Choosing an SUV is a personal choice. Fortunately, there are two good choices at your Lincoln dealer. The smaller 2016 Lincoln MKC holds its own as a compact, yet spacious five-seat crossover.

Power and Performance

The Lincoln MKX offers a choice of engines. The standard MKX is powered by a swift V-6. This powertrain generates 278 lb.ft. of torque to assist 303 horses under the hood. Available across the line-up, a twin-turbo Ecoboost engine boosts power without sacrificing fuel economy. This smart powertrain creates 335 horsepower and 380 lb.ft. of torque. The Lincoln MKC boasts a turbo four-cylinder engine. This improves fuel economy and highway cruising range while ensuring ample performance. While the SUV enjoys 240 horsepower, it is the kick of 270 lb.ft. of torque that makes it so competitive. Higher editions offer the option of an even more powerful 2.3-liter EcoBoost powertrain. Active grille shutters help reduce fuel use and improve aerodynamics.

The MKC smaller size offers the advantages of a tighter turn circle and a lighter build. Precision handling, however, is a hallmark of both SUVs. For a better ride, Lincoln offers Drive Control. This system continuously controls damping, reacting to the road in milliseconds. Since drivers can choose from comfort, normal or sport settings, you can control your driving experience.


The dynamic elegance of the all-new MKX sets it apart from its peers. The MKC goes in a sportier direction. Both are fronted by a split-wing front grille that seems to flow from headlamp to headlamp. Both offer luxury cabins with today’s must-have amenities. These include standard power seating with leather upholstery options. Dual-zone climate controls are at the ready with the remote starter app. Heated and cooled front seats invite you to relax, regardless of the temperature outside.

Bigger, the MKZ offers 108 cubic feet of passenger volume while the MKC claims more than 98 cu.ft. Front seat headroom and legroom are remarkably similar in both SUVs. The backseat is larger in the MKZ, but clever engineering has ensured that the MKC back row is comfortable for adult passengers. The MKZ offers 68 cu.ft. of total cargo area while the MKC offers 53 cu.ft. overall.

Both Lincolns are packed with a safety canopy system, including a driver’s knee airbag. The SOS post-crash alert system can summon help, even if you can’t. For better highway driving, Lincoln offers adaptive cruise control on both SUVs. This system includes a forward collision warning with advanced brake support. Lane-keeping sensors trigger steering wheel vibrations and even apply steering torque to get the vehicle back on track. A blind spot monitor can signal the driver to watch out for approaching rear traffic. The active park assist feature can eliminate the frustration of parallel or perpendicular parking. The Lincoln MKX earned all five stars when tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It adds more safety features such as adaptive headlamps and inflatable rear outboard safety belts. The 360-degree camera system makes low-speed situations safer.
