You need utility, but a new upscale SUV seems stale, done, “so 1996.” So you’re probably shopping for a ritzy crossover vehicle then, something like a Lexus RX or a Nissan Murano — something front- or all-wheel-driven, something with nice luxury touches, something not too expensive.

 

Add Lincoln to the list, while you’re at it, because the new MKX takes on those crossovers with a dash of American style covering a well-conceived cabin, a strong powertrain, and good road manners. It’s in some ways identical to the new Ford Edge — mechanically similar, mostly — but in terms of style, it’s a cut above.

 

The mid-size MKX is Lincoln’s first crossover. It replaces the Ford Explorer-based Aviator, which never sold well and as TheCarConnection said, looked too much like the larger Lincoln Navigator. The MKX joins the also-new MKZ sedan and ’07 Navigator as an integral part of Lincoln’s three-pronged strategy to get back into the thick of the luxury-car catfight for customers — a fight it’s been sitting on the sidelines of for at least the past couple of years.

The MKX is a much more appealing vehicle than the gussied-up Explorer/Aviator ever was. It offers five-passenger seating, a standard 265-horsepower V-6 (among the most powerful in this price and class; it also runs on regular 87 octane unleaded), a six-speed automatic transmission and a dramatic, panorama-style Vista Roof. It comes in either front- or all-wheel drive, just like its target competitors from Lexus and Nissan.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
