Lincoln amplified it. Exaggerated it. Embellished it. They took an ugly Santa Claus sweater and ironed on snowman appliques.
The MKS has other problems, though. It’s big inside, yes, but it’s huge outside. The gargantuan exterior doesn’t pay off inside to the degree you’d expect. With just two extra inches of length, the Mercedes-Benz S350 BlueTec has 18% more interior passenger volume.
The 365-horsepower EcoBoost six-cylinder is only as eco-friendly as the 402-horsepower V8 in the Mercedes-Benz E550 4Matic.
The Lincoln MKS is far from pretty. Sadly, it’s not as roomy as it could be, not as powerful as it should be, and not as fuel efficient as they lead us to believe it might be.
