How to Reset Your Lincoln MKS Tire Pressure TPMS Sensors – The MKS is a full-size luxury car produced by Lincoln since 2009 only in the four-door sedan version. MKS appeared for the first time as a concept car at the Detroit Car Show in January 2006. This concept car was full-wheel drive and had a 4.4-liter V8 Volvo engine powered by 315 hp of power. MKS then joined production in May 2008 for the model year 2009. The public presentation of the car produced in series was, however, dated 2007 and took place at the LA car show.

The model followed the tendency of Lincoln to designate its models with three-letter abbreviations. In fact, MKS was preceded by MKZ and MKX. This strategy was dictated by the need to provide its models with a name similar to that of the Cadillac and that of contemporary German cars. The MKS can accommodate up to five passengers and is assembled exclusively at Ford’s Chicago facility.
