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, while 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 and the ride is steady and composed. Tall drivers will likely find the push-button shifter a long reach away. The very quiet cabin feels first class, with abundant wood, brushed metal, and leather surfaces. Convenience and safety features include a 360-degree camera, parking and lane-keeping assist, cross-traffic alert, and automatic braking. First year reliability of the redesign has been below average.
