Aggressive, crisp new exterior design; more luxurious interior, increased horsepower and torque; more standard features and options; the first ?button-less' interior controls in the Lincoln lineup
The 2011 LINCOLN MKX features a 3.7L V6 engine offering 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability. The model is offered in either front wheel drive or all wheel drive.
Luxury buyers love technology, and the LINCOLN MKX is no different. Ford's SYNC voice-activated entertainment system is standard. Developed with Microsoft, SYNC offers a way for drivers to access, via voice communication, a satellite-guided navigation system, traffic information and audio/visual media stored on the device or any device plugged into its USB port.
The front seats are of the heated and cooled 10-way power-adjustable variety. The rear seats split 60/40 and recline. Of course the windows and locks are power-actuated, remote keyless entry is standard, as is an auto-dimming rearview mirror and four power-points.
Standard safety features for 2011 include antilock disc brakes, a full array of airbags, traction control and electronic stability control. New this year are hill-start assist, trailer-sway control, adaptive cruise control, as well as Lincoln's BLIS blind spot information system, a remarkable system that utilizes sensors to warn the driver of vehicles hiding in the LINCOLN MKX's blind spot.
The LINCOLN MKX can be configured with several wheel choices including sizes up to 20". Heated second-row seats are available as are a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers and voice-activated navigation. A THX surround sound audio system and dual-screen DVD entertainment system are offered, as is a panoramic sunroof.
The LINCOLN MKX has been completely redesigned and technologically upgraded for 2011, marking the beginning of the second generation for the model.
Dubbed the first ?button-less' interior, the 2011 LINCOLN MKX features the MyLincoln Touch interface, which eliminates tactile buttons and knobs in favor of a network of touch controls spread throughout the dashboard. For example, two shiny horizontal bars feature controls for volume and fan speed that are activated by sliding a finger across the bars. The entire system can be voice-activated and operates through an 8-inch LCD touch-screen. Two 4.2-inch LCD screens are also in the instrument cluster and are accessed by five-position toggles on the steering column. The screen on the left displays basic vehicle data while the screen on the right acts as a multi-media interface.
All-new sheet metal from the A-pillar forward, plus a newly designed and reshaped rear gives the 2011 LINCOLN MKX a crisp look, accented by the newly adopted classic Lincoln 'dual-port' grille. The front fenders highlight the wheel arch while the rear sports tail lamps that are split, angular LED units instead of full-width. Inside, there are seven choices for ambient-lighting colors, featuring five different levels of intensity.
Debuting in 2007, the LINCOLN MKX is a midsize luxury crossover SUV, successor to the LINCOLN Aviator. The LINCOLN MKX's utility flexibility combines with true Lincoln-style luxury and lots of technology to make a fuel-efficient luxury crossover without the German car price.
