New 2016 Lincoln MKX at Fort Dodge Ford Toyota for Fort Dodge, IA

The 2016 Lincoln MKX pairs stylish sheetmetal with high levels of standard features to help set it apart from the crossover crowd. It is a bigger and more sophisticated mid-size crossover than the one it replaces. The MKX has a more refined interior with additional technology features and a unique premium sound system. This vehicle competes with the Lexus RX and Acura MDX.

Under the MKX's Hood

The engine in the 2016 Lincoln MKX is a 3.7 liter V6 generating 300 hp, combined to a 6-speed automatic transmission and driving the front wheels. All wheel drive is optional. If you are looking for more power, a 330 horsepower, 2.7 liter EcoBoost V6 engine is available. Lincoln Drive Control is optional, letting the driver choose between Normal, Comfort and Sport modes.

Design of Lincoln MKX

The Lincoln MKX has a strong resemblance to the MKC, but its bigger size gives it greater proportions. The front features the familiar winged Lincoln grille that shows up on every new model, with some fine detailing to the headlights. Prominent fenders front and rear stretch back to a full-width LED taillamp assembly. The only blemish on the exterior is the gray-painted lower body and wheel arch cladding, which does not match the rest of the vehicle's upscale appearance. Lincoln has done an admirable job upgrading the interior, with newly available 22 way adjustable front seats that can automatically shift position to help alleviate muscle fatigue by selectively inflating and deflating one of 11 air bladders. The optional seats also feature a power thigh extender and a four-way power head restraint.

Do I need Sirius for my system?

It depends if it was part of the package when you purchase the car. One package will give you current traffic congestion and wrecks displayed on your unit, and the other will give you that and other services, such as movie times, nearby gas prices, stock info, sport feedback, and more.

Where is the cabin air filter located?

The cabin air filter is located behind the glove box.

Is the 4-wheel drive automatic or does it have to be put in gear?

It is automatic. There are no driver controls. When a wheel speed sensor detects a wheel turning at an rpm that it should not be for the speed the car is going, it will apply more power to it or brake, whichever is applicable.

Conclusions

The 2016 Lincoln MKX has plenty of electronic safety aids, which includes the list of an adaptive cruise control with automatic full stop braking, lane keeping assist, cross-traffic alert, a blind spot information system, and a 360-degree camera that can be activated while parking. The front camera is mounted on an articulated mount that pops out from behind the Lincoln star badge in the grille. A full suite of sonar sensors provide front, rear and side vehicle sensing systems, automatic parallel and perpendicular parking, and a system that even pulls the crossover out of a parking spot too.
