Expert Quotes:

2012 Lincoln MKX FWD: 19/26 mpg
EPA

2012 Lincoln MKX AWD: 17/23 mpg
EPA




Crossover vehicles don't always do well in the EPA's gas mileage rankings, but the 2013 Lincoln MKX posts above-average numbers--at least, in front-drive form.

The EPA's official numbers for the latest model year put the front-drive 2013 MKX at 19/26 mpg. To get those strong numbers from a tall, heavy vehicle with a large-displacement V-6, Ford unleashes some engineering tricks on the powertrain. The engine's fuel injectors shut off completely during deceleration, trimming fuel consumption; the variable valve-timing system also tailors its fuel delivery to the amount of power requested.

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

Front-drive MKX crossovers get very good gas mileage for the class.

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.
