Available Active Park Assist is designed to help make parallel parking a breeze. While driving slowly near parking spots, simply activate this feature and it scans for available spaces. Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance between parked cars. Once a spot is identified, you're signaled to stop and accept the system's assistance. All you do is control the shifting, accelerating and braking.
Available adaptive cruise control functions just like traditional cruise control — but with one important difference. When forward sensors detect traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes its set speed. Forward collision warning with brake support can alert you if it senses a possible collision with the car in front of you. A red light flashes to simulate brake lights and provides an audible warning. If you don't react in time, the brakes will precharge and provide full responsiveness when you do apply them.
Available Intelligent AWD uses sensors to constantly monitor traction. It balances torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction—typically before wheelslip can even occur, giving you a more confident ride.
Experience confidence and comfort behind the wheel with an adaptive suspension and electric power-assisted steering (EPAS). The adaptive suspension in the MKT adjusts the suspension quicker than you can blink an eye. Plus, you can choose one of three ride modes: Comfort, Normal or Sport. EPAS provides an easy, fluid steering feel at low speeds, and a firmer, more controlled feel at higher speeds. It also constantly adapts to changing road conditions and compensates for irregularities caused by factors such as a crowned road surface and crosswinds.
It happens at times to the best of drivers: unintentionally drifting out of the driving lane. That's when you'll appreciate your Lincoln MKT equipped with the available driver-activated Lane-Keeping System
The available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert helps make driving more convenient than one may expect. It uses radar to detect a vehicle in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind your vehicle as you're slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.
The Lincoln MKT has three separate driver memory settings. With the push of a button, side mirrors, seat position, steering wheel and power-adjustable pedals return to their set positions.
It happens on occasion - you come around a curve a bit too fast. That's why you'll be glad to know that the Lincoln MKT comes with Curve Control, an enhancement to AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™. If it detects that you're entering a curve too quickly, it will apply four-wheel braking, while also employing throttle reduction, to help reduce your speed.
Considering the amount of time drivers and passengers spend in a vehicle today, one of the most critical components in a comfortable ride is its seating. With first- and second-row leather-trimmed seats, first-row power adjustability and a range of second- and third-row configurations, the Lincoln MKT offers a custom and comforting experience.
A second row that doesn't play second fiddle. With three seating options and generous second-row leg room, second-row passengers will appreciate all that the Lincoln MKT can provide. The standard bench seat provides heated outboard seats, and the available bucket seats offer heating and cooling. The bucket seat configuration provides room for either a pass-through or an available refrigerated center console.
Genuine wood trim adds warmth and character to the MKT. The Charcoal Black interior comes with rich and dramatic brown swirl walnut, while Hazelnut and Light Dune interiors feature the intricate patterns of Prussian burl.
