My kids have had so much fun in the Lincoln MKT this week. Elijah, my 6 year old wanted to do a video review from a kid’s perspective. It’s actually a really good video. Check it out.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5qvXucgTxE[/youtube]
Rear View Camera on Lincoln MKT
What Elijah likes the most is the rear view camera which comes standard on the Lincoln MKT. He just thinks it is cool that there is a “spy camera” as he calls it located on the back of the car.
I’ve never had a Rear View Camera on a car before so I wasn’t sure how much I would use it. I quickly became comfortable and thankful for this wonderful feature. The video image of the entire area behind the car appears on the 8 inch color touch screen. There are even guides that appear on the screen to help you navigate your way. This has been so helpful pulling out of our driveway. I’m embarrassed to say that I have hit the side walls of our drive way with my car more than once. Not with the Lincoln MKT, if I get too close, an alarm sounds (I tried this just for the review!). And, if a car or person appears in the path of the rear view camera, an alarm sounds.
Active Park Assist
Another feature that the Lincoln MKT has that I think is amazing is the Active Park Assist which is parallel parking assistance. There are so many times that I pass up good parking spaces simply because I don’t want to deal with the frustration of parallel parking. Ugh! The Lincoln MKT Active Park Assist makes parallel parking quick and easy. It even tells you before you try to park the car if it will fit! Amazing! The car steers you right into the spot. I was floored at how easy it was.
Stay tuned for more exciting features the Lincoln MKT has to offer with my Lincoln MKT Week in Review.
