What You Will Like

The Lincoln MKX starts at below $40,000, pricing it in competition with other entry level luxury SUVs and crossovers. The Lincoln MKX seats five and should be able to handle most light off-roading situations buyers might find themselves in, provided they splurge on the optional all-wheel drive system. The Lincoln MKX strikes a nice balance in terms of size-- it's big enough to be considered roomy on the inside, but not so big that it poses a challenge to pilot in the city.

Introduction

The 2016 Lincoln MKX is an all-new vehicle. Completely redesigned, this second generation of Lincoln’s luxury crossover SUV is intended to compete with the Lexus RX and Audi Q5. To do that, the 2016 MKX promises refinement throughout and a quiet, effortless ride underway.

Attractive new sheetmetal helps separate the Lincoln MKX from the mechanically similar Ford Edge. Externally, the new MKX bears little resemblance to the less-costly Edge.

Bodyside sculpting on the Lincoln looks softer, more graceful, though in profile it looks more like a wagon than before. Blade-shaped headlights help widen front-end appearance. In some trim levels, they’re full-LED. New reflectors add width to the low-beam headlight pattern.

Inside, the cockpit resembles Lincoln’s smaller MKC, but an array of pushbuttons has replaced the conventional shift lever. We consider the pushbuttons gimmicky, but others might welcome the change. Seeking distinctive interior trim, Lincoln offers a choice of Black Label design themes: Modern Heritage, Indulgence, 1920s Paris, and a fourth influenced by thoroughbred horse racing. Lincoln has been investing a great deal of effort into what it calls personalized luxury.

The standard engine is a 3.7-liter V6, rated 303 horsepower. A newly available 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 develops 335 horsepower. Teamed with the standard 6-speed automatic transmission, the 2.7-liter can reach 60 mph in 6 seconds.

Front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is optional.

New Lincoln Drive Control lets you choose Normal, Sport, or Comfort mode on all-wheel-drive MKXs. Adaptive shock absorbers help the MKX ride with impressive composure, even in Sport mode on harsh pavement.

Five occupants get plenty of legroom, with abundant cargo space. Some trims get 22-way power front seats with an active motion feature to reduce long-trip fatigue. Front seats now have thigh bolsters that deflate for easier entry/exit.

Revel audio systems are available, including a 13-speaker system. Three-mode, 19-speaker audio is included in Black Label versions, claiming home-theater quality. Also available is an embedded modem.

During 2016, the outdated MyLincolnTouch infotainment interface is being phased out and replaced with the more intuitive Sync 3, so be sure to get the latter.

Adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and pre-collision warning systems are available, along with surround-view cameras and automatic parking assistance. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given MKX five stars overall, with four-star rollover resistance. Good scores were reached in major tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), but not the small-overlap test.

Lineup

The 2016 Lincoln MKX comes in four trim levels: MKX Premiere ($38,100) comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, pushbutton start, keyless entry; a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leatherette upholstery; LED taillamps, and a rearview camera; Sync 3.

MKX Select ($41,390) gets leather seat upholstery, wood trim, a power tilt/telescopic steering wheel, 18-inch wheels; and hands-free power tailgate. MKX Reserve ($45,155) adds 20-inch wheels, HID headlights, heated/ventilated front seats, panoramic sunroof, blind-spot monitoring, and voice-activated navigation. MKX Black Label ($53,315) models get one of four coordinated packages of trim items. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

All-wheel drive ($2,495) is optional.

All versions have a rearview camera and rear parking sensors.

Walkaround

In its latest form, the MKX has evolved into a distinctive vehicle, especially noticeable in Black Label trim, and well removed from its cousin, the Ford Edge. Its styling is less dramatic than that of competitors, instead using a gentler approach to design.

Featuring subtle bodyside sculpting, the MKX looks more like a wagon than an SUV. It does not look like the Edge, except in proportions. Resemblance to the smaller Lincoln MKC is closer. The MKX has a slimmer grille and subtle LED taillamps atop rear fenders. Upper models get delicately curled LED daytime running lights and, at top level, full-LED headlights.

Interior

As part of its latest infotainment interface, Lincoln has brought back actual knobs, buttons, and switches, in a newly unified cabin with a reshaped dashboard. Traditionalists will cheer. (We cheered but no one heard because the windows were up.)

Rather than the usual gearshift lever, the MKX has a group of gray buttons to operate the transmission. What are often termed flying buttresses flank the space beneath the controls in the tall console. Oddly, the start button sits low on the console.

Base-level front seats are well-tailored but short on sculpting, with bottom cushions that are too short. Optional seats give comfort a big boost. Adult comfort is uppermost, with cargo flexibility running second.

Seating positions aren’t SUV-lofty, but the driver does sit somewhat high. In fact, taller drivers might not be able to lower the seat sufficiently. The available 22-way power seats are worth considering. Inflatable bladders alter the bolstering three ways. Plenty of new noise-reducing measures help dull drivetrain sounds.

Getting in and out is easy, even in the back seat which is short on support and contouring. Seating three, the back bench is nearly flat. The available panoramic roof steals head space from taller passengers.

Seatbacks fold for greater cargo space, but not fully flat. With back seats down, cargo space tops 73 cubic feet, and the load floor is relatively low.

Driving Impressions

Ride comfort remains a prime MKX virtue, but the 2016 model also feels better connected to the pavement than did the first-generation version. Handling feels more intimate as well. Depending on engine, too, acceleration is swifter than ever.

Picking the new twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 costs more, but enthusiastic drivers might see it as a sensible expense. Also found in Ford F-150 pickups and the Edge crossover, the 2.7-liter makes 335 horsepower under the Lincoln hood, producing more power at lower engine speeds. While real engine sounds are suppressed, Ford injects artificial engine noises into the MKX cabin.

Transmission performance is fine, with quick, clean downshifts. Having only six speeds can mean less hesitation in determining the correct gear. Sport mode lets you paddle-shift downward without lurching or uncertain delay.

Variable dampers filter out road vibration, yielding a smooth ride. Front-wheel-drive MKXs automatically set the damping, but with all-wheel drive, the driver can alter settings via a configuration screen. Optional variable-ratio steering can alter assist, in accord with road speed.

In base trim, the front-drive MKX is EPA-rated at 17/26 mpg City/Highway. Hardly frugal, but not surprising with a 4,600-pound vehicle. All-wheel drive sinks the figures to just 16/23 mpg. The 2.7-liter engine is just a hair better.

Summary

The all-new Lincoln MKX is a refined crossover SUV with a smooth ride and quiet cabin. Unique styling, a high level of premium features and luxurious trim differentiates the MKX from the Ford Edge.

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.

Options

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.
