2013 Lincoln MKT: Bring Up Memories of the Classic Mustang

Available in Los Angeles at Cerritos Ford Lincoln

The automobile industry has become somewhat stale in that manufacturers are no longer being competitive to the point of innovation. But for its 2013 roster, Lincoln is proving innovation is still very much part of its work and design philosophy with the introduction of the 2013 Lincoln MKT, which Lincoln debuted at the LA auto show way back in 2011. Imagine the hype for this model after having been continuously touted as something of a “revolution”.

First and foremost, the most significant stylistic departure of the 2013 Lincoln MKT from its previous iteration is the split-waterfall grille which is now finer and looks far more polished, featuring slats that feel more elegant than before.

The decision for the change is both welcome and, in a way, expected since Lincoln has made it apparent they wanted to bring up memories of the timeless and classic Mustang with its new design. And it works!

The engine improvements of the 2013 Lincoln MKT are also no laughing matter. While Lincoln already announced that the 2013 Lincoln MKT will be shipping out fitted with a 3.7 liter V-6 engine backed by 355 horsepower and EcoBoost, which is also available in last year’s model, this year’s version of the engine comes improved with 300 horsepower as well as 275 lb-ft of torque. That’s a significant increase to the previous year’s figures, and that is only fitting for a model of 2013 Lincoln MKT’s caliber.

The 2013 Lincoln MKT is the automobile manufacturer’s proud testament to their continuous efforts of raising the bar that defines the industry standards of what is innovative and what is slowly becoming stale. No doubt the 2013 Lincoln MKT will rock the industry down to its roots when it comes out.
