Loading Comparison...


The Lincoln MKC compact crossover debuted as a 2015 model and fares well when compared to new premium models, such as the Cadillac XT5.

The 2017 Lincoln MKC comes with more standard equipment than last year’s model, including a power liftgate and an automatic-hold function. Also, automatic stop/start is now standard with the 2.0-liter engine and front-wheel drive (optional with all-wheel drive) on 2017 Lincoln MKC models. Lincoln began replacing its troubled MyLincoln Touch infotainment with SYNC 3 during 2015. The newer voice-controlled system can connect to smartphone apps, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The luxurious cabin is pleasantly detailed. Back-seat space is tight, especially with the panoramic sunroof.

Underway, MKC delivers well-controlled handling and responsive steering. MKC offers a choice of strong engines, each able to deliver a quick, healthy dose of vitality just when it’s needed. Both engines are turbocharged four-cylinders and both work with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The base 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine comes with front-wheel drive. Producing 240 horsepower, it’s strong enough to move the MKC swiftly from a stop.

The more powerful 2.3-liter EcoBoost comes with all-wheel drive. Making 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque, it delivers brisk performance, with 0-60 mph acceleration in about seven seconds.

The Lincoln MKC is built on the same foundation as the Ford Escape.

Crash-test scores are nothing to boast about, though the MKC has an impressive list of available active-safety features. In testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the MKC got four stars overall and for frontal-impact, with five stars for side-impact. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the MKC a Good rating in moderate frontal overlap and side-impact crash-tests, but the more difficult small-overlap test has not yet been performed. (The closely-related Ford Escape got a Poor score.)

A rearview camera comes standard. Upper trim levels add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. An optional Technology package includes adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, Active Park Assist with Park Out Assist, and forward collision warning.


Lincoln MKC comes in Premiere, Select, Reserve, and Black Label trim levels. All-wheel drive is available. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

MKC Premiere ($32,720) includes the 2.0-liter engine, rearview camera, heated power front seats and mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, pushbutton start and shift, power liftgate, nine-speaker audio, satellite radio, HID headlights, reverse sensors, SYNC 3, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

MKC Select ($35,720) upgrades with leather seating surfaces, power-folding mirrors, LED configurable daytime running lights, ambient lighting, a universal garage door opener, and a cargo cover. MKC Reserve ($39,485) gets the panoramic sunroof, navigation, hands-free power liftgate, heated/cooled front seats, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, embedded modem, and 110-volt outlet. Black Label ($45,475) comes with a choice of three interior themes, in one of three metallic body colors. Venetian leather seat upholstery, an Alcantara headliner, and 19-inch ebony-painted aluminum wheels are standard. Special perks include annual vehicle detailing. A Continuously Controlled Damping suspension is included on all except Premiere.

The 2.3-liter engine and all-wheel drive are optional.


Because they share a basic foundation, the Lincoln MKC has plenty in common with the Ford Escape. Viewed in profile, the similarities are evident. Peer more closely at the details, though, and the gracefully shaped Lincoln comes across as more enticing, even sensuous.

Lincoln’s version of the compact crossover has some sheetmetal of its own, and its roofline is an inch lower than the Ford Escape’s. Up front is a narrowed rendition of the split-wing grille that Lincoln has been using, coupled with HID headlights and LED accent lighting. At the rear, a clamshell-type liftgate helps gives the MKC a fresh, clean appearance, augmented by full-width taillights.


Filled with contrasting details, the Lincoln MKC interior looks fresh and airy, with an attractive, organic design.

Lincoln designers substituted pushbuttons for the traditional shift lever.

Centered on the dashboard is a large screen, providing infotainment via SYNC 3, which is easier to use than the old MyLincoln Touch setup. Thankfully, large knobs are used to adjust radio volume and tuning.

Front-seat occupants get roomy, comfortable accommodations, but the back seat is tight and cramped, especially for taller passengers. Cushioning lacks a luxury feel. If the MKC has a panoramic roof, six-footers can expect little head clearance.

Areas around the front and outboard rear occupants are padded with soft-touch materials. Top models get leather upholstery, and a vast panoramic roof that brightens the cabin.

Driving Impressions

In addition to strong turbocharged engines, the Lincoln MKC promises poised, confident handling. Steering is a high point, helping to deliver refined road behavior that compares favorable to a BMW X3. The Continuous Controlled Damping Suspension can yield a more responsive driving feel, or switch to a softer feel. The Sport setting is surprisingly firm for a Lincoln.

The MKC grips the pavement securely, leans little, and delivers subtly predictable steering. Lincoln Drive Control lets you program different characteristics: two steering-assist levels, two for performance, plus three suspension levels.

The MKC Premiere’s suspension is less impressive, with a bit less body control; but steering is similarly excellent.

Brakes on the MKC are tremendous: reassuring, devoid of touchiness, with a solid pedal feel.

The optional 2.3-liter engine produces rapid performance, with power to spare when passing or merging. Although the engine can become a bit coarse while accelerating, the cabin stays quiet.

Most models come with the 2.0-liter engine, which performs almost as strongly. Transmission downshifts can be a bit delayed, however.

Visibility is a sore spot. When parking, it’s hard to estimate the position of the vehicle’s corners. Lane-changing can be a challenge.

With front-wheel drive and the base 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine, the MKC is EPA-rated at 21/28 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. Add all-wheel drive and that estimate drops to 19/25 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. With stop/start technology and the 2.0-liter, the Combined estimate improves by 1 mpg.

The 2.3-liter EcoBoost comes only with all-wheel drive, EPA-rated at 18/25 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined. Both engines include a grille-shutter system that limits airflow through the engine bay, aiding fuel economy. Still, approaching EPA estimates in real-world driving is a challenge.


Lincoln MKC delivers a strong set of features for its price. A Ford-based Lincoln does not have the image of true luxury, on the order of Audi or Lexus, but the MKC spells luxury throughout, with its premium fittings.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
