Spy Shots Show a (Nearly) Wedding-Ready Lincoln MKT Stretch Limousine
Lincoln's MKT is up for the challenge of shuttling countless brides, grooms, prom dates, and well-heeled bankers; that is, if you can believe the spy shots we've found of a stretched Lincoln MKT Livery.
With the death of the late Lincoln Town Car, Ford Motor Company has promised to elevate the MKT crossover to the job: in various forms, the MKT will replace hired, or "black cars," and can be stretched for flashier limo duty. Our friends at Automobile snagged a couple of shots of a parked MKT stretch limo which looked a bit unfinished -- it appears to still be in powertrain and chassis testing -- somewhere in Michigan.
The finished product will feature Ford's corporate 3.7-liter V-6, which can be mated to either front- or all-wheel drive. Seeing how large this particular prototype is, we can imagine that the all-wheel-drive system's rear driveshaft must be really, really long.
Lincoln wasn't available for comment on when exactly the MKT in prom night-ready form will go on sale, but we can reasonably to expect these cars to litter bachelor party parking lots within the year.
