2016 Lincoln MKT Review
This car might not be everyone’s cup of tea but it certainly has its lovers and there are hopes they will be more of them.
New Lincoln MKT will take after previous version but it will come with several new refreshments. There is a saying don’t judge a book by its covers so before you say anything check this article and then leave a comment below.
2016 Lincoln MKT Engine
Two engine options will be available for potential drivers on all markets. They are 3.5l EcoBoost and 3.7l six-cylinder.
The first one is more powerful and it is able to deliver 365 horses and 350 lb-ft of torque. However, it also comes with slightly better fuel economy and it is able to reach 18 mpg and 26 mpg in a city and on highway, respectively.
The only transmission system available is six-speed automatic transmission system. On the other hand, 3.7 liter six-cylinder comes with an output of 303 horses and 278 pound-feet of torque.
This engine comes with six-speed automatic transmission, as well. As it has already been mentioned, this engine cannot show off with mileage figures.
In a city new Lincoln MKT equipped with this six-cylinder is able to reach 17 mpg and 25 mpg on highway. When you compare combined mileage of these two engines (23 mpg to 20 mpg) it is obvious that the first option will save more money.
