Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Except for the irksome pushbutton shifter, performance is strong and satisfying with either V6 engine. Each provides smooth power flow. Even with all-wheel drive, the standard 3.7-liter V6 propels the Lincoln MKX adequately. Still, the twin-turbo V6 feels stronger and might be worth the $2,000 premium. Acceleration to 60 mph with the 2.7-liter V6 takes about six seconds, a quick performance.

Gear ratios in the 6-speed automatic feel correct, and it delivers clean, quick downshifts. Sport mode allows using paddle shifters to drop down by more than one gear, without harshness or delay.

Adaptive shock absorbers and a carefully controlled suspension yield an absorbent, well-composed ride, along with top-notch road manners, even in Sport model with bigger tires. Patchy pavement seldom causes harsh reactions, while steering is impressively accurate.

On all-wheel-drive models, Lincoln Drive Control provides Normal, Sport, and Comfort modes. Front-drive versions automatically set the suspension damping.

Optional variable-ratio steering can alter the level of power assistance, based on steering-wheel rotation. Amount of boost diminishes at higher speeds to improve stability, but increases at low speeds to ease parking.

Gas mileage isn’t great. With the 3.7-liter V6 and front-drive, the Lincoln MKX is EPA-rated at 17/25 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive sinks those figures to 16/23 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined. The 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 is EPA-rated at 18/25 mpg City/Highway with front-drive, and 17/24 mpg City/Highway with all-wheel drive.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Although the early Lincoln MKX bore a strong resemblance to the Ford Edge, with chrome pieces added, the current generation presents a more distinguished, firmly premium aura. Soft bodyside sculpting conveys a graceful tone, which might even be called voluptuous, though its identity as a wagon is clear when viewed from the side.

Up front is a big dual-wing grille, accented on some versions by an elegant curl of LED daytime running lights. Upper models get full LED lighting, and all look contemporary. LED taillights stretch across the liftgate.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Stylish comfort and stretch-out room await up to five occupants in an Lincoln MKX. Both the second row and the cargo area rank above the norm in spaciousness.

Flying buttresses bracket the high-mounted console, though its storage area isn’t the most accessible. Instead of a familiar shift lever, the driver reaches for a set of pushbuttons to change gears, a setup that’s not universally appreciated.

Taller drivers might have difficulty seeing the gauge tops, because the seat won’t lower sufficiently. The optional 22-way power front seats may be just the ticket for easing fatigue on long trips. Front occupants get plenty of storage space, in the console as well as a covered bin. Because ride height is on the low side, entry and exit are easy.

Adults should be comfortable enough in the second row, unless the panoramic moonroof if installed, as it cuts into headroom. However, the three-person bench lacks contouring, and is essentially flat. The seatback folds down, but not flat. Lincoln MKX seats up to five in its two rows.

With back seats folded, cargo volume tops 73 cubic feet, dipping to 37 with those seats upright. The power tailgate rises as you shake a foot below the back bumper. Plenty of noise-reducing techniques help subdue drivetrain sounds, though Lincoln pipes in some imitation engine sounds.


New Car Test Drive

To some buyers, the Lincoln brand itself doesn’t quite qualify as full-bore luxury, but the Lincoln MKX is a refined and capable premium crossover. Pile on options and the price can reach $60,000, but that’s not unusual and this Lincoln delivers a lot for those dollars. Black Label trim is classy, but costly. We like it.
