Introduction

I purchased my MKT with 20,000 miles at a price thousands below what competing vehicles would cost. After significant research, I don't think there is a better choice out there if you want 7 passenger seating, decent gas mileage & luxury features-- Unless you have a really large budget.

Why the 2011 Lincoln MKT?

Interior styling

Interior is roomy, luxurious and quiet. Sure, there are more luxurious vehicles out there, but not near this price point.

Price or payments

I purchased used with 20,000 miles. I did a significant amount of research and found nothing else that combines seven passenger seating, good fuel economy (for a larger vehicle), great luxury and amenities, interesting styling (I like it, some certainly do not) even close to this price point.

Exterior styling

You could pay much more for a BMW, Mercedes, Acura, Lexus etc. and see 50 just like yours during your daily commute. I prefer not having what everyone else has while still having a stylish, luxurious, fun car.

Why Not the 2011 Lincoln MKT?

Driving position & visibility

Visibility both front and rear takes some getting used to. The backup camera and parking aids are standard and a must for backing up and the rear view mirror somewhat impedes my vision out the front. I am 6'2" and this may not be as much a problem for shorter drivers.

Conclusion

Definitely not the car you want if you are afraid of not being like everyone else. I can go days without seeing another one on the road (I'm good with that but not everyone is).
