LOTS TO LOVE ABOUT THIS LARGE LUXURY LINER
2012 Lincoln MKT Reserve (with Ecoboost)
The MKT is a crossover variation of Lincoln's Town Car, the American automaker's well-known flagship sedan (and stretched limousine). It was ranked by U.S. News as one of the top five best luxury mid-size SUVs for several years including 2012 -- which says a lot -- especially when you consider the competition which includes Acura MDX, Infiniti JX/QX, Volvo XC90 and Mercedes-Benz GLE/M-class.
Powered with authority by a signature fuel-efficient 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 Ecoboost engine that puts out 365 horsepower (which rivals many V8s), this crossover doesn't break a sweat as it muscles its 3 rows of passengers to their destination. The cabin is classy, quiet and spacious and the ride is smooth as silk.
As the original window sticker indicates (see photo), this MKT is fully loaded with an impressive array of the latest advanced safety, tech and entertainment options including:
-Power Panoramic Vista Roof
-THX Certified Premium HD Surround Sound with 10 speakers
-Touchscreen Navigation System & DVD Multimedia control center with Voice Commands
-Rear Entertainment System with Dual 7" headrest LCD Displays
-Reverse Direction Traffic Monitoring
-Lane Departure Alert
-Active Parking Assist -- this SUV is able to parallel park itself!
-Surround-view parking camera
-Power folding AND reversing 3rd row seat -- you can turn the seats around and have a tailgate party!)
-Second row captain's chairs offers easy access to third row
-Premium black leather interior
-Heated power mirrors w/ memory
-Heated AND cooled 12-way power front seats w/ memory
-Heated second row seats
-Tri-zone auto climate control
-Adaptive Cruise Control
-Premium 20" wheels and rims
-Light package with illuminated kick plates
-Keyless entry and remote start
-Ample cargo space
-Powerful 3.5L V6 Ecoboost engine w/ 6-speed automatic transmission + paddle shifters
-Solid fuel efficiency for an SUV of this size, up to 24 MPG with premium grade "91" gas.
This 2012 model belongs to the most recent generation of MKT's which means that it is, for the most part, the same car as the MKTs being produced today. Lincoln has made few changes to the MKT over the years. If anything, this particular MKT is more fully loaded than the typical MKT.
Having never owned a Lincoln prior to this one, I didn't know what to expect at first but I decided to give it a shot based on the many favorable reviews that I read. That turned out to be a great decision because the MKT is such an excellent all-around vehicle.
If you are a family or group of 4-6, I would encourage you to consider this MKT for your next trip; I think you will be as impressed with it as I am. You really can't go wrong in choosing this MKT for cruising around town or crossing the country with family or friends. With its suite of advanced safety features, excellent entertainment amenities and polished performance, it is hard to find fault with Lincoln's flagship crossover.

A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS FROM EVERY BOOKING IS DONATED TO CANCER RESEARCH
I've lost some of the most important people in my life to cancer and I don't know anyone who can't say the same. We've all been impacted in some way by this seemingly cruel and unforgiving disease. Often times it seems that to call it a "fight" against cancer is being extremely optimistic. It's really no contest, right? Cancer is winning by a landslide, a touchdown, a knockout, yes? Well kinda, so far, but the truth is that we are making progress every day and lives are being saved in significant numbers. I'm not in the medical field but I do know that we all have to fight together if we are going to give cancer any kind of a battle at all. One major way to contribute and to make a difference is in the form of donations to cancer research.
In honor of my late father, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends that I've lost to cancer, I am donating a portion of the proceeds from every booking to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation. This does not in any way affect how my vehicles are priced in Turo. It's just my own little way of paying it forward since there is nothing I can do to bring back those I've already lost.
