Classic American Luxury in a Stylish Wrapper
The Lincoln MKX is finally coming into its own, as it's the most luxurious MKX to date. The attractive two-row compact SUV has amenities that make it more competitive with SUVs from Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Cadillac and Audi. Along with 22-way-adjustable heated and cooled leather seats, the roomy, quiet MKX offers posh touches like seat massagers, 19-speaker audio and a panoramic moonroof.
"When equipped with the 355-horsepower twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter GTDI V6, the 2018 Lincoln MKX is quite a sizzling performer. Having more than 100 lb-ft additional torque versus the standard 3.7-liter V6, the turbo engine delivers the kind of power required to move this 4,300-pound SUV with urgency, especially when passing or merging."

Lincoln MKX Shoppers Also Look At
MKX owner and KBB.com visitor jhu6569 mentions a lot of positives with the MKX, including: "New Ford/Lincoln SYNC3 system is very easy to use. Cabin noise at all speeds (and yes we have already tried "all" speeds) is very very quiet. Handling as described by the general kbb review - a great long-distance cruiser." The only negative mentioned about Lincoln's SUV: "Only really slight negative is the rather pedestrian gas mileage, but even this is contra-indicated by the car's use of Regular 87 octane fuel."
