Big seven-seat crossovers with near-luxury nameplates: who can keep track of them all?, that's who. In the past few weeks, we've spent time in nearly all the vehicles in this niche promising lots of personal space, lots of longing stares and lots of passenger-distracting gadgets. There's the Volvo XC90, the Buick Enclave, the Audi Q7, and the latest edition of the 2010 Acura MDX--one of TheCarConnection's favorite big crossover utes, this year freshened with new features and a new grille, which we reviewed for you last week.

Sidling up to all of them is the voluptuous 2010 Lincoln MKT, a sensual remix of the ultimate two-box carryall, the Ford Flex. With the Flex's strengths in passenger room and all-wheel drive intact, the new 2010 MKT ladles on glamorous, engaging sheetmetal and even more techno-geeky features along with a new turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 with 355 horsepower. At its core, the MKT is a Flex for those less attracted to the GE Monogram aesthetic.

It's upgraded, for sure, but is the MKT upgraded enough to carry the Flex's top ranking to the top of the luxury crossover class? Or does the refreshed Acura MDX have the momentum to walk away from the pack again?

That's our cue at to compare cars, and let you know which one tops our numeric rankings.

  1. The fact that the MDX needs premium gas to make 300 bhp is kind of annoying considering how Ford's ecoboost makes more power, better fuel economy AND uses regular fuel. However, although I've heard the quality levels of Ford products are on par with Honda, I'm still not completely convinced. And I'm sure many other buyers will be considering that.
