2012 Lincoln MKS Review

Powerfully Smart. Brilliantly Intuitive. The 2012 Lincoln MKS. Delivering the performance of a V8 with the fuel economy of a V6. The Lincoln MKS combines two different technologies: turbocharging and direct injection. The 3.5 Liter EcoBoost boasts a breath-taking 355 horsepower. The Lincoln MKS is the only vehicle in it’s class to offer Bridge of Weir leather trimmed seats. 100% un-embossed. 100% unique. Heated and cooled with three temperature settings and ready to provide you with the most comfortable ride ever. Play MP3’s and enable Bluetooth Wireless all while keeping your eyes peeled on the road with voice commanding SYNC by Microsoft. The Lincoln MKS will even alert you if it senses a potential collision using the collision warning with brake support. And when it detects traffic slowing the adaptive cruise control will respond accordingly. The 2012 Lincoln MKS. The car with brains.
