2013 Lincoln MKX Overview
Revised for the 2011 model year, Lincoln's MKX luxury crossover received updated exterior styling, new technology features and a more powerful V-6 engine. The five-seat MKX competes against the Cadillac SRX and Lexus RX 350.
New for 2013
The MKX can have newly available 22-inch polished aluminum wheels while the Sync entertainment and communication system adds Operator Assist and Wi-Fi capability.
Up front, the MKX has a version of what Lincoln calls its "split-wing grille." The grille doesn't overwhelm the front of the crossover like the design does on Lincoln's MKT full-size crossover. Exterior features include split taillights use inward-facing LEDs and 18-inch wheels. 19-, 20- or 22-inch wheels are offered, and a forward sunroof and a fixed rear moonroof are optional.
The MKX's dashboard features a flowing design that blends smoothly into the center console and utilizes upscale touches such as stitching along some seams.
Ford's entertainment and communication system, dubbed MyLincoln Touch in Lincoln models, is standard in the MKX. The system aims to make all of your communication and entertainment sources easy to control while driving. To do this, MyLincoln Touch features an 8-inch touch-screen in the middle of the dash, five-way steering-wheel controls, USB ports, an SD card slot and an instrument panel with a traditional analog speedometer flanked by two customizable LCD screens.
The system can be operated by voice commands and touch-sensitive controls. The touch controls for audio volume and ventilation fan speed each feature a horizontal plate, and you slide your finger left or right to lower or raise the volume/fan speed. Standard interior features include leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and remote keyless entry and start. Options include a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel and heated steering wheel.
Under the Hood
The MKX features a 305-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. It uses regular gas and comes with either front- or all-wheel drive.
Standard safety features include four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control and Curve Control, side-impact airbags for the front seats, and side curtain airbags. A blind spot warning system is optional.
