is finally set to enter the luxury crossover market with the carlike MKX. While this vehicle was originally rumored to be getting the Aviator name — as it replaces the more trucklike Explorer-based Aviator — Lincoln has instead decided to go alphanumeric with its upcoming vehicles.

The MKX will share its basic unibody platform — derived from that of the Mazda6 — with the Ford Edge crossover, and it will be powered by a new 250-hp, 3.5-liter aluminum V-6, paired only with a new six-speed automatic transmission. The engine has mechanical valve lifters and variable intake valve timing for top efficiency and performance. The engine and transmission were designed together, and the transmission uses a multiple-clutch system for better shift refinement. A road-oriented all-wheel-drive system actively transfers torque to the rear wheels as needed, and from side to side. Riding on a fully independent suspension, the MKX’s underpinnings use a hydro-isolated subframe in front and a four-link rear setup with control blades and outboard-mounted shocks.


Four-wheel disc brakes and anti-lock brakes are standard, as is the AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control system, an enhanced version of stability control with improved side-slip control. Six airbags are standard, including side-impact bags for front occupants and side-curtain bags, with the Safety Canopy system for side impacts and rollovers.


Lincoln boasts extensive sound-absorption techniques in the MKX for a quiet interior. The model has thick side glass, a laminated windshield, sound-deadening material inside exterior trim, and an extra layer around the rear wheelwells.

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.
