5.0

I love this car.

The car handles and rides like a luxury car should. The 3.5 L EcoBoost engine is very responsive and powerful. The cargo space with the 3rd seat folded down is voluminous. The MKT suits our needs perfectly.

5.0

GREAT VEHICLE FOR A GROWING FAMILY!

This is a wonderful vehicle because it can seat 7-8 people comfortably. We have 9 grandchildren and can get 7 and my wife and I in the SUV. It has a wonderful ride and with the panoramic roof and DVD system the grands absolutely love it. So much room for a sedan-like vehicle.
