Lincoln Drive Control:  Standard on the EcoBoost version of the Lincoln MKT, this adaptive driving experience gives the vehicle a balance between an engaging drive and a refined ride. The adaptive Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) suspension and Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) enable Lincoln Drive Control to adjust to road conditions instantly.
 
Performance and Fuel Economy:  The 2013 MKT has two engine options that offer a great combination of fuel economy and power: the new standard 3.7L TiVCT V6 with 303hp and 278 lb. ft. torque (17 City/25 Hwy), and the optional 3.5L EcoBoost, with 365hp and 350 lb. ft. torque (16 City/22 Hwy).
 
Inflatable Safety Belts: The 2013 MKT has available second row inflatable seat belts, a luxury automotive industry first. Lincoln considered the needs of children and elderly passengers when designing this feature. The inflatable seatbelts spread the impact of a crash across more of the body, reducing the chance of injury
 
Design: The 2013 Lincoln MKT was redesigned from the windshield forward, with a brand new grille, headlamps and fog lamps.  This redesign brings to life Lincoln’s focus on elegant design.
 
Additional Features: Heated steering wheel, Sync with MyLincoln Touch, and lane keeping system (all new for 2013). Standard heated and cooled 12-way adjustable front seats, adjustable pedals, and a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel.  2013 MKT seating surfaces feature standard Bridge of Weir leather, which can also be found in luxury jets, yachts and on the chairs in Scotland’s House of Lords.  The MKT continues to offer an available refrigerated console in the second row that can hold up to seven 12 oz. cans, four half-liter bottles, or two 20 oz. bottles in cool or freeze mode
