Lincoln MKX Facelift

The 2011 Lincoln MKX luxury crossover features the exclusive MyLincoln TouchTM driver connect technology. Power-train enhancements include a new 3.7-liter Duratec V6 engine capable of developing 305 horsepower and 280 lb. ft. of torque. the dramatic improvement of the MKX extends to all areas of the vehicle: new features and technologies not available anywhere else, new exterior design, new interior design with increased use of genuine materials, new power-train with unsurpassed fuel economy, improved driving dynamics and new tires and wheels all combined to deliver an incredible luxury experience. The electronic finish panel on the 2011 Lincoln MKX proves all the advantages of this touch-sensitive technology in a beautiful, engaging package. In addition to the usual audio and climate control features, the touch-sensitive technology also operates the volume and fan controls, which is exclusive to Lincoln. Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support allows the driver to set the speed of the vehicle and maintain it without using the accelerator pedal, and warns the driver and potential collision risk. MyKeyTM is designed to allow parents to encourage teenagers to drive safely and more fuel efficiently, and increase safety belt usage. The 18-inch tires have increased grip and more mounted on larger wheels than the outgoing product, helping enable enhanced stopping and improved handling. 20-inch wheels are also available. Both road noise and wind noise are significantly decreased in the 2011 MKX because of improvements found throughout the interior and exterior, including power-train. The engine increases the power, but does not increase the fuel consumption. The output is being transferred to the wheels through a 6-speed SelectShift AutomaticTM transmission which gives customers the option of a fun to shift manual experience. Improvements to engine hardware and power-train control strategies account for the gains in power and fuel economy. The flowing exterior design of the 2011 Lincoln MKX provides the perfect complement to the industry-leading technology of the luxury crossover and class-exclusive features. The interior of the model reflects an even greater emphasis on what defines Lincoln DNA: luxury, craftsmanship, genuine materials and sharper execution. The new MKX will be built in Canada.
