2013 Lincoln MKS Video

For the 2013 model year, the Lincoln MKS gets a mild refresh that includes a more robust powertrain, styling updates and new interior controls. MyLincoln Touch is new to the MKS, and the multimedia system is supposed to be more responsive, Ford says. In our testing on the show floor, the performance still didn't seem as responsive as we'd hoped, according to Cars.com Industry Analyst Kelsey Mays.



The front end of Lincoln's “new design direction” looks dated and cheap, like the front of a 90s Mitsubishi. RIP Lincoln.


I dont think they are going anywhere. The MKS has serious updates here. Plus some class exclusive standard tech. Lincoln should do better in 2012. Everyone's a critic of the styling, but to me the car looks no worse than the M, E class, ES350, Rl, etc. You consider those cars beautiful?


I'm really pulling for Lincoln but I don't think a styling "tweak" is enough. I think they need to be a little more bold. However, the new Acuras are ugly as ever, the new Lexus nose is hideous and Infiniti is beginning to look like a proboscis monkey. Maybe they have a chance after all.

Personally, I think the car looks great. I also will add that everyone has different tastes. From what I can tell, Lincoln is trying to keep their past clientele, while achieving a newer, younger clientele. The car isn't ultra modern looking and isn't "old" looking...I see what they are doing and I approve!


I'll add, isn't the active grille shutters closed, hence them being "blocked off"?? Lincoln makes nothing "fake." Little more research please, Mr. Mays.

Well, the 2013 leaves a lot to be desired. The front end needs a major redesign. They could emulate the Toyota a little bit more.
