Lincoln MKC

2018
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The MKC includes luxury and high-tech features, but this Ford Escape-based model falls short of the class leaders. Power is strong, particularly from the 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder, but that engine returned just 19 mpg overall in our tests. That, combined with the small gas tank, results in a short cruising range. The six-speed automatic's push-button shifter is inconveniently located far up on the dash. None of the adaptive suspension modes make for a truly comfortable ride. Handling is secure but trails its German rivals. A quiet cabin, plush trim, easy access, and decent rear-seat room enhance livability, but rear visibility is limited. Sync 3 has replaced the convoluted MyLincoln Touch infotainment system.
