The 2010 Lincoln MKT has earned top ratings for frontal and side-impact crash tests conducted from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).


Lincoln’s three-row luxury crossover previously earned a 2009 Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).


The all-new MKT features Ford’s Trinity Front Crash Body Architecture as well as Side Protection And Cabin Enhancement Architecture (SPACE) to optimize side-impact occupant protection. Also available is Ford’s Personal Safety System, which combines combining multiple technologies to tailor the air bag package and safety belt functions to the individual passenger and the accident circumstances.
