Just like its sibling, the Lincoln MKS, the MKT gets an updated grille and more power for the 2013 model year. Lincoln says the base 2013 MKT will generate 300 horsepower. That’s a 32-horsepower increase when compared with the 2012 model. An adaptive suspension system is included on models that carry the optional EcoBoost engine, which carries over unchanged. Pricing has yet to be announced, but Lincoln expects the 2013 MKT to hit dealerships in spring 2012.
