition to all-wheel drive. There's also MyKey, which lets owners set things like speed limiters, volume control and seatbelt reminders for other drivers (think teenagers).

Conclusion

The MKS has more standard luxury features than are available as options on other luxury sedans; it just lacks the image.

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.
