2014 Lincoln MKS: 18/27 mpg (FWD); 18/26 mpg (AWD)
2014 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost: 17/25 mpg (AWD)
The fuel economy for the 2014 Lincoln MKS is about average for the segment, even with some of the luxury sedan's fuel-saving technologies.
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.
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.
It's no gas-mileage gem, but the Lincoln MKS earns acceptable fuel economy ratings.
