When talking about a FoMoCo vehicle it’s hard to go through the options and features offered with car without mentioning the Microsoft SYNC system. Our test-drive 2010 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost is equipped with the SYNC system as standard. After spending a week with the SYNC system, we realized that there is a good reason that the feature has won so many awards. Almost every function from climate, to audio, to navigation to traffic and directions information can be enabled through SYNC’s voice activation feature.
Other technology features on the 2010 Lincoln MKS include: Collision Warning with Brake Support (automatically applies the brakes if it senses a possible accident), Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Park Assist (we’ll provide a video example later – it’s a very interesting feature that allows the MKS to parallel park itself), THX II-Certified audio system (one of the best we’ve heard), SIRIUS Travel Link, Adaptive HID Headlamps, Rain-Sensing Wipers, SecuriCode Keyless Entry Keypad (located on the side of the driver door), Forward and Reverse Sensing System, Reverse Camera System, Easy FuelTM Capless Fuel-Filler System, Rear Window Power Sunshade and Intelligent Access with Push Button Start.
The Adaptive Cruise Control w/Collision Mitigation and Brake Support will cost you an additional $1,310 over the sticker price, while the Active Park Assist will cost $535.
