The Lincoln MKS – Likely To Acquire Enhanced Features Soon
The Lincoln MKS; a full size luxury sedan by Ford Motor Company, is likely to be presented with a fresh and new look by the year 2011.
For this purpose, designers are focusing primarily on the front and rear surfaces, along with few internal spots.
It is being said that an engine upgrade is also expected in 2010 model of the MKS, where the 3.5 liter Twin-Turbo V-6 Eco Boost engine will replace the existing 3.7 liter V-6.
The upcoming engine will be producing upwards of 340 lb-ft of torque from 2000-5000 rpm, whereas, the current engine is rated at 273 hp and 270lb-ft of torque.
Fuel economy will boost by 20% without compromising performance level. The MKS 2010 Eco Boost is expected to deliver more power and improved fuel-economy level than any of its competitor vehicle.
“We are committed to delivering fuel economy leadership in every new vehicle,” said Derrick Kuzak, Ford’s group vice president of Global Product Development. “We do this with affordable technology that can be applied to the widest number of vehicles.”
A smaller grille and redesigned backlights are also expected in this forthcoming model.
The MKS was introduced in concept form in January 2006, at the North American International Show. The car appeared in product form in November 2007, at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.
This sedan has entered into the market only few years ago, but has earned a great deal of appreciation from the automobile industry. Upcoming innovations seem to further increase its market value and fan following.
