The redesigned Lincoln MKX being unveiled today takes much of the same formula that led to a successful first year for the MKC crossover and applies it to a larger package, at a time when utility vehicles are booming.
Lincoln says the MKX will arrive in U.S. dealerships this fall, followed by China and other markets. Its exterior, which its chief designer described as “less wedgy” than the first-generation MKX, closely resembles that of the MKC.
Inside, the MKX contains two new Black Label customized themes and the first in-vehicle audio system from Harman International’s high-end Revel brand, as part of a new 10-year partnership with Lincoln.
It’s the first Lincoln to offer a number of technologies, including adaptive steering, precollision assist and a 360-degree camera. A front camera deploys when needed from behind a retractable Lincoln star badge in the center of the split-wing grille.
