The 2014 Lincoln MKX posts respectable numbers in the EPA's fuel economy ratings--if you accept that it's not offered in a more fuel-efficient hybrid or clean-diesel model like some of its rivals.
Front-drive MKX models land at 19/26 mpg, while all-wheel-drive models drop several mpg, to 17/23. Because of that, we'd strongly recommend the front-wheel-drive mode, unless you regularly encounter deep snow or mud.
To get this sort of mileage out of a rather large, powerful V-6, Ford has the engine's fuel injectors shut off completely during deceleration; the variable valve-timing system also helps.
Mileage of the 2014 Lincoln MKX is quite good, provided you go with front-wheel drive; there's no hybrid in the lineup, though.
