Whether you opt for the base or Reserve trim level, the 2020 Lincoln MKT will offer plenty of luxury. Large luxury crossover is once again available, despite the rumors about the end of production. Lincoln confirmed that this wagon-like crossover will continue with sales.
Interestingly, MKT is used for fleet buyers and for funeral hearses. Lincoln said this model has its own purpose and a role to play. However, sales are nowhere near the Aviator model. The 2020 MKT crossover comes with a room for seven passengers and it offers a turbocharged V6 engine. However, changes and upgrades for 2020 are minor.
The upcoming 2020 Lincoln MKT comes with a strange appearance but it looks modern and attractive. This crossover looks premium and it offers up to eight different exterior colors. However, the 2020 model will offer the same palette as the current model.
Exterior paints that are included are Tinted Clearcoat, White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat, Ruby Red Metallic, and Ivory Pearl Metallic Tri-Coat. Moreover, you can opt for the Black Velvet, Blue Diamond, Ingot Silver, Burgundy Velvet Metallic and Iced Mocha Metallic.
2020 Lincoln MKT Trim Levels
The all-new 2020 Lincoln MKT will be available in two trim levels, base, and Reserve. No matter which trim level you opt for, a seven-seat configuration will remain. Also, both trim levels are using the same V6 engine. Standard features for the base model are still luxurious.
For instance, 19-inch alloy wheels are standard, along with the adaptive headlights and auto high beams. A panoramic sunroof will be standard too. A couple of systems that are standard on the base model are keyless ignition, remote engine start, and a power liftgate.
From the inside, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats and heated steering wheel are standard. An 8-inch touchscreen is in the offer and safety rating will be great. Reserve trim level is even more premium. It offers a 20-inch wheels, more safety equipment, ventilated second-row captain’s chairs, and a second-row refrigerator. Also, Reserve model is available with the standard tow package.
The large crossover will arrive with the same engine as its predecessor. The 2020 Lincoln MKT offers a 3.5-liter V6 as the only engine option. This twin-turbo unit is producing 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is rated at 15 mpg in the city and 21 on the highway. That means the crossover delivers 17 mpg combined.
A 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission is in the offer. The adaptive suspension provides better agility and more pleasant ride. Generally, ride comfort is exceptional, transmission acts smoothly and the engine is quiet. Also, an intelligent all-wheel-drive setup is standard.
2020 Lincoln MKT Price and Release Date
The price of the forthcoming 2020 Lincoln MKT will start at $50,000. The MKT Reserve will cost slightly more. This large luxury crossover will go on sale later in 2019. As we already wrote, Lincoln confirmed the MKT model will continue with the production in the future.
