AdvanceTrac with four-wheel ABS, traction control and electronic stability control (ESC) includes a brake assist feature. If you apply the brakes quickly, brake assist senses this and provides maximum braking efficiency faster than you can. It can shave precious feet off of stopping distances during emergency braking events.
Available Intelligent all-wheel drive (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.
The standard 3.7L V6 features the technology of twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) that contributes to fuel efficiency or power output, as conditions demand.
It happens on occasion – you’re coming around a curve (of a freeway ramp, for example) a bit too fast. So you’ll be glad to know that the Lincoln MKS comes with Curve Control, an enhancement to the AdvanceTrac® electronic stability control system. 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.
Ground level is now more stunning.

The fixed rear skylight provides an expansive view for passengers in the rear seat. There’s also a power rear sunshade that helps keep the interior cool.
Full LED taillamps illuminate faster and are brighter than incandescent bulbs. They also use less electrical current, which extends the life of the flashers.
The standard rear view camera provides a video image of the area behind your car on an 8-inch color touch screen. Color bars help you judge how far behind your objects are. The system works in conjunction with the standard Reverse Sensing System by alerting you with audio tones while you’re backing up.
The available voice-activated Navigation System with SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link features voice-guided turn-by-turn directions as well as 3-D mapping and points of interest displayed on a vibrant 8-inch LCD touch screen. With SiriusXM® Traffic and SiriusXM® Travel Link, you’ll get detailed traffic information, plus current and forecast weather, gas station locations and prices, sports scores and schedules, and theater locations with movie listings and times. And that’s not all. The Navigation System includes HD Radio™ technology with iTunes® Tagging and the THX® II Certified Audio System.
A cold steering wheel is a thing of the past with the available heated steering wheel, easily turned on or off with the icon on the standard 8-inch touch screen.
Individual and unique, standard Bridge of Weir® leather seat trim from Scotland is free of brand marks and other imperfections, allowing a striking presentation of the beautiful material. The Bridge of Weir organic tanning process produces environmentally sustainable by products, and the leather itself can be recycled at the end of its life.
Available adaptive cruise control (ACC) functions just like traditional cruise control, but with one exception: When the system is activated, its sensors can detect traffic slowing ahead and slow your vehicle to maintain the distance you’ve set. When traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes at the preset speed. Collision warning with brake support (included with ACC) can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
The available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert helps make driving more convenient. It uses radar to identify if a vehicle is detected 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 you as you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.
