  • The Lincoln MKS is a full-size luxury sedan from the Lincoln division of the Ford Motor Company. The MKS first appeared in concept form at the North American International Auto Show in January 2006 with the production version, a 2009 model, appearing later at the Los Angeles International Auto Show in November 2007. The MKS began production in May 2008 with sales beginning a month later. The Lincoln MKS continues Lincoln's three-letter nomenclature for new models, preceded by the MKZ, MKT, and MKX. The purpose of the new nomenclature was to mimic the alphanumeric naming schemes used by other luxury brands like Cadillac and products of the major German manufacturers. The MKS is based on Ford's D3 platform, which is shared with the current Ford Taurus and other vehicles. The car is front-wheel drive with optional all-wheel drive. The MKS is powered by a 3.7 L Duratec V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. An optional EcoBoost 3.5 L twin-turbo, direct injection V6 is also available. The MKS can seat up to five people. The MKS debuted with a base MSRP of US$38,465, ranging up to US$48,835 when fully optioned. The Lincoln MKS is built at Ford's Chicago Assembly plant.
