Lincoln MKT 2018

Lincoln MKT 2018 was launched by Lincoln in Small Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) category. The 2018 trims has some additional features to offer in Lincoln MKT 2018 such as number of features for as standard for all trims and optional V6 Turbo charged version which promotes greater acceleration. The Lincoln MKT 2018 is 2-row seating SUV which accommodates 7 passengers however if you opt for captain’s chairs at the back then the capacity is reduced to 6 seats.

The Lincoln MKT 2018 is offered in two trims for different price ranges and features as well as drive train and engine options. The trims are as following.

Premiere Trim:

The premiere trim has 3.7L engine under the hood which generates about 303HP and 278 lb-ft of torque combined with six-speed automatic transmission. The Premiere is offered in FWD (front-wheel-drive) version only. The Lincoln MKT 2018 Premiere trim has long list of features such as adaptive Xenon Headlamps, 19-inches alloy wheels, automatic vipers, remote start engine, automatic ignition and entrance, rear view camera and automatic power lift gate. Further the Lincoln MKT 2018 has leather upholstery, ventilated and heated power seats, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, retractable second-row manual sunshades, fixed glass sunroof and automatic tri-zone climate control. As for the technology section in Lincoln MKT 2018 you have 8.0-inches of infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 10-speaker sound system and Bluetooth connectivity.

The stand-alone package in Reserve has 20-inches wheels, heated and ventilated seats with sliding features which reduces the seating capacity from 7 to 6 persons, panoramic sunroof, refrigerator console located between captain’s chair and rear-seat entertainment system. The Reserve trim is powered by 3.5L V6 engine producing 465 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque.

After the version comes the overall ride experience of Lincoln MKT 2018. The ride experience can be easily divided into several segments such as comfort ability, driving experience and utility etc. The Lincoln MKT 2018 scores well in terms of comfort due to its supportive front-seats. The heated and ventilated seats for front as well as rear also are a plus point adding to the comfort. However lesser legroom and headspace is a drawback for Lincoln MKT 2018.

Driving Experience:

The driving experience in terms of ride quality is good but the Lincoln MKT 2018 lacks in terms of acceleration. This means the premiere trim is slower in terms of acceleration whereas the Reserve trim is somewhat performing on the free-ways and highways. The adaptive suspension affects the ride comfort and drive greatly for longer SUV without compromising the ride quality. As for the interior it has very little to offer in terms of impressing the shoppers. The interior is good in terms of materials but for color scheme i.e. all-black dashboard and old-styled center control layout, the interior feels a little old. As for the utility section Lincoln MKT 2018 has 17.9 cubic-feet of Cargo Capacity behind the third-row seats, However when you fold both the rear seats you will be left up with 75.9 cubic feet of space for cargo.

Interior Photo Gallery:

In simple words the Lincoln MKT 2018 isn’t ideal for loading heavy big items in its back. Overall the Lincoln MKT 2018 has good features for the base as well as upgraded model however it unfortunately lacks in terms of performance. The mileage on FWD Premiere trim is about 15/mpg on local and 21/mpg on highways whereas the AWD version of Reserve trim does about 16/mpg on local and 24/mpg on highways.

What Does Lincoln MKT Lack?

The Lincoln MKT 2018 undoubtedly comes with a great list of features for the standard as well as selective ones. However the main point is its outdated exterior shape as well as interior which it has and lagging behind its rivals. The Lincoln MKT 2018 has been in market for 7-years with designs updates occurring every year or so however the updates are typical as in any of the passenger utility vehicle. Still if you opt for the Lincoln MKT 2018 then it is suggested to go for Reserve trim with Elite package for greater satisfaction. The Lincoln MKT 2018 Premiere trims costs $43,000 whereas the Reserve trim costs $49,000 for starters.
