Ford Recalling 605,684 F-150s and Lincoln Mark LTs over Brake Issues

Ford F 150 Ford Recalling 605,684 F 150s and Lincoln Mark LTs over Brake Issues
More than 600,000 MY2005-2006 Ford F-150s and Lincoln Makr LTs equipped with 5.4L 3-Valve engines are being recalled due to a faulty brake booster vacuum supply hose. Over time, the hose that is attached to the intake manifold may swell and lose retention force, a condition that could allow the hose to become detached from the fitting during an intake manifold backfire.

If this happens, once the vacuum reserve is depleted drivers will no longer have power assist braking. They still will have foundation brake function, but with increased brake pedal effort –a scenario that most drivers will want to avoid. Ford is expected to begin the recall on or about July 7, 2008, but if you want to learn more, you can contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.

Battered 2009 Lincoln MKS Sedan Caught Testing in Detroit

MKS 0 Battered 2009 Lincoln MKS Sedan Caught Testing in Detroit
This bashed-up 2009 Lincoln MKS test mule (see the production model here)was caught on film by our fellow mates over at Jalopnik. The car was spotted somewhere in Detroit and as you can see in the pictures, it’s in a pretty bad shape. From the looks of it, someone must have had a slip-up as the lower front end of the MKS is missing. Still, we don’t understand the reason why Lincoln’s testers attached a tow bar in front of the car.

LA Show: 2009 Lincoln MKS

Carscoop 09LincolnMKS 0 LA Show: 2009 Lincoln MKS
Ford’s semi-luxury (…) Lincoln brand took the wraps off the production version of the MKS at the 2007 L.A. Show today. Based on the underpinnings of the Ford Five-Hundred/Taurus, the 2009 MKS will unseat the Town Car as Lincoln’s flagship model -though the latter will continue to be produced. Penned by former Volvo chief designer, Peter Horbury, the MKS aims at drawing customers under 50. Lincoln believes that up to 60 percent of those buying it will be
first time customers to the make.

To be honest, we’re not thrilled with the MKS’ looks -inside or out. The sedan’s exterior appearance is cluttered mixing Korean, American and Japanese styling cues while the interior would probably seem too vintage even to my 63-year-old father… -Continued after the jump

Under the hood the 2009 MKS is powered by a Lincoln’s new 3.7-liter V6 engine. The powertrain has been derived from the 3.5-liter V6 found in the Lincoln MKX. This engine delivers 270 HP and 265 lb.-ft. of torque and is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift. The MKS will be available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel-drive (AWD) versions. Sales will start in the summer of 2008 with prices kicking off at $38,000 for the FWD model.

Detroit Show: Lincoln MKT Concept With 340HP Twin-Turbo V6

ZMKT 00 Detroit Show: Lincoln MKT Concept With 340HP Twin Turbo V6
Here’s yet another vehicle from the Detroit Show that, like the 2009 Toyota Venza, it doesn’t know which category it wants to belongs to. Frankly, Lincoln’s MKT reminds us of an American interpretation of the Renault Vel Satis luxury sedan, and that, isn’t something we’d brag about… But anyway, Lincoln supports that the MKT Concept shows how the brand’s new design language works on a spacious luxury utility vehicle as it does on luxury sedans like the new 2009 MKS.

Underneath the MKT study features the Ford’s new 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 Ecoboost engine that delivers an estimated 340-horsepower and more than 340 lb.-ft. of torque on regular gas. If the driver uses an E85 ethanol-gas blend, then the V6 engine delivers 415 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque
