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.
