KBB Editors' Overview

By Matt Degen - Updated Date: 9/9/2014

The 2015 Lincoln MKX is a 2-row, 5-passenger luxury crossover SUV that vies for attention in a segment that includes bestsellers such as the Lexus RX, Audi Q5 and Cadillac SRX. The MKX is based on the Ford Edge but separates itself from its mainstream sibling with upscale amenities that include leather seating, climate-controlled seats and a strong V6 engine. Starting just under $40,000, the MKX is priced similar to rivals but is well-equipped and simple to build and option. The MKX may have some appeal as an American luxury SUV (though it's actually made in Canada), but there's no denying that this Lincoln is showing its age compared to newer rivals that have better fuel efficiency, easier-to-use technology and more advanced safety features.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're seeking an American-branded midsize luxury SUV and the Cadillac SRX doesn't suit your style, the Lincoln MKX could be the upscale hauler for you. The MKX also impresses with a standard V6 and creature comforts such as heated/ventilated front seats and leather interior that cost extra in competitors.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you want the higher fuel efficiency that comes from a hybrid, diesel or smaller engine, look beyond the MKX to a Lexus RX, Audi Q5 or Acura RDX. Rivals also boast safety systems like pedestrian detection and automatic braking (Volvo XC60) and cutting-edge technology (Audi Q5) that the Lincoln can't match.

What's New for 2015

With an all-new Lincoln MKX likely not far off, the 2015 model carries over unchanged.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2015 MKX's road manners are similar to its personality in general: It's not jaw-dropping in any particular category, but it also doesn't fail in any of them. Acceleration, handling and comfort are above average, though not best in class. When equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD), the MKX shuns the torque steer sometimes evident on the front-wheel-drive (FWD) models, which can feel like the steering wheel is tugging away from your hands. The optional AWD system also lends an added measure of safety on slick roads and in winter driving. The MKX’s high seating position is appreciated, although we can’t say the same for the long dash that impedes forward views. Lincoln's premium crossover SUV is most happy at highway speeds where it cruises effortlessly and quietly. The bigger wheel and tire options (20 and 22 inches) somewhat improve handling but also return a firm ride that we don’t think is worth the trade-off.

Favorite Features

Included on mid- and top-trim versions of the MKX, Lincoln’s blind-spot monitoring system is an important safety feature that can help avoid collisions with traffic out of the driver’s line of sight. The system also features rear cross-traffic alert to warn of approaching vehicles when you're backing up.

Usually an expensive option on most luxury SUVs (if offered at all), the MKX comes standard with front seats that can keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
