2013 Lincoln MKT facelift unveiled in L.A. [video]

Lincoln has taken the wraps off the 2013 MKT facelift in Los Angeles.

Set to be launched next spring, the crossover features a new front fascia and a revised grille.  Interior changes are also minor, but include a new instrument cluster, a panoramic sunroof and an updated MyLincoln Touch infotainment system.

Under the hood, the 3.7-liter V6 engine produces 300 hp (224 kW / 304 PS) and 275 lb-ft (372 Nm) of torque - an increase of 32 hp (24 kW / 32 PS) and 8 lb-ft (11 Nm). Thanks to twin-independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), Lincoln expects the model to return 17 mpg city / 25 mpg highway.

Even more powerful, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 develops 355 hp (265 kW / 360 PS) and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque. It has an estimated fuel economy rating of 16 mpg city / 22 mpg highway.

Regardless of which engine is selected, both are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system. Other highlights include a new electronic power steering system, beefier brakes and a continuously controlled damping system on EcoBoost models.
