Lincoln MKX
2017
Lincoln MKX 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 2.7L 4-door SUV AWD Automatic
Based on the capable Ford Edge, the Lincoln MKX is one of the best-scoring luxury SUVs in our testing. This is a quiet, refined, and high-tech vehicle. The standard 303-hp, 3.7-liter V6 feels a bit unremarkable, and the optional 335-hp, 2.7-liter turbo V6 is smooth and delivers effortless thrust. The only knock against the MKX is its rather unimpressive fuel economy of 18 mpg overall. Handling is athletic, making the MKX fun to drive. The ride is steady and composed. Tall drivers will probably find that the push-button shifter is a long reach away. The very quiet cabin feels first-class, with abundant wood, brushed metal, and leather surfaces. Convenience and safety features include automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and cross-traffic alert. First-year reliability of the redesign has been below average.

2016 Redesign Year
Lincoln MKX 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Others
Lincoln's first midsize SUV came with a smooth, strong 302-hp V8 and five-speed automatic. A standard third row expands seating to seven and folds flat into the floor when not in use. . The premium price buys lots of leather, wood, and a quiet cabin. The Aviator was discontinued after 2005. Its replacement, the car-based MKX, arrived in 2007. A luxurious version of the Ford Edge, the MKX uses Ford's 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed automatic, a combination that delivered strong performance. The ride is comfortable, but handling lacks agility. Rear visibility isn't very good. The MyLincoln Touch infotainment system on more recent versions is distracting and tedious to use. The cabin is nicely appointed and relatively quiet, but doesn't match up to the $50,000 price tag when new.

Lincoln MKX 2015 Trim Shown: 2015 Others
The 2011 redesign spiffed things up a bit, but the enhancements didn't push it into the realm of competiveness in the class. With that said, the Lincoln does have an absorbent ride, the engine delivers plenty of power, and the cabin is plush and neatly finished. But the touch-sensitive buttons make adjusting the climate, audio, and other functions a distracting and tedious nuisance. Ultimately, the MKX scores too low to be recommended.

Lincoln MKX 2010 Trim Shown: 2010 Others
Lincoln's MKX uses Ford's 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed automatic, a combination that delivered strong performance. The ride is comfortable, but handling lacks agility. Overall though, we found the MKX lacking when it comes to justifying its price premium. The Lincoln doesn't offer a third-row seat, its engine and transmission lack the refinement of other competitors, and its handling is not agile.
