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.
