Launched in 2010, the all-new MKT offered a luxurious and premium crossover SUV that could seat seven, powered by a robust 3.7-liter V6 engine that was rated at 268 horsepower. Notable updates for the 2011 model year included a voice-controlled GPS system with a 36-month subscription to the Traffic Directions service. The EcoBoost model was reduced in price by $3,000 in 2012, and the all-wheel-drive model was discontinued with no other major changes for this year. A lengthy list of changes were made to the 2013 model. The engine was upgraded to offer more power, increasing horsepower to 303 overall. A new style graced the front end, and a new gauge cluster and steering wheel complemented the interior. New safety features were also introduced, including the rear seatbelts, which could inflate, and a new collision and lane departure assist and warning system. The MKT cruised into 2014 basically unchanged from the previous year.
