2011 Lincoln MKS Spied: Slightly new look for automaker

Wed, 04 Mar 2009

The Lincoln MKS sedan hasn't been on the market all that long, but Ford Motor Co. designers are locking down a freshening, likely for the 2011 model year.

The bulk of the changes will happen to the front and rear fascia, and to some interior trim. These spy photos show a new grille that is somewhat smaller than the current car--and, dare we say--looks a bit BMW-esque.

There will be redesigned taillights, too, but those are well concealed on this prototype.

The MKS gets an upgrade in the engine compartment this summer with the installation of the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 EcoBoost engine for the 2010 model year. That engine will be rated at 355 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.

The EcoBoost V6 replaces the current 3.7-liter V6 used in the MKS. That engine is rated at 273 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.
