Lincoln MKT

Overall Rating: 8.5
From The Third Row: Whether it's kids or cranky spouses, the MKT has the luxury goods and entertainment extras to soothe.
Bottom Line: The swinging style sets an audacious mood—and the 2011 Lincoln MKT backs it up with turbo V-6 thrust.

The 2011 Lincoln MKT is based on the same underpinnings as the Ford Flex, but you probably wouldn't know it. With its own stretched-out, broad-shouldered take on the classic long American luxury wagon, the MKT looks like something that might appeal to a modern version of the Mad Men set.

Like the Flex, the MKT has limousine-like comfort for four adults, with four individual buckets plus seating for two more adults in the third row. That rearmost row is also quite easy to get to. With a sweet THX sound system, a huge panoramic sunroof, and available heated-and-cooled seats in the first two rows—plus techy features like active parking assist and adaptive cruise control—the MKT has what it takes to impress a more discerning crowd. There's even an optional fridge that wedges between those middle-row seats.

In fact, it's no mistake that the Lincoln MKT is the heir apparent to the Lincoln Town Car, the longtime mainstay for limousines and executive-car fleets. With that much space on tap, livery companies—along with Ford Motor Co.—can turn this interior into a very special place, if it isn't already.
