Lincoln has done a good amount of something to the 2013 Lincoln MKS redesign. This car is not a remake, but instead a heavy refresh like those applied to several Ford and Lincoln products of late. Freshened for 2013, the MKS is Lincoln’s biggest passenger car, offered with front- and all-wheel drive.
The 2013 Lincoln MKS has been given a mid-cycle refresh that includes upgraded power, a newly refined suspension and a restyled beak. The 2013 Lincoln MKS also gets a thorough makeover, from a more powerful standard engine to some sophisticated new safety systems. Let’s take a look deeper while we are testing the car.
First the exterior, the 2013 Lincoln MKS comes with a revised grille, hood, front fenders, headlamps, front fascia, deck lid, rear fascia, LED taillamps and exhaust tips, plus new 19- and 20-inch aluminum wheels. Everything forward of the A-pillars has been re-skinned. The new grille of the2013 Lincoln MKS does the automotive equivalent of wearing a pinstriped shirt which make the car a bit thinner.
The grille is still a little too intense for us, and most of it is unnecessary. Take a look at these 2013 MKS photos, there’s more visual depth up front, taking your focus off the car’s bulbous rear flanks. Look close, and half of the upper and lower inlets give way to solid pieces behind. Front-end sheet metal is also new, with a redesigned hood and adaptive headlights while the redesigned taillights, a new decklid covers, and an expanded trunk are in the rear of the 2013 Lincoln MKS.
Inside the 2013 Lincoln MKS interior, the biggest news is the installation of the latest MyLincoln Touch system, which places a pair of screens in the gauge cluster, a corresponding pair of directional pads with which to control them on the steering wheel, and a large touch screen in the dash.
The Lincoln MKS is the latest candidate for MyLincoln Touch, which has been upgraded this year and the result is it’s works faster and has more readable fonts, and Lincoln reverted to a physical button for the hazard lights. Among the 2013 Lincoln MKS interior enhancements are a new instrument panel, optional heated steering wheel and choice of new woods and leather colors.

The mechanical changes for 2013 are even more significant, as the 2013 Lincoln MKS benefits from a host of suspension tweaks and more power. The optional 365-hp Ecoboost V-6 carries over but the new 2013 Lincoln also has an optional 304-hp 3.7-liter V-6 borrowed from the Ford Mustang, which bumps up the fuel economy while torque climbs from 270 to 275 pound-feet.
Meanwhile, the EcoBoost 3.5-liter engine will continue to output 355 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. This is the most powerful V6 among the 2013 Lincoln MKS competitors producing 45 more horsepower than the Audi A6′s optional supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and 55 more horsepower than the BMW 5-Series‘ optional turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6..
The 2013 Lincoln MKS now offers better standard highway mileage than the 2012 Acura RL, Cadillac STS and Mercedes-Benz E350. Additionally, the Lincoln engine produces its power using regular unleaded fuel, not premium as required by some manufacturers, including Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
