Vehicle that comes as 2018 Lincoln MKX will introduce many new equipment and approach to luxurious SUV segment. Carefully designed as ever, it is elegant, but on the other hand powerful crossover. Made to compete with best vehicles in class. This mid-size SUV is also more attractive than bigger models in its family because of the price, and on the other hand, offers more power than compact models. Engine is powerful again, styling can match any other vehicle in the class, so everything was prepared for major impact of the 2018 MKX.
2018 Lincoln MKX engine
Power source of the 2018 Lincoln MKX is 2.7-l EcoBoost V6 unit. This drivetrain could be found under the hood of the new Ford F-150. It is obvious that two models could have similar performance. This twin-turbocharged can make 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque in Ford’s truck, and numbers could be same for SUV. Mileage will be better for sure. Lincoln is aiming at 24 mpg combined, but we have no info from first testing if engineers are going to make it easily. Transmission is 6-speed auto that sends power to front wheels by default. All-wheel drive is also prepared for higher price.
2018 Lincoln MKX redesign
A lot of buttons will be positioned on the steering wheel. Except standard commands, there will be driving mode selection buttons, which are new for 2018 Lincoln MKX. This is not the only innovation. Seating is much more comfortable than before, with warming and aerated areas. Both steering wheel and seats are covered by leather. Interior includes more timber, steel and high-quality products. One of these is new MyLincoln Touch. This infotainment system is derived from MyFord program, so many functions and possibilities are the same. As a major lack of this system is its speed, so we hope by 2018 MKX, it should be fixed.
