2008 Lincoln MKX
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Dynamically, the Acura MDX is a better-handling vehicle than the 2008 Lincoln MKX, as is the rear-wheel-drive Cadillac SRX.

If you put a high value on performance, the SRX and BMW X5 offer optional V-8 engines.

Quick Specs
8.2
Lincoln has a long road back to regaining its status as a meaningful luxury brand, and the 2008 MKX is a step in the right direction.
8.0
The 2009 Cadillac SRX enters its last year as a good-looking and functional crossover, but tight third-row seating and poor fuel efficiency remain as blemishes on an otherwise solid package.
8.4
The 2009 Lexus RX 350 is a well-liked, competitive utility vehicle that has everything but personality.
8.8
The 2008 Acura MDX has a little more passion than most larger SUVs, with no less practicality.
8.4
The 2008 BMW X5 is better than ever, but could use more dramatic styling and an iDrive transplant.
