The 2011 Lincoln MKS flagship sedan evokes luxury from its exceptional quietness and comfort to its premium materials, class-exclusive features and confident driving demeanor.
The Lincoln MKS provides isolation from road noise and harshness but doesn’t isolate the driver from the road. Steering is precise and responsive; the ride is smooth yet taut; braking is linear and controlled.
New for 2011, music lovers will enjoy the addition of HD Radio technology to the available voice-activated navigation system. The HD Radio receiver enables more listening options and digital sound quality. SYNC voice-activated in-vehicle connectivity system, standard on the Lincoln MKS, now integrates Traffic, Directions and Information with the voice-activated navigation system.
The 2011 MKS delivers a precision-crafted environment resplendent in premium leather trim and real wood and metal accents. Elegant surfaces create the feeling that the interior has been sculpted, rather than constructed. Leather-trimmed seats are double-stitched and feature an exclusive Lincoln perforation pattern on the inserts.
Fuel efficiency comes standard on the Lincoln MKS and customers have a choice of two powerful V-6 engines. A 3.7-liter award-winning Duratec engine is standard. Delivering 274 horsepower and 270 ft.-lb. of torque, this engine is tuned to provide brisk acceleration and smooth power delivery. MKS offers an available 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V-6. This engine provides 355 horsepower while generating 350 ft.-lb. of torque.
