Lincoln Confirms: No Extended MKS Sedan

Posted on January 31, 2014

DEARBORN, Mich. -- Lincoln Limousine & Livery Vehicles has told livery vehicle dealers nationwide that Ford Motor Co.  does not plan a factory-authorized extension of the Lincoln MKS livery sedan.

The memo, distributed to dealers to be shared with customers, states, "We do not plan a factory authorized second-row extension version in the near future."

Craig Hall, manager of the Lincoln livery program, sent the memo to all QVM, dealer and livery accounts in response to a few questions it has received about the MKS product line. Hall, who gave LCT permission to publicize the contents of the memo, distributed it this week to ensure dealers and the limousine industry have the correct information.

The MKS livery sedan officially became part of the the Lincoln line-up of livery vehicles last  year, and Lincoln debuted the vehicle at the 2013 International LCT Show in Las Vegas. The Lincoln MKS joins the Lincoln MKT Town Car and the Lincoln Navigator SUV as the official factory-authorized OEM vehicles for the chauffeured transportation industry.

    Both the MKS and XTS are mid size cars. The drawback to both is dramatically reduced rear seat legroom. The XTS has very good front seat legroom, whereas the MKS does not. Also, the rear doors on both vehicles do not open almost 90 degrees as they do on the Town Car, and both have a very short step in. This means you have to be a contortionist when entering and exiting. Cadillac is bringing out a true full size car soon, Lincoln has not announced any plans to do so. This means that the reasonably priced sedans that are available are the XTS-L at $54K, and the Equus. at 50K. The Equus is the better car, and 4K less than the XTS. And once we are able to get past the brand snobs, it will be a popular car.
