Lincoln MKX Overview

Like its Ford Edge cousin, the MKX two-row SUV gets a redesign this year. The outgoing model is unimpressive. Its 3.7-liter V6 provides strong performance, but the transmission is unrefined. Handling is sound but not agile, and the ride is too ordinary for a luxury vehicle. Despite attractive wood and leather trim, overall interior quality is a mixed bag. Reliability has improved to average, but the MKX scores too low to be recommended. The upcoming redesign looks promising based on time we spent in the new Ford Edge. It should be quieter, more luxurious, and more rewarding to drive, with many tech and safety features. Most versions will use the 2.7-liter turbo V6.
