  • 2015 Lincoln MKC



The brand new MKC is Lincoln’s first entry into the luxury compact crossover SUV division of vehicles, a popular segment in the Detroit, Michigan area. Constructed on the platform of the Ford Escape, the five-passenger MKC shows off its inimitable interior and exterior styling in addition to a wide spectrum of Lincoln specific mechanical upgrades that give it higher amounts of sophistication and achievement. Having a far more youthful persona than any current Lincoln model, the 2015 Lincoln MKC faces off against key Vehicle rivals such as the Buick Encore, Acura RDX, and the Audi Q5. Obtainable in Premiere, Select and Reserve trims, it provides purchasers the option of two EcoBoost engines, front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. According to reviews, this vehicle is a good match for you if you want a trendy small crossover SUV that provides allure, great comfort, smooth ride, and an array of luxury features. This vehicle may not be for you if need roomy rear-seat accommodations and/or an SUV with a good amount of cargo space. The MKC rivals will suit your needs better in that case.

The drive of the MKC feels competent and assured, while cruising down a highway. Developed mainly for on-road driving, the MKC has a wider base track along with a lower center of gravity than its Ford Escape cousin and contributes to its surefooted character with unique suspension/steering calibrations. Front-wheel Torque Vectoring Control and standard 18-inch tires improve grip while limiting body roll. The behind-the-wheel experience will get better still using the available Continuously Controlled Damping system, which is standard on the all-wheel-drive models, and allows on-demand fine tuning from the chassis. The Continuously Controlled Damping system works together with the Lincoln Drive Control to permit the option of Comfort, Normal and Sport shock absorber configurations.

The Lincoln remix increases the weight by about 200 pounds, so the 2.3-liter/AWD MKC model tips the scales at over 4,000 pounds. The extra weight does slow the acceleration a bit yet all versions of the compact SUV model tend to handle all daily driving demands well. Standard on all MKC models is Active Noise Control which connects using the SUV’s sound system to create a welcome sound of peaceful quite in the cabin.
