2016 Lincoln MKX

 

Following in the footsteps of its redesigned 2015 Ford Edge cousin is Lincoln’s midsize MKX crossover. The luxury make’s signature “winged” grille is backed by swoopier sheetmetal, a redesigned interior, and a host of new features.

Available on the new MKX are some items cribbed from other Ford Motor Company vehicles, including a hands-free liftgate (opened by swiping your foot under the rear bumper) and a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 projected to produce an impressive 330 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque, both well in excess of the current MKX‘s returning 3.7-liter V6. Other new features include a panoramic sunroof, 360-degree camera system with washers (a camera in the grille extends to provide a 180-degree view when pulling out between walls or vehicles), and massaging front seats with deflatable side bolsters for easier entry and exit.

CG Says:
If nothing else, the redesigned MKX indicates that Ford is making a strong effort to save its struggling luxury brand. We’ve been thoroughly impressed with Lincoln’s new compact crossover, the MKC (enough to award it a Best Buy rating in its class), so we’re looking forward to driving its bigger brother. Particularly noteworthy here are the front seats’ deflatable side bolsters–something that at least seems like a good idea (we haven’t been able to try them)–and the extending front camera, both of which might eventually spread to other vehicles in the FoMoCo stable.
