Blogworld Expo – 2010 Lincoln MKT Test Drive

Not every company exhibiting at Blogworld Expo in Las Vegas is blogging related. As a matter of fact, the 2009 Blogworld featured an extremely diverse group of companies. They range from half hour meals to the Ford Motor Company. What’s an auto maker doing at a blogging show? For the same reason as every other exhibitor. Bloggers have money and Ford wants a piece.

Ford brought along a nice sampling of their vehicles for the attendees at Blogworld to test drive, including a Mustang GT and the new 2010 Lincoln MKT. This is a cross over based on the Ford Flex. The MKT features lots of high tech gadgets, like pedal shifters, push button engine start, voice command, automatic self parking and a 3.5L EcoBoost engine that produces 355 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s a lot of power for a cross over. Watch the video to see if we brought the car back in one piece.

  1. I am definitely going to be visiting the Half Hour Meals website frequently. Nice car by the way!

  2. What is the cost of this car John …

    1. John Chow says:

      It starts at $44,200US. With all the options, our test MTK pushed the price to over $50K.

      1. And which car you have right now at Vancouver and what is the cost of that 🙂

        1. I remember a post about a Ferrari, John commented he wanted to buy it… 😛

          Here is it.

      2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

        If this car exports to my country, the cost would be $100k+, so you can see how many percentage the government charge for it.

        1. Benjamin Cip says:

          Does John own a Ferrari?! lol

  3. Great ride John!

    The bip when parking can be really annoying when you listen it 4 to 5 times per day 😀

  4. S Ahsan says:

    That car is sick 🙂 i love it when it does all the reversing itself! sweeet!

  5. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    Wow that’s cool, auto parking man, I’ve never saw such car in my country, but I’ve saw such car in TV before, and John you drive it now!

    John, are you going to get one for yourself too? 😉

    1. John Chow says:

      No I don’t plan on buying one. It’s too much like a station wagon for my taste.

      1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

        lol! So you prefer Ferrari right John?

        I always think that normally bigger car is for those has many family members.

      2. Yea, that what I just thought. It looks like styles are going backwards to the 1970’s & 80’s.

  6. Chrome Bulbs says:

    If only this car came with Chrome Bulbs standard, THEN it may be worth getting. 😉

  7. EarningStep says:

    nice car… this is what you a blogger want after have tons of money on their pocket , right ?

  8. videostar says:

    A nice car just for testing mot for driving…

  9. Money-Era says:

    Very nice car.Will buy one for my wife 🙂

  10. Not bad looking, but it reminds me of the old style station wagons you don’t see any longer like the one in National Lampoon’s Family Vacation.

  11. gps mount says:

    Slick looking ride. Time to get those rolled out to the dealerships and hit the streaes!

  12. The autopark feature is pretty impressive. I was expecting a drift video based on “see if we brought the car back in one piece.” What was the drive train? RWD?

    It would have been awesome to see a video of you scaring the pee out of all the passengers by drifting.

  13. The car reminds me of the UFO Acura TL 😀

    -Mike

  14. “automatic self parking” ??? Now that was scary! SY

  15. fas says:

    The parking is cool but cars cheaper then this come with the same feature.
