Lincoln, a Ford division, greatly aims for a great climb and out of its parent’s shadow with its attempt of revolutionizing its models. Let us start with the 2016 Lincoln MKX which offers two engine variants and four flavors– remiere, Select, Reserve, and Black Label.
In all due fairness, Lincoln’s effort made MKX revving against the big wheels like Porsche Macan S, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-class.
What Lincoln offers
Lincoln offers quite hefty of options to choose from for its 4 trims. Needless to say, customers can select from: panoramic sunroof, wheel upgrades (18-inch, 20-inch and 21-inch), towing package and camera & sensors add-ons.
As we said earlier, you have two engine options which are the 3.7L V6 and the twin turobocharged and intercooled 2.7L V6 that can be available at $2000 extra. You may also get the AWD variant if you add $2495.
On the Road Test
MKX is more comfortable and suitably quiet as tested on the road, with the best of it if the 22-way adjustable massaging seats (worth $1500) are incorporated. Not only that, the interior has amazingly improved starting with its wood trimmings and fully carpeted cargo hold.
Electrically assisted steering grasps enough linearity and preciseness which is a signature of Ford. With the Sports mode activated, things go tough—albeit nicely so—and the ride experience much better.
