New for 2014:Lincoln

Jeff Youngs | Sep 17, 2013

2014 Lincoln Overview

In an effort to catch up to global competitors, not to mention the United States' own resurgent Cadillac brand, Lincoln updated much of its lineup for the 2013 model year. The MKZ and MKZ Hybrid sedans were completely overhauled, while both the MKS and MKT underwent significant revisions.

For 2014, designs are relatively status quo. With the exception of the MKS, which now offers a standard rearview camera and a lower base price, the lineup has been updated with new paint colors and nothing more.

2014 Lincoln MKS


Lincoln made several significant revisions to its MKS sedan in 2013, updating everything from the powertrain to the styling and assortment of features. With the dust still settling from those changes, the 2014 MKS arrives with only a few tweaks of its own, the most notable of which is the addition of a standard rearview camera. Lincoln has also dropped the base price to make the car more competitive. Buyers are offered the choice of a 304-horsepower V-6 engine that delivers power to the front wheels or a 365-horsepower EcoBoost V-6 paired with an all-wheel-drive (AWD) system.

What's New

  • Standard rearview camera
  • Ingot Silver Metallic, Dark Side Metallic, and Platinum Dune Tri-Coat paint colors
  • Lower base price

2014 Lincoln MKT


Like the MKS sedan, the Lincoln MKT crossover was updated for the 2013 model year. The 2014 MKT has been carried over essentially unchanged, save for the introduction of Platinum Dune Tri-Coat to the exterior color palette.

Inside, the 2014 Lincoln MKT offers seating for 7 and available features such as inflatable second-row seat belts and an available 700-watt sound system. Front-wheel-drive (FWD) and AWD versions are offered, as are normally aspirated and turbocharged V-6 engines.

What's New

  • Platinum Dune Tri-Coat paint color

2014 Lincoln MKX

As this article is written, Lincoln has not released details about the 2014 MKX crossover.

The 5-passenger 2013 MKX, which was carried over unchanged from 2012, is available in FWD and AWD versions, each equipped with a 305-horsepower V-6 engine. The MKX is one of the few remaining Ford or Lincoln models to be offered without an optional EcoBoost engine. Noteworthy features include a panoramic glass roof, available 22-inch alloy wheels, heated and cooled front seats, and a forward-collision warning system.

What's New

  • 2014 model-year information not yet available

2014 Lincoln MKZ

While the MKS and MKT were updated for 2013, the MKZ was completely redesigned. Consequently, the 2014 MKZ debuts with nothing more than new paint colors to differentiate it from last year's model.

Equipped with an EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine, 3.7-liter V-6, or hybrid powertrain boasting an EPA-estimated 45 mpg (same rating for city, highway, and combined mpg), the 2014 Lincoln MKZ is an entry luxury sedan that shares its architecture with the Ford Fusion.

What's New

  • Dark Side Metallic, Sunset Metallic, Sterling Gray Metallic, and Platinum Dune Tri-Coat paint colors

2014 Lincoln Navigator

While the vast majority of shoppers have shifted their attention to relatively efficient crossovers, demand for rugged body-on-frame full-size SUVs remains. For consumers who fall under the latter category, Lincoln offers the dated yet luxurious standard-length Navigator and extended-length Navigator L models. Available in rear-wheel-drive (2WD) and 4-wheel-drive (4WD) forms, the 2014 Navigator is powered by a 5.4-liter V-8 engine and offers up to 128.2 cu. ft. of cargo space with the second- and third-row seats folded.

A redesigned Lincoln Navigator is anticipated for the 2015 model year. Expect that model to be equipped with an EcoBoost V-6 engine.

What's New

  • Riviera Sands Metallic paint color
