2009 Lincoln MKS Unveiled

11 posts in this topic

At launch, the MKS will be offered with only one powertrain, a new 3.7-liter V-6 making 273 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. That's reasonably gutsy, but nowhere near the segment benchmark. Those who'll want more will have to wait a year for the launch of what Ford had been calling its TwinForce V-6. Specifics remain a secret, though this turbocharged powertrain is expected to make the power of a V-8 while delivering V-6 fuel economy. More details are expected in time for the Detroit auto show, early in 2008.

Glad they're finally coming out with a good design that looks American, unlike the LS..

I always cringe when they say something like that. It always makes me think of the SHO V8 which made the power of a V6 while delivering V8 fuel economy.

and before anyone starts with me, the Cutlass DOHC V6 had 5 less horsepower than the SHO, was in a lighter vehicle, and got the same fuel economy as my CTS does now. Not to shabby for an engine designed in 1989.

I still say this would have made a great flagship sedan for Mercury. Oh well, I guess I need to face reality and accept the fact that Lincoln will never be a first tier luxury brand ever again.

Interesting...either the guys in the photo are short or the car is really tall at the cowl level. I like the dash design.

It never was a tier-1 luxury brand.

I do like this car alot. I hate my local Lincoln dealer, but gosh I must say Ford as outdone themselfs. Give yourselfs a pat on the back, but Lincoln this is no flagship its an ES beater. For 42K I can have FWD with all the toys I'd want and in a car the size of the Tarurs that ain't half bad. Hmmm I am going to regret it I like it as much as the new CTS, but the DTS is still my favorite!

Speaking of V8 that thinks it's a V6, look at the Panthers.
