Lincoln, the luxury car division of Ford Motor Company is expected to take the market by storm when they release the much awaited 2016 Lincoln MKS. This vehicle has been creating quite a buzz in the market even way before its release. Lincoln has always been synonymous with luxury but the MKS offers a lot more with superb level of performance and rigidity. Manufacturing of Lincoln MKS started in 2008 and in 2009 the first model was released on road. From beginning only it was claimed to be successor of the Lincoln Town Car, therefore there is always a lot of expectation surrounding this car. 2016 Lincoln MKS is classified under full size luxury sedan and it’s available in basic 4-door body with engine in front. You will get both options for front wheel drive and all wheel drive. It is currently in its first generation of production but the 2016 version is expected to be of a totally different level.
2016 Lincoln MKS: Redesign Exterior and Interior
Lincoln traditionally goes for big and imposing designs for their sedans. 2016 MKS is going to be no different. It would have minor modifications to its design but the basic exterior model would remain quite same. It would be built of the Ford Taurus platform which is running quite successfully. On close observation one can see some structural similarities with Ford Explorer and Ford Flex. According to speculation there might be an increase in net weight of the vehicle.
New Lincoln MKS will have quite similar design in front and rear section as its predecessor. It would have a slot like grille which would be split horizontally in the centre where company logo would be displayed. There would be a strong chrome accent to the vehicle.
Not much has yet been revealed about the interior design of new Lincoln MKS. But being a Lincoln vehicle you can be sure that you won’t be disappointed when it comes to luxury or comfort. It would certainly maintain its standards by providing top quality leather upholstery in its seats. There would be features such as multi zone climate control, rear view camera, etc.
Even though 2016 Lincoln MKS is a top notch vehicle it would face some stiff competition in the market from vehicles such as Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, Lexus ES, etc.
