2016 Lincoln MKX review
Compared to today’s chubby MKX, the new Lincoln MKX 2016 has muscle and lithe body, with a well tapered roofline and sophisticated, long fender arches. Lincoln’s trademark split grille is perfectly performed with thin, horizontal slats that flow into similarly delicate headlight units and LED sign lights. The LED rear lighting enables an ultra-thin take on Lincoln’s full-width taillight concept, and we such as the powerful-looking pseudo spoiler that’s integrated into the liftgate simply below the window. Just like the MKC, which is based upon the Ford Escape but looks rather various, the MKX is suitably separated from its next-generation Ford Edge sibling. This is an advantage. Due to the fact that this is a concept, 21-inch wheels belong to the offer, but unlike some show vehicles, the manufacturing design could really get rollers this size. The present MKX provides wheels varying from 18 – 22 inches in diameter.
For now, Lincoln isn’t really flaunting the 2016 Lincoln MKX interior. Ford formerly revealed it would increase using knobs and buttons in its cars. This statement becomes reality in new Lincoln MKX utilizing less of the capacitive touch switchgear that controls the MKZ sedan. The Lincoln introduces the first high-end Exclusive Revel audio system in a vehicle which is named QLS (QuantumLogic Surround). The front seats are available with active motion are adjustable in 22 ways and 11 adjustable air bladders. There is the MyLincoln Mobile application that gives to MKX owners the ability to lock, unlock, locate and start their vehicle via smartphone. This big luxury crossover SUV is equipped with 360-degree camera with 12 sensors that enhances park assistance.
