2016 Lincoln MKX

The 2016 Lincoln MKX is about to change an image of the too expensive crossover. Lincoln had a problem, because buyers could afford much better vehicles, luxury brands from Japanese or European carmakers, or simply pay way less for SUV with same characteristics. Now, it is time to improve settings and design and to lower the price, everything as a part of transformation and awakening of the fallen US company. Lincoln was uncompetitive in last 10 years, and now with a wave of new vehicles, among them Lincoln MKX 2016, they will try to catch up with competition.  Tough task, but they are serious in their intention.

2016 Lincoln MKX redesign

MKX concept was presented in Beijing at this year’s car show and based on what we have seen there, we can predict what to expect from Lincoln MKX 2016. We assume that most of design parts will be used for production model. That includes grille, hood lines and side panel creases. We saw attractive vehicle, and 2016 Lincoln MKX gets into premium crossovers. From other exterior features, highlights are 21-inch wheels, LED lights and floating roof spoiler. It was announced that 18- and 20-inch wheels will be also available for lower trim levels. New generation comes in few trims with many optional packages. Lincoln plans to add one trim to 2016 MKX lineup – premium Black Label edition.

2016 Lincoln MKX engine

Current engine, a 3.7-liter V6 is very certain to feature in 2016 MKX. We are confident that vehicle will get V6, but we will see if company is going to add more options. It is also possible, since current mileage is not for bragging. Improvements are needed for 21 mpg rate for FWD models, and 19 mpg for AWD. Since new Lincoln MKX is about to be similar to new F150, it could get 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 placed in Ford’s vehicle. Front-wheel drive system, as well as AWD as optional, remained available. Hybrid version of 2016 Lincoln MKX is unconfirmed, but some turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine could be paired with electric motors.
