Large Percentage of New Lincolns Sold With All-Wheel-Drive

Edward A. SanchezApr 29, 2011
Traditionally, Audi and Subaru have received the most recognition for having extensive availability of all-wheel-drive in their product lineups, but if Lincoln has any say in the matter, it wants to be included in the AWD fraternity too.

With the discontinuation of the rear-drive-only Town Car, Lincoln notes that all-wheel-drive is now available in all the brand's vehicles, from the MKZ and MKS sedans, through to the MKX and MKT crossovers, as well as the full-size, body-on-frame Navigator SUV.
In terms of sales mix, the ostensible Town Car replacement MKT is trending at 72 percent all-wheel-drive, followed by the MKX and Navigator, both at 62 percent, the MKS at 46 percent, and the MKZ with 25 percent.

All-wheel-drive is also an enabling technology to allow full optimization of the 355 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque produced by the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 in the MKS and MKT models. That level of power in a front-wheel-drive vehicle would likely result in poor driveability and control characteristics.
"We see all-wheel drive as a core technology option for the entire Lincoln line-up, both today and for the future," C.J. O'Donnell, Group Marketing Manager for Lincoln, said.
