2018 INFINITI QX60 vs. 2018 Lincoln MKT | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI QX60 vs. 2018 Lincoln MKT

The 2018 INFINITI QX60 and 2018 Lincoln MKT are ultra-comfortable SUVs that are provide a premium driving experience. The QX60 has great standardized equipment, with a second row that is roomy, while the Lincoln MKT has top of the line infotainment. Which of the two should you buy?

Design & Style

The Lincoln MKT borrows its engine along with underpinnings from the Ford Flex, meaning it has a boxy shape which has aged well. It also has an extended snout with a body that is a bit lump. Within the interior the dashboard is arranged orderly, and looks best with a black color and wood that is glossy. The INFINITI QX60 has a gorgeous interior and exterior. Although large, its weight is distributed well, and its front grille is puckered with headlights that are punctuated. The chrome accents assist with the badge that floats. The nose is very similar to the INFINITI Q60 which is a good thing.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI QX60 is rich in technical features, and has done well on crash scores. Those who buy it can expect stability control, a host of airbags, and a camera for the rearview. This, along with keyless ignition, heated seats which are power adjusted, and a power liftgate give drivers an unprecedented level of control. By comparison, the Lincoln MKT lags behind a bit for the most advanced safety features. It has done well on safety tests, but does not have collision detection, which means it does not have the ability to detect an incoming crash and stop automatically. Aside from this, it has 19 inch wheels, HID headlights, remote start, and front seats which can be cooled and heated.


The INFINITI QX60 has great performance for a three row SUV. INFINITI discontinued the hybrid version, and instead focuses on QX60 models that utilize a V6 3.5 liter engine that can produce up to 295 horsepower that works in conjunction with an automatic transmission that is continuously variable. The Lincoln MKT is equipped with a dual turbo V6 3.7 liter engine that gives it outstanding acceleration, with up to 303 horsepower. Most impressive is how quiet it is during operation.

The Bottom Line

Both the Lincoln MKT and INFINITI QX60 have spacious interior, stylish exteriors and offer good performance. Unfortunately, the Lincoln MKT has controls which some drivers have described as being frustrating, and when it comes to fuel it is overly thirsty. Finally, many find the exterior to be unattractive when compared to the sleek and very elegant INFINITI, so the QX60 wins.
