More capable braking system

More capable braking system  - Overview - Lincoln MKT

To match the engine's extra power and the suspension's additional handling capabilities, Lincoln has significantly upgraded the MKT braking system for 2013. The new vented front discs measure 13.86 inches (352 millimeters), more than an inch larger than 2012. To enhance brake cooling, the "hat" portion of the front brake disc is also vented, a unique design developed by Ford Motor Company.

Additionally, the diameter of the rear discs increased 0.58 of an inch to 13.58 inches and the discs are now vented. Brake pad area and total swept area increased significantly, with each improvement working together to improve braking performance, reduce brake fade under heavy use and provide the driver with a more direct and linear braking feel.
