Lincoln MKC

The Lincoln Motor Company, also known simply as Lincoln, is a division of the Ford Motor Company that sells luxury vehicles under the Lincoln brand, primarily in North America. The current Lincoln model range in the United States includes two sedans, the MKS and MKZ, two crossovers, the MKT and MKX, and one SUV, the Navigator. Lincoln also introduced at the 2013 NAIAS auto show an all-new compact crossover, the MKC concept. Now, the company has just introduced the production version of the Lincoln MKC.

The Lincoln MKC has nothing spectacular compared to the previewing concept. The only things that have changed are the conventional door handles which are fitted on the vehicle. Aggressiveness of the concept is slightly diminished at the production version, meaning that the exhaust system and taillight graphics look more peaceful. The crossover continues the new design approach introduced by Lincoln once the 2013 MKZ model appeared. This means that there is a split-wing front grille and the wraparound liftgate. The model can also be equipped with an optional all-glass Vista Roof.

The 2015 Lincoln MKC production version is powered by a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine producing 240 HP (177 kW) at 5,500 rpm and 270 lb-ft (366 Nm) at 3,000 rpm, or by an all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine outputting 275 HP (202 kW) at 5,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 300 lb-ft (406 Nm) available at 3,000 rpm. The standard CUV will sit on a set of 18 inch alloy wheels, although some 19 inch ones are available for some extra money. A front- wheel drive setup comes as standard, but it can be replaced by an all- wheel drive one.

When discussing the inside of the 2015 Lincoln MKC, we have to notice the Lincoln's signature push-button gear shifter and plush leathers with French stitching. A Bridge of Weir leather and authentic wood trim, along with a re-style leather-wrapped steering wheel are also available. They will be seen on future Lincoln models, too. Let’s not forget to mention the 14-speaker THX-certified sound system, 8-inch touchscreen display and SYNC with MyLincoln Touch. The vehicle will enter production only at the end of 2014.
