The 2019 Lincoln MKT is an interesting alternative to large SUVs and minivans. It benefits from wagonlike styling, a generous features list and a powerful turbocharged V6 engine. Sadly, after nine years in its current form, it’s outdated compared to most any other competing vehicle.
Nine years is a long time for any car to remain in production without a full redesign. Like the related Ford Flex on which it is based upon, the MKT has a dated-looking interior that does little to impress. It’s also missing some of the latest technology or convenience features you can find on the latest SUVs. Furthermore, the tapered styling of the Lincoln cuts into cargo space and passenger headroom in relation to the Flex.
For these and more reasons, we suggest checking out more contemporary alternatives whether they’re luxury-branded or otherwise.
