When Graham McKenna, the PR guy at THX, contacted me and asked me if I'd like to borrow a new Lincoln MKT SUV for a few days, I jumped at the chance. To be perfectly honest, I didn't care a whit about the MKT itself. I wanted to check out how THX and Ford engineered the sound system in the vehicle.
When McKenna arrived with the MKT, I was a little taken aback. The MKT is built on Ford's Flex platform. So although it seats up to seven people, it's relatively low slung. It is, however, long. As it turns out, the MKT isn't the car for me (even if I could afford the price tag), mostly because it seems to be engineered for fairly tall people - and at 5 foot 7 inches in socks, tall I'm not. Still, it proved to be a polished ride, and it was great fun driving a luxury vehicle that wasn't even for sale on car lots yet. Though this isn't about the car, but about the sound system.
