The Lincoln MKS hasn't really found a following but the company is hoping for better luck the next time around.

According to Car & Driver, the 2016 MKS will be a Taurus-based flagship that borrows some cues from the MKC crossover. We can also expect plenty of chrome trim and "1970s-inspired" kinks in the side windows and rear shoulder line.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but sources have indicated the model will be offered with a new 2.9-liter EcoBoost V6 that develops approximately 300 bhp (223 kW). The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 should also carryover and produce at least 365 bhp (272 kW).

Both engines will reportedly be connected to a six-speed automatic transmission but it will eventually be replaced by nine-speed gearbox that is being co-developed with General Motors. As before, front-wheel drive will be standard while all-wheel drive will be optional.
