We'll cover everything from performance specs to the safety ratings and the interior, so you can decide if it's your dream ride! Give us a call if you have any questions. 

2018 Lincoln MKX: Glimpse a Show-Stopping Interior   

When you and four of your favorite people want to experience the luxury appointments and features of a two-row SUV, the 2018 Lincoln MKX is waiting. Premium materials and lighting set the stage for your heightened driving experience. Upper trims feature plush leather seating and aluminum or wood inlays, and available ambient lighting glows gently, setting the mood for the ride ahead.  

Slide into the cabin, and you'll be impressed by the sheer amount of space you find, no matter where you sit. Legroom comes to 42.8 inches in the front and 39.6 inches in the rear, helping tall adults feel at home throughout the cabin. 

Refined Handling & Engine Performance Specs 

The Lincoln MKX has two powertrain options. The base engine is a 3.7L V6, which delivers 303 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque to handle your daily commuting. If you want some extra acceleration for highway driving, choose the twin-turbocharged 2.7L V6, good for 335 horsepower and a whopping 380 lb-ft of torque.

Test drivers have found that the Lincoln MKX has cushioned handling, resulting in part from the available adaptive suspension. Sensors monitor the road conditions and adjust the suspension automatically to absorb the bumps and jitters that come your way. The optional Intelligent All-Wheel Drive enhances handling even more by continuously monitoring traction and delivering power to maximize it. 

Five Stars for Safety-with Features to Match

Safety is a forteof the 2018 Lincoln MKX, and that shows in the safety scores bestowed on it by the NHTSA. The Lincoln MKX earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, with a perfect five-out-of-five stars in both the front and side crash tests. It also received the top score of Good on all six IIHS crash tests, confirming that the standard Personal Safety System™does its job well. 

Aside from passive safety features, such as airbags and front seatbelt pretensioners, what technology does the Lincoln MKX have to help prevent accidents in the first place? Its available driver-assist suite includes features like Lane Keeping Assist to help keep you from drifting, as well as Active Park Assist to help steer your vehicle into (or out of) tight parking spaces.
