Lincoln has innovated its other brands in the meantime so it appears that it is finally time to redesign the MKS.
The Lincoln MKS is one of the company’s luxury sedan models and it was highly praised already. However, the lack of lustered sales and larger popularity of other Lincoln products made this one sit on the bench for a period of time. Now it is finally ready to get back into the game.
Once they unveiled the advertisement, we finally got a full picture of the 2019 Lincoln MKS. Before that only had rumors and various pictures of the potential car and how would it look for the update. There was no solid evidence up till now.
We did get a batch of first spy photos at first while the prototype model was doing its initial testing. However, the camo was so thick that you were not able to notice what was going on underneath. Now with the new video we can see all the details that we have missed.
Firstly, it is more than noticeable that the 2019 Lincoln MKS is going for updating the exterior. It is obvious that the car is reshaping the front and rear fascia, giving the model a very modern look. The hood, the headlamps, LEDs all of it is different then before. It will feature a new kind of a look which will update the car in a specific way.
The company also announced a new set of standard equipment and possibly more technology on the inside. We can expect the revamped interior. The company is doing this to better fit the segment and rival other models.
As they promised, the updates are also in plan for the power train, as the model plans to extend its power. We can expect more energy and a better performance from the vehicle. Its fans appreciate these changes very much. In addition, there are going to be three versions on the market, with the V6 FWD, V6 AWD, and EcoBoost V6 AWD models on the line.
The prospect of updating the 2019 Lincoln MKS does seem very profitable and it will certainly be something that one needs to look into. If you want to find out more about its release date and specs, read our review.

However, we have our ways to determine the price beforehand as we always do. And it appears that the luxury sedan will start at a figure of about $43,765. Because it has been a while since the updated version of the MKS has been on the market, the price boost will be a larger one.

Also, this is just the base trim as the upper ones are expected to reach a pinnacle price of around $60,000.
