2013 Lincoln MKS Road Test Review

Lincoln's flagship sedan improves style and ups power Four years after it hit the market as a 2009 model, Lincoln's MKS still isn't an especially common sight on Canadian roads, but with an eye to improving its popularity Lincoln has refreshed the 2013 MKS inside and out, giving it more power, better brakes, a revised suspension, new front and rear fascias, and an improved interior with more available features than ever before. It's technically what you'd call a mild update rather than a thorough reworking, but the changes do add up to surprisingly good effect, giving the MKS much... Read More

    Official: Dodge Dart falls short of Consumer Reports Recommended, Caddy XTS and Lincoln MKS, too
    1353628800

    The Dodge Dart, Cadillac XTS and Lincoln MKS all failed to earn a "Recommended" rating from Consumer Reports. When it came to the compact Dart, the organization's testers thought the vehicle offered a quiet cabin, solid-feeling chassis and nimble suspension, but the new model ultimately fell short of the coveted rating due to powertrain issues. The ...

    Review: 2013 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost
    1352825820

    A Bench-Warmer In Waiting I hail from Cleveland, and that means I'm familiar with sports franchises that are always falling short of championships. The Indians, the Browns, the Cavs – they've all come close, but being a resident of C-Town means learning to appreciate the effort more than a reward that never seems to come.

    Report: Lincoln to focus on volume models, not halo car
    1345989600

    There's profits in numbers. That's going to be the approach to new vehicles at Lincoln, Automotive News says. Lincoln will focus on high-volume vehicles instead of low-selling flagships and halo vehicles. That means a steady diet of alphabet soup loaded with MKZ's, MKX's and MKS's for dealers and no more fancy flagships or other vehicles that don't meet ...

    Don't get ahead of yourselves: This is not yet another Lincoln-badged Mustang rumor post, the likes of which seem to crop up every few years. Instead, Ford's wayward luxury division is reportedly hoping to gain access to the bits and pieces that will underpin the next-generation pony car – specifically, the MacPherson front and independent rear ...

    Lincoln has released the first 30-second ad spot for the 2013 MKS, with its seventeen intial seconds spent covering the era of Lincoln glory from 1922 to 1976. The ad almost feels like an apology for the MKS, as if the ad team really wanted to sell the 2013 MKZ but was assigned the penalty-box MKS and had their protestations silenced with, "Just make ...

    For a while there, it looked like Ford forgot about Lincoln, and dismal sales numbers reflected the marque's lack of attention. But just when it was beginning to look like Lincoln was on its last leg, Ford's luxury arm unveiled the refreshed MKS and MKT at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Those models may not go far enough to usher Lincoln back to relevance, ...

    %Gallery-139642% Think about the position that Cadillac was in over a decade ago; that's about where Lincoln is today. The rebirth of a brand doesn't happen overnight, so until Lincoln debuts its next generation of fully redesigned and reimagined products, subtle evolution and continued refinement are the order du jour.

    Yesterday, Lincoln released the teaser you see above on its Facebook page, showing what's in store for the automaker's revised design language that's coming soon (we're guessing it's the hood and fender of the redesign MKT).
