2015 Lincoln MKX Redesign, Release and Changes - Lincoln Cars Review
Welcome to Raiacars.com, The next review about 2015 Lincoln MKX Redesign, Release and Changes from Lincoln cars. Let's see more specification, concept and review details for this cars below.
2015 Lincoln MKX is the first SUV model of this company which was presented outside the American continent. In fact, this model was presented at the Motor Show in Beijing 2014. Although presented as a concept, it clearly shows the new aggressive design and a new direction of development. The new MKX will be on sale in the fall of 2014. Sale will start at US markets, and will expand to other world markets. It is interesting that this is one of the first Lincoln models, which will serve to win the non-American markets.There’s never been a better time to be a car shopper. Unrelenting and abundant competition has raised the bar in all segments and the end result is an automotive landscape in which excellence is the new normal. While this is great news for consumers, it’s bad news for the 2015 Lincoln MKX. Though the MKX is a passable entry in the luxury crossover segment, it’s less accomplished than most other models in its class. In today’s automotive environment, passable simply isn’t good enough.The Lincoln MKX is the brand’s mid-size crossover. It offers the luxury accommodations and high seating position that premium crossover buyers seek out in vehicles such as the longtime favorite Lexus RX, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Mercedes M-Class. The MKX is joined by a smaller crossover for 2015, the Ford Escape-based MKC. The MKX is itself a near mechanical twin of the Ford Edge, but with a much nicer interior, a quieter ride, and a larger engine.An all-new version of the MKX is expected soon, for the 2016 model year. For 2015, Lincoln has made no changes to the MKX, which was last redesigned for 2011, bringing new sheetmetal, a much-improved interior, and the love-it-or-hate-it MyLincoln Touch infotainment interface. It’s still a handsome model among its crossover contemporaries, avoiding flashiness with just the right amount of flair. Some are put off by the newest Lincoln grille design, but it works here much better than it does on the larger MKT, for example. The MKX’s interior is especially well finished, with nice quality wood, leather, and trim. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard and look fine, while Lincoln offers 20s and 22s on top of those.To understand why this Lincoln feels so middling, it’s best to start by taking a look at the areas in which it falls short. Its biggest frailty concerns performance. Both acceleration and braking are merely mediocre a notable deficiency in a segment dominated by models that can snap your head back with a tap of the pedal. Also, its automatic transmission can feel slow-witted due to sluggish downshifts. Another weakness has to do with the crossover’s MyLincoln Touch electronics interface, which can be challenging to learn and frustrating to use.
