Lincoln MKX Overview

Like its Ford Edge corporate cousin, the MKX is unimpressive. Its 3.7-liter V6 provides strong performance, but the transmission is unrefined. Handling, though sound, isn't agile, and the ride is too ordinary for a luxury vehicle. Although the cabin is quiet, $50,000 should buy more silence. The MyLincoln Touch interface, which consists of a touch screen and touch-sensitive buttons, makes adjusting the climate, audio, and other functions distracting and tedious. Despite attractive wood and leather trim, overall interior quality is a mixed bag. The MKX scores too low to be recommended, and reliability has been well below average.
