2014 Lincoln MKX Overview
- Two row, five-seat luxury midsize crossover
- 305-hp, V-6 engine
- MyLincoln Touch with SYNC standard
The 2014 Lincoln MKX luxury midsize crossover offers some of the latest in-car technology from Ford/Lincoln and a new Limited Edition package for 2014 that has leather upholstery with contrasting stitching/piping for a unique cabin look and feel.
The MKX competes against vehicles like the Lexus RX 350 and the Cadillac SRX. Its look is similar to many of the other members of the Lincoln lineup, with the signature split-wing grille up front, liberal use of chrome in the fascia, and slanted front and rear windows. 18-inch wheels are standard, with 20- and 22- inch cogs optional. A dual-pane moonroof is optional, with a power-opening front and a fixed rear.
Under the hood, the MKX shares its only engine option with the MKZ and MKS sedans, a 305-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 that is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional. Fuel economy ratings are on par with most of the segment; 18/26 mpg city/highway for FWD models, 17/23 mpg for models with the optional AWD system.
Inside, the five-seat MKX has a prominent center console that feeds a high divider between the front seats. Standard interior features include leather upholstery, heated/ventilated front seats, USB/iPod ports, Bluetooth connectivity, and remote keyless entry/start.
The strength of the MKX interior is its technology offerings. 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 information, while the center stack is covered in touch sensitive controls for the climate and audio systems.
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.
