2011 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost

Next Generation Lincoln MKS Could Pack Smaller EcoBoost, 9-Speed Transmission

Ford Motor Company is expected to roll out the next generation Lincoln MKS within the next couple of years and when the new Ford luxury flagship arrives – it may feature a new EcoBoost V6 and a 9-speed automatic transmission that could make it one of the most efficient non-hybrid luxury cars on the market.

According to the folks at Car & Driver, the next generation Lincoln MKS is due out in later 2015 as a 2016 model year vehicle and when it arrives in roughly two years, it will add yet another EcoBoost engine to the Ford family of powerful yet efficient engines. However, rather than fitting the 2016 MKS up with some variant of the EcoBoost’d 4-cylinder mills already at work in the likes of the Ford Fusion and the Ford Escape – the range topping Lincoln will pack a new, smaller EcoBoost V6.
