Model Highlights

The new 2008 five-passenger Lincoln MKX crossover utility vehicle emphasizes on-road performance and interior space and versatility. The Lincoln MKX combines a contemporary, somewhat sporty exterior look--with large chrome wheels, chrome trim, and an arched roofline--with traditional American luxury styling cues inside. The interior is trimmed in wood and nickel, and there's a 'cool white' theme for interior lighting.

The interior is especially quiet and comfortable. The Lincoln MKX has thicker sound insulation than most other vehicles in its class, and both rows of seating are sized for full-size adults. For expanded cargo space, the back seats -- which can be reclined 15 degrees for comfort -- fold forward easily via an Easy Fold remote switch (which comes as part of an option package). There are also several useful smaller storage areas, including a center console sized for laptops. The rear liftgate has a unique lighting system featuring LEDs inside and out, surrounding the Lincoln emblem. And overhead, an available panoramic vista roof allows a significant portion of the roof to be open to the sky.

More notable standard features are satellite radio, heated and cooled front seats, front power lumbar support, a reverse sensing system, and a memory feature for the mirrors and the driver's seat. Ford's Sync system is also standard.

The Lincoln MKX includes front side-impact air bags and full-length side-curtain air bags as standard. The safety canopy system for the curtain bags assures protection during rollover situations, while the AdvanceTrac with roll stability control helps avoid those situations in the first place. Anti-lock brakes are standard as well.

Heated seats are available for the back. Other standout options include adaptive projector-beam headlamps that help illuminate into a corner, DVD-based navigation, a rear-seat DVD system with an 8-inch screen, and a 14-speaker, 600-watt THX II audio system.

There's only one engine available on the Lincoln MKX, a 265-horsepower, 3.5L V6, paired with a six-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard, and an all-wheel-drive system is optional. The AWD system has been tuned for all-weather on-road driving, and can reroute torque as needed even before wheel slippage occurs. Fuel economy on the two-wheel-drive Lincoln MKX, at 16 city, 24 highway, is good.


Value Writeup

The 2008 Lincoln MKX joins Lincoln's distinctive personality and style with a modern crossover vehicle shape, making the look and feel different than most other crossover vehicles. Aside from visual panache, the Lincoln MKX has a roomy interior, decent fuel economy, and a full roster of safety features, making it a very practical choice.


Pros

Roomy interior; ride and comfort; unique styling; available luxury features.


Model News

The Lincoln MKX, a new crossover for 2007, enters 2008 with relatively few changes. On the outside, a driver's side electrochromic exterior mirror is now standard, and three colors have been added. Inside, the standards list now includes Sirius satellite radio, heated and cooled front seats, front power lumbar support, a reverse sensing system, new metallic interior accents, and a memory feature for the mirrors and the driver's seat. Ford's Sync communications and entertainment system is also new for 2008.

A Limited Edition Package is new this year, and it includes 20-inch chrome wheels along with a host of other cosmetic enhancements.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
