2015 Lincoln MKC Model and Features!
The Lincoln with its various models is difficult to keep track of, but the MKC stands out as a crossover. It is sort of based on the Ford Escape, even though is incorporates some of the fantastic features of the Audi Q5 in terms of exteriors. The lift-gate and the integrated tail lights seem to have been borrowed from the Q5, but the winged grille is all Lincoln. The MKC has a 0.52 gallons turbocharged four cylinder engine that cranks up a decent 240 horsepower of energy at 270 Lb/ft of torque. Also, Lincoln gives you the option to upgrade the MKC to a 0.61 gallons turbocharged four cylinder engine which produces impressive 285 horsepower energy at 305 Lb/ft of torque. Front wheel drive is standard but it can be upgraded to all wheel drive. With this kind of power emanating from the MKC, it feels more like driving around in a sporty hatchback than a crossover SUV; and the upgraded 0.61gallons turbocharged cylinder has only AWD. All MKCs employ a six speed automatic transmission gearbox.
The new 2015 Lincoln MKC is a five passenger luxury compact crossover SUV. It incorporates 18 inches alloy wheels, xenon headlights, LED tail lights, heated mirrors, rear parking sensors and privacy glass, keyless ignition and entry. In terms of technology, you will find an 8 inch touch screen with MyLincoln Touch interface, a rearview camera, voice controls and a nine-speaker audio system. It also has a dual zone climate control, driver memory settings, heated front seat and a eight way power driver seat. On the inside, it constitutes tasteful woodwork and leatherette upholstery. The MyLincoln Touch, ideally, handles Bluetooth, audio, navigation and other vehicular functions. The MKC’s back seats have adequate leg room, but it can get a little uncomfortable fro really tall people. Cargo room could also do much better for the Lincoln MKC. The MKC offers 25.2 cubic meters behind the second row, while it is 53.1 cubic meters with the rear seats folded down. In terms of safety, the Lincoln MKC incorporates standard stability controls, anti lock disc brakes, front seat side airbags, a driver knee airbag, and full length side curtain airbags. Also standard MyKeys are also available which parents can use to set parameters in terms of maximum speed as well as radio volume for teenagers behind the wheel. Blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert and front collision alert are also in place as optional safety measures in the Lincoln MKC.
The upgraded 0.61 gallons turbocharged four cylinder of the MKC includes some added features like power folding side mirrors. It also includes leather upholstery, ambient lighting, an eight way power passenger seat and a cargo cover. Also, since the MKC is available in three packages- Reserve, Select and Premier-they come with some more advantages depending on the model you pick. The Reserve gets you a sun roof, hands-free power lift-gate with a foot sensor.
In terms of a car for the family, the new 2015 Lincoln MKC does okay in its category.
