EPA

2012 Lincoln MKX AWD: 17/23 mpg
EPA




Fuel economy isn't always the proudest moment for crossovers, but the 2012 Lincoln MKX acquits itself fairly well, so long as you stay on track with front-drive models.

According to the EPA, the 2012 MKX checks in with gas mileage of 19/26 mpg, at least in front-drive form. Ford uses some technical tricks to extract those numbers from the big V-6 and six-speed automatic. Variable valve timing measures fuel more carefully depending on the power needs; the fuel injectors also turn off completely during deceleration, cutting down consumption even more. Ford claims this delivers a significantly higher mileage rating than some of the MKX's competitors.

However, the edge vanishes when all-wheel drive is specified. The EPA rates this version at 17/23 mpg--something worth noting if you don't regularly encounter winter weather.

 

Conclusion

Gas mileage is good for a crossover--at least when you order the 2012 MKX as a front-driver.

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.
