SlashGear tests out a Lincoln MKS-Part 1

In addition to the daunting task of testing out a FyreTV, I was also given the assignment of test driving a Lincoln MKS on my vacation in California. Yes, I am that dedicated. The Lincoln MKS is the mid-size luxury sedan with all of the fixings. Hand-stitched leather seating, duel climate control, a powerful engine, All Wheel Drive, and most importantly (to this publication anyway) Microsoft Sync and the GPS.

When Ford contacted us about the vehicle, we were told to focus on a specific item and write about it, make videos, and Tweet about it. I took some time to familiarize myself with the workings of the vehicle and the Sync capabilities, and then made a video about it. I have to admit, Microsoft did something right with Sync. The integration of my Bluetooth MP3 player and my phone was flawless, and enabled me to eliminate the wires entirely (though the option is still there) when playing my music and making calls (handy in California where you have to go hands-free). I could sit here and describe everything in detail, but that's almost as much fun as watching me clumsily explore the menus and work the system.

The video isn't an in-depth overview, but it's the first of a few more to come as I test out the MKS more in the coming days. I apologize for my tendency to ramble; I always think I'm funnier than I actually am. Be that as it may, here's the video as promised, and some lovely photos for you.
