    The Lincoln MKS is Ford Motor Company's flagship premium sedan. It debuted for the 2009 model year, featuring more modern styling than Lincolns of previous years.

The suspension has been revised to result in quieter, easier handling, Ford says.

Standard on the first two trims are 18-inch wheels, keyless ignition, keyless entry, a full menu of power accessories (including 12-way heated and ventilated front seats), leather upholstery, sound system with touchpad entry, adaptive Xenon headlights, and other features. A sunroof is optional, and so are 19-inch or 20-inch wheels, a hard-drive-based navigation system, adaptive cruise control, premium sound system, and more.

    The standard powertrain for the 2010 Lincoln MKS FWD and AWD trims is a 273-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control. It delivers 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive, and 16/23 with all-wheel drive, according to the EPA. The EcoBoost trim comes with a 355-horsepower, 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 engine and all-wheel drive. It delivers 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
