Lincoln's touch-screen navigation is superb
A giant 27.3- by 29.4-inch optional forward sunroof
Kelley Blue Book
A reverse-sensing system to make parallel parking easier
The 2008 Lincoln MKX keeps things simple with its one trim level, but it does offer some of the more typical luxury-vehicle options.
The standard features list on the Lincoln MKX is quite long, and Kelley Blue Book refers to the Lincoln MKX as "nicely-equipped." Edmunds claims that the Lincoln MKX 2008 "comes with more standard features than its pricier competitors," highlighted by "Ford's impressive new Sync system," which "allows for drivers to control communication and entertainment devices...via voice commands," and a "reverse parking system." While many reviews read by TheCarConnection.com loved the standard loadout of the Lincoln MKX 2008, reviewers at Cars.com find that there are "substantial oversights," most notably the lack of "xenon headlights, rearview cameras and cargo covers."
For those looking for optional equipment, the 2008 Lincoln MKX does offer what Autoblog calls a "superb" touch-screen navigation system and an upgraded 14-speaker THX-certified audio system that leaves those at Autoblog "very impressed" with the acoustics aboard the Lincoln MKX 2008.
Cool standard features abound on the 2008 Lincoln MKX, and the option to take this car even more upscale is there, but the lack of a rearview camera like that on the Lexus RX 350 is disappointing.
