L.A. Auto Show: 2013 Lincoln MKS facelift revealed image

After presenting the 2013 MKT crossover at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, the North American based automaker Lincoln has decided to use the same automotive event in order to show its 2013 MKS facelift.

Lincoln says that the 2013 MKS facelift comes with a revised front fascia, a new grille and HID headlights, while the rear bumper has been modified, along with the exhaust tips and the all-new fitted LED taillights. On the inside we can find an eight-inch touchscreen display, a new instrument cluster, revised trim in Prussian Burl and Brown Swirl Walnut, heated and cooled front seats as standard while the heated steering wheel comes as an options.

“The original MK vehicles were, in some ways, deliberately provocative. The styling of the new MKS adds both refinement and elegance to the car while lowering and widening the front end. The continuous bright surround linking the grille and headlamps is particularly rich and adds something significant to what is already an expressive, balanced design”, said the Lincoln Design director, Max Wolff.

Just like its crossover “big brother”, the 2013 Lincoln MKS comes with a choice of two engines: the 3.7 liter V6, upgraded to generate 300 horsepower and 275 lb-ft (372 Nm) of torque, an increase of 26 HP and 5 lb-ft (7 Nm), with improved fuel efficiency of 19 / 28 mpg city / highway FWD and 18 / 26 mpg AWD, and the 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 with its 355 HP and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system.
