2019 Lincoln MKT

Pros: Strong acceleration from turbocharged V6 engine; lots of standard features; classy interior with excellent passenger space in 1st and 2nd rows

Cons: Swoopy styling restricts rear-seat headroom compared to similar Ford Flex; ride quality isn’t particularly luxurious with available 20-inch wheels

CG Says: The 2019 Lincoln MKT now has a standard 365-horsepower turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine. The base 3.7-liter V6 is no longer offered. All-wheel drive is now standard on the base model and remains standard on the topline Reserve. Lincoln’s premium midsize crossover SUV has three rows of seats for up to seven passengers. Available features include forward-collision warning, lane-keep assist, blind-spot alert, cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, panoramic sunroof, refrigerated console, and power-folding third-row seat. MKT has distinctive styling and a comfortable interior. Both it and the Ford Flex on which it is based have a form-follows-function flair, with the Lincoln sacrificing third-row room for rakish lines. The turbocharged engine boasts strong performance for a vehicle this size. The Reserve’s standard 20-inch wheels, though, have a rather detrimental impact on ride quality. While the 2019 Lincoln MKT is a competent SUV, there’s very little about it that stands out from the pack. Ultimately, nearly all of its rivals offer more compelling combinations of performance, luxury, and value for the money.
