Lincoln has priced the new 2010 MKS with Ecoboost at a base price of US$47,760, excluding destination and delivery. The 2010 Lincoln MKS is the first Ford Motor Company group vehicle to receive the new 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine for the 2010 model year. This motor is flanked by two small turbos that spool up quickly in order to reduce the much-dreaded turbo lag problem. The two spinners are designed to last 150,000 miles (241,402km) or 10 years.
Peak power comes to 355hp (261kW) and maximum torque is 350 ft-lb (475Nm) made between 1,500rpm and 5,250rpm. Despite all that power Ford is adamant the 4WD MKS will return at least 17mpg in city driving and 24mpg in highway driving.
The standard car comes fitted with 19-inch aluminium wheels, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive headlamps and a rear window power sunshade. Inside there are steering wheel paddle shifters for the 6-speed automatic transmission, a push button start system and ambient lighting.
