For dynamic and smooth shifting, the Lincoln MKX features transmission controls on the center instrument panel. Pressing the “S” button puts you in the Sport mode for an enhanced performance feel. You can enjoy a more engaging, sporty experience by using the paddle shifters located on the steering wheel. This streamlined approach frees up usable space between the driver and front passenger seats, and enhances the clean, uncluttered appearance that characterizes the interior design.
Discover an impressive combination of power, efficiency and quietness. The available Twin-Turbocharged 2.7L V6 engine is ready for wherever the road takes you, delivering 335 hp and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. In creating this engine, our engineers were mindful of fuel efficiency as well as sound, designing it to be remarkably quiet. The result? An EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of 25 mpg.
Simply stated, available adaptive steering adjusts how much the vehicle responds to the driver’s steering wheel input in order to turn the front wheels. It works by analyzing vehicle speed and driver steering information. That information is used to automatically adjust the firmness of the steering wheel to produce smooth and precise steering. This system delivers an agile connected feel at high speeds and reduces driver effort at low speeds. To create an even more tailored driving experience, drivers can choose to set their preferred steering setting between Normal, Comfort and Sport modes.
Shortcuts don’t apply. An impressively energetic driving performance is matched by impressive fuel economy. The 2018 Lincoln MKX with the 3.7L Ti-VCT engine boasts an EPA-estimated rating of 17 city mpg and 25 highway mpg. And unlike some crossovers, premium fuel is not required, which could help you save at the gas pump.
An available hands-free power liftgate gives you access to the rear cargo area even when your hands are full.
HID headlamps with LED accent light bars come standard on the Lincoln MKX. These bulbs last longer and use less energy than conventional halogen bulbs. The available adaptive full LED headlamps, shown here, help give the driver a broad field of light. Featuring LED technology with adaptive forward lighting, they illuminate in sync with the vehicle’s steering to cast light across a wide stretch of road.
It’s easy to breathe in the beauty of the outside world. The available panoramic Vista Roof® spans both rows of seating, allowing for abundant sunshine and refreshing breezes. The front roof panel is powered for easy opening and closing, and includes a power sunshade to help keep the interior cool and comfortable on warmer days. Elevate your journey and take in the scenery.
Create an inviting, strikingly luxe environment when you opt for the genuine wood trim in high-gloss Brown Swirl Walnut or Espresso Ash Swirl open-pore wood. These unique wood trims further embellish the center console, steering wheel and door appliqués.
Ultra-Comfort front seats with active motion offer a wide range of adjustability. With 11 independent air bladders, seven of which offer massage, these seats can help decrease muscle fatigue, aches and pains to help keep your focus where it should be—on the road ahead.
Capable of understanding voice commands, SYNC® 3 is our latest in voice-activated technology. And with its easy-to-use design, interface and features, it’s definitely worth talking about. Experience voice-activated technology. SYNC®. Say the word®.
The Lincoln MKX is equipped with the standard Personal Safety System, which includes dual-stage front airbags, front safety belt pretensioners and safety belt energy-management retractors, a crash severity sensor, driver’s seat position sensor, restraint control module, Front-Passenger Sensing System and front safety belt usage sensors.
Rear outboard inflatable safety belts, shown inflated, feature strapping that help distribute crash force energy across more of the torso than a traditional safety belt. This can help reduce the risk of injury while providing support to the head and neck. In the event of a frontal or side crash, inflatable safety belts hold the passenger in the appropriate seating position, helping to reduce risk of injury. These safety belts are also compatible with most child-safety seats.
