This car is sleek, inside and out.

Love all the extras this car came with and the radio sound is excellent. The ride is smooth and the back seat is very roomy.

Horrible front seats

Drive a MKT as a rental car for a week in Bay Area, CA. Front seats make the driving experience miserable - severe neck and back pain. The issue is the seat bottoms are too soft, so you sink into it. The seat tilt adjustment will not allow you to tilt the seat forward to compensate, it remains at a stubborn tilt backwards. The back of the seat puts pressure on your lower back, no matter how you tilt the back, you never are supported across your back from the upper shoulders down. Couple that with non-adjustable head rests that push your head forward. This has to be the worst front seat built by any manufacturer. I suspect the team that designed these seats at Ford also did the Mustang - same stupid wierdness with how it supports the body. They were clearly designed to fit some body types, but guess what: the Ford Escape's front seats are very good in compariso. What's up Ford? I am 6ft tall guy with average body build. I have driven the Escape hundreds of miles with no issues. The Lincoln MKT puts me in severe pain after 10 miles. Other than seat comfort, the MKT has some wierd features: 2nd row seats that don't fold (in a SUV??), a rear load floor that is NOT flat - it is stepped and it is clear they tried to fill in the space where the missing 3rd row seats would be with a carpeted hunk of foam block. If the seats were normal like most other SUV's, this would be a very nice long distance cruiser. It drives well. Quality of interior finish is actually quite good. But those seats....someone at Lincoln should be fired for allowing crappy seats like this to be used in a vehicle like this. And Lincolns are supposed to be a premium product?

This is something special to own.

I have owned 3 MKT's and they are great vehicles that give a ride and comfort that is hard to find. If you haven't driven an MKT it's something you will enjoy.

One of the most under rated SUV's.

This is the 3rd MKT I have owned and they have all been out standing ride, very comfortable and great performance on the road and in town.

I think the MKT is under rated.

I think the Lincoln MKT is an under rated vehicle. It's ride is superb, comfort like a sedan, it has The Gap Braking Feature, Lane Diversion, Heated and Cooled Front and Back seats and even has a Refrigerated Compartment in the rear area.

Very Comfortable

I love this vehicle. It's not your typical SUV. It has the luxury look and rides like your everyday licoln towncar. Nice quiet and smooth on the road! I love my new vehicle!!!

Wish I could afford one!

I have driven several Lincoln MKTs because I travel a lot for work and get a lot of rental cars. The MKT is always my first choice when it's an upgrade option. Absolutely love how well it drives. Very smooth - maybe a little too smooth because you definitely don't feel the speed! Also love all of the styling. I wish it was in my price range for my personal car!
