2009 Lincoln MKS

The design is unique to Lincoln and doesn’t really borrow from any other brands of the moment. One of the advantages of this grille design is the space between the two halves that allows the Lincoln logo to stand on it’s own without being lost in the chrome.
Lincoln-exclusive fuel-efficient 3.7-liter V-6 and all-wheel drive provide smooth driving. It is the first vehicle to offer Ford’s new gasoline TDI engine technology which provides the power and torque of a V-8 engine with the fuel efficiency of a V-6.
