Driving  - 2012 Lincoln MKT Review - Reviews - Lincoln MKT

Equipped with an optional EcoBoost turbocharged V-6 engine and all-wheel drive, the MKT hustles through town and carves up interstates like a sushi chef does tuna. It's a thrilling experience, mainly because you're piloting a vehicle that you could accurately call a boat. At 207.6 inches long, it's huge; it might not fit in your garage. It doesn't feel nimble on the road, meaning it doesn't take corners easily — you have to take the long wheelbase into account — but all that power comes on perfectly, without any turbo lag.
