Ford has unveiled the new Lincoln MKT, a luxury crossover model from the Detroit premium brand.
The Lincoln MKT is one of the first vehicles to offer Ford's new V6 EcoBoost engine. A 3.5 liter with 355 hp and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque that provides greater fuel-economy at no cost of performance. The MKT will also be offered with a larger, though less powerful, 3.7 liter V6 Duratec with 268 hp and 267 lb-ft (360 Nm) of torque.
The MKT EcoBoost comes as an all-wheel drive which is optional on the standard MKT as well. The MKT will feature a glass roof, what Ford has trademarked as the Panoramic Vista Roof.
A third row of seats offers a six or seven seat configuration in the MKT along with footrests for the second row passengers to put their feet up while watching the Family Entertainment System's twin 7-inch DVD screens.
Body paint colors are plentiful and include such appetizing sounding options such as Tuxedo Black, Red Candy Tint Clearcoat Metallic and Cinnamon Clearcoat Metallic.
The Lincoln MKT goes on sale in late summer in North America.
