The 2018 Lincoln MKX 2018 has chic interior, but we want its most advanced security technology available at a lower price.
The 2018 MKX can share its foundations and engines with the Ford Edge, but only its profile recalls this mass market crossover. In its details, the MKX delight with soft notes of chrome and a voluptuous and sinuous style. A large two-wing grille occupies a considerable share of real estate, but it’s a look that Lincoln has abandoned on his Continental flagship.
The MKX’s cockpit goes further from Ford with large dash shapes and the minimal use of cutting lines that help draw eyes to the center console. What is not there is perhaps the most notable: there is no shifter, an ergonomic quirk that seems to answer a question that no one poses. Instead, you will find buttons along the central stack to control the transmission.
The MKX offers excellent seating for four passengers and its interior generally feels appropriately upscale. Premiere trim levels are covered with synthetic leather, while genuine leather is included on MKX Select and above. Some of the more decadent options include a 19-speaker Revel brand audio system and panoramic panoramic sunroof. However, Lincoln limits the most advanced safety technology, such as automatic emergency braking, to the Reserve and Black Label trim levels alone, where it is an expensive option associated with others. anticollision equipment. Most rivals make this equipment standard.
It is powered by a 3.7-liter V6 with 305 horsepower or a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, bolted to a six-speed automatic. Front wheel drive is standard; Intelligent All-Wheel Drive with Advance Trac and Roll Stability Control is also available.
