Lincoln ready to build big and bold SUV

21 Jan 2008

FORD has signalled its intention to build a large luxury SUV with the unveiling of the Lincoln MKT concept at the Detroit auto show – complete with an engine that could eventually wind up on an Australian-built Falcon.

According to Ford, the MKT demonstrates that the brand’s new design creed works as well on a big 4WD as its does on premium sedans like the MKS. It also features a 300kW-plus 3.5-litre ‘EcoBoost’ direct injection turbocharged V6 petrol engine that drives all four wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox.

While the first-class, four-person, Learjet-inspired interior looks to be out of the question for production, the exterior – save for the show car’s 21-inch rims – is close to the mark. Critical dimensions include 5293mm in length, 1999mm in width and 1623mm in height. It rests on a 3065mm wheelbase.
