The 2016 Lincoln MKS is the much waited upcoming replacement of the current generation MKS model. Contrary to what most people believe, this car will come with a refreshed version and share its platform with Ford Taurus. It will sport a look that will combine the best of aggressiveness and elegance alongside having a tough aluminium body. Lesser body weight than its predecessor will help this vehicle to have more fuel economy in addition to better performance overall. It will also receive two engine options that users can choose between, depending on their requirement.
2016 Lincoln MKS Engine Specs
Under the hood of 2016 MKS, we will find a 3.7 litre V6 engine that will produce a horsepower up to a maximum of 305 at 6500 rpm and torque of 280 lb-ft. The additional engine will be a 3.5 litre EcoBoost V6 variant that will deliver 365 hp at 5500 rpm and torque of 350 lb-ft at 3500 rpm. Power is transferred through a 6-speed auto transmission system and come with all-wheel drive system. These engines produced outstanding fuel economy rates without sacrificing on power and expected to return on an average 18 mpg on city drive and 26 mpg on highways. The higher trim variant will obviously have better fuel efficiency.
2016 Lincoln MKS Exterior Design and Changes
The Lincoln MKS 2016 will come to the market with a modified exterior design that reeks of elegance with a slight touch of aggressiveness. Its main characteristics are its aluminium based body architecture and extensive use of chrome elements on the bumper. Like most of the other upcoming vehicles in the Crossover sedan segment, this too is expected to host attractive LED lights on both head and taillights. We expect this vehicle to acquire a more aerodynamic shape to help it excel in performance and handling mechanics. The company will be looking forward to fulfilling the expectations of the people.
