2013 Lincoln MKX Exterior

2013 Lincoln MKX Overview (See Available Styles)

The 2013 Lincoln MKX is a two-row luxury crossover that competes with Cadillac SRX and Lexus RX 350.

The MKX has a similar look to Lincoln’s sedans, just taller. Up front, it gets a version of Lincoln’s split-wing grille which flows into wide headlight clusters. There are four available wheel sizes, and dual sunroofs (front and rear) are optional.

Under the hood, the MKX has one engine option: a 305-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 that it shares with the MKZ and MKS sedans. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, with all-wheel drive optional. Fuel economy ratings check in at 18/26 mpg city/highway for FWD models, while opting for AWD reduces those figures to 17/23 mpg.

Inside, the five-seat MKX has a prominent center console that feeds a high divider between the front seats. There are three LCD screens to feed the driver important information, two in the instrument panel and a larger 8-inch screen in the middle of the dashboard. They are part of the standard MyLincoln Touch system with SYNC that consolidates all of the entertainment and communication functions into one system. The two screens that flank the speedometer can be programmed to show different information, such as fuel efficiency or audio system information. Standard interior features include leather upholstery, heated/ventilated front seats, USB/iPod ports, Bluetooth connectivity, and remote keyless entry/start.

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.
