2014 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost: 17/25 mpg (AWD)
EPA




The fuel economy for the 2014 Lincoln MKS is average to middling for the segment, ranging from 20 to 22 mpg combined--despite some new fuel-saving technologies added to the big luxury sedan.

The most efficient model is the base front-wheel-drive sedan, which comes with a 3.7-liter V-6 and is rated at 22 mpg combined (19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway). Add all-wheel drive to that model and the ratings fall slightly, to 21 mpg combined (18 mpg city, 26 mpg highway). Finally, the performance option pairs a more powerful turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 with all-wheel drive; it's rated at 20 mpg combined (17 mpg city, 25 mpg highway).

Active grille shutters--now standard on the 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.

Conclusion

It's no gas-mileage gem, but the Lincoln MKS earns acceptable fuel economy ratings.

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.
