Lincoln: What's coming in 2010 -- and beyond

CONFIRMED FOR 2010

MKS: Lincoln's flagship will get the 3.5 liter "EcoBoost" V6, which uses a turbocharger and direct fuel injection to deliver a V8-like 355 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. EPA fuel economy estimates are expected to be 16 MPG city and 25 MPG highway for the all-wheel-drive MKS with EcoBoost -- compare that to 16/23 for the 2009 MKS with 273 hp.

MKT: (photo) The MKT is a sharp-looking three-row luxury crossover intended to fit in between the MKX and the Navigator. Optional features include a panoramic glass roof and Lincoln's first self-parking system, which allows the MKT to steer itself into a parallel parking spot. Engine choices mirror the MKS: A 273 hp 3.7 liter V6 (with front- or all-wheel-drive) and the 355 hp 3.5 liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6 (all-wheel-drive only).

MKZ: (photo) Like it's mechanical siblings, the Ford Fusion and the Mercury Milan, the MKZ gets an extensive makeover for 2010. Outside, the MKZ gets the now-familiar split grille and updated taillights. But the biggest changes are on the inside, where the MKZ gets an all-new (and vastly improved) interior. Under the skin you'll find more sound insulation and a new (optional) sport-tuned suspension.
