Introduced for the 2010 model year, the Lincoln MKT is a 7-seat luxury crossover SUV, a more upscale cousin of the Ford Flex. The 2011 model is mainly a carryover, with some new color options added. The MKT is available with front- or all-wheel drive (FWD or AWD), and offers an optional EcoBoost engine: a twin-turbo V-6 model that employs direct fuel injection. The MKT features electric power steering instead of the traditional hydraulic system, and its optional Active Park Assist technology facilitates parallel parking.

The 2011 Lincoln MKT is available in two trim levels: base and EcoBoost. The base trim features 19-inch wheels, leather upholstery, adaptive Xenon headlights, power liftgate, keyless entry and ignition, a full menu of power accessories (including 12-way heated and ventilated front seats), tri-zone automatic climate control, and a 10-speaker sound system, plus many other features. The MKT EcoBoost trim adds 20-inch wheels, AWD, and the aforementioned turbocharged engine. Options on both trims include sliding second-row captain's chairs, adaptive cruise control, Active Park Assist, navigation system, panoramic sunroof, upgraded sound system, rear-seat entertainment system, and a fully featured center console. Maximum cargo space is 76 cubic feet, according to the manufacturer.

The standard power plant in the 2011 Lincoln MKT is a 268-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 engine. It is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control. Front-wheel drive is standard, with AWD optional; with FWD, the base MKT delivers 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The EcoBoost trim comes with a 355-horsepower, 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 engine and AWD. It delivers 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Lincoln MKT include anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, front side air bags, and side curtain air bags. In government crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the MKT received 5 (out of 5) stars for driver and passenger frontal-impact protection. The MKT received highest-possible \"Good\" ratings in front-, side-, and rear-impact tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Starting MSRP for the 2011 Lincoln MKT was $44,300.
