Unleash the Beast: The 2015 Lincoln MKX
The 2015 Lincoln MKX is up there competing with the likes of, Audi Q5, Lexus SRX, and Cadillac SRX. This 2 row luxury car belongs to the family of Ford edge, but it sets itself apart from its popular siblings that are loaded with a powerful V6 engine, climate controlled seats and leather seating. Carrying a price tag of around 40,000 US dollars which is similar to that of its competitors, it is loaded with more features and is easy to build and auction. Although MKX is made in Canada, it may have an appeal being an American luxury SUV, but besides all that no one can deny the fact that the Lincoln is giving a tough time to its new rivals that have better technology, better fuel economy and safety.
The 2015 Lincoln MKX can accommodate 5 passengers with the legroom of 39.6 inches in the rear-seat. Leather seating is standard in all the models and for those willing to have a more traditional look, wood trim is available for them, whereas carbon fibers weave is for those willing to have a more modern approach. There is flexibility in the vehicle for storing luggage. The rear seats can be folded to a 60/40 split in order to create more room. Passenger seats in the front are divided by a broad armrest. The Instrument cluster contains two 4.2-inch screens that are customizable, whereas right in the center of the dash board is an 8 inch color screen. The sync looks phenomenal with Mylincoln touch system.
The 2015 Lincoln MKX’s shape has a pretty similar shape to its ford edge siblings, but it looks a bit more impressive with the split-wing grille at the front and with unconventional back lights. Talking about the width of the vehicle, it goes across 87.5 inches. The Lincoln is pretty wide when compared with its competitors. This makes it look very strong and dominating. However the size of the vehicle causes trouble when trying to adjust it in confined spaces.
The 2015 Lincoln MKX uses 3.7-liter V6 which produces 305 horsepower. 6-speed automatic is the sole transmission that is offered that can be shifted easily with paddles available on the steering wheel. The MKX is a front wheel drive vehicle by default, however, that can be changed with the optional of all-wheel drive version. There was a time when the Lincoln MKX was known for its fuel economy with its figures of 18/26 for front wheel drive and 17/23 for all-wheel drive but it no longer stays in the fuel efficient zone anymore as its competitors Audi Q5, Acura RDX are extremely fuel efficient. The MKX can produce the torque of 280 lb-ft.
As mentioned above the price of the 2015 Lincoln MKX is around 40,000 US Dollars however the price increases up to 45,000 US Dollars if you are willing to buy an Elite version. An extra cost of 2000 US Dollars is for those willing to add all-wheel drive to their model.
The 2015 Lincoln MKX is one vehicle that will certainly make your presence felt on the road and worth every penny of it.
