    Lincoln MKS



    http://www.netcarshow.com/lincoln/2009-mks/

    Less than a year after launch, the Lincoln MKS will be the first vehicle to offer Ford's new gasoline turbo direct injection engine technology.
    The premium engine - which offers the power and torque of a V-8 with the fuel efficiency of a V-6 - will make the Lincoln MKS the most powerful and fuel-efficient all-wheel drive luxury sedan in the market.

    Now that's a bold statement. I wonder if Audi will sit still for that.

    Eh, it looks very little like the concept car. And the profile SCREAMS Buick LaCrosse. The interior looks really nice but nothing really groundbreaking. I do like the front end, though.

    Could be a winner. It would be about time, too...

    that and a ford / possibly god knows who really made the base motor v6.



    The ONLY thing ford can make right, and only when they make them are v8s and i4s with turbos.


    6 cyls, they just FAIL

    Re: Lincoln MKS

    Surprisingly, I've grown to like the 3.5 V6 in my MKZ. I had to hammer it on Thursday to make a left turn onto a wet 4-lane 55 MPH road and the 3.5 with the 6 speed and AWD got me up to 65 MPH in a big hurry with no slipping or sliding.

    The new 3.5 is a nice engine from what I hear. I haven't heard any complaints about it.

    270hp is a pretty weak V8 by modern standards.
    270hp is also a generation late seeing as the big players in this segment now have 300+hp V6's (BMW, Cadillac, etc.).

    Priced alongside Buick it would be great. Priced at $37k, it falls short of it's competition in every category I can think of.

    Maybe fuel efficient, but powerful? Or is Audi no longer in the luxury sedan market?

    Re: Lincoln MKS

    My understanding is that Ford built its V6 reputation on the Duratec, used in the Noble supercar and in racing.



    I could hang out at the Lincoln site all day long. Nice music!

    Re: Lincoln MKS

    I don't know about any of this Buick talk, but if you look at the MKS and the Jaguar XF in profile.. they're damn near identical.

    And I'm not saying that like it's a good thing.
