2015 Lincoln MKT vs. Its Competition

Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

While there are plenty of competitors for the 2015 Lincoln MKT, all strong in their own ways, none of them are quite as distinctive.

The closely related Ford Flex might warrant some consideration, as it offers most of the fancy features and the same mechanicals; even some luxury shoppers will find its boxy shape and MINI/Range Rover references to be a bit more handsome than the MKT's look.

The latest Acura MDX has a big eight-passenger interior and glints of personality, having been improved in most ways compared to its predecessor.

The Audi Q7 is a subtly styled and luxurious three-row SUV option, but it's quite expensive when optioned up (we highly recommend the diesel).

Buick's Enclave is perhaps more graceful, almost polite, but it's missing some of the tech features and the big-power option of the Lincoln, and it simply doesn't drive was well.
