Luxurious, comfortable cabin; lots of optional equipment; available all-wheel drive; new, turbocharged engine.
The biggest change to the Lincoln MKX is the newly available 2.7L twin-turbocharged V6. While the 3.7L V6 from last year is still available, the new, smaller, turbocharged unit is more powerful, making 330 hp. And while that's only a 30-hp increase over the bigger 3.7L engine, the new turbocharged unit makes much more torque, resulting in an engine that feels significantly more muscular, particularly in the midrange. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission that sends power to either the front, or to all four wheels.
The Lincoln MKX is only available in four basic trims. Both front-wheel and all-wheel drive models can each be matched with either the 3.7L V6 or a 2.7L turbocharged V6. The Lincoln MKX can be loaded up with all sorts of interesting and innovative optional features as either part of an equipment group or a la carte.
Standard features on the Lincoln MKX are numerous as well of course. Standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, cruise and audio controls mounted on a leather wrapped steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, soft touch seating surfaces, heated front seats, a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat, a 10 speaker sound system with a subwoofer, SiriusXM satellite radio, push button start, 18-inch wheels and Ford's SYNC system.
A Select equipment group adds LED daytime running lights, power folding side mirrors, leather seating surfaces and a hands free powered liftgate. The Reserve equipment group upgrades further with a huge powered moonroof, 20-inch painted wheels, a navigation system, heated and cooled front seats, adaptive headlamps and an in-car modem.
Other equipment packages include a drivers assistance package with adaptive cruise control and a lane departure warning system, a luxury package with a 19-speaker stereo and LED headlights and a technology package with parking sensors, a 360-degree camera and park assist.
Standalone options on the Lincoln MKX are also quite extensive and allow buyers a high degree of customization for their vehicle. A 22-way power adjustable driver's seat should allow for nearly infinite adjustability and be comfortable for a multitude of body types. A headrest mounted DVD system and heated rear seats are available and should please rear seat occupants, while a heated steering wheel and the previously mentioned 19-speaker stereo are also available as standalone options.
The Lincoln MKX returns for 2016 with fresh, sculpted styling, an improved chassis and a brand new turbocharged engine. The luxurious crossover has been given a complete redesign, making it better than ever at moving people around in comfort. With a quieter cabin and a new Revel-powered premium sound system, the Lincoln MKX should be faster, more comfortable, smoother and more efficient than ever before.
The Lincoln MKX starts at below $40,000, pricing it in competition with other entry level luxury SUVs and crossovers. The Lincoln MKX seats five and should be able to handle most light off-roading situations buyers might find themselves in, provided they splurge on the optional all-wheel drive system. The Lincoln MKX strikes a nice balance in terms of size-- it's big enough to be considered roomy on the inside, but not so big that it poses a challenge to pilot in the city.
