The middle row seatbelts optional on the MKT inflate when a collision is detected, helping to spread crash forces over a much larger area of the body and limiting head and neck movement. This can help prevent spinal and internal injuries. The QX60 doesn’t offer inflatable seatbelts.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the MKT. But it costs extra on the QX60.

Both the MKT and the QX60 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, blind spot warning systems, rearview cameras, rear cross-path warning, available collision warning systems, lane departure warning systems and front parking sensors.

There are over 4 times as many Lincoln dealers as there are Infiniti dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the MKT’s warranty.

To reliably power the ignition and other systems and to recharge the battery, the MKT has a standard 200-amp alternator. The QX60’s 150-amp alternator isn’t as powerful.

To reliably start during all conditions and help handle large electrical loads, the MKT has a standard 650-amp battery. The QX60’s 550-amp battery isn’t as powerful.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Lincoln vehicles are better in initial quality than Infiniti vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Lincoln 7th in initial quality, above the industry average. With 9 more problems per 100 vehicles, Infiniti is ranked 14th.

The MKT’s 3.5 turbo V6 produces 70 more horsepower (365 vs. 295) and 80 lbs.-ft. more torque (350 vs. 270) than the QX60’s 3.5 DOHC V6.

The MKT has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The QX60 doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

For better traction, the MKT’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the QX60 (255/45R20 vs. 235/65R18).

The MKT’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the QX60’s standard 65 series tires. The MKT’s optional tires have a lower 45 series profile than the QX60 Luxe’s optional 55 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the MKT has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the QX60.

The MKT has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The QX60’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

The MKT has a standard driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The QX60’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

The MKT’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The QX60 doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the MKT’s wheelbase is 3.7 inches longer than on the QX60 (117.9 inches vs. 114.2 inches).

The MKT executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver quicker than the QX60 AWD (28.4 seconds @ .59 average G’s vs. 29.3 seconds @ .56 average G’s).

The MKT has .8 inches more front legroom, .8 inches more rear headroom, .1 inches more rear legroom, .1 inches more rear hip room and 2.2 inches more third row legroom than the QX60.

Flexibility is maximized at the game, campground or a drive-in theatre in the MKT when its tailgating rear seats are deployed, allowing people to sit facing out of the liftgate. (Do not use while vehicle is in motion.) The QX60 doesn’t offer tailgating seats.

The power windows standard on both the MKT and the QX60 have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the MKT is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The QX60 prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

In case you lock your keys in your vehicle, or don’t have them with you, you can let yourself in using the MKT’s exterior PIN entry system. The QX60 doesn’t offer an exterior PIN entry system, and its extra cost InTouch Services™ can’t unlock the doors if the vehicle doesn’t have cell phone reception or the driver can’t contact the service.

The MKT’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The QX60’s standard intermittent wipers change speed with vehicle speed, but can’t turn on and off or change speed based on changing rainfall.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the MKT has standard adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The QX60 doesn’t offer cornering lights.

The MKT has standard front air conditioned seats and offers them optionally in the second row. This keeps the passengers comfortable and takes the sting out of hot seats in summer. The QX60 doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats for the second row.

The MKT has a standard heated steering wheel to take the chill out of steering on extremely cold winter days before the vehicle heater warms up. A heated steering wheel costs extra on the QX60.

The MKT Reserve’s optional Active Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The QX60 doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
