Most comfortable vehicle I've ever owned.

This vehicle met all my expectations.Comfort, Reliability, Space, Luxury. Also the price wasn't to bad either. Great dealership.(Nick Mayer Lincoln). The luxury of the leather seats, panoramic sunroof, was beyond my expectations.

Nicest luxury car I’ve ever owned.....

Car has performed flawlessly so far and I especially love the performance for a larger car.....the technology is equal or above all the others. Just love the car!!!

Trophy Ride

We bought this for comfort, style, and driveability - especially for 300 mile trips or longer. The ergonomics and performance were great - comparable to the Jag we had previously with the benefit of the room and drive height. Great in heavy rain and light snow and just miles of mindless desert.

2017 Lincoln MKX Overview


The 2017 Lincoln MKX is a mid-size luxury SUV that seats 5 passengers. It competes with the Cadillac XT5, Lexus RX 350, and Acura RDX. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

Four trims are available: the Premiere, Select, Reserve, and Black Label.

The MKX retains Lincoln’s signature winged grille. The body lines are sleek and minimalistic. At the rear, the MKX features a taillight cluster design that stretches across the liftgate. LED taillights, a dual pipe exhaust system, and heated/powered side mirrors come standard. HID headlights, LED daytime running lights, power/heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, and a hands-free power liftgate are also available.

Under the hood, the MKX is powered by a standard 300-hp, 3.7-liter V-6, but the exciting option is the new 335-hp, 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 that offers more power and better fuel economy. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive (FWD) or optional all-wheel drive (AWD). Fuel efficiency ratings for the 3.6-liter models are an EPA-estimated 17/25 mpg city/highway (FWD) and 16/23 mpg (AWD). The ratings improve to 18/25 mpg (FWD) and 17/24 mpg (AWD) for the 2.7-liter models.

Inside, the MKX has a premium leatherette interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The center stack features the standard SYNC 3 multimedia system that includes an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and USB ports. It can be upgraded with an integrated navigation system and a Revel premium audio system. Standard features include power/heated front seats, remote vehicle start, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, and active noise control. Venetian leather upholstery, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and a rear dual-screen entertainment system are optional as well.

Standard safety features include a backup camera and an SOS-post crash response alert system. Available features include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, a blindspot monitoring system, rear cross traffic alert, a 360-degree camera system, and an array of sensors for automatic parking systems that can parallel park, perpendicular park, and even steer you out of a parking spot.
