The new MKS shown above is a thinly-veiled Taurus. With the new front-end, Lincoln tried to rescue-differentiate the 2 cars, but the result is still an awkward, overpriced, uncompetitive sedan. At $45-50k, there are a host of more attractive cars that are more fun to drive. The new front end of the MKS is a grave mistake; the old front-end was bland, but this new front end sets the car back 5 years. Put it up next to the Mercedes E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi A6, or even Cadillac CTS, and there is no competition.
