Lincoln today officially introduce the MKS, the sorta full-size luxury sedan which, according to Lincoln, will be the flagship for the brand, taking over that role from the Town Car. And who, exactly, are they kidding? It is a V-6. Worse, that’s all it’s ever going to be. Word is that the V-8 planned for later is no longer planned for ever. It’s been cancelled.

With prices starting at $37,665 for the FWD version and $39.555 for the AWD version, the 2009 Lincoln MKS redefines the American luxury. Next to the other new models from Lincoln, the MKZ sedan and MKX crossover, the 2009 MKS wants to bring the Lincoln brand into its right place on the luxury market. And as a proof there are the 8,600 pre-orders that have been placed for the full-size luxury sedan. The question that remains is" Can the 2009 stand in front of its biggest competitors: Lexus GS series, Infiniti’s G35 and Cadillac’s CTS. That remains to be seen.

Lincoln MKS

The 2009 MKS made its official debut at the Los Angeles auto show and sales will begin this summer. It is offered in two different versions: FWD and AWD and it’s design cues are inspired by past Lincolns models, but in a very modern way. Among those cues, Lincoln ’s signature double-wing grille, first seen in production in 1941, and more recently applied to the 2007 MKR concept car.

The Lincoln MKS is powered by a Lincoln exclusive new 3.7-liter V-6 engine. The powertrain has been derived from the proven 3.5-liter V-6 found in the Lincoln MKX, which was voted one of Ward’s 10-Best Engines for 2007.

The 3.7-liter’s larger cylinders contribute to the increase in horsepower and torque. This engine delivers 273 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. of torque and does not require premium-grade fuel.

The 3.7-liter is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift® that delivers smoother shifts, better fuel economy and acceleration as well as enhanced performance feel. SelectShift, making its Lincoln debut on the MKS, allows the driver to manually select gears by moving the gear selector to the right and pushing forward to downshift and pulling back to upshift. As an added benefit, the six-speed allows the MKS to be flat-towed to a maximum speed 65 miles-per-hour.

The AWD system works in conjunction with the standard AdvanceTrac stability control system to provide additional stability by transferring torque from side-to-side.
