The Lincoln MKT feels as if it is specifically engineered for the exact stretch of pavement you're on at any given moment. The MKT feels this way because it adapts. When the conditions change| its suspension changes. Thanks to new Lincoln Drive Control technology| it handles curves with precision| while helping to isolate you from road harshness. All you sense is agile control and smooth ride comfort. The new standard MKT engine| the aluminum 3.7L Ti-VCT V6| provides 303 hp and 278 lb.-ft. of torque| while topping the class with 25 mpg hwy. The DOHC design provides exceptional valve timing control to deliver high peak horsepower and low-end torque. It all adds up to outstanding performance. You can also choose from the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and even the 6-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission with paddle activation. With the MKT you can feel impeccably dressed for the occasion| surrounded by soft Bridge of Weir premium leather trim with new Prussian burl or brown swirl walnut wood. Take your seat at the head of the table| and enjoy the warmth of a heated steering wheel. Front seats are both heated and cooled. The interior benefits are extended to all. The hushed cabin invites conversation between all guests. While they relax in their own heated and cooled seats in the 2nd-row outboard positions| they'll enjoy the spaciousness of class-leading legroom| the convenience of separate automatic climate controls| and even a 110-volt power outlet. Dual DVD head restraints play movies and video games| and a refrigerated 2nd-row console ensures that cold drinks are always at hand.
